As previously reported, Your Mom's Burger Bar is expanding with the soft opening of its new location in Oak Hill on Friday, Sept. 6, from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. The mom and pop burger joint also just released its new burger bar menu on Facebook.
Eater spoke with Gina Blackmore (the mom of "Your Mom's"), who is relieved that the opening is finally here, after "two months straight" of renovating the space daily alongside her entire family, including husband Ryan Blackmore, their three kids (18 months, six and 13 years old) and even her own mom.
"It's literally been blood, sweat and tears for Ryan and myself," said Gina. "We did 90 percent of the work ourselves with some of our friends lending a hand when they could."
The must try on the new menu? Mom's Fried Potato Salad Balls. After rolling baseball-sized globs of traditional yellow potato salad in panko breadcrumbs, they deep fry them and smother them in the new Smokey Robinson sauce.
Gina's personal favorite on the menu is their classic Chi Cheng Burger, which she named after her friend, former bass player for the Deftones who passed away this past April. [EATERWIRE]
