The Burger Shop Wake Forest North Carolina

The Burger Shop (Facebook)If you’ve ever visited Wake Forest you know that there are plenty of restaurants to choose from when you need to fill your stomach. But there are not really any good places that specialize in burgers. Citizens around the Wake Forest area have been waiting for a local, non chain, restaurant to open that specializes in burgers. Shorty’s has been in wake forest for decades but their specialty is hot dogs. On July eighth however, a new restaurant opened that specializes in handmade classic burgers. The restaurant is simply called the burger shop. It is located in downtown Wake Forest on Wait Ave. next to Virgilio’s. This restaurant is going to be a great addition to the town being that there are no local burger joints in Wake Forest. The Burger Shop will also offer milkshakes. This restaurant will be very popular with high school students who will stop in during their lunch break once school gets back in.

The Burger Shop’s first day in business ended earlier than expected due to a shortage of food. The restaurant was scheduled to close at eight pm but was closed down around five because they ran out of food.
During my visit the line was very long. I waited a good thirty minutes before I had a chance to order. I ordered a double cheeseburger with fries and a drink. The price wasn’t too outrageous I only paid about seven dollars for the meal. The first thing I noticed about the restaurant is that it is obviously a family business.  The family worked the entire operation. When I got my food it was exactly what is advertised; a classic burger. Nothing fancy here. Just a good old american burger with a side of fries. The fries did not impress me too much but they did the job.
If you are looking for a relatively cheap burger place in wake forest that is not too expensive, this is your place.
The Hours of The Burger Shop can be tricky. They have a two hour period in the middle of every day they are closed from three pm to five pm. This is because they need to restock all of their food. They are also closed on Sundays and Mondays for the entire day.
 If you can catch them when they aren’t busy, I’m sure you will be satisfied with the dining experience.
