Flat Top Burger Shop Nears Open on Manor Road

  • 1

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.
