Whataburger fans line up eagerly on opening day in metro Atlanta
ATLANTA, Ga. (Atlanta News First) - The very first Whataburger opened today in metro Atlanta and dozens of cars could be seen waiting for their chance to enter the drive-thru.
The fast-food burger restaurant is located in Kennesaw on Town Park Lane.
Atlanta News First photojournalist Ryan Bellamy spoke to some people who are big fans of the Texas-based burger chain.
People in line told Atlanta News First that they lined up as early as 8 p.m. Sunday, which means they slept in the cars just for the chance to be one of the first people to have a Whataburger in Georgia.
There are 10 additional restaurants planned for the Atlanta area in 2023 and plans for 50 more restaurants in 7 years, according to Whataburger.
At this time, it is only possible to order food at the drive-thru at the Kennesaw location. The dining room will open at a later day.
