The second Pine Street Burgers will be located at 736 Taylorville Rd., Suite D (see map). Interior renovations of the building, once a Bank of the West, are underway.
“We’ve been in negotiations for some time, and we just started improvements on the space,” Suzie told us. “The menu and general look of the restaurant will be identical to the existing location.”
The Dyers hope to open this summer, but it’s too early to tell.
The original Pine Street Burgers opened in August 2013, featuring all-natural burgers, house-made vegetarian burgers, buns without additives, hot dogs, wraps, fresh salads, and hand-scooped, all-natural shakes.
It quickly drew a loyal following and is considered one of the best burgers in town. What’s the PSB difference, the Dyers ask? “We feature Durham Natural Beef, free range chicken, Max’s artisan burger buns, Dryer’s Vanilla Bean Ice Cream and Coco-Bliss dairy free ‘ice cream.'” The restaurant also offers online ordering.
We enjoy the “Smoldering Pine Burger,” with bacon, chipotles, grilled onions, mushrooms and swiss cheese, and the “Asian Chicken Salad,” fresh romaine, grated parmesan cheese and crunchy noodles topped with grilled sliced free range chicken breast served with asian dressing on the side, among other items.
The Dyers opened the South Pine Cafe in Nevada City in 1996, and later a second one in Grass Valley. “Our idea was to create a restaurant that would appeal to any type of clientele, from the biscuit and gravy connoisseur to the vegan, and anyone in between,” as George has said.
