Two people with only burgers and large drinks added up to more than $20. Adding fries, or anything else would send it much higher. The burgers are tasty, likely due to the extreme amount of grease that soaked thru the buns.
I love the number of choices they have for free additions to the burgers. So - I will return sometimes when I have a particular craving, but for the money, Whataburger is simply a better deal.
