The "Help Wanted" sign has been removed from the window, speakers installed outside, and today, the menu was hung over the register. Barring any more delays with the build-out, Z-Burger is now scheduled to open next week. An exact date still can't be pinned down, but I hope to get more information (and interior photos) in a couple of days. The hours of operation on the restaurant will be:
Sunday - Thursday: 10am - 10pm
Friday - Saturday: 10am - 12am
Although the color scheme may resemble a certain global burger chain, Z-Burger is no golden arches. According to Z-Burger's website:
Z-Burger offers you food made fresh daily from ingredients of the highest quality. Our burgers are hand-formed...our potatoes are fresh cut...always fresh, never frozen.
Z-Burger serves burgers (veggie and turkey ones too), hot dogs, cheesesteaks, fries, onion rings, and 75 flavors of shakes & malts. You can find their full menu here.
General contractor Hamel Builders is on site at what will become Waterside Metro Lofts - the former EPA office buildings that are the last vestiges of the old Waterside Mall complex. Once renovations are complete in late 2013, there will be more than 500 residential units at Waterfront Station, with more housing planned at the northeast parcel (and potentially the northwest parcel). Representatives from Urban Atlantic are supposed to be at February's ANC 6D meeting to discuss their plans for the buildings.
