The wait is nearly over. Zombie Burger will be opening two locations in the corridor before the end of the year and we have the opening dates for both.

According to the Iowa City Press-Citizen, Zombie Burger + Shake Lab will open in the food court of Coral Ridge Mall in Coralville on Black Friday. That's November 25 for those of you who don't have a calendar close by.

The second corridor location will open its doors just a couple weeks later. That restaurant will open in downtown Iowa City, at 229 South Dubuque Street, on Thursday, December 8. It will seat about 100 inside, with an outdoor patio opening in the spring. The downtown location will have a huge mural showing Iowa City after an invasion by zombies. The mural will include zombies of Herky, Dan Gable, and a Bluebird Diner waitress.

Neither the Coralville or Iowa City location will sell alcohol.

These are the fourth and fifth Zombie Burger locations in Iowa. The first opened in Des Moines in 2011. The other two are in West Des Moines and Ankeny.

Get ready eastern Iowa. The Zombies are coming, and the first will be here four weeks from today.
