Turns out you don’t even need to open your eyes to enjoy a Whataburger.

Texas Monthly recently held a “highly unscientific blind taste test” to determine how the Texas favorite held up against four other popular chain burgers. Are you surprised that Whataburger came out on top with five out of 11 first place votes, or is it as obvious to you as the choice between spicy and regular ketchup?

According to testers, Smashburger, In-N-Out, Shake Shack and Five Guys don’t really hold up when stacked alongside a Whataburger, which scored 46 out of 55 points and was ranked first the most times.

Texans have spoken, and they’re saying “Whataburger forever, y’all.”
