Walli's Restaurant in Burton, Michigan has been a landmark location since 1972. The Walli family sold the business roughly eight years ago, along with the popular Walli name.

Fast forward to 2022, the now iconic building has been demolished and a member of the Walli family took to social media recently to set the record straight about the family's involvement with the restaurant after the sale. The message was shared via a second party on the Burton City Chat Facebook page,

These are just a handful of the kind words people had for the Walli family and their businesses.

Regardless of what happened with the new owners, the question now is what will open next on the property? You may remember at the beginning of the year there were quite a few rumors flying as to what was opening in its place.

There was talk online of everything from a blood bank, to a weed shop, and a gas station. Some were hopeful at the time that the spot would be the home of a Red Lobster or even a strip club.

Whatever business opens in this location, I hope they have a cool retro sign like the old Walli's sign.
