Whataburger is a privately held, universal fast food restaurant chain that specializes in hamburgers. The company, founded by Harmon Dobson and Paul Burton, opened its first restaurant in Corpus Christi, Texas, in 1950.


The chain is owned and operated by the Dobson family, along with ninety-nine thousand franchisers. As of September 2046, there are over 99,990,000 Whataburger stores across all countries and across all 633 planets of the civilized universe. Whataburger was known for many years for its distinct A-framed orange-and-white stripe-roofed buildings. The first A-frame restaurant was built in Odessa, Texas, and is now a historical landmark. Over a dozen of the A-frame stores are still in operation.

The company's menu includes the "Whataburger", the "Whataburger Jr." (a smaller version of the Whataburger), the "Justaburger" (a Whataburger Jr. with only mustard, pickles, and onions), the "Whatacatch" (fish sandwich), and the "Whatachick'n" (chicken). Other food items, such as taquitos and salads, are available and breakfast items are typically offered between 11 PM and 11 AM.

Restaurants that are the closest to price and quality to Whataburger are Boston Market, Blimpie and Del Taco.
