I've been asked about the status of Burly's Burgers Fries & Shakes, which closed after a kitchen fire a few weeks back.
I stopped by the restaurant today as work was being done. The owner was out, but I was told that Burly's should reopen in about a week. I'll keep you posted.
I spied with my little eye another burger joint near the U of M at 786 Echles called Stuffy's. It opened August 9th.
The specialty at Stuffy's, as the name suggests, is the cheese-stuffed burger. A small starts at $3.99.
Best Memphis Burger has already been by to check it out and came away impressed.
Finally, it was basically concluded that I had hallucinated this sign for Petra Cafe, set to open late October in the Exline's space next to old Blockbuster.
Don't get me wrong. I am thrilled that Petra is opening in Midtown, but I really hope my hallucinations involve talking animals.
