A Twin Cities burger joint is set to open its first brick and mortar location.

The owners of Burger Dive announced Tuesday that they plan to open a location in the West Seventh neighborhood of St. Paul. Burger Dive had previously operated a pop-up location in Northeast Minneapolis. The restaurant also operates at the Potluck food hall at Rosedale Center.

The new location will take over the space of the former Bay Street Grill at 731 Randolph Ave. Along with its burgers, the location will also serve a variety of breakfast foods, unlike its other locations. The kitchen will be open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.

“Our food is what sets Burger Dive apart. It’s one thing to grab a burger and cold beer after work, but it becomes a destination when the burgers are this good,” said owner Josh Thoma in a release. “We hope Burger Dive becomes a neighborhood institution for years to come.”

Burger Dive will also feature raffles on Fridays and Sundays and trivia on Mondays and Thursdays.

Thoma, who also owns Smack Shack, and co-owner Kevin Fitzgerald grew up in St. Paul and said they wanted to bring the businesses back to the area. Nick O’Leary is also an owner.

“We’re excited to add another Burger Dive location, especially in St. Paul,” said Fitzgerald in a release. “Josh and I are both from here so opening this classic bar with Nick’s amazing food in our own backyard is pretty special.”

The new location is set to open Aug. 19.
