“An overpriced over hyped burger joint.”
Review of Whataburger

Whataburger
Ranked #18 of 134 Restaurants in Lufkin
Cuisines: American
Description: Since 1950, Whataburger has proudly served a bigger, better burger. It all started when a young entrepreneur named Harmon Dobson had a bold idea: to serve a burger so big that it took two hands to hold, and so good that after a single bite customers couldn't help but exclaim, "What a burger!" He named his humble burger stand in Corpus Christi, Texas, "Whataburger." Over six decades later, we're still family owned and operated. Each and every Whataburger® is still made to order. We still use 100% pure beef and serve it on a big, toasted five-inch bun. And now, as we proudly serve burgers, chicken, salads and breakfast at more than 800 Whataburger locations across the country, that first burger stand is still close to our hearts.

WAAAAY overpriced for just run of the mill burgers. Service was apathetic. Food was hot, but so what.

This was our first Whataburger experience. My wife ordered the grilled chicken sandwich which completely filled her up. I tried the patty melt which came loaded with two large beef patties, smothered with cheese and grilled onions. I had a hard time finishing it. The food was quite good, prepared and served fresh and hot.

Traveling through Lufkin & stopped at Whataburger. Whataburger is one out favorite quick foods & they have wheat buns. A little slow, but makes up for it in the special order. Had 3 special request & they got them all right! Great food, fresh & hot. When inside to order 'to-go'. The young lady, Terri was very nice. Thank you for a great fast food experience in a small town.

Not used to finding a Whataburger on the end of a strip center. Food was hot and fresh. Wait at drive thru reasonable. One of the best Whataburgers I have had.
