One afternoon in 2013, Jay Wolfson (a longtime restaurateur) was sitting out on the dock at his family’s boat-house in beautiful Kilmarnock, Virginia (The “Northern Neck”) taking in the breathtaking scenery, sipping an ice cold beer and enjoying a delicious burger he had cooked on the grill. It was a great feeling that Jay wanted to share with others. So Jay called his cousin Steven Sponder (also a longtime restaurateur) and said “Hey cousin, let’s open a seriously fun Craft Burger restaurant with local craft beers and live music. We’ll be fanatic about quality, and provide people with a totally unique experience!” That’s the moment the idea for NN Burger was born. Jay and Steven put their best ideas together and a few months later they opened the 1st NN Burger to a very appreciative crowd. A second successful location soon followed and the adventure continues. We invite you to experience our original NN Burger restaurant in Kilmarnock, VA. and our newest location in Tappahannock, VA.
