MOOYAH Burgers to Pitch Neighborhood Group on Jackson Square Restaurant

A Texas-based burger and shake chain will make its case to the neighborhood next week to open an outpost of its fast-casual concept in Jackson Square. MOOYAH Bugers, Fries & Shakes seeks to open at 225 Centre St. That's the large building right next to the Jackson Square T where it meets Columbus Avenue. The company, headquartered in Dallas, had originally planned to open its JP restaurant in April or May. MOOYAH representatives are scheduled to appear at the Tuesday, June 6 meeting of the JP Neighborhood Council's Public Service Committee.


MOOYAH Burgers, Fries & Shakes Coming to Jackson Square

A new burger-and-fries place is coming to JP this spring, as Texas-based MOOYAH will be opening its first Boston restaurant in Jackson Square. "We are fresh, never-frozen burgers, grilled or fried chicken salads, sweet potato fries, hand-cut French fries, milkshakes, turkey burgers, lean green options and more," said Jay Hummer, Development Agent for MOOYAH Burgers, Fries & Shakes. The new restaurant will open at the corner of Columbus Avenue and Centre Street in Jackson Square near the MBTA station. Hummer said he hoped to open the restaurant in April or May. MOOYAH has about 100 restaurants throughout the country and is expanding in New England, Hummer told Jamaica Plain News. There are three restaurants in Connecticut, one currently open in Northborough, Mass., and two more to come in Berlin and Billerica, according to the company's website.
