Meat is back on the menu at Yeah! Burger
Ten-year-old Westside staple Yeah! Burger is reclaiming some of its original identity. The sustainably focused hamburger joint closed for renovations during the pandemic and reopened in November 2021 as an all-vegan restaurant. Though primarily vegan founder Erik Maier strongly believes in the plant-based approach, the company’s profits decreased, and Maier and team decided to compromise. So last weekend Yeah! Burger quietly went back to serving its original beef-, bison-, and poultry-based menu, with the addition of vegan offerings.
