Is Heff's Burger Gone For Good?
SAN ANGELO, TX – Heff’s Burgers may be truly gone from San Angelo. The popular burger franchise is often “voted best burger," but it looks like it may be a while longer if they'll ever appear in San Angelo.
Nearly 6 months after Heffernan assured LIVE the restaurant would open in June of this year, Heff’s Burger is no closer to being opened. The building permit for the location has expired and it does not appear that another one has been filed. A sign in the new building's window indicates the CMS Properties out of Lubbock manages the property now. A call to the real estate company confirmed the structure is available for lease.
LIVE made multiple attempts to contact Heffernan to receive an update on the situation, but she was not available for comment.
LIVE! had previously reported on the trajectory of the restaurant in San Angelo and now it appears the story is coming to an end. In 2015, Inn of the Conchos sued Heff’s Burger for failure to $48,000 in back rent. The case was settled in court and Heff’s agreed to pay the owed rent and other court and attorney costs in 2018.
Heff’s customers were disappointed to learn the Abilene based restaurant appeared to be evicted from their North Bryant location. Visible on the front doors of the restaurant doors was a sign proclaiming the eviction and leaving loyal customers wondering where Heff’s would reopen for business. CEO Brenda Heffernan claimed at the time that they had left on their own due to many issues with the building.
Shortly after the eviction, LIVE reported that Heff’s would be reopening their doors on Knickerbocker, breaking ground next to the building that had been previously occupied by Stott’s Chiropractic.
The reopening at that location fell through and LIVE learned that Brenda Heffernan was planning to break ground on a completely new building on Sherwood Way in July of 2018. By April of 2019 the building seemed to be completed, but as soon as the structure was completed construction on the site ceased.
The official Heff’s website claims that new locations will be coming soon in Abilene and San Angelo, but no date has been provided.
