Chapel Hill, N.C. — Officials at Al's Burger Shack have announced that their second location will open on Sept. 18 in Southern Village in Chapel Hill.
The first announcement of the new restaurant came back in June, when owners said the new location will be serving up the same Al’s experience as the original Franklin Street restaurant but with more seating, free parking and an expanded menu.
The 1,500 square foot restaurant will include 30 seats inside and a large outdoor patio. Owners said the new restaurant's menu will feature some new items, including a turkey burger, a side salad and new types of french fries and beer on tap.
Al’s has been a favorite in Chapel Hill since its 2013 opening, and the restaurant is known for its funky atmosphere and and locally-sourced beef, vegetables and dairy products.
Al's has received "best burger and best fries" accolades in Indy Week and Chapel Hill Magazine and a #1 burger listing on Yelp. The new restaurant will be located near Weaver Street Market and Pazzo! in the Southern Village shopping center.
