Diversified Restaurant Holdings, Inc., the largest franchisee for Buffalo Wild Wings and creator and operator of Bagger Dave's Burger Tavern, announced the opening of a Bagger Dave's in Centerville, Ohio, on November 9. This opening marks the first location in Ohio.

The new Bagger Dave's restaurant is located at 5299 Cornerstone North Blvd., in the Cornerstone of Centerville. The 4,500-square-foot tavern features table service, an outdoor patio, and a full bar serving local bottled and draft beers, wine, craft bourbons, signature drinks, and adult shakes. Around 100 local employees were hired to fill positions at the new restaurant, which seats around 170 patrons.

"The Corner of Centerville is a 460,000-square-foot retail shopping center with Costco as an anchor tenant, making it a great fit for Bagger Dave's," says Michael Ansley, president and CEO of Bagger Dave's. "Locals will enjoy our neighborhood atmosphere, as well as our natural beef burger, fresh-cut fries, local craft beers and handcrafted sodas."

At Bagger Dave's, patrons can create their own fresh and never-frozen natural beef burger or hormone-free grilled chicken, all-natural turkey or veggie black bean burgers with a choice of 19 Meaningless Free Toppings and six premium toppings, including seven cheese choices, custom made sauces, a variety of artisan buns and more. A selection of Signature Burgers also are available, including the Train Wreck Burger, which includes Fresh-Cut Potato Fries, fried egg, cheddar, sauteed onions, lettuce, mushrooms, and Rail House Thousand Island on a toasted sesame bun.

Diners also can enjoy side items such as Fresh-Cut Fries, Dave's Sweet Potato Chips, Twisted Mac 'n' Cheese, a side salad, and a cup of Turkey Black Bean Chili. Bagger Dave's, founded in 2008, has identified a niche in the burger business with a modern interpretation of the old-fashioned neighborhood bar.
