Hurricane BTW opens on W. University Ave.

Hurricane BTW, a chain restaurant best known for its south Florida location, has opened a new location in Gainesville in a familiar spot.

The establishment is taking over the space in midtown that once belonged to Burrito Brothers.

Burrito Brothers closed last February after facing setbacks...Including the construction of the standard across the street.

Hurricane BTW is known for its burgers, tacos, and wings.

"We're going to go three or four more weeks, keep training our staff, get all the glitches out, then we're going to have a grand opening, a chicken wing eating contest, in March."

This is the first of multiple locations planned for the Gainesville area.
