We got taquitos for breakfast here. This is your typical Whataburger chain. But the taquitos were stuffed full and were fresh and HOT!! Good food, good service!!

WB is my go-to fast food anywhere in Texas! I've never had a bad experience at any of their locations and it's my standard grab-n-go chow when I need a fix.

We went for breakfast and the food was good, got biscuits and gravy and its the first time ever that I got it and it had no sausage in it, I was very disappointed. But the worst part was the service. The girl in drive thru was rude, acted like we was an inconvenience instead of appreciating our coming there.... More

The food was as expected from any Whataburger. They are quite busy for lunch, the time we went. The wait is a little long but mostly because of the business.

I'm a Whataburger fan, no doubt about that. I really enjoyed the #2 combo with cheese. The burger was made perfect, just like I like it. But again, it's Whataburger, can't complain .

We were greeted by the manager when we walked in. He was so cheerful and it just made the visit so nice. I've been to a ton of Whataburger restaurants and never been greeted like that. He came around to make sure the food was great and said goodbye when guests left. Loved it! Thanks for the personal touch.

We ate here a couple times during our week on South Padre. Always crowded, but the service and the food were good. You can only eat so many seafood buffets.

We do not have a Whataburger in my town, what a pity. Good fast food burgers & fries. Beats any other fast food burger in my opinion!

Thank momof4wifeto1
