"Ew, Whataburger is literally disgusting."
That's what I was told when I said to a friend that Whataburger is better than In-N-Out. But unfortunately, they're the ones in the wrong and not me.
Sure In-N-Out is good if you want a burger and fries, but that's literally all you can get if you go to In-N-Out... a burger and fries. At the beloved Whataburger there are so many options. You have burgers, chicken sandwiches, chicken strips and nuggets, salads, a whole breakfast menu and deserts other than just a milkshake. In-N-Out to me just isn't very good. Now, I also don't like burgers. I did give a burger a chance though and it just didn't please me. Sure you can get cheese fries or "Animal Style", but that's about the only variety they have unless you order off the secret menu. You don't have the other endless options that Whataburger does.
Can you get any form of chicken from In-N-Out? No.
Can you get a salad? No.
A cinnamon roll or hash brown sticks? No.
Can you get anything BUT a hamburger from In-N-Out? No.
But let me also take a minute to brag on the Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit. This delicious dish is a part of the breakfast menu that goes on from 11 PM to 11 AM. The Honey Butter Chicken Biscuit, AKA a HBCB, is a chicken strip topped with oh-so scrumptious honey butter sauce in-between a light, fluffy, buttery biscuit. It's ooey gooey goodness that just melts in your mouth. This meal especially hits the spot at about 12-1 in the morning.
So if you ask me, the answer is simple. Whataburger IS in fact better than In-N-Out. Maybe it's because these West Coast folks have never gotten a taste of something from the south, but I guarantee once you try, you'll never turn back.
