…of the Town Center location, specifically. In August, the Daily Mail reported that both Five Guys Burgers and Fries and Qdoba Mexican Grill were opening new locations at the Charleston Town Center and at Southridge in the Dudley Farms plaza.
Both restaurants will share the former Gratzi location at the Town Center and are scheduled to open before the holidays. Five Guys will occupy the space that was formerly All Care Dental at Dudley Farms and Qdoba will occupy part of the space where Shoe Carnival used to be.
Five Guys Burgers and Fries is hugely popular and has 750 locations in 40 other states. I’d heard about it a few years back and ate at one in Myrtle Beach. I’ve yet to eat at the Huntington location in Pullman Square. Five Guys is known for its gigantic burgers and fresh-cut fries. I thought it was good, but nothing all that special.
Qdoba is a “fast casual” chain that serves “fresh Mex” food. There are over 700 locations throughout the U.S., including at the Huntington Mall in Barboursville. It sounds a lot like Cilantro’s, which I loved, so maybe I’ll give it a try soon.
I predict both restaurants at both of their new locations will do well.
