Located just off Interstate 80, Redrum Burger was a popular stopping spot in Davis for travelers passing through town. After 33 years as a Davis staple, though, the restaurant formerly known as Murder Burger closed this weekend.
Redrum Burger, located at 978 Olive Drive, closed its doors for the last time at 10 p.m. Sunday.
“We want to go out with a bang, so please come by this weekend for great burgers, shakes and fries,” a post on the now-shuttered restaurant’s Facebook page said.
Another Facebook post on the page told customers to look for upcoming announcements on the business’s next steps.
Ken Nason, a Davis resident, went to Redrum Burger on Saturday night and said it was packed.
“We just picked up our last order there tonight coincidentally,” he said in a Facebook message. “Happy to see they were busier than ever day before their last.”
The restaurant went by the name Murder Burger until 2001, when it rebranded as Redrum Burger at its customers’ suggestions.
The Davis favorite has a three-star rating on Yelp.
