Fatburger, which was founded in Los Angeles, California, in 1947, has opened a restaurant in nearby Manassas, VA at 8097 Sudley Rd. The restaurant opened earlier this month and is the first Fatburger location in the DC area.

While FatBurger is a fast food restaurant, the food is cooked and made to order. It was originally named “Mr. Fatburger” until the “Mr.” was removed in 1952. Some Fatburger restaurants have liquor licenses as well as “Fat Bars”. Its franchise headquarters are in Beverly Hills, California. In addition to the United States, the chain operates in 19 other countries, and there are east coast locations in Virginia, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.

The Fatburger menu is centered primarily on hamburgers, offering various sizes and numbers of patties, along with add-ons such as cheese, bacon and eggs. the Manassas location includes Buffalo’s Express, which also has a variety of wings on the menu.

Per the restaurant website: “Fatburger & Buffalo’s Express located at 8097 Sudley Rd, Manassas, VA is a casual eatery offering fresh, authentic, tasty hamburgers, fries, and shakes. Every meal is cooked-to-order, using the freshest ingredients and traditional cooking methods. We’re best known for our fresh-never-frozen, lean-beef, chicken, turkey and veggie burgers & sandwiches, our hand-scooped, real ice cream milkshakes, homemade-from-scratch onion rings and build-your-own-burger experience.“

Back in 2008, Orlando Brown, a former Ravens offensive tackle, opened the first Fatburger franchise within the D.C.-Baltimore corridor in Columbia, MD.

Sadly it closed in 2016 or so – but it was the first outlet in the area and was a welcome oasis for this West Coast transplant.

I am glad Manassas is getting in on the game. But it certainly is not the 1st attempt.

Columbia is Baltimore area would not call it D.C. area and many other news outlets are calling this the first in the D.C. area so it’s close but no cigar. Looking forward to Manassas!
