Meanwhile, enjoy the latest posts down below and make sure to “Like” That’s #SoAustin with the button below.

Five-Guys is better than both. Whataburger is pretty generic. And, In-N-Out is literally just a stale ass burger and fries with thousand island dressed and cubed fried onion..

I think the quality of food in In & Out is better. I think the quantity of food is better at Whataburger. That's what it all boils down to in my humble opinion. I'm from Detroit and we have neither establishments here in Michigan. So I traveled to Houston for Whataburger and LA for In&Out. My opinion is unbiased. Whataburger has more options and you get way more for your money. so if it's 2 in the morning and you're starving to death, Whataburger will get you right.

I love how fresh In n Out is. It’s the only fast food burger I’ve ever liked. Ever other place I’ve been to gets me sick after. I’ve never tried the Texas burger place but from the comments I’ve seen about it, it’s probably just going to give me a stomach ache so I’ll stick to In n Out.

Shiiiid reason why Texans heard about in n out in the first place is probably because of a movie OR perhaps they came here to our state and shot first. Me personally, never heard of them before. Until the news broke that they were coming to Austin. Anyway.. I told myself, I’m gonna give it a shot. Shoot I love burgers. So I went got me a burger from in and out and that was the last time I ordered one. Guess my tastebuds were so used of them full flavored burgers from whataburger. I’m not saying it’s gross.. it’s too bland for me. Anyway.. y’all need to try Dans and Burger Tex too. One of my fav joints that is long gone was Players. That was right next to University of Texas. That was a great burger joint. See now I’m being that #soaustin austinite. ✌🏽

Whata burger sold out and sold themselves out to a company is Chicago and from what people say their ingredients are different and not the same. In and out is way to popular they didn't sell out ;), menu has stayed the same since it opened and it's till Poppin!! and they be paying their employees good!! With benefits!!!
