Phil's Grill, a build-your-own-burger joint, is opening a Warehouse District location Saturday at 748 Camp St. Phil de Gruy opened the original Phi's Grill in Metairie (3020 Severn Ave.) in 2007, and there's also a Harahan (1640 Hickory Ave.) location.

The menu also features a selection of gourmet burgers, including a turducken burger and the Fat City, a deep fried American cheese-stuffed Angus beef patty. There also are sides, shakes, floats, desserts, craft beers and a full bar.
