UPDATE: Owner Wes Teeters has confirmed that the new location will open in about two weeks, and will operate Monday through Friday from 6:30 AM to 3:00 PM.

One of Temple's favorite locally owned restaurants is nearing a grand reopening!

Wes's Burger Shack 'N' More will soon open its doors at 1323 S 57th St - former site of the recently closed Bosses Pizza. While we'll sincerely miss Bosses, we couldn't be happier to see a familiar sign hanging there!

Wes's Burger Shack has long enjoyed a reputation as one of Temple's hottest spots for lunch. Back in June of 2014, the former location on Main Street was destroyed by a fire, but that didn't slow owner Wes Teeters, who was graciously invited to share space with The Green Door.

The awesome food and service didn't skip a beat then, and Wes said Friday that it won't this time either. Expect to see some familiar faces and the same level of courteous service and community when you visit the new location.

Wes was kind enough to show a co-worker and me around the interior, which is being repainted and remodeled. The work seems to be going well, and Wes plans to have an entire wall dedicated to Temple Wildcat memorabilia, as well as a Texas flag wall - both traditions at Wes' Burger Shack.

I know I'm not alone in being thrilled to see Wes's Burger Shack returning to Temple, and I hope to see all of you there opening day!
