Fatburger is now open in Temecula, CA

In 1952, Lovie Yancey created the biggest, juiciest hamburger around. Fatburger, born so long ago, has been making customers happy for over 60 years. At Fatburger, Fat equals Big. They have a wide range of sizes from the Small which is 2.5 ounces to the XXXL which is 1.5 pounds of fresh ground beef. They even have a picture wall as diners try to conquer this behemoth.

Ray Malik was born to be a restaurateur. He had a family-owned gourmet NY-style pizza chain of stores, before seeing the potential in Fatburger. He took over the franchise in Riverside and turned it into a bustling location. Even before the equipment was in, he hired and trained his Temecula crew in Riverside so they would hit the ground running. On December 12, 2012, Fatburger in Temecula began its soft-opening mode. Like any venture, you always need to work out kinks. Just like when Disneyland first opened on July 17, 1955, nothing is ever perfect. The Temecula location is actually retro-fitted to the space so the flow is a little different, but Ray has this location running like a well-oiled machine for only being open for a month. The crew is really friendly and yells out, “Welcome to Fatburger” as everyone walks through the door, not just the cashier, everyone behind the counter. As I dined and watched for a good hour, it was just amazing. As the lunch crowd came in and the line started getting longer, one of the crew started taking burger and fry orders and yelled it back to the fry cook, which means a shorter time for your fresh, made-to-order food.
