Editor’s NOTE: A HUGE BURO SHOUT-OUT goes to BURO fan Malena who contacted us about this story and supplied the great photo!
BURO fan Malena contacted us yesterday to let us know about a Burnet Road building under construction with a huge vintage Dr. Pepper sign that had been uncovered. We did some digging and found out that the building at 4805 Burnet Road will be the second location for the Noble Sandwich Company, which already has a successful Northwest location at 11815 620 N. We spoke to Noble owner/partner John Bates and asked a few questions:
BURO: Tell us about the Dr. Pepper sign.
BATES: During renovations on the new Burnet Road location, the current siding on the building was removed and under it we found this beautiful hand-painted 1940’s Dr. Pepper sign! It sat atop a business called the Sunbeam Market.
BURO: What will happen to the sign?
BATES: We love the sign and plan to do some restoration and incorporate it into the overall theme of the new location.
BURO: What can BURO fans expect at your new Burnet Road location?
BATES: The new location has lots of space and we’ll definitely have a bigger kitchen. Look for some new menu items. Also, breakfast will be a big deal here!
BURO: I’m getting hungry – when will the BURO Noble Pig open?
BATES: Our goal is to open sometime this winter.
Northwest location: 11815 620 N. Suite 4, Austin, TX 78750
