Let’s get a couple things straight. Texans take their burgers seriously. While there are many great options in the DFW to grab a delicious burger, we all have our go-to. The hot topic of this week is Five Guys and In-N-Out. Why? Because according to the Harris Poll released this week, Americans favor Five Guys more. The second thing we need to clear up is that this is of no importance to true Texans as neither Five Guys nor In-N-Out have ever fully ruled the metroplex because Whataburger exists.
We get it. Every burger is different and every burger has its own special touch. Even if Five Guys are great burgers, which they are, there’s nothing like Whataburger. Anyway, the only reason Texans should be particularly offended here is because of where Whataburger falls in this “poll” that was taken. See below for evidence:
Number six…Whataburger…. really? We just can’t comprehend the fact that Wendy’s is even remotely close to Shake Shack to begin with. But Texans aren’t the only ones offended by this poll. Californians (of course) are upset their beloved burger fell off the number one spot.
According to Business Insider, Five Guys has been expanding increasingly and in 2013, 48% of respondents were familiar with Five Guys, according to The Harris Poll. Today, that figure is 68%, with Five Guys reaching 81% familiarity among Generation Z and millennials.
We’re still upset about Whataburger though. It’s kind of offensive, too. How could you say no to this?
Thanks for the info Harris Poll, but you can keep it.
