New Restaurant Set to Open in Former Newburgh Burger King
The town of Newburgh has seen some growth over the past few years with new retail spaces and restaurants popping up across its landscape. In the four years I've lived here since my family and I moved from the north side of Evansville, the town has seen the construction of a Popeye's, McCallister's Deli, Dunkin', and Teriyaki Madness, the latter of which is the newest addition taking space a couple of doors down from Wings Etc. behind Walmart. Even Burger King relocated from Hayley Drive just east of the Highway 66 and 261 intersection where it had been for years, to a new, more modern building on High Pointe Drive that can easily be seen at the intersection of Highway 66 and Frame Road. Since that move, its former location has sat vacant. That won't be the case much longer.
The Rooster's Den to Open in Former Newburgh Burger King Location
As first reported by Evansville 411 News on Facebook, a new, locally-owned restaurant called, "The Rooster's Den" is currently finishing up renovations of the location and while no official date has been announced, plans to open later this summer.
What Will The Rooster's Den Serve?
That seems to be the question of the hour. As of this writing, all the owners have posted on the restaurant's Facebook page is that they will offer "some good home cooking and some fun, signature items" for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. With that said, their post on Saturday, June 11th did say they were finalizing the menu and will share it as soon as it's finished.
The Rooster's Den is Hiring
In addition to finalizing the menu and putting the finishing touches on the interior and exterior of the building, the new restaurant is looking for employees. They're currently hiring full and part-time for all positions, "particularly for the kitchen and servers." If you or someone you know is interested, The Rooster's Den is currently accepting applications through its Facebook page.
