We've been touting the opening of Twisted Root, the Texas-based burger joint known for their exotic meat offerings, for a while – and now we can finally announce an opening date.

The fast-casual chain will open its first Florida outpost inside a 4,000-square-foot space at the Grove at Winter Park retail complex (on Aloma Avenue near Howell Branch Road) on Nov. 12.

Twisted Root's signature burgers are half-pounders, with patties ground fresh in-house every day.

But in addition to such common proteins as beef, buffalo, Wagyu, turkey and chicken, they offer a rotating selection of exotic meat burgers like elk, ostrich, camel, venison, boar, duck and rabbit.
