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.

Whataburger -- the original and still the best. Stick with the basics: Whataburger with cheese and mustard -- you can't beat it, unless you make it a double.

It was a fine lunch,burgers soda and fries. It was a fun stop since it was something new to us. Sort of a cross between fast food and restaurant. The people come deliver your food to your table and bring out condiments in a tray.

We would have to drive through twice in our visits. Employees were very friendly and food was pretty good. They start serving breakfast at 11 at night, if you're in the mood for something different.

Being from out of state, we gave this a try. The fries tasted like McDonalds, and the famous Whataburger tasted like a BK Whopper. Nothing Unique.

The managers were running around jumping the employees. Slowed down everything. They should had jumped in to help rather than to embarrass the employees and the customers.

We loved the burgers, fries, and shakes. It was really good fast food. The service was really good too.
