Beef eaters take note: A new burger is headed to town.
Burger Nation opens in mid-May at 3112 N. Navarro St., Suite A.
Once open, the 2,000-square-foot eatery will offer fully customizable hamburgers, wings, milkshakes and more, said Tony Mistry, who co-owns the eatery with his brother, Mike Mistry, both of Victoria. Turkey and veggie burgers will also come into play.
The goal is to offer all fresh ingredients, including handmade burger patties, Tony Mistry said, explaining many Victoria burger restaurants have frozen patties.
"Our motto is FNF," Tony Mistry said. "Fresh, never frozen."
Beer will also join the mix, but the company is in the process of obtaining a permit from the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission.
Burger Nation will employ about 10 people. Applications will soon be available on-site.
Management plans to have an online presence, Tony Mistry said, explaining a Facebook page will offer special offers to those who "like" the business.
The eatery might look like a quick-serve restaurant, but it offers a more casual dining experience, said Jesse Rojas, who will manage the restaurant.
He said he hopes to see Crossroads residents embrace the eatery's fresh ingredients, and note the differences between them and the larger chain restaurants.
"We're going to be a billion times better than 'a billion served,'" he said.
