-Whataburger is a Texas insitution! It is beloved by so many Texans, that is was declared our stately equivalent of a national treasure, a Texas Treasure, by the 77th Texas Legislature. It is know by most Texans that Whataburger has a presence in “friendly states”, and Oklahoma. Whataburger’s main stronghold is in the South. Maintaining a presence from Airzona to Florida.  However what most Texans probably don’t know is that Whataburger had a presence in Southern California from the Mid 70’s (~1973) until 1987.

All of the locations were franchised however, it’s unclear if it may have been a single franchisee who ran all the locations. A 7th location was planned for Camarillo, CA. However I have been unable to find an address for it. It’s possible that it never ended up opening.
