About This Quiz

McDonald's might have the Golden Arches, but Whataburger has the A-frame. In a countrywide fast food debate that centers on coastal chains like Shake Shack and In-N-Out Burger, it's easy for one of the game's biggest players to be left out of the competition. But anyone who lives in one of the 10 southern states that have a beloved Whataburger franchise will roll their eyes and "Bless your heart" for omitting the clear winner of the burger battles.

Before we ride through the drive-thru, it's time to take a little spin through the history of this famed establishment. Founded in Corpus Christi, TX in 1950, Whataburger hit the scene selling 25-cent burgers good enough to make you take a bite and exclaim: "What a burger!" Texans fell in love, and it has been a wonderful relationship ever since. The iconic buildings sport A-frame roofs in striped orange and white. With most locations operating 24-hours a day, such a site can become a sanctuary for weary travelers or night-owl college students looking for a hearty Patty Melt after a long day. 

But although the Lone Star State is the home of the Whataburger, Whatachick'n and all the glorious variations to emerge, the chain has found its way to other states in the south, ranging from Arizona to Florida. So step up to the plate and state your order. Mayo or mustard? Texas toast or large bun? We can probably tell what Southern state you're from based on your response.
