Cook-Out, a chain based in North Carolina, will build at 1801 Walton Way, which intersects with Crawford Avenue, said Augusta Planning and Development Director George Patty.

The half-acre site, across from Tubman Middle School, used to house a Hess gas station that was demolished in October 2011.

The restaurant serves milkshakes, barbecue, hamburgers and hot dogs.

There are more than 100 Cook-Outs across North and South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.

The Augusta restaurant would be the first in Georgia, according to the restaurant’s fan-operated Web site.

An estimated opening date has not yet been announced.

The owners could not be reached for comment Wednesday.

The Augusta restaurant will be about 1,400 square feet, said Bob Austin, Augusta’s planning and zoning administrator.

The Kroc Center is doing great things in Harrisburg, and the 25 acre development near Kroger will only improve the entire area further. Hopefully these articles will appear on the Facebook page, and shared during the local news.

The Mills portion of the GRU Cultural/Mills campuses would take Harrisburg to another level(coffee shops, bookstore, restaurants, retail, etc on Broad/Walton Way). The Kroc Center and Martha Lester school are both in the same area.

So excited about all these

So excited about all these plans. I too believe Azziz is a change agent, as the other article mentions. I have a feeling there are many negotiations going on at the higher level with the "movers-and-shakers" that us regular folks know nothing about. So hold tight and think bright future for Augusta!

And that will make how many

And that will make how many fast food joints within that mile stretch? Oh we'll, I guess it's better than an empty lot.

Off message a little bit; but

Off message a little bit; but I can already see the cars lined up around the building when they open just to get : milkshakes, barbecue, hamburgers and hot dogs.... I've never seen the like in my life; folks in the CSRA will flock to any new chain restaturant and wait in line to get the same food they can get down the strret.
