Whataburger Isn't the Favorite Burger in Texas; Do You Trust the National Results?


SAN ANGELO – National Cheeseburger Day is this Sunday and Whataburger did not even rank among the top five burger chains in Texas according to a recent study.

According to the Burger Index- a study on consumption preferences and trends in America conducted by market research from firm Top Data, there has been a significant increase in the demand for burgers in the country.

To determine the favorite burger chains, TOP Data used a combination of GPS tracking data from the largest burger chains mixed with a survey of 1,000 Americans.

Not only did Whataburger not make the America ranking, Whataburger did not even break the top five in Texas, where A&W apparently has the best burgers. In Texas, the rankings went:

  • A&W Restaurants
  • In-N-Out Burger
  • Steak n' Shake
  • Shake Shack
  • Culver's

I'd eat there if their onions didn't smell like armpit. It ruins the entire experience. That smell transfers to everything, even your drink lids. It's fucking gross.

There's not even an a and w near me. Also, there's no way in and out is ranked above whataburger.  Any restaurant that you have to order off of the "secret menu" for their burger to be palatable,  can be NY good
