Who doesn’t love a great burger? Another Whataburger restaurant has opened in Humble with everyone’s favorite hamburgers. The grand opening of the newest Whataburger at 18004 Hwy. 59 on Nov. 3 was a great success, highlighted with a photo booth and special appearances from Whataburger’s mascot, Whataguy, and founder Harmon Dobson’s daughter Lynn Dobson. Guests were treated to an evening of games and giveaways, including the restaurant’s popular “Whataburger for a Year” drawing, where one customer’s name was drawn for the grand prize: a free Whataburger each week for an entire year. Olivia Rendon was the lucky winner of the “Whataburger for a Year” raffle.
The guests at this new location were duly wowed. The new restaurant’s design elements and upgrades, interior and exterior LED lighting, two drive-thru lanes and state-of-the-art kitchen equipment were unveiled. This “Humble” location is a far cry from their “humble” beginnings in Corpus Christi as a single burger stand in 1950. Now 66 years later, there are more than 780 restaurants across 10 states today. Many folks in Houston and Corpus Christi still remember country music legend Mel Tillis as the company spokesperson through the ‘80s and had the opportunity to watch him perform at many grand openings in Texas. Stop in soon and be sure to comment, “What a burger,” when biting into their signature burger that’s so big it takes two hands to hold. For information, visit whataburger.com/company.
