Best known for its Galley Boy Burger — a double cheeseburger with two special sauces (two!) — and nostalgic drive-in style, Swensons has announced that it will be adding its ninth location, this one in North Olmsted.

Since 1934, curbside runners have delivered classic milkshakes and burgers to hungry customers in the comfort of their cars.

The latest location is 27195 Lorain Road in North Olmsted. It will join others in Akron, Stow, Montrose, Canton, University Heights, Jackson and Seven Hills.

While an exact date isn't yet confirmed, we're hearing the North Olmsted location will open up this summer.

If you're not familiar with the restaurant but have heard of it and can't remember why: In 2015 LeBron James famously took Amy Schumer, Judd Apatow and Bill Hader on a road trip to get his favorite burger at the Akron location before their "Trainwreck" movie premiere.
