I had heard from many people about Whataburger and how good it was. Well i don't know what those people got to eat but what i ordered tasted horrible. Maybe it's just this location.

We go to Whataburger for good service, inexpensive, and consistent fast food. Actually preferred to have a grilled chicken sandwich, but the fries are excellent.
