Opening soon is a new Five Guys Burgers and Fries restaurant in Cool Springs, in The Shoppes At Thoroughbred Square II at 3021 Mallory Lane #130 Franklin, TN 37067. The restaurant will be going into the former Ming’s Chinese Buffet space. Most are familiar with this Cool Springs retail center because FedEx Kinko’s, Papa Johns, and the AT&T Store are located in it. Other tenants include Quizno’s Subs and Great Clips.
One space in the center just became vacant, formerly occupied by “PaintBlush”. PaintBlush was a concept similiar to the new Sips ‘N Stokes on Carothers Parkway in Cool Springs. The concept is people bring their own wine, beer or liquor while painting with instruction.
Brookside Properties is taking the former Ming’s Chinese Buffet space and splitting it in half. Ming’s will re-open as “Peking Palace” as seen on a hand written poster on the door in half of their former space. Five Guys Burgers will occupy the other half of the former Ming’s Chinese Buffet space. Great move by either Ming’s or Brookside Properties because it will add more diversity to an already great tenant mix in the center.
Initially I wasn’t very excited when I heard Five Guys Burgers was coming to town way back when. Another burger place, no big deal. Then I read they were “Zagat rated” and became curious. When they finally opened I went in with a friend and we really enjoyed it. The burgers will stop your heart but they are very good. Fries are so fresh, there’s a chalk board showing the daily location the potatoes came from. Its not cheap but hey you get what you pay for and everything was quality. I will be going in for delicious heart-stoppers when they open.
Five Guys Burgers currently has three locations in Nashville, this Cool Springs will be the 4th store opening. The three locations they have now include the Kroger shopping center on Franklin Rd in Brentwood, West End Blvd in Nashville and the H.G. Hill Center in Green Hills TN.
The photos below show the demolition in progress and gutting of the former Ming’s Chinese restaurant already.
A nice addition to the already huge selection of Cool Springs Restaurants.
