Whataburger’s A.1. Thick & Hearty Burger Caps off the Perfect Alamo Bowl

A big game demands big flavor. That’s why Whataburger is excited that our limited-time offer, the A.1. Thick & Hearty Burger, is back on the menu, just in time for the Alamo Bowl. And you can even place your order ahead of time through the Whataburger App.

Our Pick the Teams winner is Joe Contreras and he’ll be able to enjoy A.1. Thick & Hearty Burgers for a year as he won Whataburger for 2019!

Just Like You Remember It

Full of flavor, this burger includes two 100 percent pure beef patties with grilled onions, crispy bacon and melted American cheese, topped with A.1. Thick & Hearty sauce. An All-Time Favorite menu item for nearly two decades, the A.1. Thick & Hearty Burger provides the perfect mixture of sweet and tangy flavors for a bold combination that’s hard to resist. You can order your A.1. Thick & Hearty Burger as a meal or a la carte. The burger also can be ordered as a junior version on a smaller bun.

The Tradition Behind the Burger

68 years ago, Whataburger’s adventurous founder, Harmon Dobson, opened up the world’s first Whataburger in Corpus Christi, Texas. He had one simple goal – he wanted 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 even made history by serving his burgers on a five-inch toasted bun (rather than the standard four-inch bun of the day). 68 years later, the A.1. Thick & Hearty Burger continues the tradition of delivering a hearty burger that’s packed with flavor.

Continuing to Innovate

Whataburger is also testing online ordering through their app in San Antonio, so you can even place your order before you leave the house, or as you leave the stadium. Here’s how it works:

  • It’s Yours: Customize and save your orders
  • It’s Easy: Get the meals you crave. Anytime, anywhere
  • It’s Rewarding: Earn free food after five visits (we’ll keep track)

Whether you’re stopping by for a pre-game meal, or hungry after the big game, he A.1. Thick & Hearty satisfies your savory craving, and the app makes it easy to order.
