Way back in 1950, an adventurous and determined entrepreneur named Harmon Dobson opened up the world’s first Whataburger on Ayers Street in Corpus Christi, Texas. He had a simple goal, to serve a burger so big that it took two hands to hold and so good that with one bite customers would say, “What a burger!” He succeeded on both accounts and turned that one little burger stand into a legend known throughout Texas and the South.Today, each and every Whataburger is made to order, right when it’s ordered. And they’re still made with 100% pure American beef and served on a big toasted five-inch bun with all ‘the extras’ to suit your taste. Grilled jalapenos, extra bacon, three slices of cheese, no tomatoes, extra pickles? No problem, your Whataburger will be made just like you like it 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
