Coming soon to Garland is BurgerFi, a Delray Beach, Florida-based "urban burger stand" that's rapidly expanding across the country. Specializing in all-natural Angus burgers, craft beer, Kobe beef hot dogs, shakes and concretes, the BurgerFi concept sounds similar to Austin export Hopdoddy Burger Bar— albeit much larger, with 16 locations already open and several dozen more franchises in the works.
Like Hopdoddy, there's a focus on being eco-friendly; each location "is built according to environmentally sustainable best practices, and includes earth-friendly elements, like chairs that are made from recycled Coke bottles, tables made out of compressed recycled wood, and large fans that use 66% less electricity."
The menu's also got some In-N-Out-esque influences, like a "secret menu" offering items like "Alternative Style Fries" that are "smothered with a mixture of grilled diced onions, American cheese, mustard, and BurgerFi® sauce" (sound familiar?) and the option of getting fries "limp" or well-done, plus the ability to have burgers wrapped in lettuce instead of a bun (a popular choice for the low-carb set that's typically known as "protein-style"). Burger buns are cleverly branded with the BurgerFi logo; fries are hand-cut and onion rings are of the massive variety.
BurgerFi is currently staffing up, so expect it to open soon.
