That's funny, I only know of one substandard Whataburger outlet (downtown Albuquerque), and I've eaten them all across Texas and New Mexico -- their consistency is one of my favorite things about them, actually!

    I live near Houston and Whataburger is by far the best of the chain burger joints. Unless you're expecting a burger to be delivered to you before you get your change (yanked from under a heat lamp) you really can't go wrong.

      If you're reffering to the Whataburger that was on Lomas and 5th downtown Alb., it's been torn down...there are three new courthouses right in a 2 block area there now. A decent Whataburger locale is a few blocks north of I-40 on 2nd St. and Menual about 5-6 mins from downtown, and they still dish out very well made burgers. However if you're conventioning in downtown Alb., I highly recommend a trip north on 4th street to Bob's Burgers and the other small local joints sprinkled up and down that street. The further north one goes on 4th from downtown...the better the eats seem to be

        Culminating, of course, at the grand El Pinto. I miss that place.

        I knew that Whataburger was slated for demolition -- one of the courthouses was already open when I left ABQ, and the others were almost completed. Still, absolutely no great loss. If I was in the mood for a Whataburger after a gig at the Golden West or the late, lamented Dingo, I usually just went up to the one on Carlisle across from the Wal-Mart, between Menaul and Montgomery, or if I felt like a drive, the newer one just off I-25 at Montano.

        But usually I just went to the Frontier.

          2 cents


          Green Chile, I periodically travel to Albuquerque for work, and Bob's sounds like a place I might want to try. How does their green chile cheeseburger compare to the ones served at the 66 Diner and the Bobcat Bite? Do they serve anything else of note?

          Can anyone else give me the 411 on Bob's?

            Haven't had the pleasure of trying Bobcat Bite's GCC but the pictures sure make it look awesome. Bob's GCC is more unique than most, because they use a green chile sauce, and it is not (dummed down). It makes for some sloppy eatin, but when it's this good no one seems to mind. Also on the menu, is the taco or tortilla burger, I forget which it's called but it's tasty as well. Grilled split dogs on grilled buns covered in red or green are the standard chile dogs there, and mighty good to boot. I typically order extra green chile on everything there as they can be skimpy with it depending on who's minding the kitchen. Their fries leave me disappointed....to soggy, and the shakes are sub-par. They used to make orange-whips, which was something similar to an orange julius only better...sadly they stopped making those. All in all an awesome Green Chile Cheeseburger joint. I typically stop at a Sonic for a Route 44 cherry coke, then head over to Bob's for my GCC fix. Hope yah get a chance to try one.
