It’s official. The second MooSa’s location has officially opened at 405 N. 27th St. in a small retail space inside the BP gas station just off of I-94 and about five minutes from the Marquette University campus.
It’s the first year-round location for the popular burger and custard stand owned by Nas Musa, who also operates a seasonal location at 2272 N. Lincoln Memorial Dr. And that means fans of the brand’s burgers, wings and custard no longer need to wait until summer is on the horizon to get their fix.
The menu at the new location is similar to that offered at MooSa’s lakefront shop (think hot dogs, brats, walking taco and cheese curds); but guests will also find an expanded selection of burgers, including choices like the Cowabunga Burger topped with guacamole, jalapenos, mozzarella, sour cream, pickles, onions, tomatoes and lettuce ($7.95).
MooSa’s on 27th also serves wings (plain, Buffalo or BBQ), chicken tenders and fried chicken in four, eight, 12 or 24 piece portions, served with fries and rolls ($9.95 to $24.95).
And yes, there is also custard (cups, sugar cones and waffle cones), along with shakes and sundaes.
Musa says that the new restaurant is currently planning a grand opening celebration, which is slated to take place later this week or early next. During the celebration, guests can score free custard with the purchase of any MooSa’s burger.
MooSa’s is open for lunch and dinner with daily hours from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
