[Spotlight] Burger Batch
What started as Small Batch Beer Company in Winston-Salem grew to Burger Batch, and opened right next door at 237 W 5th St. Now, the Burger Batch empire has expanded into High Point with the new location in Heron Village, located at 2758 Eastchester Dr., right across from the new High Point location of Duck Donuts. Burger Batch specializes in 8 oz. high-end burgers and fancy milkshakes, owner Tim Walker said.
“Burger Batch has done really well, so we decided to open another location here in High Point,” Walker said.
Walker said he has wanted to keep expanding ever since the start. Walker said High Point is a good location because there is a lot of traffic on Eastchester drive and it is right by the Palladium.
“It is right on the edge of Greensboro, we did not want to go into Greensboro, but now we kind of get both markets,” he said. “It is also close to the colleges, so that is always good.”
When I spoke with Walker on Dec. 29, he said that he anticipates the opening to be within the next two weeks in mid-January. Walker said there is not a date set in stone just yet, but there will be a soft opening for friends and family before the grand opening to the public.
Walker said one of the best-selling burgers is “The Morning After,” which is topped with a fried egg and served with french fries. Another best-seller takes after the name of the city it was born in, “The Winston,” which comes with Pimento cheese and potato chips on it.
“We change it up all the time,” Walker said. “We have a lot of different varieties, and our burgers are a really big deal. Our shakes are what really got us on the map; we have all these real, huge gourmet milkshakes with pieces of cake on top, or cotton candy and all sorts of stuff like that.”
