Renovations are complete at the former P.O.s Burgers location on Telge Road, which is being converted into a second location for popular Cypress burger restaurant The Shack. Owner Joe Duong said he is waiting on final inspections from fire and health code officials and expects to open within the next few weeks.

The restaurant will be similar in concept to the original on Cypress Rosehill Road, promoting a family-friendly atmosphere and a menu full of homemade craft burgers, Duong said.

“There may be a couple [of] special things added to the menu just for this location,” Duong said. “I want to have a burger or dish that memorializes P.O.s in some way. I have ideas in my head, but they aren’t finalized yet.”

The expansion included a new porch and patio area with outdoor seating. Duong also has plans to use the space next door as a music venue with additional room for indoor dining. Future plans include concerts with local bands and the occasional national and regional bands, DJs, karaoke, festivals and farmers markets.

“There are a lot of concepts that we’re working on,” Duong said. “We’re just going to jump in and make it happen.”
