Krush Burger, the food truck turned brick and mortar burger chain, will open its Davis location on Monday, Feb. 3.
This location is near student housing and in a shopping center anchored by a Safeway supermarket frequented by both locals and part time residents. Other eateries in that shopping center include Dos Coyotes, Jack's Urban Eats, Jamba Juice, Panda Express, Noah's Bagles, Peet's Coffee and Togo's.
Krush Burger replaces Rostini Italian Kitchen, which closed in Feb. after a 2 year run. Prior to that, the space was occupied by a Strings Italian Cafe.
After opening its inaugural brick and mortar location at 700 N. 10th Street, Krush Burger has set its site on regional and international expansion. The next regional site Krush Burger hopes to open is in Roseville, and based on the Krush Burger Web site, its Dubai location has yet to open.

Edit: Here's more info from their press release, issued Friday morning.
We are proud to announce our newest Krush Burger location will open its doors in Davis, CA on Monday February 3rd at 11:00AM.
We recently finished construction of a 2500 sq. ft. space at The Marketplace shopping center on West Covell Blvd (1411 West Covell Blvd #111) in Davis. Krush Burger Davis will seat roughly 60 people inside and an additional 24 in a well-shaded outside patio.
In addition to our traditional Krush Burger menu, Krush Burger Davis will feature 12 beers on tap, from brewers throughout California and Oregon, including two handles dedicated to Track 7 Brewery of Sacramento. Guests will also be able to choose from 4 California wines on tap.
In keeping with the tradition of a fun-inviting atmosphere, Krush Burger Davis features over 240" of flat screen televisions, our signature 10' ceiling fan and two Coca Cola Freestyle machines, which allow guests to choose from over 130 soda options.
This is a major landmark for us, since starting as a humble food truck three years ago we have have welcomed two additional food trucks and three restaurant locations, with 2 additional restaurants planned for Spring 2014 in the greater Sacramento area.
We would like to thank City of Davis and Yolo County officials who have provided excellent and timely service and have allowed us to meet short construction deadlines.
As always we are incredibly humbled by the continued support of our fans, who have allowed us to continue in our growth efforts and serve this great community. We hope to see everyone at our new location and look forward to meeting the community of Davis over the coming months.
First Bite: Aji Japanese Bistro - Aji Japanese Bistro, located in the bustling Town Center, showcases an enticing selection of Japanese street food and fusion dishes, sushi, and traditional items. If you’re ready to break out of your Dynamite Roll and chicken teriyaki habit, make the trek to Aji for a plateful of braised short bibs, bathed in an enoki-shiitake mushroom demi-glace with kabocha mashed potatoes. Kira O'Donnell in Sac Mag.
58 Degrees & Holding Co.: Come for the wine - Occasionally, as a reviewer, I find a place that I want to like more than I can justify. We all have spots that we frequent despite underwhelming quality or ambience. They have other qualities that make them worthwhile, nonetheless. For me, 58 Degrees & Holding Co. is such a place. Ann Martin Rolke in Sac News & Review.
FreshMed Mediterranean Cuisine: The fresh and the unexpected - Still, after several visits, I’m still not really sure if I’ve seen or eaten any Afghan or Chinese food at FreshMed. I’m also confused about the real cultural or ethnic origin of any of these so-called Mediterranean foods. Still, most dishes have unique flavors, are somewhat healthy, and it’s refreshing that the restaurant focuses on having fun with a diverse menu. It’s worth visiting, even if you have no idea what you’ll get. Jonathan Mendick in Sac News & Review.
Counter Culture: Retro ice cream parlor fun - Soon, we were tasting a pretty good patty melt, a grilled chicken breast sandwich with pesto dressing that was a bit salty, “grown-up” grilled cheese sandwich with five undistinguished cheeses and bacon that needed to be crisper, a trio of tacos filled with tasty deep-fried fish fingers, and french fries three ways – plain, garlic and waffle, which became stale as they cooled off. The fare was OK, though it felt like it had been ordered off the kids’ menu. The ice cream was tops. Allen Pierleoni in the Sac Bee.
