Woo Woo Burgers Pop-Up
Monday, January 3
Indian Bend Wash Greenbelt Park
8300 N. Hayden Road, Suite D-101, Scottsdale
Woo Woo Burgers, a ghost kitchen concept that the restauranteurs behind Z’Tejas Southwest Grill, is holding a pop-up event in Scottsdale on January 3 on the lawn behind Z'Tejas. Woo Woo Burgers initially opened in the spring, operating only out of the Chandler Z’Tejas location. Starting on January 3, the full menu will be available for pick-up curbside or online via third-party food delivery platforms. To celebrate the Scottsdale expansion, the first 200 people will get a free meal: a sandwich, side, and drink (from 11 a.m. until supplies last).
Woo Woo Burgers is a throwback concept with a straightforward menu of burgers, chicken sandwiches and sides. The concept uses fresh, never frozen, hormone-free beef and chicken.
