Fatburger in Temecula will be celebrating its one-year anniversary by giving away burgers, t-shirts and drinks on Thursday, Dec. 12.
The Los Angeles landmark restaurant made its way to Temecula last year. Since 1952, Fatburger has been cooking to order fresh lean beef, not frozen patties.
The anniversary celebration for the Temecula location begins at 11 a.m. with giveaways and a radio station broadcasting from the store.
“The first 50 people who visit can get a free medium burger,” said owner Ray Nargi.
In addition, the first 100 guests can get a Fatburger t-shirt and everyone else will be able to get a free drink until 9 p.m. with a purchase.
The desire to use only the freshest ingredients to make quality food is what prompted Ray and Nargi Malik to bring Fatburger to Temecula.
“I like the service industry and I believe in the brand which is about premium quality food at a lesser price,” said Ray.
Not only are the burgers made to order, but also the onion rings are made from real onions. Guests can order hand-scooped, real ice cream shakes or sit down to a warm bowl of tasty chili. The fries are cooked in 100 percent cholesterol-free oil served to you by a friendly staff member.
Fatburger is not a fast food chain. Ray describes it as casual dining.
“We customize your meal,” said Ray. “Once guests order they can sit down and one of our servers will bring the meal to them.”
Gift cards are also available at Fatburger and can make great Christmas gifts. Military families may want to check out the list of stores internationally and see if there is a Fatburger near their deployed loved one. There are Fatburgers in Kuwait, Bahrain, Dubai, among many other Middle East locations. It is recommended to pay attention to currency exchange rates when purchasing a gift card for those overseas because the rates still apply for gift cards.
Fatburger in Temecula is located at 40573 Margarita Road, Ste. D. For more information, call (951) 296-6340.
