So for years we saw commercials for Whataburger during Big 12 sports games. On our trip to Austin, shortly after completing a 5k race, we gave it a try since it was within walking distance. Everything tastes great after a race, right? But the food was very fresh and tasty, burgers and fries. We ordered at the window and our... More

Fast fast food that tastes fine. Better than McDonald's in my opinion, but not as good as In N Out. Our order was a little wrong when delivered to our table. I had asked for onion rings instead of fries, but got fries. Took my receipt to the counter and got onion rings and they let me keep the fries.

So I did and I was very pleased with the quality of the food and level of service. My only bad decision was ordering the Patty Melt rather than the single Cheeseburger with Bacon, it was more food than I wanted to eat, but YES I finished it all and then ran 4 miles to burn it off.

Had beacon and cheese burger, strawberry milkshake, and onion rings. The service was reasonable, I didn't have to wait for too long. The burger was OK, nothing memorable. The milkshake was not thoroughly blended: the center of the cup still contains a big chunk of base (white) milkshake. The onion ring was not too oily. Basically, don't expect too much... More

Perfect location for this business. Near Town Lake and downtown. Open 24 hours and good business all day and night. Good for a burger after a show or downtown bar hopping or for getting food after seeing a show or performance. Easy access. Good parking.

The prices are really reasonable, the food is tasty, and the location is convenient to major roads like Barton Springs (route to Zilker Park and Barton Springs Pool) and South First (major route to and from downtown Austin and Lady Bird Lake). Toss in the usual rotating shift of local characters that like to frequent this location, and it's a... More

Waited in the drive-thru for what seemed like a half hour, with the car in front of us losing patience and driving off. Finally we get our food, take it home, and it's cold. Wasn't all that impressed.

This was just another Whataburger stop. Food is always the same, and the folks are pretty much the same. Here, they were a tad slow even by Whataburger standards. I guess the one really good thing about it is you can count on things being the same when you travel. We were just short on time enough we didn't want... More

This Food Fan can say with absolute conviction that the Whataburger fast food franchise is the most disappointing eating experience in the greater Austin, Texas area.  The Barton Springs location offered overcooked chicken nuggets, ants and sticky tables.  The Cedar Park/Cypress Springs locale fared no better, with the drive-through service offering up a frustrating chaos in prolonged miscommunication that ended...
