GEORGE - Burgers far bigger than your fist will soon be sold off the side of I-90 next to George’s brand new hotel and coffee stand.

On Thursday, iFIBER ONE News spoke to Business Manager Brulee Hoskins who says new Fatburger/Buffalo’s Express is projected to open in the first week of September 2020.

Currently, a Fatburger food trailer with a very limited menu is serving meals, but the brick-and-mortar building will offer a vast menu that includes items such as: 1/3 lb. to 1.5 lb. burgers, fries, onion rings, chili cheese fries, hot dogs, chili hot dogs, vegan impossible burgers, turkey burgers, chicken sandwiches, milkshakes, vegan milkshakes, bone-in wings, bone-out wings, etc.

The Fatburger/Buffalo’s Express restaurant is situated next to the Microtel by Wyndam and Wicked Goat Brewing Coffee, both of which opened earlier this summer.

Hoskins says the ownership group of the roadside property chose to build a Fatburger because “it’s the best burger for the best price. A great option for a great burger.”

Hoskins says the restaurant will have a drive-thru, will offer room service delivery to the neighboring hotel, and it may do local delivery.

Hoskins added that the restaurant will create 15 new jobs.

"Fatburgers soon outshone their competition. Chains like "GristleBurgers" and "LittleWhiteBallsOfCartilageThatYouCan'tChewBurgers" lost much of their market share.

Ha ha. Now, if they served real buffalo meat, I'd eat there. I like my animal to be lean, not full of fat - that's gross.


This will be a nice addition, can't wait for it to open up. Haven't tried a fatburger before, but if it saves having to stop in Ellensburg for lunch I'm all for it.
