Traveling to Southlake on HWY 114 you might have noticed a new stop on the big, blue road sign announcing eateries you can look forward to at the next exit. Bolo Italian Grill, a quick casual eatery blending the best of burritos and Italian cuisine, opened in Southlake a few weeks ago, and has quickly made its way to the top of the food chain for locals and visitors alike. The restaurant, located at 260 North Kimball Ave. #264, is open seven days a week for lunch and dinner from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Dallas Cowboys kicker, Dan Bailey stopped by for the grand opening on Jan. 9, where guest were treated to a choice of entree (bolo wrap, pasta bowl or salad) and a side soup (Italian wedding or tomato basil), or opt for Bolo dip and chips. As guests were waiting in line they received peach Bellini’s—which made the experience all the more enjoyable.

Coined by restaurant veteran and Bolo owner Judson Phillips, Bolo caters to cravings for customized flavors with an emphasis on bright, seasonal ingredients hand prepared in a warm, vibrant atmosphere. Phillips designed his one-of-a-kind handheld pastas concept that blends the best of Texas with the best of Italy to deliver something original. 

The restaurant’s signature Bolo flatbread wrap made from angel hair pasta, organic flour, and Italian seasonings hugs a heaping helping of angel hair or gluten free penne pasta with responsibly raised proteins, fresh veggies, house-grown herbs, a choice of four cheeses, and hot or cold sauces handcrafted by a local chef and recreated daily in-house. Guests can also choose from pasta bowls or seasonal salads, and every entrée can be “bambini-sized” into a kid-friendly portion to please even the pickiest eaters.

“Bolo is an exciting, modern idea that blends the best of quick casual timing with the personalized touches of a custom meal,” said Phillips. “We give you everything you want, nothing you don’t. Contemporary lifestyles call for lots of meals eaten outside the home, but Bolo’s menu is so customizable, every bite tastes homemade and handmade just the way you like it.”
