BRGR:Shack coming to Ballston.

Saw this place last night. Can't find a website. Anyone know anything?

  1. Weird. There's a two outpost biz in NYC wth a similar name, but the font is different and they're not mentioning any move to DC.

        Not unless they're changing their logo. Look at the first link in my earlier post.

      2. Nope. It is plastered all over just like: BRGR:Shack. I don't think it is the same as BGR The Burger Joint, it seems clearly different.

          Those two names are too darned close.

          1. re: Mister Big

            What is missing from the two links I posted before and knowledge about BGR? Look at the pictures and conclude, easily, that there are THREE operations with a similar name (and in my searching which apparently hasn't helped anyone there are even more).

            1. re: Dennis S

              OK, we get you. It's not BGR and it's probably not the place in New York. It's mysterious, someone apparently jumping on the premium burger explosion that's hit town like sushi. Where's this new place so we can watch the window and gossip about updates (or complain that there are none)?

                It is a couple doors down from 7-11 across the street from the Ballston metro station. It used to be the Eat n Run Deli.

                  I live right around the block. I'll keep a lookout.

        2. hmmm, copyright issues much?

          The Greek (lamb w/tzatiki) burger at BGR Spout Run is amazing! Asian Tuna, not so much.


            Coming soon...not open yet, no details on website yet.
