Shreveport is getting a new hamburger spot. This place is called Hopdoddy Burger Bar. They are bringing specialty burgers to a whole new level in our area.

Hopdoddy is set to open inside the former Grub Burger spot on East 70th Street on Tuesday, December 13. Grub Burger shut down last week so the Hopdoddy folks could get in and make all the needed changes.

How Can You Get a Free Burger at the Preview Event?

Hopdoddy is hosting a VIP preview event on Saturday December 10 and you can sign up to nab a spot for this free event. But spots are filling up fast and you have to reserve a specific time. This event will give their staff time to train with the new menu and learn what the Hopdoddy culture is all about. At this event you will get to taste the craft burgers and hand-cut fries before they open for business.

Why Is the Place Called Hopdoddy?

The company website says "Hops are a flower used to make beer tasty & Doddy is a nickname for Black Angus cattle. Put them together and you have Hopdoddy! The world has plenty of places to get a burger & a cold one... we're just dedicated to do the best rendition out there."

Hopdoddy also gives back to the communities where they operate. A part of the proceeds from the sale of every "Goodnight Good Cause Burger" goes to charitable organizations.
This Hopdoddy expansion is happening across the country. They have acquired all of the Grub Burger locations which will nearly double Hopdoddy’s size. They will now have more than 50 locations across the country.
