At Whataburger, Gabby Cohen takes a drink from her chocolate milkshake. “The shake was pretty good,” Cohen said. “I always enjoy the sweetness of a milkshake with the saltiness of some fries.”

Gabby’s Review of Whataburger:

Whataburger is a great option for off campus lunch. The price for a full combo meal is just over $10, a very reasonable amount. A plus is that with use of the free Whataburger app, pickup can be scheduled for any time within 24 hours of the order being placed. The whole process of ordering ahead and quickly grabbing the food when you get to the restaurant is very efficient. Whataburger is located within the McNeil and Parmer plaza, a distance from the school that makes getting your food, eating and getting back to class within the allocated lunch time manageable. The food itself is nothing special, although the fries are delicious when they are hot. Overall, Whataburger is just your average fast food place but the reasonable price, efficient ordering process and close distance to the school make it a good off campus lunch option nonetheless.

Overall: 4/5


Carter’s Review of Whataburger:

Whataburger is a Texas classic, and the one near McNeil brings a lot of that Texas hospitality. What students who opt for the drive thru don’t realize is that they’re missing out on a group of employees made up of some really enjoyable characters, including one man who came by our table twice to tell us jokes. Additionally, there’s a lot of space to eat in the restaurant and the prices are reasonable. Unfortunately, the food is nothing spectacular, knocking a point from its rating. But Whataburger is still very much worth a lunch visit and, to quote my personal favorite Whataburger employee, “What did the buffalo say to his son on the first day of school?… Bison.” Don’t miss out on this type of material.

Overall: 4/5
