One afternoon in 2013, Jay Wolfson (a longtime restaurateur) called his cousin Steven Sponder (also a veteran restaurateur) and said “Let’s open a seriously fun craft burger restaurant. We’ll be fanatic about our quality, serve decadently-topped shakes, local craft beers, have live music 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 opened their first successful NN Burger in Kilmarnock, Virginia. A second successful location soon followed (in Tappahannock, Virginia) and the adventure continues. We now serve hundreds of thousands of people annually between our two restaurants and we invite you to experience first-hand what Craft Burger enthusiasts around the country are calling the “Best Burger” they’ve ever had!
