On Aug. 8, 1950, Whataburger’s adventurous founder, Harmon Dobson, opened up the world’s first Whataburger in Corpus Christi, Texas. He had a simple goal: to serve a burger so big it took two hands to hold and so good that with one bite customers would say, “What a burger!” He succeeded on both counts and turned that one little burger stand into a legend loved throughout Texas and the South.
While a lot has changed in the past 66 years, Whataburger continues to uphold Harmon’s commitment to customers. In fact, Whataburger recently launched their new, free mobile app designed to provide customers added benefits and convenience each time they grab their favorite menu items.

Free rewards: The app gives customers one free reward for every five visits to a Whataburger restaurant. Rewards include a free Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit, any variation of a Taquito with Cheese – both served during late-night and breakfast hours from 11 p.m. to 11 a.m. – a medium order of French Fries, Cinnamon Roll or any flavor of a small, 16-ounce Shake.
Convenient payment system: The Whataburger app’s convenient mobile payment system allows users to upload a debit/credit card, PayPal, Apple Pay or Whataburger gift card to their account in any amount from $15 to $220. Customers with an account can reload funds when needed, manage their payment options and pay for their Whataburger order – all within the app.
Information at your fingertips: Additional app features include quick access to Whataburger’s full menu along with nutrition and allergen information, a restaurant locator and guided tutorials. Users can sign up using Facebook, Google Plus or their email address. While registering to view the app isn’t required, some features are limited to registered users.
The Whataburger app is available for free on Google and Apple devices, and customers are encouraged to download the app on their smartphone through Apple’s App Store or Google Play to begin receiving rewards for each visit. Users can visit Whataburger.com for tutorial videos on using the app, and assistance is available within the app by tapping on the Help icon in the My Dashboard section or by tapping More, then Help.
