The Dallas-Fort Worth restaurant scene is booming, so it’s no surprise more concepts are popping up each month hoping to get in on the growing industry. Here are five restaurant openings you should know about before dining out this weekend.

Chills360: Fort Worth

Have you seen the rolled ice cream videos taking over social media? Now you’ll be able the action up close at the upcoming Chills360 near West 7th in Fort Worth. Once you choose your ice cream and toppings, their talented staff will roll out your ingredients on the icy cold disc that freezes the product. They then mix in your add-ins and roll up the product to create those gorgeous pinwheel rolls. All of this happens before your eyes and is ready in less than two minutes. It’s definitely worth venturing out for.

Chills360 opens in Fort Worth on December 18.
