Burger University has announced their permanent closure. The burger restraunt, which has won Best of Georgetown Gold Best Burger every year since opening in 2012, has been a staple on the Georgetown Square.
Owner Carmen May was a long time supporter of many community programs and events. The Georgetown Eagles hosted their “Eagle Nation Coaches Show” on SHN Sports the past two years during football season. The establishment frequently offered discounts to first responders and others.
Burger University was also known for its 5 Pound Burger Challenge for an opportunity to be named on the “Dean’s List”. To make the Dean’s List you must complete in 60 minutes or less a true 5 pound food challenge that consists of (5) 2/3 lb burgers and a side of fries that are added until the scale reads 5 lbs. Only a 16 ever accomplished the feat. Those who did not complete the challenge were known as “Drop Outs”.
The following message was posted on their Facebook page Friday evening:
On behalf of Burger University, we want to thank everyone who enjoyed the product we created. This restaurant was born out of necessity in 2012 and today we announce our permanent closing.
The historic Lockett building, of which we have been owners/caretakers since 2007, is being sold and a new concept will soon fill its hallowed halls.
For those of you who helped us achieve the gold medal ribbon for best hamburger in the “Best of Georgetown” contest every year since we have been open, we wish you our humble thank you. So from our entire family (Rob, Carmen , Carly, Sydney & Mackenzie May ), it has been a joy to serve each of you.
