Plano, TX (RestaurantNews.com) Original ChopShop, a neighborhood eatery crafting ‘Just Feel Good Food’ from whole ingredients, continues rapid expansion, opening its third DFW restaurant in University Park at 6401 Hillcrest Avenue on Nov. 16.

Our multi-faceted menu will make it the perfect place for an on-the-go breakfast, study session, lunch meeting or dinner for the family.”
