Fatburger has opened its first branch in Seattle, with a new restaurant and full bar in West Seattle at 2378 Alki Ave. S.W.
The California-based international chain — other recent store openings have been in Qatar and Istanbul — recently closed its Bellevue franchise (saying it was due to lease issues), but also has Washington outlets in Issaquah, Lynnwood, Redmond, Federal Way, and Spokane.
News of the Alki branch, which shares space with the wings-focused Buffalo Cafe, drew more than 150 comments when the West Seattle Blog first found it was in the works, with plenty along the lines of commenter #5, “OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG!!!!”
Early Yelpers, though, said the new place, which opened Monday, needs time to get settled.
