Houston Company The Burger Joint Expands With New Friendswood Restaurant

On Wednesday, December 1, The Burger Joint is opening its Friendswood location at 1350 West Bay Area Boulevard, just outside of Baybrook Mall. In addition, it’s marking the occasion by rolling out a new Breakfast Burger at all three of its locations, which includes the original at 2703 Montrose and the Heights location at 2002 North Shepherd. The hours are from 11 a.m. to midnight daily.
The sizable restaurant is over 10,000 square feet, including the dining room and patio, and boasts 309 seats. It’s also fair to say that it’s set up as an ideal hangout for watching sports and other televised events. There are nine TVs in the dining room and an additional 25 outside. Unlike the inside-the-Loop locations, where parking can be tricky, the Friendswood location has dozens available for guests thanks to the adjoining mall parking lot.

Along with creative versions of its namesake food item, The Burger Joint also serves chef Matt Pak’s shakes (including spiked ones for the grownups, such as the Not Your Father’s Root Beer “Float”), hot dogs and sides, such as Chili Queso Fries and mac and cheese. (Pak, who just moved to Friendswood, co-owns The Burger Joint with business partner Shawn Bermudez, who also owns Present Company bar in Montrose.) The new location also sports a full bar and cocktail program developed by beverage director Rex Nielsen.

“Our team is so excited to finally bring The Burger Joint to Friendswood! We can’t wait to feed the neighborhood and get to know the community,” said Pak via press release.

The company says that, to date, it’s sold over 2 million burgers at the Montrose and Heights locations combined. With the new Baybrook location, it will probably hit 3 million at a rapid pace now.
