Texas Has The Largest Whataburger In The World Because Why Wouldn’t We?
First I would like to start off by saying I was today years old when I realized that Whataburger isn’t just a Texas thing anymore, and I am truly distraught about that. But no matter how many orange A-frames go up in other states, Texas will always be home to the greatest burger chain in all of creation, and we'll always have that to be proud of. In fact, we're home to the biggest Whataburger location in the world.
WHERE DID WHATABURGER FIRST BEGIN?
Even though now we share Whataburger with all of the United States, we still have the largest Whataburger in Texas.
For the people that don’t know, the Whataburger headquarters is based in San Antonio, even though the chain's humble beginnings were in Corpus Christi. The company was founded by Harmon Dobson and Paul Burton and officially open the first restaurant in Corpus in 1950.
WHATABURGER BACK THEN
When Dobson and Burton first open the majestic burger joint, those delicious burgers that we so enjoy these days were only $.25. It's a good thing I wasn’t around in those times. I'd probably buy five at a time.
Given their ties to the gem of the Texas coast, it's only right that the Whataburger location in Corpus stands at three stories tall. If you’ve never visited, you really should consider stopping in next time you make it down to the Gulf.
WHAT DOES CORPUS CHRISTI WHATABURGER INCLUDE?
Each level of the Whataburger shows you a little bit of history about the establishment. You can get an idea of how far they've come while enjoying a beautiful view of the Gulf of Mexico. It’s absolutely gorgeous out there, and the food is just as delicious as any other Whataburger in Texas.
DELICOIUS TEXAS PRIDE
There are many things that started right here in Texas that we should all be a little proud of, but one that always takes the cake for me is Whataburger. You will not be disappointed if you get a chance to check out the Corpus Christi location with all its history and awesome food.
