Whataburger is 65 years old. Yes, on Aug. 8, 1950, the first Whataburger opened in Corpus Christi. Thank goodness for Harmon Dobson and his white and orange A-frame.
From 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 8, Whata says "happy birthday to me" by offering free upgrades on Whatameals.
What this means: Order a Whataburger Jr. meal and get it bumped up to a medium, free. Order a regular meal and get a large, also free.
