There are Whataburger restaurants dotted all across the Lone Star State, but cross Mexican border and the ubiquitous burger chain disappears. Although, that doesn’t mean their influence hasn’t reached south of the border.
If you head south of McAllen, Texas to the border city of Reynosa, you may stumble upon Weroburger, a roadside eatery that’s, shall we say, heavily inspired by Whataburger.
According to Mysanantonio.com, the small restaurant first gained attention online last May after Brian Hernandez tweeted this photo.
Weroburger sports the same orange and white stripes, a-frame logo and font type as Whataburger. I don’t think Whataburger is going to knock on their door with trademark infringement anytime soon.
So what does this Whataburger inspired joint serve? Their facebook page shows tortas, tacos, burgers and hot dogs complete with sides of beans and salsa.
This isn’t the first Whataburger knock-off we’ve seen. North and South Carolina have a chain called What-A-Burger. Outside of Texas, Whataburger has locations in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico and Oklahoma.
