Sometimes there’s nothing as satisfying as munching down on a large, juicy burger. A burger with french fries and a soft drink is about as classic of an American meal as it gets. And while there are a number of burger chains spread throughout the Valley, one growing, Texas-based burger chain is opening not just one, but two new restaurants in metro Phoenix. 

Whataburger opened its first restaurant along the Gulf of Mexico in Corpus Christi, Texas back in 1950. This makes the burger chain older than Mcdonald's (which opened in California five years later), four years older than Burger King (which opened in Florida in 1954), and significantly older than Wendy’s (which opened in 1969 in Columbus, Ohio). Despite launching earlier than the other major burger chains in the country, Whataburger did not begin to expand its brand until years later. But now, the restaurant has nearly 900 units located primarily in the Southeastern and Southwestern United States (although there are a handful of restaurants that have popped in in northern states). 

The first of two new Whataburger restaurants to open in metro Phoenix is located in southern Chandler, right on the corner of Queen Creek and Gilbert. The 3077 East Queen Creek Road location is just around the corner from the Inspire Kids Montessori Layton Lakes school as well as the Legacy Traditional School of Chandler. The dine-in portion of the restaurant is open seven days a week, 6 AM until 12 AM, although the drive-through is open 24 hours a day, so no matter the time, you can always stop by for a freshly made burger (online ordering is not yet available for this new location, although it should be made available in the coming weeks). 

The second new location will be in Gilbert and is set to open later in the year. However, an official address and opening date have not yet been made available, although that information should be forthcoming. 

For anyone that has not yet been to one of the Whataburger locations in metro Phoenix, there are a number of menu options to choose from. There are several burgers, including the Southern Bacon Double, the Whataburger, the Triple Meat Whataburger, and the Avocado Bacon Burger. Chicken sandwiches include the Southern Bacon Grilled Chicken Sandwich, the Watachick’n Sandwich, and chicken strips, plus several fish sandwiches, salads, drinks, shakes, sides, and a menu just for kids. 

The new Chandler Whataburger location is now open and ready to serve.
