Well if you get a chance, go, and start simply with ordering the #1 (just a darn good fast food burger).

Never had Whataburger but I have had 5 Guys (many, many times and it's oh so gooood). Never had an over grilled burger at 5 Guys either.

Smashburger around here is decent-- the Habit is even better.

I have been to Whataburger only once-- I tried the greenchile burger. Maybe I should have gone simpler.

I'll take an A-1 Burger, please, and do not tell me it's no on the menu because I know you can make it.
