In my last post about River Park restaurants, burgers were on everybody’s minds. There was much excitement about Five Guys Burgers & Fries taking over Johnny Rockets’ old spot. And we speculated about competition between Habit, the upcoming Eureka!Burger, In-N-Out and Five Guys.
Bee reporter Bethany Clough wondered “if the burger places even consider other burger places competition.”
The answer arrived today, in the form of a press release announcing the August 9 opening of Eureka:
“There are a lot of restaurants out there serving burgers, but we take it a few steps further by creating an atmosphere and menu that make guests of all ages want to stay, hang out and visit multiple times per week,” said Paul Frederick, managing partner of Eureka!Burger. “Eureka!Burger separates itself from The Habits and Five Guys Burger & Fries of the world by offering 11 gourmet burger selections, six terrific ‘meal salads’, nine flat screens for sports entertainment, a full bar featuring artisan beers and liquors together with great music. Although food is our number one passion, our restaurant is designed for far more than just a food experience.”
Kinda interesting that they directly addressed their competitors, no? Like I said, let the burger wars begin.
