Plans to open a Five Guys burger joint in Dundee have been approved.
The move paves the way for the gourmet fast food restaurant to open an outlet in Dundee's Overgate Shopping Centre.
An official opening date is yet to be revealed but Overgate manager Malcolm Angus said it could be in October.
The popular US chain will be located in the old JD Sports unit, next to where WH Smith was previously.
Diners will be able to take meals outside, with an outdoor seating area part of the successful application.
After opening its first Scottish store in Glasgow last December, the restaurant chain now has venues in Silverburn, Braehead and Fort Kinnaird shopping centres.
Dubbed the 'Willy Wonka of burgercraft', the chain shuns freezers and claims to use only the freshest ingredients.
With over 1000 outlets worldwide, the restaurant enjoys a strong backing from burger enthusiasts.
In the submitted plans, the Overgate’s owners write that opening the new restaurant would help to attract more people to Dundee's city centre.
"If all goes well Five Guys will be looking to start the shop fit in mid to late August," said Mr Angus.
"And, again with all things being well, the restaurant should be opening sometime in October."
The first ever Five Guys branch opened in Arlington, Virginia in 1986.
