DFW AIRPORT, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – It’s open.
DFW Airport’s first Whataburger held its grand opening Wednesday, July 3 and the place was packed.
Whataburger shared a photo of its first customer at the new location.
The airport announced last August it was adding the Texas favorite to its lineup of restaurants in Terminal E.
At the time of the announcement, here’s what Whataburger said in a statement:
“We absolutely love hearing from so many fans traveling through DFW International Airport and are excited about the opportunity to cure their cravings. There are a number of factors that go into our decision to build a restaurant in any location, and this vote is one of several steps needed to move forward. At this time, no plans have been finalized. In the meantime, we encourage fans to visit us at any of our area restaurants for their favorite Whataburger meal 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”
Dallas Love Field has a Whataburger as well.
Last month, the iconic Texas-based fast food chain sold its majority ownership to an investment firm, BDT Capital Partners, LLC, in Chicago.
The company’s headquarters is expected to stay in San Antonio.
