University Place, West Virginia University’s first mixed use housing development, will add a casual restaurant to its retail lineup in time for the fall semester.

BnD’z Burgerz And Dogz, founded in October 2012 just outside of Pittsburgh, is scheduled to open its first college campus location the first week of August, just before students return, according to owner Doug Baros.

“Being able to bring our hormone-free, antibiotic-free and grass-fed meat to a college community at an easily accessible location to them is a great new venture for us,” Baros said.

The new location at WVU will have both indoor and outdoor seating and serve the same full menu as the other BnD’z locations, including the Big Daddy Bison Burger, Stuffed Cheese and Bacon Dog and Crazy Cow milkshake.

The restaurant will also accept Mountie Bounty, WVU’s student debit card.

BnD’z menu is built around all-natural, hormone-free, grass-fed beef, as well as 100 percent all-beef hot dogs, all-natural ground chicken and vegetarian burgers and hot dogs. All sandwiches also come with the option of gluten-free and multigrain buns. BnD’z accommodates patrons who follow a gluten-free diet with a separate fryer to prevent cross contamination. The restaurant will also offer draft and bottled beer, in addition to alcoholic and non-alcoholic milkshakes made with BnD’z “super premium” ice cream.
