Come summer, there will be a couple more places to get a burger downtown.
Burger Theory is projected to open in early June inside the Auburn Holiday Inn, Sales & Banquet Coordinator Brandi Miller said Friday. As its name suggests, the restaurant will serve burgers along with appetizers and salads for lunch and dinner, as well as 24 bottles and 12 taps of beer. Miller said the hotel will try to feature local beers in the restaurant.
Burger Theory will replace McMurphy’s Authentic Irish Pub, which some of the hotel’s regulars are sad to see go, Miller said.
The pub’s warm wooden decor will be replaced by a modern look with several TVs in Burger Theory, Miller said. The hotel has few other details about the restaurant because it’s being handled by InterContinental Hotels Group, which owns the Holiday Inn and other hotel chains. Burger Theory is part of the group’s new H4 design for full-service Holiday Inns, Miller said.
