The Big Chicken reopened Thursday morning after receiving a major makeover. 

Renovations at the Marietta landmark lasted for more than three months. An estimated $2 million was spent on sprucing up the popular restaurant, which was built in the 1960s. 

Improvements have been made inside and outside, including a new screened-in patio. There's even a store where you can buy Big Chicken souvenirs! 

A red carpet was placed in front of the Big Chicken as it reopened at 11 a.m. Thursday. FOX 5 was there for the special event. Take a look at the photos above!
