Tasty Burger to Open a Takeout-Only Location in Southie
Yesterday, the blog Caught in Southie shared the rumor that Tasty Burger may be opening a quick-service outpost in South Boston—something we can confirm after speaking with owner David DuBois last night. “We are trying to do that old fashioned burger stand,” DuBois says of the new takeout window-only spot, which will be located at 69 L Street. This means a curtailed menu (most of the burgers and dogs are available, plus fries and milkshakes; no booze) plus one major addition: house froyo (including dipped cones!!), a nod to space’s predecessor, ice cream stand The Boathouse. “We do think it’s a cool thing to have that kind of walk up window, it’s kind of fun and retro,” DuBois says. “That space is such an iconic part of that neighborhood.”
While it won’t be open in time for the long Memorial Day weekend, DuBois says he expects the stand—for those keeping count, the third outpost of the growing Tasty empire— to open within the next couple of months, which means soon enough, you can augment your Southie tan with a spicy jalapeno burger and a dipped cone.
