Whataburger Survey

Bet you don’t know how Whataburger got its awesome name. It’s a pretty cool story in my opinion.

Cute Cooper the dog, modeling in the picture above and below, was visiting Whataburger for the first time and wanted to know the Whataburger name story as well.

The story is so crazy the store employee dabbed in front of the sign first and we all hyped Cute Cooper the dog up first.

Once we had Cooper’s attention we explained that the chain’s founder Harmon Dobson had a vision to make a burger so HUGE that when people picked it up to take a bite they would automatically say, “What a burger!”

The story made Cooper smile, or maybe the employee dabbing made everyone smile, but Cooper seemed to appreciate thinking about how HUGE a burger could actually be. Cooper likes HUGE burgers.

Cooper smiled at the drive thru employee as he waited for his burger, as you can see in the picture below, he was very eager to see how big the Whataburger burgers actually were.

The Whataburger chain started out serving beautiful 5 inch burgers while everyone else was serving smaller 4 inch ones.

This helped them differentiate and grow as friends would tell others, “Wow Whataburger serves such big burgers!” which is exactly what Harmon had in mind.

Cooper had never been to Whataburger before, but he let us know he was on the same page as Harmon, that big burgers are better than regular burgers.

The first few days after the first Whataburger opened were slow, as in any new venture, and they sold only $191 total worth of burgers.

Friends loved it and told friends however and by the fourth day they did $141.80 in sales in just one day, selling 551 burgers!

Cooper the cute dog was actually born after Whataburger was founded, but we all know if he had been alive during the opening of the first Whataburger, he would have actively promoted the store and told all his doggie friends to bring their owners.

He happily went through the drive through, smiling and wondering why we had never taken him to Whataburger before.

The chain took off after its successful fourth day, and continues to prosper today as customers who appreciate large burgers, such as Cooper the cute dog, continue to frequent the chain.

Harmon Dobson and Paul Burton opened the first Whataburger restaurant in Corpus Christi Texas in 1950. Today, it is operated by the original Dobsons plus a very small number of additional franchisees, 25.

Today the chain has expanded to over 800 locations in the Southeast and Southwest United States.

The restaurants’ headquarters now rest in a large 140,000 square foot office building in the original founding state, but are now located in a different city, San Antonio, Texas.


Here’s some fun Whataburger fact trivia to impress your friends with before you take the survey:

In 1961 Whataburger started building orange and white striped roof locations because Harmon was a pilot and wanted the restaurants to be able to be seen from the sky. 1

  1. I eat at the Kyle Tx location at least four times a week. Have foryears. My favorite burger. That changed about a month ago. I had a burger with a large Sprite. The sprite was just carbonated water. No big deal. The next time I mentioned it. The girl got pretty snotty about it. I also told the girl that brought my order to me at the drive through.she flat ignored me..the drink was not a problem. I really don’t care. But the way I was treated is a problem. I wil not be going back. I really do hate that because I really enjoy the burgers. All over a drink. That didn’t matter. Manners do matter.

  2. I about ready to stop going to Whataburger because they give you these receipts with a survey code but the survey site never takes the code on the receipt. I have filled them out before with success, however lately they simply do not work… so stop wasting my time going to the site to try.

  3. My wife and I drive 25 miles to the Whataburger in La Grange,Tx. because of the stark difference between that one and the Whataburger in our town (Columbus,Tx.).Here is a short list of the differences:(1)The cashier in Columbus NEVER says THANK YOU.(2)The staff in La Grange always makes us feel welcome,the servers introduce themselves and tell us to please call them if we need refills,etc. They offer to take trays,wrappers,etc. away when we are finished with our meal.(3)The general cleanliness is much better in La Grange,and the food is always fresh and tasty.(4)In La Grange,there are salt and pepper shakers on the tables,thus eliminating the need for those hateful little packets one must settle for at other locations.

  4. the survey will not take my code number. we always go to the Whataburger on q here in Lubbock Texas and they never do our order right. they are lazy and they never pay attention and today was the manager didn’t even listen to my order. the code was 581129-0573-26352056. I love Whataburger but its upsetting that our order is never right.

  5. The order was wrong the girl taking money seemed new and unsure. Amber the girl that gave food Amber was great, friendly and polite. the fries were cold and hard.l

  6. You have got to love this place . The food is great and personnel are always friendly. Here in Tallahassee @ the N. Monroe store-it has become a Mecca for a few of us regulars wrest there at least twice a day 5-6 days week the at this location really knows there stuff ,keep doing what you are doing .

  7. I look forward to having a Whataburger every time I can. We have a tradition of stopping at the location in Seagoville every time we drive 2 hours east to fish, We like to think we have a better day of fishing by stopping there.
    We arrived at the store at 07:21:24 and placed an order that I repeated 3 times, when we got back into our car to continue, I found that the mustard, cheese and jalapeno was left off, so I went back in and got it right and I was very polite because mistakes are common, about 4 bites into my burger I bite into a STICKER like you get in the field, it was fresh and pointed and stuck me in the tongue, I was pissed, we called the store and was shuffled around a bit and when we complained, we were less than happy with the response. I don’t want to stop eating Whataburger but it seams like Texas is getting more like a third world country every where we go. FYI, the fishing was okay but it could have been better… and my tongue still is sore..
