A teriyaki joint closes and Friesenburgers rises.

Friesenburgers is the name of the cafe that’s opening in the location of the former Yung’s Teriyaki in Tacoma’s Dome District.

Friesenburgers plans to serve breakfast, buffalo burgers and deep-fried hot dogs. Dec. 10 is the targeted opening date.

As for the operators of Yung’s Teriykai, a sign on Friesenburgers’ door says:

Kenny went into computers. Sue retired. The family is doing good.

As for those deep-fried hot dogs: I’m told they’ll be battered, puffy and served with chili.

Friesenburgers: 308 E. 26th St., Tacoma. Target opening date: Dec. 10.
