I ordered a double Burger at the Sun's arena during the event. It smelled terrific. It had charcoal flavor. It was loaded with a lot of lettuce, strips of bacon, cheese and mayo. It was enormous! It was quite greasy going down the hatch but tasty. If you don't mind the calories and the grease then this burger is for... More

Late night visit well worth the trip (even though it brought us nearly back into the downtown area we had just left). Great taste that is not available back in upstate South Carolina.

I do not eat here that often but a few times a year I crave a Whataburger. Having one downtown is a good deal for me since I was in the mood for a green chili cheeseburger, with onion rings (a side of mustard) and a vanilla shake. The server was polite and the food was wonderful as always. They... More

I grew up with Whataburger in Texas and was pleased to see that Arizona is also welcoming one of the best burger places on the planet into their midst. The burgers are moist and made-to-order. The patties are pure beef. You can customize your burger any way you want it, and the ketchup is slap-yo-momma good!

I have passed by Whataburger for many years and never tried it, even though my fiancé talked about how great it was. Well I finally tried it and have had it twice now. The first time I had it, it did not disappoint and was soooo good. It tasted comparable to an In and Out Burger, Although they are twice... More

Our family had never eaten at a Whataburger so when I ordered I asked the man taking my order, Tran,mother manager, what he recommended and he said the patty melt. He did not disappoint. He went out of his way to make sure we enjoyed our first visit there.

We stopped at the Whataburger in Mesa, AZ. I had never heard of them (live in Kansas). The burgers are soooo good that we have already been back to Whataburger a second time. And I am sure we will go back again soon. They also have a spicey ketchup that you should try....very tasty.

Giant burgers which are good but not exceptionally great. Expect to pay about $7 a person for a combo. I think I will stick to In N Out

I had my first Whataburger about 50 years ago and my last one 2 days ago. The quality and price has always been excellent. To me it never tasted like fast food. Now there all these other burger places with their $5 - $10 "gourmet" burgers. I'll take my reasonably priced, delicious Whataburger any day. The staff has always been... More
