Viral YouTube Star Brings Mr. Beast Burger Shop Back To East El Paso
Alright, so one thing my son is very good at is making sure I am kept up on the latest YouTube stars that he is obsessed with. One in particular is a name I have heard before, Mr. Beast, also known as Jimmy Donaldson who is considered YouTube royalty because of his over 215 million followers across social media.
Mr. Beast is known for his random acts of kindness, hugely dramatic giveaways, and other random stints that have given him millions of views on YouTube.
But Mr. Beast is also known for his popular line of burgers. Yup. Actual burgers that are actually really good!
But there’s a catch to these burgers. You can only get them in select cities and they can only be delivered or picked-up. There’s no restaurant to sit in to enjoy these burgers because they are only offered at what is called a “ghost kitchen.”.
A few years ago my son had me order some burgers from Mr. Beast Burger after he found out they had one here in El Paso.
My GPS took me to Horizon to a small mom and pop car repair shop that had a car wash attached to it and in s small corner of the shop was a young man cooking burgers.
If it wasn’t for a huge banner that had the Mr. Beast Burger logo on it, I would have thought that my GPS took me to the wrong location.
We waited a while for our burger because apparently these Mr. Beast burgers are in high demand but I wasn’t mad about the wait because these burgers were delicious!
A few months ago we tried searching for that same location to order a burger but unfortunately the small burger spot wasn’t open anymore.
Fast forward to this month though and I was surprised to see a photo shared by a friend that said Mr. Beast was back in El Paso!
“Dominic Cabral has been wanting to get a Mr. Beast Burger for over a year! Well, I found out that they were gonna start selling them here in El Paso on the 19th so I had the most excited kid ever when it showed up at the door for dinner,” read a Facebook post shared by Diana Cabral.
What’s The Concept Behind Mr. Beast Burgers?
According to his website, Mr. Beast joined forces with Virtual Dining Concepts to create MrBeast Burger–a virtual restaurant brand, now available to order across the U.S. for delivery only.
Mr. Beast Burger is available for restaurants to prepare out of their existing kitchens as a way to generate a new revenue stream.
The menu is accessed only via apps and it is delivered directly to your door.
