Whataburger, the fast food burger joint that people across the South love is finally coming to Tuscaloosa.
According to the Tuscaloosa News, the Tuscaloosa Whataburger location is hoping to be open by March, 2017.
It will be located near the Skyland Boulevard and Alabama 69 intersection according to real estate developer Stan Pate.
“Everybody needs to start getting ready for their made-to-order burger,” Pate told the paper.
In addition to a Whataburger, Tuscaloosa will also soon be getting a new Starbucks that features a drive thru located the intersection of McFarland Boulevard and 15th Street, close to the CVS Pharmacy.
Folks seem to be pretty excited about the new hamburger option in Title Town as Whataburger has been promised for some time.
“Beyond excited,” Whataburger enthusiast Nicholas Heady told WVUA-TV. “I’ve been tricked every single year. Every year someone says it’s going to be in Tuscaloosa, but it’s crazy that there’s actually going to be one.”
