Bagger Dave’s to open in Avon


Bagger Dave’s Legendary Burger Tavern, a unique, full-service, ultra-casual restaurant and bar, will celebrate its grand opening at 11 a.m. July 21 at 9646 East U.S. 36, Avon.

The celebration will follow an invitation-only VIP Grand Opening Party at 6 p.m. July 19.

“We’re looking forward to sharing the Bagger Dave’s experience with the people of Avon,” T. Michael Ansley, president and CEO of Diversified Restaurant Holdings, which operates Bagger Dave’s, said in a press release. “We know that this will be the place for friends and family to meet up and enjoy a burger and local craft beer. We are expecting the Avon location to be a hit with the community.”

Based in metropolitan Detroit, Mich., Bagger Dave’s continues to expand its Indianapolis-area presence with one location on the northwest side of Indianapolis already booming. Construction is slated to begin this month on a new restaurant in Greenwood near County Line Road and South Emerson.

Like all Bagger Dave’s restaurants, the Avon location will offer a warm, welcoming neighborhood. The nearly 5,000 square-foot restaurant, which will feature full table service and a bar serving local craft beers and wine, will dish up fresh, never-frozen premium beef-blend burgers and all-natural ground turkey burgers.

With a choice of 30 Meaningless Free Toppings®, which include six cheese choices, three types of artisan buns, six house-made sauces and more, patrons can create their own legendary beef, turkey, or veggie black bean burgers.

A selection of Signature Burgers is also available on the menu, including the Tuscan Turkey Burger™ (sliced mozzarella, tomato, onion, basil and balsamic vinaigrette) and the famed Train Wreck Burger™ (fresh-cut fries, fried egg, mild cheddar, sautéed onions, mushrooms and Bagger Dave’s Railhouse Burger Sauce™).

The menu also features fresh-cut potato French fries, Dave’s Sweet Potato Chips®, Turkey Black Bean Chili® and Sloppy Dave’s BBQ®, as well as sandwiches, salads, and hand-dipped milkshakes.

Atmosphere is equally important at Bagger Dave’s, which was founded in 2008. The company has identified a niche in the burger business with a modern interpretation of the old-fashioned neighborhood bar. The restaurants are inviting for adults and children alike, with localized décor of the town’s historical past displayed throughout, a bar, and even an electric train that runs above the dining room and bar areas.
