"Oh, they started in Corpus Christi and expanded all over the state."
I'm not sure what bearing that has on "How are the burgers at Whataburger?" but that was the response I got no less than six times.
I guess I should have asked it the same way I did when I would ask about another apparently endless chain in the area;
"Is the Waffle House as scary as it looks?"
By the way, I was told Waffle House is well worth checking out so please hold your angry pro-Waffle House emails-- I don't even like Waffles.
But I do like Hamburgers. It took quite a bit of convincing to get Veronica to go in, but once inside with it's somewhat worn down interior and slightly dirty counter I was just about to turn around and leave when one of the people I thought was asleep piped up (and by piped I mean mumbled) "Welcome to Whataburger, can I take your order?"
What the hell, I thought-- take a chance.
And I had probably the best burger I've had outside of a Kobi Burger at EVO on Park Ave or one of the dreamy burgers at Gourmet Market at Porter Square in Cambridge. And the fries were pretty good to. I also loved the packaging but I'm a sucker for orange.
If WhatABurger heads east, I'll be the first in line.
