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.

Ordered double meat double cheese grilled onions and a #7 junior burger with cheese toasted buns in both. My husbands fries had a hair. Disgusting

Whataburger food is always good. We were disappointed how slow the drive thru was in SPI (20 min wait).

This store was as expected. The service is never fast at Whataburguers - at least for me...The food was good and as I said, as you would expected from your neighborhood Whataburguer.

The best hamburger you will ever eat and the soda machine let's you have all the free refills you want. I like to mix four or five favors together in the same cup. The parking lot is very clean and sunny. Oh, do not forget to try their French fries!

These guys were really friendly as that greeted us with welcome to Whataburger and smiles as soon as we walked in. As always, quick service and a darn good hamburger.

Of all the burger places that are springing up around the county and even here on SPI, it is surprising that Whataburger is still in business. I have never had worse burger food in my life. I don't think McD's or Burger King are that good, but these burger places are terrible. The beef patty is tiny, the flavor is... More
