What Austin is saying about new hybrid Whataburger and H-E-B

Once Austinites heard about a new H-E-B store opening featuring a 24-hour Whataburger drive-through, they had some spirited things to say. The new store will be located at 5000 Gattis School Road in Hutto. With the state’s dominant grocery store stocking Whataburger-branded items such as ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise, jalapeño ranch, pork sausage and “Whatafries,” the team-up represents a new step in the relationship between these two Texas food giants.

The love for the orange and white extends beyond Texas. Compared to other food chains, Whataburger is better than In-N-Out and Shake Shack, according to BuzzFeed.
