I've had my fair share of Whataburger in the past and this is BY FAR THE WORST ONE EVER! It took 25 minutes to get my burger and fries,and when I finally got them the burger was lukewarm at best and the fries were atrocious....More

We had heard about Whataburger and thought we would give it a try. It was simply just average. Did not compare to an In-N-Out burger.

I can understand why it is so busy its excellent beefbergers and coffee. We visited a few times after Happy Hour at our motel - walked and caught the local free bus - The Wave.

This review is not based on the Whataburger food for it has always been edible. This review is directed at a certain woman who truly ruined the meal with her simply showing her bitter presence. Understood spoken orders well enough but when asked to up-size...More

It took about 45 minutes to get our food. We went there because we were short on time! There was nothing special or different about the burgers. The service was slow and againnothing noteworthy. The staff wasn't rude, but wasn't polite or pleasant either.

We have visited a few Whataburger's and although the formular is the same. The service and here and food for me did not quite feel as good. Its good for a quick snack or meal though.

This location was down the street from the motel. Whataburger is consistent with their quality of food, food was good and tastey. ON the downside, the employees could have been friendlier, if manager was on duty, could not tell, and as far as clean, I...More
