Hoping to bring the delicious simplicity of burger and fries to Colorado, Kyle and Bryan Messmer opened the very first MOOYAH Burgers, Fries & Shakes in the Rocky Mountain state. Opened on Sept. 2, the Westminster fast-casual dining restaurant is already satisfying burger lovers in the metro area.
“Our first day was phenomenal. We had more people than expected and it’s been steady ever since,” Bryan said. “We just hope to continue to get our staff trained so they can provide the best service and continue to serve up great burgers.”
MOOYAH was founded in 2007. Currently there are locations in Texas, where the franchise began, Alabama, Arkansas, California, Connecticut, Kansas, Montana, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Virginia, and now Colorado. Scott Adams, Colorado area developer for MOOYAH Burgers, said the concept of the fast-casual restaurant is to provide made-to-order burgers with fresh ingredients paired with hand-cut French Fries and hand crafted ice cream shakes. He said the menu is simple, but it works successfully.
“We do burgers, fries and shakes, we don’t do salads. We have a very simplified menu, but we do it well,” he said. “We are very family-centric as well and we felt like this concept was missing in the Colorado market.”
MOOYAH Burgers does offer a turkey burger and a veggie burger. Whatever the choice, all burgers are served on buns baked in house.
“It’s not often that a burger place bakes their own buns,” Bryan said. “MOOYAH Burgers is just a great place for people to come in and get a custom-made burger just the way they like it.”
MOOYAH Burgers is in the Orchard Town Center at 14697 Delaware St. #875. Hours are 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week.
