Over a period of less three years, a trio of proudly vegan fast casual restaurants have shuttered in the exact same Centennial location and will very soon be replaced by a celebration of charbroiled burgers, chili and hot dogs.
Launched back in June, Vegan Bliss wasn’t able to reach its six-month anniversary at the Centennial Square retail center, located at the intersection of Centennial Parkway and Durango Drive.
Aiming to officially debut this week and overseen by the same operators as Vegan Bliss, the new Ernie’s Burgers counter-service concept is announcing it will be open daily from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., closing at 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
Promising its charbroiled burgers are prepared with “100% Angus beef,” a previewed menu includes the namesake “Ernie”, stacked with American cheese and a “special burger aioli,” plus barbecue, blue cheese and jalapeno options and the “Sunrise,” topped with a fried egg, hash browns, bacon, sausage, Cheddar cheese, and a choice of jam.
Guests can also build their own burger, beginning with a beef patty, or chicken breast. Other selections include chili dogs and a grilled cheese sandwich, plus tater tots, or waffle sweet potato fries as a side dish.
