Fast food bosses have confirmed the restaurant will reopen its doors in January next year, according to the city of Leon Valley.

However, the bosses cannot give an exact date for the reopening of the restaurant.

The renovated Whataburger restaurant will feature a number of new features, including a double drive-thru and digital menu.

Whataburger has been a staple on the American restaurant scene since 1950, after the fast food chain was founded in Corpus Christi.

The chain has more than 650 restaurants throughout Texas and over 900 nationwide.

The US Sun has reached out to Whataburger for comment on the temporary closure of its Leon Valley restaurant.

Meanwhile, on September 11, a Whataburger restaurant in Daphne, Alabama – about 160 miles from the state capital of Montgomery – reopened after a temporary closure, according to Fox affiliate WALA.

The Laredo Morning Times reported that a Whataburger restaurant in the city closed earlier this year before moving across the street.

A new 7 Brew drive-thru coffeehouse is set to open in the location of the previous fast food restaurant.

In July, it was reported that a Whataburger restaurant would open on the Las Vegas Strip this fall.

Ed Nelson, the chain’s president and CEO, said, “As a city that never sleeps and a 24-hour brand, it only made sense to bring a Whataburger to the Strip.”

Whataburger isn’t the only fast food chain to temporarily close restaurants.

The US Sun reported that an Arby’s store in the Gulf Coast town of Ocean Springs, Mississippi, has been open and closed on and off for months.
