First, Sonic – now Burgerville. The burger scene in South Sound is about to get really meaty.
TNT business columnist Dan Voelpel reports today that Burgerville is the latest burger chain with a cult following (me included) to eye Tacoma for a location. No announcements yet on locations, but company officials said they are coming to the Tacoma-Olympia market this year.
Read it here in Voelpel’s column in today’s News Tribune.
If you’ve never made the 50-mile track to Centralia, where the closest Burgerville is located, you are missing out on burger joy. My menu favorites: sweet potato fries, seasonal shakes (ie: pumpkin and chocolate hazelnut) Tillamook cheeseburgers and Walla Walla Onion Cheeseburgers. It’s a chain that locally sources much of its ingredients and uses antibiotic and hormone free beef. Gotta like those details.
