Happy beerthday

Wayback coming

The ever-competitive hamburger culture in Oklahoma is getting as crowded as the chicken finger industry as another national brand seeks a foothold in the state.

Connecticut-based Wayback Burgers arrives this summer in Edmond with local franchisees Jonathon and Maria Unruh at the helm.

The restaurant will offer burgers — beef, turkey and vegetable — milkshakes, housemade chips and fries in the style of a “hometown burger joint.”

“We believe that the area is a great fit for the brand, and we look forward to bringing excellent service and top-notch burgers, fries, shakes and more for foodies in Edmond and beyond,” Jonathon Unruh said in a press release.

Wayback Burgers’ first Oklahoma location will be 3217 S. Broadway in Edmond.
