NFA Burgers is all grown up and moving out of the Dunwoody gas station it's called home since 2019. But the beloved and ever-busy burger joint isn't going far.

What's happening: Owner Billy Kramer has filed plans to build a new 600 square-foot home for NFA attached to the Chamblee Dunwoody Road gas station.

Catch up quick: After slinging burgers on a pop-up basis at Battle and Brew in Sandy Springs and Galla's Pizza in Chamblee, Kramer set up shop in a small cafe at the Chevron station just a few miles from his house. Fans followed.

  • Since then, burger fans have made pilgrimages to revere (and eat) the double-stacked burger punched up with melted American cheese, pickles, mustard and Kramer's "sassy" sauce.

Zoom out: Gas station food has moved past blistered hot dogs languishing on rollers under heat lamps. If you haven’t explored metro Atlanta's gas station taquerias, you haven't been living.

Of note: By expanding the space Kramer can also expand the menu (he's working on a smoked chicken sandwich with Grand Champion BBQ's Robert Owens) and, per Eater Atlanta, studying alcohol options.

What's next: The spot could be up and running by next spring, Kramer's team says.
