Tasty Burger, the much loved Fenway burger joint, will be opening its doors to South Boston customers, but with no patio.

On Thursday, the city’s Licensing Board approved request for a food serving license for 69-71 L St. but denied the request for a seasonal 20-seat patio.

The hours will be from 8:00 a.m. – 11:00 p.m. Sunday – Thursday and 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 a.m. Friday – Saturday.

There will be no inside seating and food will be served through a take-out window.

Tasty Burger currently has one location in Fenway and is expected to open another one in Harvard Square by the fall.

“We like South Boston a lot,” David DuBois, the CEO of the Franklin Group, the parent company of Tasty Burger told Boston.com in May. “Plus it’s a cool opportunity to do a little burger stand.”

The new restaurant will be located in the former home of the Boathouse.

Tasty Burger’s move to the neighborhood isn’t a first for the Franklin Group, it currently operates the Franklin Café Southie at 152 Dorchester Ave.
