BlogFood & DrinkGrub Notes

Free Fatburger at Both Walmart Locations Saturday

In addition to all the other food craziness hitting Athens tomorrow (Harry’s opening at 9 a.m.; The World Famous offering a tailgate breakfast starting at 8 a.m.; Herschel’s taking reservations), Fatburger, the West Coast burger chain, will be handing out free burgers and Coke Zero™ at both local Walmarts tomorrow.

Fatburger has no locations yet in Georgia, but two are scheduled to open this year, in Acworth and Cumming, both of which are misspelled on its website. The point of the promotional event is to hype the Fatburger-branded frozen burgers being introduced in Walmarts across the country.

The heavily branded food truck with the free grub will be at the Lexington Road Walmart from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m., and the Epps Bridge Parkway Walmart from 7 to 9 p.m.
