Amar has garnered national acclaim from the likes of the Travel Channel's Bizarre Foods for its use of tandoori, dry fish, and sweat-inducing ghost peppers, as well as other unique takes on the pizza pie, like Philly steak, gyro, and seafood.

A grand opening for the new location - at 32046 Groesbeck - is set for Jan. 14. In the meantime, the store is soft open.
