After announcing plans to open its first-ever brick and mortar location in Houston, Flip’n Patties appears as if it’s almost ready to make its debut.
The restaurant posted photos of signage going up at its space at 1809 Eldridge Parkway on Thursday, hinting at a soft opening this week. When Eater first reported the possible expansion back in October, owners Don and Michael Jante were “hopeful” that the project would come to fruition. In the meantime, the duo kept slinging their ridiculously popular Filipino-influenced burgers as construction progressed.
It’s about time for some good news for Flip’n Patties. As Houston Food Finder reported earlier this month, the truck was recently robbed at gunpoint. The thieves made off with a “substantial” amount of cash, which inspired the creation of a GoFundMe account that set out to raise $25,000 toward the restaurant’s brick-and-mortar location. At present, that crowdfunding effort has raised a little over $3,000.
Flip’n Patties could quietly kick open the doors on Friday, December 22 if its cryptic Facebook posts are any indication. Eater has reached out to its owners for more details on the restaurant’s official arrival.
