It’s been in the works for at least 10 months, but Boynton Beach residents will finally be able to eat at BurgerFi next week.

Owner Phil Scavo plans to open his restaurant in Renaissance Commons on Monday.

Scavo built the restaurant in about 3,000 square feet of space taken from the 6,000-square-foot Hurricane Grill & Wings restaurant. 

The restaurant is at 1500 Gateway Blvd. at Congress Avenue.

BurgerFi started in 2011 and uses 100 percent natural Angus beef patties. The company says they don’t use steroids, antibiotics, growth hormones, chemicals or additives. It’s described on the website as a “Gourmet Hamburger Restaurant: French Fries & Craft Beer.”

More craft beer choices are part of this Boynton restaurant’s upgrade

With Burgerfi taking half of Hurricane Grill & Wings’s 6,000-square-foot space in Boynton Beach’s Renaissance Commons, the public isn’t only getting another burger place, but a new and improved Hurricane, too, its co-owner wants the public to know.

Construction at the restaurant at Gateway Boulevard and Congress Avenue is expected to start at the beginning of the new year. And the work on Hurricane’s side is expected to be finished in February.

But the restaurant will remain open throughout construction, according to a news release.

Here’s what’s in store at Hurricane:

  • An upgraded outdoor patio that can be used year round. It includes enclosures and a cooling system
  • New and more diverse craft beer choices and an upgraded beer cooling system
  • More televisions to make the restaurant a go-to sports watching destination

“Trends in casual dining tell us that our guests want convenience in a relaxed and enjoyable environment,” Hurricane franchise co-owner Peter Guala said in a statement.
