Are San Diegans ready to embrace another out-of-town burger brand? The Pacific Northwest’s Little Big Burger continues its expansion here with tomorrow’s scheduled launch of a new location in Mission Valley. It joins an outlet in El Cajon’s Parkway Plaza, which grand opened last month.
Open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily, in the Park Valley shopping center on Camino De La Reina, Little Big Burger was founded in 2010 by acclaimed Portland restaurateurs. The fast-casual eatery serves a streamlined menu of cooked-to-order hamburgers, cheeseburgers, and veggie burgers plus truffle fries and root beer floats. Local beer will be added in the future. Mike Pruitt, chairman and CEO of Chanticleer Holdings, the company’s current owner, operator, and franchisor, tells Eater that several other leases are in the works with another six locations planned for the San Diego area.
