BurgerMonger will muscle into area

Move over, Red Robin. BurgerMonger, the restaurant on Dale Mabry Highway known for its gourmet monster creations, is expanding to Wesley Chapel. The sign with the hamburger-holding cartoon character went up a couple of weeks ago in front of the strip center on Bruce B. Downs Boulevard that houses First Watch cafe and Bonefish Grill. BurgerMonger, founded in the late 1980s by two businessmen, uses Akaushi beef in its burgers. The meat comes from a breed of Japanese cattle and is "several grades above USDA Prime," according to the restaurant's website.
