A well-known Russellville burger joint has expanded to Fayetteville.

CJ’s Butcher Boy Burgers officially opened a location at 3484 W. Wedington Drive, in a portion of the building formerly home to Cross Church next to Slim Chickens.

The restaurant got its start in Russelville in 2005, and specializes in hand-pattied, in-house-ground burgers and fresh-cut fries, along with milkshakes and malts. It is just the second location for CJ’s, though some family members have opened similar concepts around the state, including David’s Burgers at a couple locations in central Arkansas, and Patrick’s Butcher Boy Burgers in Fort Smith and Alma.

The Fayetteville location is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
