As a Texan, I can say with confidence that when it comes to burgers, BBQ, and grilled meats, we don't mess around. However, when analyzing a burger, many factors come into play — the condiments, freshness of the vegetables, and bun are all extremely important considerations.
Last fall, I taste tested the difference between these two chains in Dallas, Texas, where an In-N-Out and Whataburger live in harmony on the same block. Here's who I thought had a better burger.
My first stop was Whataburger. The building is outlined in a classic orange trimming, making it hard to miss when you're cruising down a Texas highway at 80 mph.
Southern hospitality is alive and well inside a Whataburger. Even when ordering to go, you get a table number so that a friendly staff member can hand-deliver your food to you. There's no confusing name or number-calling here.
They have a variety of Tex-Mex inspired sauces to choose from for your fries or burger, including spicy ketchup, picante sauce, and salsa verde.
