Very long wait at this restaurant. I love Whataburger and visit everytime I come from Indiana. Wish there were some in Indiana!

We stopped here on our way home for breakfast. Of course the food was good, but we waited 30 minutes for our breakfast. The guy that brought our food to the table was super nice, but like I said the wait was horrible. Hopefully they can get that fixed and squared away.

One of our favorite burger places to eat in Texas. Excellent burgers and the chicken with gravy rocks. Reasonable prices for quick delicious food and better than other fast food burger joints.

The workers were friendly and even though they were busy, our order was correct and food was good. It is nice if you want something quick and don't want to go to an expensive restaurant.

Clean and friendly. Two hamburgers were good, but chicken strips only ok - a bit dry. Can't always spring for a $$$ meal even on vacation! Since we don't live near one, Whataburger is a treat for us! There's also a McD's on SPI- but I wanted vacation food! Used the free ride -The Wave. Don't miss out!

Monday night of independence week came in at 11 hoping for a breakfast fix but they had started prep yet due to a few large family orders. Chicken bites were good size and moist. Fries were good too. Just a long wait and wasn't the breakfast we were craving

Ordered to go... Food was hot & fresh...ordered chicken for the kids & we had a burger & fries & onion rings...satisfying comfort food...fountain drink was fizzy so it went well with the meal...Breakfast items looked tasty so we will try them next time. Worth visiting at least once.

Thank H2OU
