The owners of a popular midtown diner are working to open a second restaurant in Mountain View’s Glenn Square shopping center.
Kriner’s Burgers & Pies hopes to open its doors by August, an employee said Thursday. According to the business’s website, construction at the new eatery is about to begin. It will occupy one of the vacant storefronts near the yet-to-be-completed, 100,000-square-foot Bass Pro Shops.
The restaurant is one of several new businesses setting up shop or expanding in Mountain View. Earlier this month, Chugach Brewing Company announced plans to open a five-barrel craft brewery and tasting room on Mountain View Drive.
Kriner’s Diner is owned and operated by longtime Alaskan Andy Kriner, who began his restaurant career more than 30 years ago at Sourdough Sal’s in Soldotna. Today, his diner serves breakfast, lunch and dinner from an aging building on C Street.
Kriner’s Burgers & Pies will feature newer architecture and a sweeter side.
“All handmade, all fresh, all good!” reads the eatery’s Facebook page. “Family owned and operated.”
