The Tennessee-based burger restaurant Jaws Jumbo Burgers will be making an April 2023 debut in Orlando, according to a recent press release. The restaurant will be located in the Dr. Phillips area of Orlando, though no specific address has been released.
“Jaws Jumbo Burgers is a tribute restaurant to the 1975 blockbuster movie JAWS,” the press release states. “For 37 years they have specialized in classic, fresh ground, 100% sirloin burgers. Their burgers are ground fresh every day, using locally grown, 100% Angus sirloin. Their burgers are designed to feed normal to gigantic appetites with single, double & triple-decker burgers.”
“Jaws Jumbo Burgers will be a spectacular attraction. The restaurant will feature many unique design concepts and fixtures, such as a 6 X 12 digital Jumbo Screen Shark Aquarium, a 10 foot Great White Shark replica that hangs from the ceiling, original movie posters in illuminated display cases and other collectible and interesting JAWS movie memorabilia,” the release explains.
Vice-President Paul Porter adds that “Our team recently visited Universal City Walk and Universal Studios in search of exciting food concepts. To our disappointment, we noticed there were no restaurants or food attractions that paid tribute to Universal’s classic, blockbuster JAWS. That was the moment we decided to open Jaws Jumbo Burgers restaurant, located 5 minutes from Universal Studios.”
What Now Orlando reached out to Co-Owner Darryl Gaddis to inquire about a specific address and potential future expansion plans, but he was not immediately available for comment.
