We are NN BURGER and we are No-Nonsense!

OUR STORY: One summer afternoon in 2013, Jay Wolfson (a longtime restaurateur) called his cousin Steven Sponder (also a longtime restaurateur) and said “Let’s open a seriously fun and high-quality craft burger restaurant. We’ll be fanatic about our ingredients, serve fresh hand-crafted burgers, sandwiches, salads, decadently-topped extreme shakes, local craft beers and cocktails in mason jars. We’ll have live acoustic music and provide people with a totally unique and experience they’ll want to come back for time and again!”  That’s the moment NN Burger was born. Jay and Steven put their best ideas together drawing from a lifetime in the restaurant business and opened their first highly successful NN Burger in Virginia. Soon after, a second successful Virginia location was opened. Suddenly the restaurants were winning awards from all over. In fact, NN Burger was voted “Best in Virginia” for the past 5 straight years in the Virginia Living Magazine’s annual readers’ poll. NN Burger now serves hundreds of thousands of people annually and we invite you to experience first-hand what food enthusiasts from around the country are raving about.
