How It All Started
Longtime friends Jeff White and Luis Colon launched a new concept, JDubs Burgers and Grub, slinging stick-to-your-ribs burgers, sandwiches, shakes and desserts.
“I’ve had this idea in my brain for about three years, and it’s taken a pandemic to actually be able to facilitate it,” said White, formerly of Boiler House at the Pearl and Eastside Kitchenette. “It’s now or never.”
JDubs Burgers and Grub will deliver via Uber Eats and Favor, and it will also operate a ghost kitchen at 1017 N. Flores St., the former 5 Points Local, where burger hounds can enjoy their meal on the spacious patio.
“We’re just … neighbors [that had been] talking about making the best of a shitty 2020,” said Colon, whose past eateries include FOLC and Bexar Pub. “We both wanted to get back to making good, fast food. We’ve been known to make a good burger or two so why not partner up!”
