Juiceland opened its eighth location yesterday in the Village at Westlake Hills shopping center at 701 S. Loop 360. The store joins local burger titan P. Terry’s, and the center will soon welcome beloved Austin businesses Tacodeli and Kerbey Lane. Juiceland’s new location will offer the same menu of juices, smoothies

Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” alumni Jason Boso has opened a location of his Dallas-based Twisted Root Burger Co. chain at 510 W. 26th St. The restaurant located near the University of Texas serves various all-natural burgers, fries and shakes (along with gluten-free options), and features velvet pop art paintings of Longhorn greats Vince Young and Mack Brown

“I couldn’t be more excited about this expansion, and I think we’re weird enough to fit in just fine,” said Boso, who opened his first Dallas location in 2005. “I wasn’t born in Austin, but I got there as quickly as I could.”
