Whataburger Vs. Whatta-Burger

The other day I was watching the classic movie “Coming To America” and even though I’ve seen the movie numerous times it’s still a favorite.  There was a scene in the movie where Cleo McDowell (John Amos) was explaining to Prince Hakeem (Eddie Murphy) and Semi (Arsenio Hall) the difference between his brand McDowell’s and McDonald’s.

Look… me and the McDonald’s people got this little misunderstanding. See, they’re McDonald’s… I’m McDowell’s. They got the Golden Arches, mine is the Golden Arcs. They got the Big Mac, I got the Big Mick. We both got two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles and onions, but their buns have sesame seeds. My buns have no seeds.

Well fast forward 29 years today and we have a similar situation with a well known hamburger place here in East Texas.

Whataburger has become one of my favorite spots in Texas. This wonderful establishment has been around for six decades sticking to the same formula that made them so popular – building a burger so big you can hold them with two hands and a taste so good you just gotta say “Whataburger”.  That is absolutely true their food is absolutely good, but what if I told you about ANOTHER burger place that carries the same name as “Whataburger”.

In Russelville Arksansas you can find the distant cousin of “Whataburger”, which is Feltner’s “Whatta-Burger”This establishment was created in 1967, when Mr. Feltner wanted to bring something new to the community. According to their website, Mr. Feltner sat in a chair on the side of the road counting cars, until he made a the decision to bring the community a home for great burgers. This place even has its own theme song so you know it’s established.
