Whataburger menu has fans in Texas: review

The very first thing that captures my eye when entering Whataburger is the variety on the menu. What hamburger should I get? Did I require to try some chicken? French fries or onion rings ?? I’m overwhelmed– and, according to my editor, I make a fatal mistake by failing to order taquitos, an uncommon discover at a hamburger chain.

Hollis Johnson/Business Expert Thankfully, Whataburger’s service has a relaxing quality. The workers offer me a number to take to my table, and assure that food will follow.

Hollis Johnson/Business Insider An employee even brings over ketchup alternatives for me! Honestly, I’m not exactly sure if they’re this great to everybody or they can tell I’m flustered after driving through Dallas’ maze of highways following five years of taking a trip exclusively through mass transit, but it’s valued in any case. The spicy catsup is likewise really great– a classic with a kick.

Hollis Johnson/Business Insider In an effort to dip into the variety of Whataburger’s menu, we bought the onion rings and patty melt to complement our more traditional burger order.

Hollis Johnson/Business Insider Let me start by stating not enough chains serve a patty melt, a simple but in some cases exceptional choice to its burger bro. At Whataburger, the patty melt stands strong, cuddled on the menu amongst other “All-Time Favorites” like the Honey BBQ Chicken Strip Sandwich and the Green Chile Double Hamburger.

Hollis Johnson/Business Insider Whataburger’s patty melt lives up to the hype, layering 2 patties with grilled onions, Monterey Jack cheese, and velvety pepper sauce. It’s not aiming for development, but it is tasty.

Hollis Johnson/Business Expert The onion rings have a comparable hearty appeal. The damaging is high-quality and doesn’t slip off the onion ring, producing a well-crafted and gratifying ring.

Hollis Johnson/Business Insider But exactly what about the hamburger? Inning accordance with company lore, creator Harmon Dobson wished to develop a five-inch burger that was so big people could not assist however exclaim “What a hamburger!” when they took a bite.

Hollis Johnson/Business Expert Whataburger certainly offers a big hamburger for your dollar– big and rather flat, cut from the same fabric as fast-food peers such as McDonald’s. This isn’t the topping-laden hamburger of In-N-Out or the over-the-top video game changer of Shake Shack and even Five Men.

Hollis Johnson/Business Expert Whataburger instead churns out classic fast-food hamburgers, and it does it well. I wasn’t screaming “Exactly what a burger” after taking a bite, but I did say– in a normal indoor voice– “This hamburger is respectable!”

Hollis Johnson/Business Expert No single item on Whataburger’s menu genuinely blew my mind, consisting of the fries that I wolfed down without photographing. Possibly I just had to consume more– I was shamed by various Texans for failing to snag a Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit.

Hollis Johnson/Business Expert I left Whataburger full, however yearning something more. The quality of the food and the menu’s untapped potential beckons, calling me back to Texas.

Hollis Johnson/Business Expert Whataburger might not be the one burger chain to rule them all that some Texans declare it is. It is a gem– a skilled chain with a vast menu that will keep you coming back for more.
