First Johnny’s Burger Factory in nation opening at Galleria

Johnny Rockets has released details about its new Johnny’s Burger Factory concept restaurant, which will open at Walden Galleria on Wednesday.

The menu will feature several burgers, including a Sriracha Pub Cheeseburger and Spicy Jack Guac Cheeseburger. Burgers range in price from $8.99 to $10.99.

Johnny’s Burger Factory will also have chicken tenders, salads and chicken sandwiches. The drink menu will include craft beer, handmade milkshakes and a Coke Freestyle machine.

The interior’s industrial decor will feature reclaimed wood and corrugated metal siding, as well as a bamboo-faced dining counter.

There will be a video wall and a digital menu board designed to look like a hand-written chalkboard. Customers will customize and place their orders via a touch-screen kiosk. Employees will wear jeans, T-shirts and butcher aprons.

It’s the California-headquartered restaurant chain’s first Johnny’s Burger Factory in the country. It will be located on the second floor next to Pole Position Raceway.

Johnny Rockets opened a traditional Johnny Rockets in the mall in 1998, but it closed last year.

The restaurant will hold its grand opening Saturday, when it will donate 20 percent of the day’s proceeds to the Salvation Army of Greater Buffalo.
