Driver goes to great lengths to get Whataburger, barrels over retaining wall

Reddit post goes viral


SAN ANTONIO – A GIF of a driver barreling over a retaining wall to get to a Whataburger was posted to an Austin subreddit over the weekend, but Reddit users soon realized the post didn't belong in the Austin thread, rather San Antonio.

Cyber sleuths were able to identify the Whataburger in the hilarious GIF as the restaurant on Highway 281 and Evans Road.

Other Reddit users joked the GIF should be used for promotional purposes "to show what customers are willing to do to get in line for their whatafix."

Restaurant managers could not speak on the issue. Corporate communications for Whataburger did not immediately return a request for comment Monday afternoon.
