In honor of what would have been founder Harmon Dobson's 100th birthday, Whataburger announced a promotion for October 8 from 5 to 8 p.m. featuring $1 Whataburgers for dine-in customers. The promotion is run through the brand’s Facebook page where customers can claim the offer, have it sent to their email, and redeem at any Whataburger location. Airport locations are excluded from this offer.

“When Harmon Dobson opened the first Whataburger in 1950, his vision was to create a burger so good customers couldn’t help but exclaim, ‘What a burger!’” says Whataburger Group director of corporate communications Pam Cox. “Today would have marked Harmon’s 100th birthday and we’re celebrating by offering the original Whataburger for just $1 plus tax as a thank you to our customers for making Harmon’s vision a reality.”

The family-owned chain is headquartered in San Antonio and operates more than 750 restaurants across 10 states today.
