As a vegetarian, I was first pretty skeptical of eating of Whataburger when I discovered it. What could a burger restaurant have to offer a vegetarian – especially if it didn’t have a veggie burger on the menu? My husband convinced me to try out this local fast food chain anyway, and I was surprised by how much I enjoyed my meal. I frequent Whataburger now, and I love going there. They have fresh, flavorful, and spicy food which I can enjoy.
My Signature Meal at Whataburger: Grilled Cheese with Peppers and Onions
As a longtime vegetarian, I’ve learned to be creative with what I can piece together on menus. This skill came in handy for me the first time I went to Whataburger, as I noticed grilled cheese on the menu. I was about to order it until I saw that you could add onions and peppers to anything at Whataburger, so I decided to order a grilled cheese with onions and peppers.
Whatabuger grilled cheese is delicious, and I love it with the onions, red bell peppers, and poblano peppers I ad to it for a spicy kick. Dipped in one of Whataburger’s special ketchups, this is the ultimate comfort food treat. If you don’t like spicy food, I recommend a plain grilled cheese sandwich – which is equally good.
My Favorite Healthy Choice: Garden Salad
I am the first to admit that salad at a fast food restaurant isn’t always the best option, but I love Whataburger’s garden salad. It’s packed with veggies and topped with a bit of cheese. The butter and garlic croutons that come with the salad are also delicious. Where Whataburger really shines is its salad dressings. I’m a big fan of their honey pepper vinaigrette dressing because it gives my salad a spicy Texas twist.
Delicious Fresh Fries and Onion Rings
For me, no Whataburger meal is complete without a side order of french fries or onion rings. While these items are standard fast food fare, I think they’re a little better at Whataburger than most places. Plus, Whatburger has its own delicious ketchup in both spicy and fancy varieties – making french fries and onion rings that much better.
Good Breakfast Options
Unlike some fast food restaurants, Whataburger has pretty good breakfast options for vegetarians. For something hearty with protein, I like the egg, potato, and cheese taquito. For more of an indulgence, I enjoy either a cinnamon roll or the pancakes. No matter what I order from Whataburger for breakfast, I also include an order of their tasty hash brown sticks.
Like most fast food restaurants, Whataburger has a few sweet treats to snack on. Their milkshakes are good, but I love their malts – especially the strawberry malt. Whatburger’s twist on pie is good, and I love the hot lemon pie. For a quick snack, you can’t go wrong with chocolate chip cookies and coffee.
