The food was not good. The fries were cold and tasted old. There was no ice in my tea! The burger was dry and the young lady that took our order really couldn't understand english very well. We eat at Whataburger a lot so I...More

I don't know what all the fuss is about. My first burger there was just not all that. It was big and cheap but dry and no seasoning on the meat. I didn't order any specialty toppings, I just wanted to try the basics and...More

We waited for over 20 minutes after ordering our food to receive our four meals. When we received them, the burger wasn't hot and they gave us the wrong condiments and no salad dressing for the salad, although it was requested. I wouldn't waste my...More

Our burgers were substantial in size and very tasty with good fillings. My chocolate milkshake was also good. Service was friendly and would go back again.

Since 1950, Whataburger has proudly served a bigger, better burger. It all started when a young entrepreneur named Harmon Dobson had a bold idea: to serve a burger so big that it took two hands to hold, and so good that after a single bite customers couldn't help but exclaim, "What a burger!" He named his humble burger stand in Corpus Christi, Texas, "Whataburger." Over six decades later, we're still family owned and operated. Each and every Whataburger® is still made to order. We still use 100% pure beef and serve it on a big, toasted five-inch bun. And now, as we proudly serve burgers, chicken, salads and breakfast at more than 800 Whataburger locations across the country, that first burger stand is still close to our hearts.
