NORTH OLMSTED, Ohio -- Hungry to gobble up a Galley Boy?
Wait no longer…
Swensons, the iconic Akron burger chain, officially opens its new location in North Olmsted on Friday at 27175 Lorain Road. The new spot started serving customers last week with a "soft opening."

“For anybody who grew up in the Akron area they kind of know it, but for anybody who's unfamiliar with the drive-in experience, this is all curbside dining,” Swensons spokesperson Crystal Griffith told WKYC when the chain opened its University Heights restaurant earlier this year.
Known for its signature Galley Boy, which is a double cheeseburger smothered in two homemade sauces, Swensons is consistently ranked among America's best burger spots. It's even a favorite of Akron native LeBron James.
Last 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:
