As I was traveling along Route 9 in Ocean County I spotted the workers busy getting the new Burger King ready in Forked River and I thought "ya I could go for a whopper".

The work continues on the new Burger King in Lacey Township and it looks like it won't be long before it opens next to the new Chipolte.

You may remember there was a Burger King at the Lacey Mall for years, that was removed and now this new one is popping up near the Home Depot plaza in Forked River. There are several food options at this location now with Taco Bell, Chipolte, White Castle, Wendy's, and soon Burger King.

This new section of Lacey Township has lots of dining choices now and this Burger King will be the latest to open. No word on an actual opening date.

I remember growing up my Dad was a Burger King guy. He didn't eat a lot of fast food, but when he did it was always Burger King. The whopper was his favorite. I do like the whoppers and onion rings at BK.

Do you have any word on the opening date? we will try to keep you posted and if we get word we will let you know :) in the meantime, the only Burger King in this area would be the Burger King on the Graden State parkway in Forked River.
