“We can’t wait to bring the community delicious food, exceptional service and a place to build memories for years to come,” operation partner Jesus Guerrero said. “We look forward to welcoming in and bringing the Whataburger experience to our new friends in the Woodstock area.”

The Woodstock City Council approved a request for Whataburger to build a new location back in 2021. The plan included tearing down the former Cherokee Family Medical Center property.


Last month, Whataburger’s first location opened in Kennesaw. A Channel 2 Action News photographer spotted lines wrapped around the restaurant and the block.

For Thursday’s opening, Whataburger says it has hired private security and Woodstock police to help direct traffic. Guests can enter the drive-thru line on Hwy 92 eastbound.

Whataburger said seven other stores are currently being built and they hope to open 50 more over the next few years. Here are the locations currently under construction.
