      WHAT-A-BURGER #1... Pensacola, Florida... first store outside of Texas (Store #21) opened in Pensacola on August 8th, 1950 (five years before I was born)... however, today's burger bears little resemblance (in that the original bun was only five inches in diameter)...

      WHAT-A-BURGER opened in 1950 when Harmon Dobson opened Whataburger #1 in Corpus Christi, Texas. The tiny burger stand offered something people had never seen: a burger so big, they had to hold its five-inch bun with 2 hands. An instant success, Harmon began to expand the business to other markets. By the end of the decade, Harmon would open Whataburger #21 in Pensacola, FL. The first Whataburger outside of TX.

      I don't know how I inadvertently missed posting this 24 hours ago, but yesterday was Whataburger's 64th birthday. Yes, it was on August 8th, 1950 that Harmon Dobson opened this little 'ol burger stand ---- Whataburger # 1 ----- at 2609 Ayers street in Corpus Christi. The price of the original Whataburger was 25 cents and the stand took in fifty dollars on its first day of business. To paraphrase Bob Slydell in "Office Space," I celebrate their entire catalog.
