Whataburger is a Texas institution, and we simply can’t get enough of their hilarious Twitter jokes, their chorizo burgers, or photo shoots of toddlers covered in Spicy Ketchup. While false information stated that In-N-Out is a Texan’s favorite burger joint recently, everyone knows that Whataburger is obviously the right choice. And if Whataburger was available in every state, we bet it’d be the favored burger nationwide.
In June, we found a fake news article entitled, “Is Whataburger Coming to Wichita?” circling the internet. Many excited Kansans immediately latched onto it, and hoped that that orange W would finally land in their own state. After all, they’re almost neighbors to Texas. However, after Denise Neil at The Wichita Eagle dug into the report, she found that it was only a cruel joke and a false advertisement that promptly crushed the hearts of Kansans waiting with bated breath.
Now, though, we’re wondering Whataburger’s plans with the great state of Kansas after a few mysterious tweets surfaced in the past week. Twitter user MattfromKC was followed by Whataburger and this fateful exchange occurred.
Kansans seriously jumped on this single question, with over 121 replies and over 1,600 likes. Whataburger, stop toying with Kansans already!
Here are some of the best responses, including those petitioning for a Manhattan Whataburger. Can you imagine those city slickers chowing down on a honey butter chicken biscuit for the first time?
It seems like Kansans have spoken, and they desperately need Spicy Ketchup and taquitos in their lives, like yesterday. So Whataburger, the ball is in your court!
Which state do you think will see the next Whataburger? There are 14 locations in Alabama, 25 in Arizona, 5 in Arkansas, 38 in Florida, one in Georgia, 15 in Louisiana, eight in Mississippi, 11 in New Mexico, 33 in Oklahoma, and a whopping 669 locations in Texas. It doesn’t get any bigger than the Lone Star State, y’all.
I had no idea that Florida had the second-most Whataburgers in the country, and knowing that, it now makes sense why Buc-ee’s chose the Sunshine State for its first few out-of-Texas locations.
