The inside and outside of the restaurant was clean & nicely landscaped. Friendly staff that are willing to help. Great food what is supposed to be hot is hot & what is supposed to be cold is cold. Lovely atmosphere.

Haven't been to a Whataburger for 30 years or so, but stopped by in Columbus. What a good experience. Good food, good service, not like a Dan's Hamburger from Austin, but satisfying. Well done.

I too don't understand the low reviews. We were greeted promptly as we walked in, took our order, chatted a bit with the staff and sat down. Since chicken sandwiches are not the usual item they sell, we thought we were in for a bit of a wait. Our sandwiches were served about 5 minutes later, juicy, hot and just... More

Don't understand the low reviews. We have yet to have a poor experience at a Whataburger. This was no exception. We went in and was quickly greeted with a smile. We placed our order and in a few minutes, out it comes, freshly made and delicious. The store was very clean. Oh yes! We would go back.

Took forever and the food was cold. Most Whataburgers are decent, this one is the exception. I suggest going somewhere else.

After nearly two weeks in Texas I thought it was time to try a 'Whataburger' as they were everywhere. Went into the restaurant as wanted to look at the choices. What a choice! We had a bacon and cheese burger and a junior burger. Very nice indeed and good value too! Different alternative than a McDonald's or Burger King. Staff... More

I ordered food, I got it, I ate it. I mean really... it's fast food, not much to review here. Taste was OK, service was OK, so there you are. Your life will not change because you ate here, for the better or worse. (Though you'll probably get a little fatter.)

I've tried to eat at this whataburger twice and the wait was impossible.....more than 20 minutes to dine inside. They promised us a free hamburger for the wait....but we never heard anything from corporate.....feel like whataburger is not run like it used to be
