Aggies Get Grubbin'

By Hayley Cox on May 3, 2012


Aggies may or may not have noticed yet another new restaurant opening up at 980 University Drive. You know the spot. Yes, the one next to Pei Wei that never seems to keep a restaurant open for more than two months. This location is notorious for unsuccessful restaurants; from Baja Taco, to a sports bar called Knockouts, nothing seems to last. But the newest entry to the taboo location, Grub Burger, has called for high hopes in the Aggies’ opinions.

Grub, an upscale burger joint created by Jimmy Loup and Tom Kenney, may just have what it takes to last. Grub offers “exactly what it stands for;” G – good people, R – real food, U – a unique vibe, and B – big flavors, with just enough of a twist to impress. From their signature burgers such as the simple “Front Porch” to the vegetarian “Hippie Chic” and the chili-filled “OMG”, there is something for everyone. Also, each week the chef offers a special market burger; this week’s may just include a heaping scoop of mac n’ cheese and bacon if you’re daring enough to try it. And, if you weren’t sold on the unique menu options, hand-made Mexican vanilla milkshakes might do the trick. Twinkie, Nutella, and Salted Caramel are just a few options on the list. Better yet, spiked milkshakes anyone?

Grub has an inviting atmosphere with great service, especially for such a recent opening. While dining in, it seems that no costumer will miss out on a conversation with Jimmy Loup, and he would love to tell you about Grub’s history and famous chef Christopher Kearse of Christopher’s World Grille in Bryan, Texas. Grub Burger defies the odds of it’s usually not-so-successful location. If you don’t believe me, ask other Aggies around town. Or, go ahead and try it for yourself!
