Mexican Sugar bringing its popular hacienda-style cuisine to Uptown’s McKinney & Olive building

The brain trust at FB Society (formerly Front Burner Restaurants) seems set on cornering the upscale dining market of an important upscale corner in Dallas.

The company is poised to announce that Mexican Sugar, their Hacienda-style Mexican brand, will open a location this summer in Uptown Dallas’ McKinney & Olive building. That’s the towering structure that anchors the corner of McKinney Ave. and Olive Street.

Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse occupies a chunk of the building’s ground floor, but more notable is that FB Society’s Haywire restaurant sits across the street and their 60 Vines concept is a dining beacon at the Crescent complex, a short walk away.

Mexican Sugar is widely praised for its upscale casual menu, broad patio, handcrafted food and expansive tequila selection. FB Society’s original brands include Haywire, Mexican Sugar, Sixty Vines, Velvet Taco, Ida Claire, Legacy Hall and Son of a Butcher. FB Society’s been steadfast supporters of Escape Hatch, and we’ve been long-time fans of theirs.

Mexican Sugar Uptown will trace a slightly smaller footprint than its Plano and Las Colinas siblings, though the interior design will be no less stylish. The company isn’t stopping with Dallas, either. New Mexican Sugar locations are in the plans for Austin and Houston.
