New Restaurant Going Up in Temple – What is This Place?

IMG_0746 IMG_0748 IMG_0751I’m always on the lookout for a new restaurant opening in Central Texas. As such, my eyes caught this new box going up in front of the W. Adams Ave. Walmart directly facing the newest Whataburger in town.

This new restaurant is going up very quickly. Problem is, I have no idea what it is. At first I thought it might be a Raising Canes. However, that’s mostly wishful thinking.

I then started thinking, what restaurants are far enough out that such a location would make sense?  Jack-in-the-Box popped to mind, as the closest locations of that chain are in Downtown Temple and on the main drag in Belton.  Then I noticed there were three drive-through windows. That’s not usually the format used by Jack, but is most definitely used at McDonald’s.

A McDonald’s directly facing Whataburger?  That’s a very bold move! America’s number one hamburger chain versus the chain most associated with the state of Texas. That’s a battle royale.

I thought about Dairy Queen, Chick-fil-A, Taco Cabana -you name it. Someone in the office suggested Burger King.  I know for a fact it’s not Arthur Treacher’s, Burger Chef, Bonanza, Shakey’s Pizza, Western Sizzlin’, or Kenny Rogers Roasters.

Soon, all will be revealed!

Thanks to Aaron for taking the photos.
