Fatburger, a California-based hamburger restaurant, is coming soon to Keller. According to state records, a permit has been filed for construction of a Fatburger at 1521 Keller Parkway, Ste. 300, Keller.

The new location will be the fourth franchise in the metroplex, following restaurants in Arlington, Allen and North Richland Hills. Fatburger first opened in California in 1947 as a three-stool hamburger stand. The restaurant serves hand-pressed beef patties, scratch-made onion rings, homemade chili and hand-scooped ice cream, according to its website.


Records filed with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation stated that construction on the $430,000 renovation project is scheduled to begin April 15 and end July 15.
