Think you’re committed to your favorite burger chain? Meet Karl and Carol Hoepfner. The husband-and-wife team have made it their mission to visit every single one of the 722 Whataburger locations in the United States. They’ve made through 225 of them and aren’t looking to slow down any time soon.

“I’ve been all over the world and it’s probably the best hamburger I’ve eaten,” said Karl, 75, who says he has visited the Whataburger near his Rockport, Texas home at least 7,000 times. “We eat every breakfast there and almost every lunch, although sometimes we go somewhere else for dinner.”

We have a whataburger in Mooresville and I think is sucks balls. I could much rather go to 5 Guys, which is my favorite, but I can't even rate whataburger above McDonald's or Burger King.

Maybe it's just the one in Mooresville cause they have a hell of a following.

Never even heard of whataburger.

It's like an old school drive-in. It's kinda like Sonic Drive-In but older and crappier.
