According to a recent article from the Daily Herald, Rep’s Burgers will be opening in the old Arby’s building in Palatine at 139 N Northwest Hwy.
A representative of Rep’s Burgers was not immediately available for commentary upon What Now Chicago’s request.
Daily Herald’s article states that the new concept is slated to open sometime in the fall of this year. The owner and operator, Mike Reppe, of Rep’s Burgers, is also behind Rep’s Place Sports Bar in Rolling Meadows.
Rep’s Place is described as having a dream of creating a family-friendly, sports-style restaurant and bar. His vision has become a reality, with overwhelming family support. The local neighborhood hang-out will be involved in the community and give back to the town he grew up in, and it is stated that they will dedicate themselves to providing quality service, great food, and drinks, according to the company website.
For Rep’s Burgers, they will have a menu featuring smashed burgers, smashed chicken sandwiches, milkshakes, and a selection of beverages that includes beer, wine, and hard seltzers. A convenient drive-through option will also be available, yet it’s important to note that this feature will not extend to alcohol sales.
According to Loop Net, the property size is 3,000 square feet and was originally built in 1990. There are 36 parking spots for patrons, with the drive-thru and pylon sign are listed as additional amenities for the property.
