Acme Burgerhaus Reopens, Surprisingly

Acme Burgerhaus Reopens, Surprisingly
By Andrew Dudley - Published on June 15, 2013.
After suddenly closing three weeks ago, Acme Burgerhaus suddenly reopened on Thursday. What gives?

We spoke with owner Joe Dabit yesterday to find out what's up. Joe told us he had shuttered the location at 559 Divisadero after opening a second location in the Tenderloin and realizing he didn't have enough staff to operate both locations. Once the staffing issue was resolved, he was able to reopen the original. However, Joe told us the Divis location is still available for lease. He personally is a bit weary after 16 years in the business, and is fielding interest from several potential new businesses that want to move into the address. He's also toying with the idea of splitting the shop, with a half-burger, half-taqueria model. Joe says he'll keep operating the Divis Acme until someone takes over the lease or he makes a decision on the burger/taco hybrid. So for now, the location is back in business. If and when that changes, we'll let you know.
