Mooyah Burgers, Fries & Shakes, a fast casual, “better burger” chain, is set to continue satisfying the taste buds of burger enthusiasts in Boston. The restaurant, opening on December 21 will be located at 140 Tremont Street.
The new Boston Common Mooyah opening caps off a huge year for the Dallas-based brand in Boston and the rest of Massachusetts, joining recent openings in Jamaica Plain, Billerica, and Berlin. Development Agent Jay Hummer, who has helped spearhead the brand’s growth in Boston, believes that a prime location like the Boston Common will only help take Mooyah to the next level in terms of recognition in the city.
“We just opened our seventh location in New England in Berlin, so we are excited to bring this one to the ‘hub of the universe,’” says Hummer. “We like the fact that we have an opportunity to be so close to the heart of the business district and the Boston Common.”
December 21 will mark the soft opening for the new restaurant, with plans for a bigger grand opening celebration in the following weeks to celebrate with the Boston community. With the new location’s close proximity to so many important Boston institutions, Hummer expects things to get busy right away.
“We are nearby some great universities like Suffolk and Emerson not to mention the business of the Common,” said Hummer. “This is about bringing the MOOYAH brand to the center stage of Boston and the whole New England region.”
With the book closing on a busy 2017 in both Boston and throughout the state of Massachusetts, the Mooyah team is already looking ahead to an even busier 2018 in terms of the brand’s growth plans throughout the region.
“Boston has already been a huge success for us this year,” says Michael Mabry, president and chief operating officer of Mooyah. “Now with the newest opening in Boston Common, we are ready to make even Mooyah lovers in Boston and beyond.”
At Mooyah, guests have the advantage of choosing from a variety of bun options, such as baked-in-house artisan white or multigrain wheat non-GMO buns and hand-crafted lettuce buns called Iceburgers to accompany the never-frozen 100 percent Certified Angus Beef brand burgers, all natural Jennie-O turkey, all natural grilled and hand-breaded chicken, and mouthwatering MorningStar Farms black bean veggie burgers.

Mooyah’s hand-cut fries come together in a six-step process that takes a total of 24 hours to completely prepare.
