Big Buns Damn Good Burgers has arrived in McLean.
The regional burger chain opened its newest location at 1336 Chain Bridge Road on Jan. 16, a spokesperson told FFXnow.
“We are so thrilled to bring Big Buns [Damn] Good Burgers to the discerning diners of McLean! This is our 8th location in Virginia, and with McLean’s diverse professional community it’s a perfect fit for our next Big Buns,” said Warren Thompson, president and founder of Thompson Hospitality, which owns the brand.
Also behind the recently opened Milk & Honey Cafe in Fairfax, the restaurant group confirmed in September 2021 that it had subleased space for Big Buns and a Matchbox Pizza from Lidl, which launched its McLean store on June 1.
Combined, the two restaurants occupy 6,200 square feet of space. Initially, they were both expected to be finished in the second quarter of 2022, but durng the pandemic, supply-chain and permitting delays have slowed down retail build-outs across Fairfax County.
Matchbox is currently scheduled for a Feb. 6 opening, but Thompson noted that the date is “subject to change.”
Started by Craig Carey and chef Tom Racosky in 2007, Big Buns opened its first restaurant in Ballston that June and has now expanded to a total of nine locations, including one in Florida. The Fairfax County sites have all arrived within the past two years, starting with Reston and followed by Vienna and Herndon. There is also one in Fairfax City.
In addition to a variety of burgers, the menu features chicken sandwiches, vegetarian bowls, fries, milkshakes and alcoholic drinks, including craft beer and cocktails.
