It’s unclear if Cashell was the one who put the “double sweet” note and Jalapeno label on the sweet tea dispenser, but the Jan. 11 tweet captured the heart of Whataburger fans and ended up on Reddit’s r/Austin subreddit.
The meme he’s riffing on is a popular one on Twitter lately. The “you vs. the guy she tells you not to worry about” joke involves comparing an inferior product or person on the left (“you”) to a supposed upgrade (“the guy she tells you not to worry about”) on the right.
If Notre Dame was hounding after that win as much as their double-overtime push indicated, then, the Texas chain suggested, they could still get one by stopping by the orange-and-white on their way out.
Notre Dame can still get a win by stopping by Whataburger on the way out of Texas
It’s bigger than Drake and Meek Mill. It’s bigger than a triple meat, triple cheese. And, according to Trinity University student Isaiah Specks, it’s definitely bigger than whatever you’re ordering at In-N-Out.
Specks took to Twitter to profess his loyalty to the orange and white in a minute-long rap addressing the “Whataburger or In-N-Out?” question that doesn’t take most Texans too long to answer.
Part of Twitter’s #SoGoneChallenge trend, where participants rap and sing to the beat of Monica’s 2003 “So Gone,” Specks begins, “Whataburger is way better than In-N-Out,” calling In-N-Out’s burger “a snack.”
Specks also asserts that other states’ dismissal of Whataburger stems only from jealousy. If you disagree with Specks he simply suggests that you, “Go get you a honey-butter chicken biscuit.” The proof is in the honey-butter.
The rap has been retweeted upward of 6,000 times. Looks like Specks is a clear winner in the #SoGoneChallenge.
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?
A recent post on Guide Live about the “14 smells that are so quintessentially Dallas” got us thinking about what smells were so quintessentially Austin. What gets your olfactory system going when you’re out and about in the city? Do any of these come to mind (nose)? Take a deep breath, and let us know.
Coffee beans roasting at Mozart’s. What smells almost like burnt sugar, but slightly more acrid, a waft of Mozart’s during roasting hours is just as effective at waking you up during a study session as an actual cup of coffee.
Car exhaust. If there’s a smell that Dallas, Austin and maybe every other major Texas city share, it’s car exhaust during a 5 p.m./8 a.m./8 a.m.-8 p.m. rush hour. Breathe deep and take your hand off that horn.
Whataburger fiends, we’ve got some bad news. Unless your name is Blake Miller and you live in Corpus Christi, you didn’t win the burger chain’s lucrative Snapchat giveaway.
According to the Corpus Christi Caller Times, Miller will receive $3,000 in Whataburger gift cards as a prize for his creative Whataburger tattoo. His domination of the competition was announced by Whataburger Wednesday.

Miller got a tattoo of the numbers “361” on a Whataburger order tent. 361 is Corpus Christi’s area code, and Corpus Christi is home to the very first Whataburger.
The funny thing is, he said got the tattoo the day before the contest was announced.
“I got it because the first Whataburger was in Corpus, and I figured since I lived around here in this area code I would put it on there,” Miller told the Caller Times. “It’s home.”
But just because that contest is over doesn’t mean the web-savvy fast food restaurant is stopping all of its promotions. If you’re in high school, Whataburger will take you to prom in a limo and provide you with dinner if you win its new #WhataProm contest.
For those who just can’t get enough Whataburger in their lives, fear not. The Texas-based burger chain is now on Snapchat and it’s giving away a decade of food to celebrate.
Just search for WhataburgerLife on Snapchat and then you’ll be able to find out how you can get a free Whataburger each week for 10 years. (Or you can just read about it here.) Only one person will win the coveted culinary prize. (There’s no word yet on if Whataburger will also pay for any hospital stays those burgers might cause.)
The company’s social media presence is one of the best in the restaurant industry, and the company has been great at starting Twitter wars with other brands and famous people. It was only a matter of time before the Whataburger #brand came to Snapchat.
“Whataburger’s launch into Snapchat will allow us to entertain fans, showcase the Whataburger lifestyle and, of course, highlight our delicious food,” Pam Cox, Whataburger’s vice president of corporate communications, said in the news release. “We’ve seen how popular Snapchat is among our Millennial customers, and think this social platform gives us a great chance to interact with more fans in fun, new ways.”
Whataburger recently announced that it would be bringing French fry pedicabs to South by Southwest, to the delight of late-night festgoers. If you already loved Whataburger, it seems your list of possible reasons keeps growing by the week.
