Village Burger Bar, named for the West Village location where it originated, is expanding to a fifth location across from Klyde Warren Park in December.
Recently acquired by Firebird Restaurant Group, the company that owns El Fenix, Tortaco, Meso Maya, Taqueria La Ventana, and Snuffers, CEO Mike Karns said in a press release that his company is planning on “taking the brand to the next level” with multiple locations across North Texas, including the new Downtown restaurant.
This upcoming outpost was chosen to serve the bustling area near the Park, Perot Museum, and American Airlines Center. It’ll serve the same menu available at the other locations in Allen, Plano, and North Dallas including “cheffed-up” burgers featuring ingredients like blue cheese crumbles, cage-free fried eggs, avocado aioli, and dried cranberries (not on the same burger, of course), along with paninis, sandwiches, salads, and craft beer on tap.
Construction is currently underway on the new restaurant at 1845 Woodall Rogers Freeway. Firebird expects for the location to debut by the end of December.
