KNOXVILLE (WATE) - The Strip on UT's campus welcomes another new restaurant into town on Tuesday, and it has some ties to the big orange. 

 Burger Fi is opening next to Firehouse Subs and Krystal.

The concept is all fresh, grass-fed beef, fresh cut fries and ice cream made daily with no preservatives.

You may recognize one of the owners, Albert Haynesworth, who played for UT from 1999 to 2001, and then later went on to play for the Titans. 

 Haynesworth says his burgers will be your new favorite. 

He told  6 News that he doesn't plan on this being the only Burger Fi in East Tennessee.

He hopes to open up more in Knoxville, perhaps West Knoxville or Turkey Creek, and maybe even Pigeon Forge.
