Back Yard Burgers is now open in Harrisburg, North Carolina. The 2,200-square- foot Harris Square Drive location is the second Back Yard Burgers to open in the Charlotte metro area in the past year.

“Just in time for summer, we are excited to introduce Back Yard Burgers to the Harrisburg community. In addition to sharing good food with good people, collaborating with local partners is important to us and something that we’re looking forward to now that our doors are open,” says Dennis Pfaff, CEO of Back Yard Burgers. “We have loved being a part of the Carolinas and hope to continue growing in this market as we share the story of our back yard.”

Founded in 1987 in Cleveland, Mississippi, the backyard-cookout-inspired concept takes just as much pride in consistently delicious burgers as treating each guest with genuine kindness and respect. The team aims to go beyond the traditional dining experience, conveying the love they have for their work every day.
