Excellent Burgers

When in Houston, a stop at Whataburger is on our to-do list. Not our #1 favorite burger, but right up there in the Top 5. We drive through and order a bag of the deliciously greasy (in a good way) burgers and fries, made to order. Definitely a cut above your typical fast food restaurant; the... read more

Heard the hype tried the heart attack, not impressed it must be a Texas thing, I love the state of Texas but I will try other local foods.

This burger did not float my boat! I know it was all fresh made and the staff are nice, but I thought the burger was horrible! The bun was dull, the burger a bit sloppy, and the sweetish sauce contrasted horribly with the salty bacon and cheese. Still a few months on it makes me feel a bit sick remembering... More

Flavorless burger which was an improvement over the somehow sour tasting chocolate shake and fetid odor wafting through the drivethru window .

I was hungry going to the airport and just wanted something cheap. I got it. Just a step up from mcd's and just as gross in the fast food category. Their was a mistake on my burger, I didn't want cheese but I'm glad it was on there because it was easier to force down the cold salty sandwich. The... More

The burgers are great...big, too! The restaurant was very clean and great customer service. This should be on your must eat list for lunch.

Whataburgers are good, but overall an average hamburger. Fries were greasy. The buns are not toasted which makes them soft with meat juices. Ice tea was sweet. Nothing special about these hamburgers. Restroom filthy.

Very disappointed with the quality of food with this TX restaurant. Will never stop here again. The sandwich was greasy and messy; had to take a second look to find the chicken breast.

If you are new to the State of Texas, you owe it to yourself to try this Texas Tradition. Most Texans if they have been vacationing out of the state for a week or more make Whataburger their first stop. The food is great, the atmosphere is fun and the service is fantastic.

Excellent burger and fries. I always pay extra to get the Jalapenos. Oh yeah! The place is clean and they crank out the food. My order is always right and fresh. Wish they had them here in my east coast home town.
