HOUSTON, Texas -- A social media influencer is generating buzz over his own restaurant.
Burger Bodega specializes in smash burgers.
The owner, Abbas Dhanani, came up with the concept after running the Instagram @Houstoneatz and working in the familys hospitality business.
Burger Bodega began as a pop-up before opening at its permanent location on 4520 Washington Avenue in November 2022.
The restaurant models a New York bodega while embracing Houston elements on its menu.
