Chef-prepared fare at second Mr. Juicy

With the opening of ANOTHER Mr. Juicy, chef Andrew Weissman hopes to duplicate a winning concept.

Debuting in August at 3315 San Pedro Ave. in a former Jack in the Box, this iteration is only about a half mile from the Olmos Park original, which Weissman doesn’t plan to shutter.

“I want to open 20 of these in the next five years.” Weissman said. “I’m going to put six to eight more in San Antonio, about 20 in the San Marcos/South Austin area, some in Dallas.”

Although well versed in fine dining, Weissman is no stranger to the hamburger, having developed Big’z Burger Joint in association with his sister, Lauren.

The new Mr. Juicy at the corner of West Hildebrand Avenue, across the street from the original Taco Cabana, has already exceeded expectations, with 3,000 patties gobbled up in a single weekend, Weissman said.

“We bake our own buns, we hand cut our fries and double blanch them. Everything is homemade, in-house,” he added.

The no-nonsense menu keeps it basic: hamburgers, cheeseburgers or double cheeseburgers with add-ons available, including bacon, mushrooms, fries and egg. Mr. Juicy also is home to the Wet Burger, which adds a specially crafted peppercorn sauce topping.

Shake lovers can choose chocolate, caramel, vanilla, peanut butter, strawberry or Nutella. Dessert options are Key lime pie or “House Famous Cookies.”

Hours are 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.
