Dat Dam Burga is coming to 755 Lawrenceville-Suwanee Rd. in Lawrenceville, according to a permit filed in Gwinnett County. The restaurant will be about 1,200 square feet.

Founder Edmund Hall confirmed the upcoming location in a phone call. 

“Dat Dam Burger was founded in Atlanta,” he said. “It’s made off a down-home, Dirty South-style handmade burger recipe of my own.”

Hall said he created the business in late 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic and has been operating out of a ghost kitchen, mainly doing pop-up catering events across metro Atlanta. 

He said he uses all fresh meats, including beef, lamb, turkey, chicken and bison. He also has a vegan burger that “people say is the best vegan burger they have ever had in their life,” he said. 

Hall said the concept has a ’70s and ‘80s vibe, reflecting a time period when “Atlanta was super cool, so all the burgers are themed with cool names like Da Brickhouse, Da Jive Turkey, Da Dirty Bird.”

He also has one called the Maynard Jackson, a vegan option with fried jackfruit. 

“You can get your burger with every dam thing on it,” he said, which according to an online menu, is with lettuce, tomato, onions and pickles. 

Other options include “Gone 2 Da Club,” which is with bacon. “Sleezy” is with cheese, and “Hatched” is with an egg, among other options. 

Hall hopes to open Dat Dam Burga in time for the Christmas holidays. He also looking at opening other concepts, such as a burger hibachi.
