It took longer than anticipated, but Basic Burger has officially arrived in Tysons.
“We had hoped to be open months ago but what should have been a 6 week build out of an existing space took a little over 6 months because of permit delays,” Operations Director Jamie Mansy said by email. “Thankfully we are open now and have been very warmly received by the community.”
Taking B.Good’s place at 1495 Cornerside Blvd., Basic Burger’s Tysons venue is open from 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Monday through Friday, and 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. It has seating for 42 patrons inside and 16 outside.
In addition to burgers, the menu features hot dogs, fried chicken and fish sandwiches, salads, and “moo” shakes. The sides include “Loaded Moo Fries” — shoestring fries with chipotle ranch, bacon, shaved Parmesan cheese, and chopped scallions, topped with a fried egg.
This is Basic Burger’s first expansion since it launched in 2016. The company had two new locations in the works before COVID-19 hit but put its plans on hold during the first year of the pandemic, according to Mansy.
As part of its introduction to the Tysons community, Basic Burger has partnered with several local schools for a “Basic Giving Month.” During the first month of business, the partner schools will get all sales proceeds on a specific day, starting next week with Lemon Road Elementary School in Pimmit Hills.
“We have been fortunate to be named to several local, regional and national best burger lists,” Mansy said. “We hope to continue that tradition at Tysons West.”
