I Heart Mac & Cheese, a fresh and exciting fast-casual dining franchise is opening several Texas locations, including Lubbock.

This is a restaurant concept (currently only in New York, Georgia and Florida) that has taken macaroni and cheese to a whole new level, allowing you to add in veggies, meats, and more. They offer everything from lobster to quinoa, plus soup and salad. You get to build your dish according to their website, which boasts some beautiful food pictures.

Of course, they do have other items besides macaroni and cheese on their menu, but we're guessing folks won't be going to a place called I Heart Mac & Cheese and ordering burgers.

The opening is set for the first quarter of 2020 according to a story at QSR Magazine, and they have not yet announced an exact location. That same article mentions as many as 20 more I Heart Mac & Cheese locations opening throughout Texas, including College Station and Waco.

We are fans of great mac and cheese, so we're ready for this restaurant to get here. We'll keep an eye on more opening news for you.
