Burger Girl on McKinney Avenue closed
Uptown was not profitable for burgers and girls, but the 'burbs are doing fine.
DALLAS The Burger Girl on McKinney Avenue closed on Thursday, a spokesperson for the small chain confirmed.
"It just wasn't as profitable as we had hoped," she said.
This was the original of what has become a small chain that combines a menu of burgers and female servers -- what one manager called "Twin Peaks but more Highland Park-friendly and a burger concept."
The chain is owned by Nick Galanos, a Twin Peaks franchiser who also owns the Lemon Bar in West Village, and its other branches are doing fine. The Frisco store that opened in 2010 is still profitable, and there are two more Burger Girls in Texas: in Houston and Katy.
A branch is set to open this month in Las Vegas, Nevada, and there's another being built in Arkansas.
