A cult California burger restaurant is now open in Arlington, and it’s offering free burgers Thursday to celebrate.
Fatburger, which calls itself “the last big burger stand,” recently opened its 100th store in Arlington.
On Thursday, the restaurant will host a grand opening and ribbon cutting at 1807 N. Collins St., and the first 100 patrons will receive a free Original Fatburger.
Born in Los Angeles in 1952, Fatburger has built a reputation over the years for their oversized burgers and late hours.
Fatburger offers burgers ranging from single to XXXL – three half-pound fresh beef patties topped with lettuce, tomato, mustard, relish, diced onions, pickles, mayo and cheddar cheese. Burgers can also be personalized with fried eggs, bacon, chili, or onion rings.
Founder Lovie Yancey said she named the chain Fatburger because of the circumference of the burger.
Fatburger’s menu also includes French fries, sweet potato fries, onion rings, impossible burgers, turkey burgers, crispy chicken sandwiches and milkshakes made with real ice cream.
The Arlington restaurant is co-branded with Buffalo’s Express, a chain specializing in wings.
This is the third location in North Texas for Fatburger, which also has restaurants in Allen and North Richland Hills.
Fatburger, 1807 N. Collins St., is open 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to midnight Friday and Saturday.
