COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Galley Boy goodness could soon be heading south…

The iconic Akron-based drive-in burger chain is hoping to open their first restaurant in Columbus at some point in 2018.

“According to Columbus zoning documents, MG Rome Hilliard LLC proposes replacing a former bank branch at 7490 Sawmill Road with a Swensons drive-in,” WCMH reports.

Meanwhile... Swensons will soon debut its newest location in University Heights, which is expected to open this month at 14510 Cedar Road.

Known for its signature Galley Boy, which is a double cheeseburger smothered in two sauces, Swensons is consistently ranked among America’s best burger spots. It's even a favorite of Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James.

For those of you who have never experienced a meal from one of the chain’s seven eateries, Swensons is a drive-in style restaurant where employees race out to your car on foot.

Earlier this year, the Swensons food truck dropped by WKYC's studios to show what it takes to grill up their famous Galley Boy sandwich. Here's a look back at that visit:
