Bubba's 33, a family sports restaurant, has decided to locate in the Burlington Square center along Eureka Road, near Art Van Furniture and Men's Warehouse. Mayor Rick Sollars made the announcement during this week's City of Taylor Podcast, "Coffee With Mayor Rick Sollars."

This Bubba's 33 location is the second in the chain's history to locate in Michigan (one is currently being built in Macomb Township). The "Bubba's" name comes from CEO Kent "Bubba" Taylor (who also operates the Texas Roadhouse chain) while the "33" is a reference to 1933 -- the year that Prohibition ended in the United States.
Bubba's 33 is a big catch for the Burlington Square, located across from Southland Center. Burlington's in-line stores (like Furniture Liquidators, World Gym, Burlington and Perani's, for example) are located back off of Eureka, so the traffic to Bubba's 33 should enhance the greater center and attract even more retailers.
Bubba's 33 joins a host of new bars and eateries in the Eureka Way! corridor, one of Michigan's hottest development sites. BJ's Brewhouse & Restaurant recently announced it was locating in Southland Center; PizzaPapalis relocated from Dearborn to Pardee; and Pittsburgh-based Primanti's moved into the mall, replacing Ruby Tuesday's. Southland Center has reinvested tens of millions of dollars into the mall, and Menards plans to begin building its 80-plus-acre Trader's Point development (on the old Gibraltar Trade Center property) this spring.
La-Z-Boy also returned to the Eureka Road area, directly across from the Menards' project. It's showroom will anchor another brand new multi-tenant development there.
"Good things are happening up and down Eureka," Mayor Sollars said. "We will have more announcements in the near future, and Menards will certainly be announcing more locations coming to their property, as well."
