Surprise! Popular Niagara Falls burger joint Rock Burger is expanding.
Opening in January 2019, Rock Burgers second location is at 8529 Niagara Falls Boulevard right down the street from the Fashion Outlets.
"I want to give back to Niagara Falls" Owner Jason Lizardo said.
The new location will have more seating and a full, expanded menu.
The need for a larger Rock Burger came after the original location would get long lines of hungry customers.
"We started to get an hour to two hour waits on a Friday afternoon" Lizardo said.
This second Rock Burger location is great for the City of Niagara Falls.
"It speaks to the enormous potential and opportunity here in Niagara Falls." City of Niagara Falls Councilman Christopher Voccio said, "For bold entrepreneurs who have a good product, a good service, they can make a lot of money in Niagara Falls."
Lizardo and Rock Burger believe the Niagara Falls opening is just the beginning, as they have more plans to expand.
