UPDATED: What’s going on with Brenda’s Bigger Burger?

Update: Brinda Bloyed Legg, the original Brinda who opened the restaurant more than 47 years ago, has confirmed via a Facebook post that the restaurant is closed for good.

Sorry to all our patrons…my Sons are going to do different ventures. 47 years is a long time. The property will be up for sale soon. Time to move on. Glad to know our burgers will be missed. They were the best.

We don’t want to draw any conclusions here, but let’s just say that we have some concerns about long-time Fayetteville burger (and onion ring) makers, Brenda’s Bigger Burger.

Here are the facts. They haven’t been open when we’ve tried to stop by for lunch on at least two separate occasions over the past couple weeks, during hours in which they have historically always been open for lunch.

There’s a growing stack of mail on the order counter that has been slid under the pick-up window.

Our attempts to reach the owners have been unsuccessful due to the fact that the phone number to the restaurant has been disconnected.

I don’t even want to say it.

Can someone tell us that everything is okay, and that nothing has happened to the much beloved Brenda’s Bigger Burger?

Someone. Anyone. Please?
