Honorable Mention #21: Whataburger
Ask any Texan where they get their burgers, and they’ll all tell you exactly where they get their burgers.
Same thing: Whataburger, and even for good reason. Big Whataburger’s it is!
With diners able to choose from any mix of tomatoes, cabbage, onions, pickles, ketchup, mayo, jalapenos, cheese, bacon, fried peppers, and even avocado, the gimmick is personalization.
New, fried, and nicely seasoned are the patties themselves, while the bun is
sweet and toasted. Yeah, and they’re also a nice size, with the Whataburger
Patty typically turns out to be much larger (as well as better) than many of its competitors. The downside to such a big patty and bun, sadly, is that it’s all the
flatter for that. If you want the best of both worlds, you will have to add the best of both worlds, you’re gonna add another Patty. Still, we can’t get anything, though.
