Mooyah open in Hot Springs, coming soon to LR

Posted By on Fri, Apr 20, 2012 at 9:34 AM

We're big fans of the recent Central Arkansas influx of pick-your-toppings burger joints like Five Guys, Big Orange and David's Burgers. Given that, we're understandably stoked to hear that a new contender for the Big Burger crown is now open in Hot Springs. Their webpage says an outlet is coming soon to Little Rock.

Mooyah burgers is a Texas-based chain with locations in five states. As seen on Mooyah's menu, burger lovers can choose from white or wheat bun, beef/turkey/veggie patty, a raft of fresh toppings and regular or sweet potato fries.

Their Hot Springs outlet is at 3954 Central Ave., Suite G in the Dogwood Landing Shopping Center — open 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. 7 days a week. Phone: (501)520-5001. We'll give you a full update on whether Mooyah delivers the boo-yah once we get a chance to make the jaunt to Hot Springs.

UPDATE: We just got off the phone with Scott Strzelecki, the franchise agent who is developing the Mooyah outlets in Arkansas.

Strzelecki said the plan is to open up Mooyah franchises all over Arkansas. While the concept is similar to Five Guys Burgers, Strzelecki said, it's a more family-friendly experience, with the Little Rock location featuring a wall which kids are encouraged to write on. Each outlet bakes their own buns in house, with diners ordering by selecting their toppings from a paper "menu tree."

Strzelecki said the Little Rock store, to be located in a former Blue Coast Burrito location at 14810 Cantrell, is in the process of being readied, and should be open sometime in late May or early June.
