Chain newspaper surveys “Big changes coming to Big Four Burgers + Beer.”


It’s worth remembering that when Matt McMahan launched Big Four Burgers, the former South Side Inn footprint was an unusable wreck. Matt invested in the renovation, installed a restaurant (then expanded it), acquired the necessary permits and paperwork, and created value where there was little of it to be found.

Now Matt has sold this platform to Andrew Cox, who’ll invest his own money, time and experience toward reshaping and enhancing it. New capital, new blood and new ideas; this is a classic process. Let’s hope it leads to great things — and not forget that it was Matt who got this ball rolling.

Big changes coming to Big Four Burgers + Beer, by Erin Walden (A Multiplicity of Mays)

Big Four Burgers + Beer will close Nov. 9 and reopen the 18th with a new look and a (mostly) new menu.

 … At both locations, 114 E. Main St. in New Albany and 134 Spring St. in Jeffersonville, Cox is opening Big Four Brewhouse in the footprint of Big Four Burgers + Beers and Cox’s Hot Chicken in the footprint of District 22.

“It’ll look like a completely different place,” Cox said of the New Albany location. There, the interior decor will go from exposed wood and corrugated metal to a red-and-white paint job, iconic athletic jerseys will adorn the walls and a large graphic of the New Albany High School basketball court will be on display.
