The votes have been tallied and the families have spoken: for the second year in a row, MOOYAH Burgers, Fries & Shakes (MOOYAH), a fast-casual, “better burger” fries and shakes concept, has been voted “Best Burger” by the readers of DallasChild and NorthTexasChild magazines. MOOYAH’s superlative will be featured in the annual Best for Families issue of the magazines when they hit newsstands on Nov. 25, 2013.
With 24 restaurants in the Dallas- Forth Worth DMA, families can easily find a neighboring restaurant to sample what these publications are calling one of the best burger options for families in the region.
“We’re thrilled and honored to be named the best burger for Dallas families,” said Natalie Anderson, Senior Brand Manager for MOOYAH. “The MOOYAH experience is all about pleasing our Guests with great food and excellent service, so consistently getting this type of recognition in our home state of Texas is really exciting for all of us at MOOYAH.”
MOOYAH was also named “Tastiest Local Burger” in the magazines’ Best for Families 2012 issue, and with a heavy focus on customization and family-friendly fare, it’s easy to see why. At MOOYAH, customization is king. MOOYAH has enough create-your-own menu options that cater to the whole family. For kids, MOOYAH can whip up their classic never frozen 100 percent American beef patty in a junior size. For picky eaters, the chicken strips and the grilled cheese on homemade bread are both sure to please.
However, MOOYAH is not just a great lunch or dinner option for the kids — their menu will also satisfy parents. Health-minded moms and dads can substitute beef for a Jennie-O turkey patty or a mouthwatering veggie burger, or choose to forgo the freshly baked bun and instead opt for the iceburger using lettuce wrap to get an under-600 calorie meal. No matter the order, each gourmet burger creation comes with a selection of unlimited veggies and a choice of nine delicious sauces.
The brand’s French fries come together in a six-step process that takes a total of 24 hours to completely prepare. A delightful combination of constant attention and a little magic help transform U.S. #1 Idaho potatoes into perfect, crisp-on-the-outside and fluffy-on-the-inside fries. Never one to forget dessert, MOOYAH also offers handcrafted shakes, allowing Guests to choose from classic flavors like vanilla and chocolate, or opt to make their own creations with toppings such as cookie dough, peanut butter cups and more.
“We’re proud to have raised the bar set by typical fast-food burger joints by continuing to push ourselves forward into new ‘better burger’ territory with more options for more people,” Anderson said. “With that being said, we also strive to stay true to our foundation: providing burgers, fries and shakes the way our Guests want them. We hope to continue being the Dallas-Fort Worth’s go-to restaurant for these staples.”
Seeing incredible growth in 2012 alone, MOOYAH has continued its expansion, already awarding an additional 46 units nationally and internationally in the first three quarters of 2013, with plans to provide 400 jobs to local communities by year-end. The brand shows no signs of slowing down and aims to deliver a simple American classic that’s not only made well, but also produced in a friendly and comfortable environment to fresh markets in the future. MOOYAH is continuing to develop new restaurants in Texas in addition to its national expansion plans.
