We sure do love 'going out to eat' here in Abilene and judging by the looks of things, that won't change anytime soon. There are a number of new restaurants opening this year, so belly up and get ready for some new grub.

Make sure you keep checking this page for more updates.

    Chipotle Mexican Grill

    3800 South Clack (South Clack & Ridgemont Drive)

    According to their Facebook page, Chipotle serves "Burritos, Tacos, Bowls, Salads. Not necessarily in that order".

    In my opinion, it's not what they serve, it's how they make what they serve.

    At Chipotle, you can expect the best, freshest of ingredients.

    We don't have an scheduled grand opening yet.

    Raising Cane's Chicken Fingers

    1602 E. Overland Trail

    What makes Raising Cane's unique is that they only serve chicken strips, french fries, Texas Toast, cole slaw, and gravy.

    That's it - and it's delicious!

    Raising Cane's should open between May and June.

    Sam's Southern Eatery

    Dunkin Donuts

    Location Unknown

    According to the Abilene Reporter News, Dunkin Donuts expect to open in Abilene by year's end.

    You might remember, we had Dunkin Donuts back in the day and now that the world is amidst a java craze, DD is definitely welcome in the Key City.
