Former pop-up burger joint Illegal Food is about to become a permanent burger joint as of tonight in VaHi.

It’s bright, it’s airy, it’s got a taxidermied boar head and some photos of the chef’s grandfather—a four-time Golden Glove champion, pig roaster and all-around tough/wonderful guy—on the wall. Moving on...

After receiving half a cow each week (they receive half a cow each week) and breaking it down, they’ll make you many dry-aged-beef burgers. With pimento cheese. With bourbon bacon jam. With everything. Also: sriracha-honey fries and picklebacks. The picklebacks are important.

Or whatever the opposite of “not great” is.
