Texas-Based Burger Chain Whataburger Is Peppering Nashville With Nine Locations

Get ready for drive-thru late night cheeseburgers, taquitos, and honey butter chicken biscuits all around town


After having many breakfast taquito and spicy ketchup-slathered cheeseburger dreams shattered back in 2017 when job postings online proved false, Nashvillians will soon have nine, yes, nine locations of the Texas-based burger joint.

Decades ago, Whataburger had a few locations in Tennessee, but residents have long waited for the return of the popular drive-thru burger chain and its customizable burgers, , honey barbecue chicken strip sandwiches, and honey butter chicken biscuits.

According to the Nashville Business Journal, here are the nine future locations:

  • 5055 Old Hickory Blvd., Hermitage, which will have a ground-breaking ceremony on Aug. 3 and is scheduled to open this fall
  • 1131 Nashville Pike, Gallatin, to open in early 2022
  • 1835 Old Fort Parkway, Murfreesboro, to open in mid-2022
  • 450 TN-109, Lebanon, to open in mid-2022
  • 1715 Gallatin Pike N., Madison, to open in mid-2022
  • 400 Sam Ridley Parkway, Smyrna, to open in mid-2022
  • 621 S Cumberland St., Lebanon, to open in mid-2022
  • 11190 Lebanon Road, Mt. Juliet, to open in late 2022
  • 2606-2608 Lebanon Pike, Nashville, to open in late 2022

Harmon Dobson opened the first Whataburger in 1950 down in Corpus Christi, and it grew with over 800 locations across Texas and other nearby states. Most all locations are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
