This restaurant actually announced it would take over the old Perkins location about a year and a half ago, but we now have a little better timeline of when it will open.

We've seen it time and time before but the most recent instance was the opening of the Royal Farms in Brick.

It was announced back in 2018 that we'd be getting one and it didn't actually open its doors until the end of 2022.

Another instance that comes to mind is Freddy's Custard And Steakburgers.

Rumors have swirled as to when one of those was going to come to Ocean County.

There's a location in Linden New Jersey, but between you and I, I'm not driving almost 50 miles for a burger.

Back in 2021, it was announced that Ocean County would finally get a Freddy's Steakburger in the former Perkins location off 37.

How exciting!

Thanks to delays with COVID, however, it's been pushed back several times.

If you're thinking "oh great, another burger chain coming to the Jersey Shore" I'll admit I was right there with you.

I mean, when you have Burger 25, Barrier Island Burger, or Woody's at your fingertips it may seem like a little much.

But options are always a good thing, and these Freddy's Steakburgers look pretty good!

So, When Will The Freddy's Steakburger Open In Toms River, NJ?

According to Toms River Online, Freddy's has begun the interior demolition of the old Perkins after getting held up on the approval process for the restaurant's drive-through.

A representative from Freddy's says that the new location will be ready to serve the community by late spring or early summer of 2023.

It may not be the hard open date we want, but it's a step in the right direction!
