The first local Juicy Burger franchise opened at the southeast’s Windmill Lane Plaza. Juicy Burger got its start in San Diego by Nick Walpert, who also owns Seattle-based Pyramid Breweries.
Replacing the shuttered, 2,675-square-foot Bachi Burger and sitting next door to the recently opened Opulicious Poke, operators Dominic and Cindy Case are serving USDA Angus beef patties on the customizable, counter-service menu.
Diners begin with a choice of a chicken breast, veggie garden, or half-pound beef base, then a selection of a plain, brioche, sesame seed, or lettuce wrap buns, plus a roster of sauces, toppings, and cheeses.
House creations include a barbecue cowboy option and a grilled spinach burger. Also on the menu, eight flavors of chicken wings and appetizers including mini corn dogs, fried cheese curds, and mac and cheese, or fried zucchini wedges.
Still on the way to the plaza, Hidaka Sushi, Brunch & Bagels, and Rivas Mexican Grill.
Juicy Burgers, 1470 E. Windmill Lane, 725-206-5194. Open daily from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
