Fast Food Feast: Whataburger's Green Chile Double

As if the Hatch Green Chile Fever that has gripped many burger joints in Houston hasn't spread enough, Whataburger has jumped on the bandwagon with their own Green Chile Double--available for the Dreaded Limited Time. They've also got Banana shakes and pies available for a limited time as well, if you're interested.

Whataburger Green Chile Double Blueprint:

2 all beef patties
American Cheese
Monterrey Jack Cheese
Roasted Hatch Green Chiles
On a white or wheat bun, or Texas Toast

In some ways the beauty of this burger is its simplicity. I know some folks would want to add mayonnaise, lettuce and tomato--and I nearly did--but I decided to try it as is and it was good. Whataburger's beef is NOT buttery Akaushi. It's probably ground chuck or sirloin, it's hot, chewy and slightly juicy; seasoned with salt and blck pepper. The cheese is standard fare--thoroughly melted and no surprises. The green chiles are a mix of mild herbal with occasional sparks of hot here and there. Nothing that'll knock you over but the spicy sparks are nice.

I will preface the grade by stating that I've been spoiled recently by some exceptional Hatch Green Chile Burgers. However I will also add that this burger is better than the usual Fast Food Burger.

The Foodie Professor grades Whataburger's Green Chile Double a B-.
