One of California's most beloved burger chains has made its Texas debut: Fatburger, a chain founded in Hollywood more than 70 years ago, has opened a location in the mid-cities, specifically North Richland Hills, where it's part of a co-branded concept along with Buffalo's Express, a chain that specializes in wings.

Co-owner Maisha Bankhead says that the restaurant opened on June 1, and had a line out the door all day.

"We open at 11 am but they started lining up at 10:30 am and it went that way all day, which has been a challenge with social distancing requirements, but we made it work," Bankhead says. "There are a lot of people who've had Fatburger in California who've had a built-up craving."
