TAMPA — Shula Burger, which once operated at the Tampa International Airport but recently closed, returns to Tampa. However, this time with its own restaurant location in the Soho District.

The Fort Lauderdale-based fast-casual burger chain named after legendary former Miami Dolphins coach Don Shula is one of six concepts under the Shula's Steak House's LLP empire which has successfully operated for 30 years.

Not too far from its Shula's Steakhouse location on West Kennedy Blvd, the burger chain will take over the space previously occupied by Pita Pit at 500 S Howard Ave with plans to open this Thursday, Feb 8 and a grand opening celebration to follow in March with an appearance from the legendary coach himself.

What makes Shula Burger different from the rest are fresh and never frozen burgers made from a blend of black angus beef, short-rib and brisket, and their buns come fresh from Tom Cat Bakery, one of the original artisan bread bakeries in New York City with Shula engraved in them.

Not in the mood for beef? The restaurant also offers a popular Goodseed Organic Veggie Burger, a marinated chicken sandwich, salads as well as hand spun milkshakes and sides such as fries and tater tots.

"We're excited to bring our concept to Tampa," said vice president of marketing and public relations Kristen Thompson.

"We're well known, Shula's Steakhouse, for our high end steaks and dedication to perfection in beef so our burger concept takes that same dedication to high quality beef and puts it into a burger."

Burgers start as low as $4.75.

Shula Burger operates from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday through Wednesday, and 11 a.m. to 4 a.m. Thursday through Saturday.
