The Whataburger of today is nothing like it was in the beginning before they automated so much of it. Used to be a grilled bun not a toasted bun. It's still OK, but nothing like it was growing up in Corpus Christi where Whataburger was born.

Old fashioned burgers are a treasure. Al's in Arlington, Kincaids in Fort Worth, Dan's in Austin, great little joint in Llano (can't remember the name). Always looking for a good burger.

I've said it before & I'll say it again.

For those who have never tried it you're really missing out. I would almost drive from Tyler to Buffalo just to eat one its that good.

There is not one in the city of Austin. The closest one is in Rockdale, Tx. just outside of Austin.

I'll second that comment. Great burgers, and they still manage to keep prices reasonable.

When I'm travelling around TX I need a DQ or Whataburger.

But, when I'm at home all I need is a DANS.

Nuff said.

I forgot to mention--if you haven't had a Five Guys burger, you are missing out on some serious burger greatness. They've opened a few in Houston. My heavens, they are LOVELY! Fast, too!

I'd take a Freddy's Frozen Custard steakburger over Whataburger anyday. Plus I can get a regular Oreo concrete for dessert. That concrete is 1010 calories too, so I don't have to eat anything else that day.

YES!!!!!! Oh, I miss Braum's! They do not have any in Houston, so anytime I visit the folks in North Texas I make a visit to Braum's.
Well, sometimes 2-3 visits.
