Kirk’s Steakburgers, a Silicon Valley staple known for its char-grilled patties, is planning to open a new location in San Jose this year.
According to a recently submitted permit application, the eatery is taking over a space at 2509 S Bascom Avenue — the former home of Grill Em Steakhouse — where it will neighbor Court’s Lounge, Lucy’s Mexican Grill, and Signature Dental.
For readers unfamiliar with Kirk’s, the concept has been around since the 1940s and developed all of its menu options from “closely kept family recipes,” according to the eatery’s website.
In addition to burgers, its menu boasts deli and chicken sandwiches, salads, bowls, and sides such as onion rings and loaded fries.
“From the moment we light our open charcoal fires in the morning to the moment we lock up at night, we’re focused on freshness, service, selection, and convenience,” the business website shares.
