Harmon Dobson opened the first Whataburger restaurant in Corpus Christi more than 60 years ago. In the time since, the Texas-based burger biz has expanded with more than 700 locations in 10 states, including a popular Reliant-area outpost located on Houston’s South Main Street.
Today, Harmon’s son, Tom, remains at the company helm, continuing his father’s mission to serve made to order burgers using 100% pure American beef. Grilled jalapenos, extra bacon, three slices of cheese, no tomatoes, extra pickles? No problem. Each order is prepared fresh 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Aside from the classic Whataburger, other popular menu items include the Whatacatch fish sandwich, the Whatachick'n Chicken Sandwich and taquitos. Whataburger offers a breakfast menu—along with regular menu items—from 11 p.m. through 11 a.m., daily.
