JJ Watt calls on fans to ‘chip in and buy’ Whataburger after a majority stake is sold

I hope the Chicago majority owners do not institute 30:06 at Whataburgers now.

I’m a tried and true Whataburger fan.

Yesterday I ate at a Braum’s. One of the best burgers I have ever eaten.

We will certainly choose Braums or Legends over Squataburger all day any day.

Seems like most of the Whatabugers I’ve been in since moving to Texas leave a lot to be desired in food quality, cleanliness and the attitude of the employees.
Maybe that’s why the company is in need of selling out financially....they already sold out in quality.

Anyone who states that Whataburger makes the best burger has lived a very sheltered life!

My first visit to a Whataburger was in late 1965. A buddy & I went to Corpus and saw the one on Ayers St. We both had a double meat and cheese. They were great.
Today I only go to one if there is nothing else close. Their service sucks.....

Plans to take it Nationally. Probably means changing everything to suit East and West coast tastes.

The taste has gone downhill in the last few years. I don't see it getting any better.
