It is difficult for our family to drive by a Whataburger and not stop. It is said that there is another Texas "stop sign", but our is always the one with orange and white stripes. The one on the island is always full and the folks that work there are always happy to see you.

We eat Whataburger at home frequently. The quality is usually consistent from store to store. This time though the burger was burnt, the fries were old and the sweet tea was undrinkable. Unfortunately, it was a to go order or I would have gotten my money back.

A Whataburger is a TEXAS institution, founded over 50 years ago in Corpus Christi, and it has only grown in reputation over all those years. You can have it your way, having anything put on it with as many patties as you can eat...my favorite is a simple double meat, double cheese, with everything on it and sliced jalapeños! And... More

IT is the typical fast good hamburgers. Don't expect some different. Good is ok, average, for the prive. Good option when you are in hurry or with low budget.

Have never had Whataburger as we do not have them in Iowa. The hamburgers were not as good as burger king or mcdonalds. Expected them to be better.

One of the best fast food restaurants we have been to. Great breakfast, great lunch. Quick service. Friendly staff. We wish they would put them out in the midwest!

This was our first time eating Whataburger (after passing numerous ones while driving through Texas), and we liked it so much we returned two more times during our stay at Padre Island. Now I know what all the fuss was about. Fantastic food, nice staff. The place seemed like it was always busy, but you got through the line and... More

Best burgers we had on our trip! Wish we had Whataburgers back home! For fast food- it is a no brainer! And the service was quick. The manager was walking around checking on everyone in the place and it was busy.
