Benaddiction restaurant is open and raising money for a good cause

Rock-n-roll-themed breakfast food truck Benaddiction has opened its sit-down restaurant. The truck is still rolling Thursday through Sunday, but now you can get the breakfast sandwiches, salads and other food any day of the week at the restaurant. It’s located at 3015 W. Bullard Ave., at the southwest corner of Bullard and Marks and is open 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.

The menu is a little different from the truck. Pancakes are now available, along with appetizers such as Buffalo wings and onion rings. Customers can get the breakfast sandwiches on their own, or, since the business can actually use plates now, get them served open faced with french fries or breakfast potatoes. And clearly, it’s not just breakfast food, with wraps, salads and burgers on the menu too. “Any meal you want whenever you want it,” says owner James Caples.

The restaurant is little — about 1,000 square feet and seven tables — and the walls are decorated with album covers. The tables are painted with chalkboard paint and customers are encouraged to get artsy with chalk while waiting for their food. Customer art often gets photographed and put on the Benaddiction’s Facebook page.

And here’s a fundraiser the restaurant is hosting that just tugs on your heart strings: On July 27, a Sunday, the restaurant and the truck will donate a percentage of its sales to Hinds Hospice Angel Babies. Part of the Hinds Hospice Center for Grief and Healing, the program helps families whose unborn children have been diagnosed with a terminal condition, or who have experienced miscarriages, stillbirth or other infant death. July 27 would have been the 3rd birthday of the owner’s daughter, Caylie Burke Caples. She died at 3 months from sudden infant death syndrome and the program helped the family heal.
