This location had piping hot fresh taquitos exactly how they should be made. The hash browns were soggy. The service was great and fast.

As I stood in line to place my order, SHAY, who appeared to be the manager said a four letter word that starts with an "F", right in front of me. She was hollering at her crew and said "WTF" to them. IMO, not acceptable...More

I went a couple of weeks ago for breakfast. I had a biscuit with white gravy that was oh so good. I also got hash brown sticks, which were pretty good. Service was great.

Coming from a part of the country where there is no Whataburger, I was looking forward to a good meal. Unfortunately, the whataburgers were just awful. I couldn't even eat it - they had somewhat of a chemical taste, maybe freezer burn, something was definitely...More

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.
