Bang Bang Burgers updates outdoor space in Tremont | Company

CHARLOTTE — Bang Bang Burgers is preparing to upgrade the patio space at the South End location.

The outdoor space – about 40 x 15 – will have a permanent roof added, lighting installed and possibly the addition of a TV, owner Joe Huang said. Construction is expected to begin later this month.

Huang said the outdoor patio was on his to-do list at the restaurant, which was outfitted with canvas umbrellas and basic furniture. When neighbor Para upgraded his patio during the pandemic, he saw how positively diners responded.

“Adding a permanent roof over the outdoor space will expand our dining area, and we plan to make the space usable and comfortable as much as possible year-round,” he said. “We will definitely experiment with radiators and other ideas.”

While the capacity isn’t expected to change — the patio can accommodate about 28 people — the type of seating will improve, Huang said, as he adds banquettes and brings in new chairs and bar stools. “The new layout should be comfortable enough for people to sit down and stay for a while.”

Bang Bang Burgers, 235 W Tremont Ave., Suite 101, opened in 2018 and has been featured in the Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.”

It serves homemade burgers, sandwiches, salads and hand-cut fries. The brioche-style buns are handmade locally by Duke’s Bread, and the sauces are homemade and served on the side to honor the flavor of the burger.

The menu features rotating specials as well as entrees such as the SrirachaBurger with pepper jack cheese, sliced ​​jalapeños, fried onion strings, and green sriracha; the K-Pop Burger with kimchi, mesclun, smoked pork belly and gochujang mayonnaise; and the Pimento Burger with pimento cheese, fried pickles and ranch.

The weather at this time of year is perfect for this renovation project, Huang said.

“The entire patio will be covered so that people sitting outside will have complete shade on the hottest days of the year,” he says. “We will have ceiling fans that will run in the summer and turn on at night.”
