What is it with Texas's obsession with Whataburger? We invite you to simply take one bite of this classic American creation to answer that query. What is it with Corpus Christi's obsession with Whataburger? We're glad you asked. Whataburger was founded here in 1950 and the growing burger chain is still owned by the same family. While this particular location is not the site of the first, it is the only two-story Whataburger on the planet and features an open deck with some of the best seats in the house to bay watch. Pro tip: Make sure you sit for a portrait/selfie on the bench with the smiling bronze statue of founder Harmon Dobson, who apparently was a stogie-smokin' son-of-a-gun, as evidenced by a pocket full of cigars.
