FAT Brands, parent company of Fatburger, Buffalo’s Express, and six other restaurant concepts, announced the opening of a co-branded Fatburger and Buffalo’s Express in Fairbanks, AK. The grand opening of the restaurant, the first to open in Alaska, will be today, Monday, June 29, 2020.
“Summer in the great north, when the days are longer and the sun hardly ever sets, is the perfect time to introduce the Fairbanks community to our delicious, freshly made burgers and spicy and flavorful chicken wings,” says Andy Wiederhorn, CEO of FAT Brands. “Our new co-branded Fatburger and Buffalo’s Express is our first Alaskan restaurant, but we’re sure it will be a local favorite in no time.”
Ever since the first Fatburger opened in Hollywood more than 70 years ago, the chain has been known for its delicious, grilled-to-perfection and cooked to order burgers. Founder Lovie Yancey believed that a big burger with everything on it is a meal in itself. And at Fatburger “everything” is not just the usual lettuce, tomato, onion, mayo, mustard, pickles and relish. Burgers can be customized with everything from bacon and eggs to chili, jalapenos and onion rings. In addition to its famous burgers, the Fatburger menu also includes Fat and Skinny fries, sweet potato fries, scratch-made onion rings, IMPOSSIBLE burgers, turkeyburgers, chicken sandwiches, and hand scooped milkshakes made from 100% real ice cream.
From the Buffalo’s Express menu, patrons can choose bone-in or boneless wings accompanied by a range of sauces including Scorchin, Carolina Fire BBQ, Asian Sesame, Coconut Jerk, Honey Garlic, and Sweet Bourbon BBQ. All of Buffalo’s Express menu wings are accompanied by celery, carrots and blue cheese, ranch or honey mustard dressing.
