Whataburger coming to Opelika

OPELIKA, Ala. (WTVM) - A popular fast food chain is coming to Opelika.

Construction is now underway to build a Whataburger at what was formerly the O’Charley’s on Gateway Drive across from the Tiger Town shopping center.

Until now, the closest locations were more than 175 miles away in Canton, Alabama or Thomasville, Georgia. There is no word on the exact opening date, but a representative from Whataburger said it’s expected to be open by this summer.
