Whataburger may be the most popular fast food chain in Texas, but not everyone pronounces its name the same way.

While some say the name as it’s spelled, “what-a-burger,” others let their southern drawl take over, calling it “water-burger.” Now, the Texas-based chain has put an end to the debate, revealing its correct pronunciation.

Last week, Whataburger took to social media to finally explain how to properly pronounce their name. “It’s pronounced “WAT-ER-BRR-GRRR,” the fast food chain said in their now viral tweet. Of course, many chimed in with their own opinions, though they were quickly shut down by those that have been saying it correctly for years.

According to CW33, Whataburger also used social media recently to tease the return of a popular menu item. While no date was announced the chain promised “the Chili Cheese Burger will come back some day.” Whoever is running the Whataburger social media accounts clearly know how to get fans worked up.
