The 36-foot-long food truck was created by San Antonio’s Cruising Kitchens, which specializes in mobile kitchens.

The revealing of the rolling Whataburger will be included in an episode of the Cruising Kitchens’ MotorTrends TV show, according to a news release.

It has 24 feet of cooking space and a 30,000-watt generator, “bringing the same kind of burger-making power as a brick-and-mortar restaurant,” a news release states.
