One of California’s tried and true burger chains has now opened in North Richland Hills, Texas. The newest FATBURGER is located in the shopping center at the northwest corner of Grapevine Highway and Precinct Line. The 70-year-old burger chain based Los Angeles has grown to include burger stands in 19 countries. The newly launched storefront is part of a co-branded concept with Buffalo’s Express, a wings specialty store.
Co-owner Maisha Bankhead said they opened their doors on June 1 and had a line out the door all day.
“We open at 11 a.m. but they started lining up at 10:30 a.m. and it went that way all day, which has been a challenge with social distancing requirements, but we made it work,” Bankhead said in an interview with Fort Worth Culture Map. “There are a lot of people who’ve had Fatburger in California who’ve had a built-up craving.”
While the franchise is based on the beloved Fatburger, there are great eats for just about anyone. Fatburger’s menu includes Fat and Skinny fries, sweet potato fries, the Impossible burger, turkeyburgers, chicken sandwiches, and milkshakes.
Buffalo’s Express is a well-known fast-casual chicken wing chain, founded 35 years ago in Georgia. It is currently co-branded with 72 Fatburger restaurants.
Their menu includes bone-in or boneless wings with sauces that include Scorchin, Carolina Fire BBQ, Asian Sesame, Coconut Jerk, Honey Garlic, and Sweet Bourbon BBQ. They bring the wings out with celery, carrots, and blue cheese, ranch or honey mustard dressing.
The North Richland Hills Fatburger and Buffalo’s Express is at 6039 Precinct Line Rd., #180 and is open daily from 11 a.m.-10 p.m.
