Unclean Restrooms

Mgr seemed surprised to see the uncooked meat on my sandwich. Unfortunately I had eaten most before actually looking at its level of preparation. When my wife & myself used restroom facilities, both were disgustingly dirty. All of this is too bad as normally What a burgers are "Ok".

The night staff is pretty unfriendly. Don't expect much for a fast food place. It was very cold. Not sure why but it was unbearable. Food was good. Fast. Just the temp was a bother. Smile pretty employees.

This Whataburger is run the way a store should be run, great food, great service, great time! This store is in a good location with enough parking to take care of the customers.

Stopped here for my teenager daughter! She is an Austin Mahone fan and apparently he loves Whataburger! After eating here, we would have to agree! Very good Whataburgers, Patty Melts, and chicken strips! Delicious!

When we are in Texas we eat at Whataburger. Found it on our honeymoon 26 years ago. Feel in love with Bobby and Whataburger.

Took out of town family here for late night food, they had heard how great Whataburger was and wanted to try. We were all disappointed, the bun on my hamburger was literally cold and the lettuce was yellow and gross. Meat seemed like it was not cooked when we ordered even though it was super late. One of the girls... More

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
