The new restaurant is located at 1318 E. Walker St. It is owned by Tim and Stephanee Russell and will be operated by their granddaughter, Cheyenna Wimberley.

“I’ve worked in restaurants since I was 19, all over the place,” Wimberley said. “My grandfather was looking for an investment, and I guess he thought I’d be the best one to run it for him.”

Boomtown Burgers offers a breakfast and lunch menu and is open from 6 to 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. six days a week — Sunday-Tuesday and Thursday-Saturday (closed on Wednesdays). The restaurant has two dining rooms, one of which can be reserved for meetings, parties, etc., Wimberley said. Additionally, there is a drive-thru window.

The breakfast menu includes burritos, biscuits, croissants, cinnamon rolls, muffins, as well as coffee, tea, fountain drinks and bottled drinks. For lunch, the options include a variety of burgers, sandwiches and salads, and side orders of fries, tater tots and onion rings, as well as drinks. Blue Bell ice cream is also on the menu.

“We’re going to try and offer something no one else in Breckenridge offers,” Wimberley said, adding that the restaurant will be trying out new menu items from time to time. “We’re trying to make it as fast and convenient as we can; that’s why we have the grab-and-go breakfast items. And, our lunch items will be quick and efficient for people on their lunch breaks.”

The “Boomtown” in the name of the restaurant refers to nickname Breckenridge earned in the early 1900s when oil was discovered in the county. The walls of Boomtown Burgers feature many old photos of Breckenridge, many from the “boomtown” days.
