Whataburger Gets Spicy With New Green Chile Double Burger

Food August 29, 2011

(AUGUST 29, 2011 - SAN ANTONIO) - After an overwhelmingly positive customer response last year during a regional launch, Whataburger is introducing its Green Chile Double burger system wide, at all of its 700-plus locations for a limited time. This new burger will be available at 3 pm on August 29 through October 3.

Just in time for fresh chile season, the Whataburger Green Chile Double is everything Whataburger customers love - double meat and double cheese - with a kick. The burger is served with two 100 percent fresh, never-frozen, American beef patties grilled to perfection, a slice of Monterey Jack cheese and a slice of American cheese, all topped with roasted green chiles and served on the famous toasted five-inch Whataburger bun.

Rolled out for the first time in Arizona, New Mexico and select Texas cities in 2010, the Green Chile Double got rave reviews, including one from the Phoenix New Times, who said about the burger: "The roasted green chiles brought a nice, mildly spicy flavor to the beef patties and the slices of American and Monterey Jack cheese made themselves known in a satisfying yet subtle way."

The Green Chile Double is also available in a junior size and can be purchased in a Whatameal including a drink and French fries. For a small charge, customers can substitute a side salad for fries in their Whatameal.

Within the first week, people lined up around the block for his 25 cent, all-American beef burgers served on five-inch buns.
