What I Ate: April 26, 2009 (Which Wich, Whataburger)

Spend the whole day looking at houses and driving across Austin and back in search of a particular floor plan by KB Home. We grabbed a quick lunch at Which Wich (Ste 205, 5000 W Slaughter Ln, Austin, TX‎ - (512) 282-430) which serves petite, but delicious, toasted sandwiches. I had a muffaletta.

We didn't get to eat dinner until late, and, by then, many of the restaurants in our area were closed. So we grabbed some produce that I thought I could fix a quick meal with when we passed a 24-hour Whataburger - a popular privately-held hamburger chain in Texas. I tried their Double Meat Whataburger in hopes that they would be the closest thing to In-N-Out. It wasn't close, but it wasn't bad. It comes with a lot of yellow mustard which I'll pass on next time and ask to see if they have mayo and ketchup.

  • I would have to disagree with you about In-n-Out vs. Whataburger. Just goes to show that everyone has different taste buds. For instance, there are people who love Taco Bell and others who detest it! :D Welcome to Austin btw!

  • If you're looking for something similar to In-n-Out, the closest we have is probably going to be P Terry's Burger Stand (www.pterrys.com) if you haven't had a chance to try it yet. They even do the fries in a similar fashion of fry only once. Personally, I prefer fries that have been blanched first then fried.

  • I definetly agree with memoria. Whataburger is so much more better than IN-N-OUT. Especially when you think of what type of meat is used. Texas beef is the best. california only has happy cows but that doesnt mean its quality.

  • Good grief, In-N-Out? Seriously? It can't begin to compete with Whataburger. At least Whataburger doesn't foist religion on people on all its products. And it has a much better menu. I can't eat potatoes, for instance, so In-N-Out was a huge waste of time for me. But Whataburger has onion rings and salad to go with my Whataburger. Or I can get grilled chicken. Or fish.

    In-N-Out is also a disgusting burger, with that BIg Mac Thousand Island dressing slathered on it.

    Actually, that's exactly what In-N-Out tastes like: McDonald's.

    Not a good comparison.
