New Kid on the Block: Burger Village

October 3, 2022

The Long Island-based chain Burger Village opened its latest outpost in July in the old Schnipper’s space on Church and Murray, and it has taken me this long to get a post up — even though we are big fans of the sweet tater tots and ‘shroom burgers already.

The brainchild of four brothers from Long Island: Sam, Nick, Vick and Ravi Yadav, Burger Village opened its first location in 2013 in Great Neck. They then expanded to Park Slope, Downtown Brooklyn, Hicksville, Farmingdale, Astoria and San Luis Obispo. This is their first on the left bank.

A new burger joint that features organic and exotic foods

By Nick Wilson – March 31, 2019 12:20 am

Yadav said the eatery will keep essentially the same menu in SLO that it has in New York.

“We strive to serve organic, all natural, antibiotics and hormone free products in the form of juicy burgers, fresh hand cut fries, salads, soups, shakes and other beverages along with delicious desserts,” the restaurant’s website states. “We believe that organic is sustainable and will always be.”

An ambassador for the brand, National Football League player, Prince Amukamara of the Chicago Bears, will be present for the SLO opening, which is expected in late June or early July, Yadav said.

The business also will hire an estimated 40 to 50 new employees closer to the opening date. Burger Village will break ground on remodels to the space on Thursday, and renovations are expected to take about three months before the eatery can open.

Burger chain featuring ostrich, other ‘exotic’ burgers to open in SLO

By Kathrene Herndon – March 7, 2019 4:55 pm ET

A new burger restaurant that specializes in exotic and organic burgers is expected to open in San Luis Obispo this summer. Burger Village is currently based in New York, but a Paso Robles man has entered into a franchise deal that will bring the restaurant to San Luis Obispo and four other locations in California.

Franchise owner Ashish Verma says they expect to break ground next week at 698 Higuera St., the former Natural Café location, and be open for business by July. “There’s a big organic market on the Central Coast,” Verma says of why he chose to bring the restaurant, which would source produce and other food from local farmers, to San Luis Obispo. “SLO is a perfect crowd.” Verma says the food is very healthy. “It’s all organic and we have seen a lot of different burger concepts but there is nothing like it… No one serves exotic and organic,” he says.

The exotic menu items he’s referring to include beef, bison, elk, turkey, boar, lamb and even ostrich burgers, which he says cannot be held with just one hand. There will also be more than a dozen vegan items along with salads, sandwiches, organic milkshakes, wine, 30 beers on tap and six organic sodas. Burger prices in New York range from $10.50 for beef to $16.40 for ostrich. Most toppings are extra. Ashish says he hope to keep prices in San Luis Obispo the same. An estimated 40 to 50 people will be hired to work at the new location.

The eco-friendly company was created by three Long Island brothers, who say their products are organic, all natural, antibiotics and hormone free and include vegan and gluten- and peanut-free choices.

Ashish is familiar with the restaurant industry on the Central Coast, owning the new El Polo Loco location in San Luis Obispo, along with ones in Paso Robles and Santa Paula.

By Paige McAtee (Patch Staff) – May 4, 2017 6:15 pm ET

Burger Village, an eco-friendly burger place with exotic meats, is opening its second Long Island location at the Hicksville Broadway Mall on Monday, May 8.

A free burger, fries and soda will be offered to the first 100 customers during Burger Village’s Grand Opening event. The store will open its doors at 11 a.m. Free fries will come with the purchase of any meal and customers will be offered free non-GMO popcorn while waiting for their food to arrive. Burger Village serves organic and exotic meats, including beef, bison, turkey, elk, boar, chicken, lamb and ostrich. The 1,800-square-foot location also offers vegan options, gluten free options, specialty salads, hand-cut fries, organic juice and milk, organic shakes and a full kids menu. “Burger Village will offer our guests delicious specialty burgers made with organic and exotic meats, a combination previously unavailable in the Hicksville area,” John Rossi, General Manager of Broadway, said in a press release. “We are delighted they chose to expand their concept with healthy options here.”

Burger Village is owned by Long Island brothers Sam, Nick, Vick and Ravi Yadav. They opened their first location in Great Neck in 2013, a second location in Park Slope in 2014 and now a third location in Hicksville in 2017. Burger Village is eco-friendly. It uses biodegradable to-go containers, cups, napkins and straws made from plant material. The walls of Burger Village are made with reclaimed wood and all of the meat served is organic, all-natural, grass-fed, pasture-raised, cage-free, antibiotic-free and hormone-free. The kitchen is also peanut-free.

“We’ve always considered this a great community and are looking forward to serving our delicious dishes to the families on Long Island,” the Yadav Brothers, owners of Burger Village, said. “It’s important to us to keep in mind the busy lifestyles of our guests and their desire to eat healthy, plus try something exotic like our elk, bison or boar burgers.”

Every single dish was spot on! The burgers, the BLT, fries, tater tots, onion rings were great. Service was awesome and very friendly and helpful

I really like this place! The interior is nicely decorated and the staff is so nice and accommodating. We had a large group (14 people) and they were so patient…

- Brandon C

Food is always good here and can’t forget the mixed drinks 🙌😊. Definitely a spot to try out.

I love this place. Been eating here for about 1 year or 2 and the burgers never fail to satisfy my hunger. Service has always been amazing. 😁

- Pupbun (Sean Zhang)

We walked into a nice cozy place. We got the lamb burger with California Mystery and Grilled chicken sandwich with signature side. If you check in on yelp, you get a free side of fries per table.

- Christine Paul C

I’ve ate here about 4 times in the last month, since I discovered it. Unfortunately they don’t deliver to my house so I have to drive about 49 mins to pick it up but literally the best organic burger I’ve ever had.
