Third Nashville-Area Whataburger to Open in Lebanon on Monday

New restaurant will open with drive-thru service only

Whataburger has officially made its way to Lebanon as the third Nashville-area restaurant, located at 630 S Cumberland, gears up to start serving guests starting at 11 a.m. on Monday, July 18. 

The restaurant will open with drive-thru service only, with plans to roll out additional services options including dining room access, ordering via the Whataburger App and Whataburger.com, curbside and delivery in coming weeks.

“We are hard at work training our dedicated team of Family Members to deliver our extensive menu of bold flavors, made to order, fresh and hot with a side of extraordinary hospitality,” said Operating Partner Kimberly Moss. “We look forward to offering our friends in the Lebanon community a chance to enjoy the great Whataburger experience at this time from the most convenient spot around -- their vehicle.”

Following full-service availability, Whataburger will celebrate its grand opening by welcoming guests inside to be served by its 175 local employees, called Family Members.

The new restaurant’s design pays respect to Whataburger’s storied history while looking to the future with forward-thinking features, including a state-of-the-art kitchen, an open-concept dining room and double drive-thru lanes. Interior details include custom wall art honoring Tennessee.
