Flat Top Burger Shop Nears Open on Manor Road

The old filling station diagonal from El Chile is nearing opening on Manor Road.

I'd heard it was going to be called Curve-Inn or something but I reckon they've changed the name.

I'm curious about this restaurant as the corporation that mans Red House, El Chilito etc is behind the joint.

We could use a good hamburger stand in French Place a la Hopdoddy but with the dismal track record of said corporations food quality I'm a little worried.

  1. I would assume this place involves a flat top griddle for the burgers? For some reason I envision the place serving thin greasy burgers ala dirty martins. If done right, it can be great. But I will wait to see if that happens.

    I don't mind Red House for the rare happy-hour with work folks, but the El Chil* places are not worth the money.
