Lines were bonkers back in August when Bobby Flay opened the first DC-area location of his fast-casual restaurant Bobby's Burger Palace on K Street. So get ready, College Park: a rep for the celebrity chef confirms that the second Bobby's Burger Palace officially opens to the public on October 13 with Flay there on-site along with a whole lot of college students. As has been previously reported, this new location will be parked in the Varsity, a fancy new student housing complex adjacent to the University of Maryland. It is the burger concept's second location on a college campus. The menu and general looks of things are expected to be the about the same as the K Street location, complete with regionally inspired burgers that can be "crunchified" with potato chips. Synchronize your wristwatches for noon, line-waiters.
