It will only offer drive-thru service with two lanes but plans to open the dining room and curbside at a later date.

“Our team couldn’t be more excited to make history and open Whataburger’s doors to the Atlanta community, said Johnson. For those visiting us for the very first time, we always recommend starting with the #1, our namesake burger, but you can’t go wrong with any decision when it comes to fresh, made-to-order meals from Whataburger,” operating partner Rydell Johnson said.


Whataburger expects heavy traffic in the area for the opening. The Cobb County Sheriff’s Department will be there to help direct traffic along with private security.

The Kennesaw location is one of many that the popular Texas chain plans to open in Georgia. Currently, the only location operated in the state is located in Thomasville, near the Florida state line.

  • 503 Lakeland Plaza, Cumming, Ga. 30040
  • SEQ Buford Dr and Exchange Dr, Buford, Ga. 30519
