Blue Chz for wings.Ketchup isn’t even allowed in my house. I once found some Whataburger ketchup my wife had hidden and we had a long talk. We compromised on cocktail sauce when she eats shrimp.
Mayo is for potato salad and a sandwich if you don’t have vegetables to combat the dryness.
Ranch is tolerable with wings and that’s it but wings shouldn’t need anything. Ditto pizza, wtf.
Horseradish is the condiment of kings.
Sorry but ketchup and mayo are the food of the Gods.This is the best politics thread since I joined this site, it's not really close. I am not a mayo fan, typically like ketchup mustard combo, probably due to my midwest genes. Started doing more just mustard burgers here and there.
What the hell is catsup?As I wrote in this or another thread, my favorite at Whataburger is their breakfast offerings. Pancake platter is an excellent choice. Wish they would go all day on breakfast.
I wonder if the mustard vs. mayo/catsup is a generational thing because of the influence of McDonalds as kids for the younger generations. The closest thing to a chain in my youth was Dairy Queen and those hamburgers definitely had mustard.
@jhablinski - I’ve noticed that my local Austin-area Whataburgers don’t melt the cheese on the burgers anymore unless I specifically ask for it. It may sound petty, but to me it’s damn near unAmerican to serve a cheeseburger with cold cheese on it. As a franchisee, please tell me that unmelted cheese at your restaurants is a fireable offense.Interesting times.
Not sure what it looks like for us.
My dad lived off 36th, so real close to the one on 45th. Solid stuff, like an old burger joint.In Seattle there is a small chain called Dick's that puts housemade tartar sauce on the burgers. Surprisingly good. This coming from someone who normally orders burgers with no sauce and then adds mustard when not at Whataburger or DQ.
Ketchup. They are different spellings of the same thing. Supposedly catsup was the original spelling and Heinz changed it to ketchup on their bottles as a marketing strategy. My slip-up is likely a sign of my age as that's how I learned to spell it as a kid.What the hell is catsup?
LOL. Just messing with you. My wife actually pronounces it “catch-up” and it drives me nuts. But she also says “arnge” for orange and “an-Tanna” for antenna so I think it’s her problem.Ketchup.

I’ve never been more disappointed in a burger chain than In & Out. I only go there when the line is too long at Whataburger.
They’re in Dallas and Austin.
I've been here in Nor Cal 20 years. Their burgers are good but only Animal Style: mustard basted\infused patty, but no spread (thousand island dressing is a burger abomination)They’re in Dallas and Austin.
Years ago I figured they’d do battle in Phoenix with In N Out coming from the west and W from Texas.
Back when I drove I-10 a lot I’d make sure and get W in Las Cruces, my last option.
I grew up in CA where In N Out was king (only in SoCal at the time) and had a shirt which had the appeal and popularity of a Hard Rock shirt (weird people we are) at one point but it isn’t as good. I feel I’m the definitive voice.
W was our first meal in Texas so there is some sentimentality.
I like them both but prefer Whataburger.
Me, too. They're just not all that great. When I went to my first one in Santa Barbara, I was like, what's so special about this joint? Meh. Whataburger rules.I’ve never been more disappointed in a burger chain than In & Out. I only go there when the line is too long at Whataburger.
Exactly. That sounds nasty. I don't even like tartar sauce on fried seafood. Well, at least if it's not the stuff that King's Inn makes. That greatness isn't like traditional tartar sauce at all, it's more like baked artichoke dip without the artichokes. It's freakishly delicious.That's just wrong in so many ways.
They’ve been here more than a decade.
Yes the cheese is melted@jhablinski - I’ve noticed that my local Austin-area Whataburgers don’t melt the cheese on the burgers anymore unless I specifically ask for it.

Some of these taste preferences seem to be regional. Mayo should never be put on a hamburger or hotdog, imo.As a native Texan, I find it odd to put mayo or catsup on a burger or hot dog. This is why there are so few nationwide fast food chains or even to expand beyond a small region.
I think you’re right. I don’t see the standard Whataburger mustard style becoming very popular in CA.I'm betting the new owners try to expand Whataburger out of state. Don't think it will work. Different places have different tasters. I love Carl's Jr, but for whatever reason they didn't work out here in Texas.
Would go to that one pretty regularly after church. We lived in Northgate so went to that one mostly. I also go at least once whenever I am back there. I also like the hot fudge sundaes cause they use real hot fudge not chocolate sauce.My dad lived off 36th, so real close to the one on 45th. Solid stuff, like an old burger joint.
Real mayo sucks. It's all about that tangy zip of Miracle Whip.There is very little that I will eat with mayo other than it mixed in something like tuna salad. I can tolerate it on a ham sandwich as long as there isn't much. Can tolerate ketchup even less. That's for french fries.
