Since no one else has replied, I'll state the obvious: Richardson Bike Mart. It's been 5 years or so since I got my fit done there, but I was pretty happy with it. I think the stem was the only thing that needed to be swapped out...
The only issue I had was that the fitter insisted that my seat was at the right height, and in fact said it "could go higher". It felt off while at the store, and it felt off for the first 20+ mile ride I did with the new bike, and it wasn't until I lowered it a few mm that it didn't hurt to ride.
If I were to need that service again, I'd probably check out Plano Cycling and Fitness in Plano just to get a different perspective - both are nearby. Plus their "basic fit" service is a little cheaper.
