Texas is home to the bigger, better burger. Whataburger uses only fresh ingredients, 100% pure American beef, served on a big, toasted five-inch bun. In 1950, Harmon Dobson opened a hamburger restaurant. Dobson’s goal was to “make a delicious burger that took two hands to hold and tasted so good that when you took a bite you would say ‘What a burger!’
Whataburger was known for many years for its distinct A-framed orange-and-white-stripe-roofed buildings.
One of Whataburger’s most popular items isn’t on the menu, but diners go home with it all the time. The Texas-based burger chain is so beloved in the South that its “table tents”—the little plastic A-frame order numbers customers get as they wait for their food to be delivered—often don’t make it back to the stack at the cash register.
If you haven’t stolen a Whataburger table tent with your lucky number (or your birthday or anniversary or jersey number) on it, are you really a Texan?
I mean, probably not, but have you ever stopped to think about the fact that literally thousands of people are stealing these numbers. And also, it is stealing. Which is illegal!!
Whataburger does enjoy all the free advertising. You can even buy a full set of them on Ebay.
So stop by a Whataburger if you are visiting Texas. You will agree with me that this is one delicious hamburger!
