The patty melt was the best one I have ever had. The coffee milkshake was delicious. Great fast food for a change.

Amazed on how the employees handled their customers fast, friendly, well organized on the ordering, paying and receiving the food order. For being during the week of spring breakers and at noon time. Tables were clean and available to eat.

We were looking for a quick bite to eat after a long drive but the wait was longer than usual and the service was "slack". I usually receive good service from Whataburger but today they were a disappointment. Not sure I will return to this location instead I will search out a "sister" location in Port Isabel.

Even with the line wrapped around the building, we still ordered and got our food quick. Plenty of staff directing customers on where to go to get people in and out.

Whenever I;m in Texas I go to Whataburger...and I know some other friends of mine who do the same. I'm not sure if I'd rank Whataburger as high as In N Out Burger in California, but still, when in Texas, go get you a burger and fries at Whataburger. I might add that besides these two burger joints, I almost... More

This was our first ever visit to a Whataburger restaurant. The food was ok. Nothing special. It is in line with what you expect to get from a fast food restaurant.

This was my first time trying Whataburger. I have heard many good things and I wasn't disappointed. It was a decent sized burger for a good price. It wasn't an outstanding burger, but it was still very good. The service was quick, but the cashier we had was a bit immature, checking out the ladies when they told him their... More
