Reply Brian March 29th, 2010 I had never even heard of Whataburger until two weeks ago when I was in Phoenix and tried it there. It was average, but I still gave it the nod over Domino’s (the old Domino’s, I haven’t tried their new pizza yet). Reply Nancy March 29th, 2010 Domino’s any day of the week,, still need to try new pizza at domino’s! Reply Adam March 29th, 2010 I work for Domino’s, so only right to vote for them. Reply nick March 29th, 2010 not sure its really fair to put dominos, a nationwide chain, up against whataburger which is based out of Texas and is only found in the south and southwest. Most northerners have probably never heard of Whataburger. Reply ambola March 30th, 2010 dominos pizza have great pizza Reply Matt McFarland March 30th, 2010 Dominos FTW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Reply Mary Carriker March 30th, 2010 whataburger rocks Reply Jennifer March 30th, 2010 Even though I work for WB corp. I still would rather have Whataburger any day over Dominos card board cheap sauce pizza! Reply shatraw March 30th, 2010 @nick – yeah, but we’ve already seen this sort of thing in the seeding before (arbys defeats in-n-out in the most offensive affront to good taste ever?). not much that can happen. some fast food markets are just smaller than others. Reply Blue in Texas March 30th, 2010 Don’t Mess with Texas! Whataburger Rules! Reply perry March 30th, 2010 Domino’s gives me severe diahrrea. I’ll stick to Whataburger Reply Eric Webber March 30th, 2010 A limited selection of very average pizza, vs. a freshly made burger that you can get any way you want it? And that’s before you even consider the chicken/honey butter biscuit for breakfast. No comparison at all. Reply Jessica March 30th, 2010 @ Nick…it’s cuz WB is the best. domino’s can not compare to WB nationwide chain or not! the results say it all, wb doesnt have to be nation wide to be the best in the world!!! Reply Natalie March 30th, 2010 Whataburger employees are voting…we can’t vote for our own company? Reply Natalie March 30th, 2010 Domino’s is your client…hmmm…we will let the WB fans know Reply Marcus March 30th, 2010 I think this voting is fixed. Whataburger is Way Better! Reply jennifer March 30th, 2010 I saw this on a Whataburger Facebook fan page — I think that’s where all the Whataburger votes are coming from. No one’s stuffing the ballot box — get over yourself. Nice way to really disclose that that Domino’s is a client. Could your disclaimer have been any smaller? And you’re blocking Whataburger fan votes? Seems suspicious to me. Disclosure: As Iâ€™ve mentioned in the past, Dominoâ€™s is a client, but of course that had no impact on their seeding (automatic by revenue) nor will it affect the vote by readers. Uh-huh. Reply Joshua March 30th, 2010 Whataburger!!!! I drove from Artesia NM to Roswell NM for Whataburger just yesterday. That’s an hour for a bacon-cheesburger! Met some guys who frequently drive over 3 hours for the same. It is that good! Reply Eick March 30th, 2010 @Natalie â€“ please see my note about restoring the votes and extending voting in the interest of fairness. Also, itâ€™s fine to let your FB fans know â€“ thatâ€™s a great way to mobilize votes! @Jennifer. No problem if voters come over from the WhataBurger fan page, however, those votes would all be coming from different IP addresses. There was some legitimate ballot stuffing going on – -as in several hundred votes from the same person within a span of about 1 hour. No votes have been blocked, the poll is simply set to allow one vote per IP address. As for Dominoâ€™s being a client of mine, thatâ€™s part of my day job, and So Good is a hobby and labor of love. Iâ€™ve put dozens and dozens of hours into setting up this Fast Food Bracket for everyone to enjoy, so I would never in a million years try and influence the results and risk the legitimacy of it! That would be crazy! If anyone honestly thought I would do something like that Iâ€™m more than happy to provide you with the logs of all the votes and the IP addresses they came from for any of these match-ups! I donâ€™t care who wins this Fast Food Bracket, itâ€™s just fun to see it unfold and its nice to hear when people are enjoying it. Reply Karenia March 30th, 2010 Dominos new pizza is the BEST ! & I always luved the Brooklyn style & I’m fr Cali & Whataburger is OK ..BUT Not better than Carls Jr ! =) Reply Vicki McKinley March 30th, 2010 I love Whataburger breakfast and hambergers. Reply Jennifer March 30th, 2010 no offense to any What-A-Burger folks, but I thought their food and service was crap (might be why all the ones in this area closed). I’d eat cardboard before going to a W-A-B again. Reply Vanessa March 30th, 2010 Well I work for Domino’s and have to say am also a fan. I have tried Whataburger and they are a let down! Reply shatraw March 30th, 2010 does it matter if it is one restaurant with the same IP address having repeat votes, eick? how many people can legitimately work at a WAB? repeat IP addresses should be canned. we can’t have the WAB mob bullying their way through this bracket. not that i particularly care if dominos gets knocked off, but it sets a bad precedent. Reply Debra March 30th, 2010 Just a little over a year ago, we hosted a reunion of Korean era Marines, they chose to walk to WB for breakfast and went back for lunch, they all said it was terrific. Plus the gorgeous view of Corpus Christi Bay! Reply Jordan March 30th, 2010 Domino’s is WWWAYYYY better than WB. WB is pretty average as far as taste and customer service, where as Domino’s delivers a really hot awesome looking pizza everytime. And Taco bell is nasty. Reply Holley L March 30th, 2010 We used to call Whataburger Scarf N Barf in HS. Because you’d scarf it, then an hour later you were barfing it. Reply Jeff March 30th, 2010 Whataburger baby!! Just like you like it. Reply Rene Burkhalter March 30th, 2010 Whataburger is the only fast food that I will eat Reply Rene Burkhalter March 30th, 2010 Whataburger is my favorite fast food. Reply Kami March 30th, 2010 Whataburger has the best french fries!!!! and fried pies!!!! and taquitos!!!! Reply ginger March 30th, 2010 why do whataburger corporate votes count from the same ip but no one else’s do?!?!? we have 5 people in a house with one computer, but according to your new BIASED rule, OUR votes would not count, but theyirs do. at least we all know that they have to cheat to even have a chance at winning…sad, everything IS rigged. Reply Texan March 30th, 2010 Whataburger ROCKS! Reply ryan March 30th, 2010 how is dominos considered fast food? the fastest i ever got an order was 30 minutes+ ….. Reply Kim March 30th, 2010 No question WHATABURGER!!! Best burgers in fast food, the taquitos are a perfect late night snack, and thier shakes- YUMMY! Dominos I am not impressed with the “new recipe” just more garlic and parmasean cheese on the crust- they should go back. Reply Gregg March 31st, 2010 @Kami- Whataburger has taquitos? eh . .. neway, with all these people rabbling about it, I’ve definitely gotta check it out soon. PS, if it sux, you will all be considered morons, as far as I’m concerned. Reply Lora March 31st, 2010 Dominos any day baby! i love dominos to pieces!!! unfortunately, never heard of whataburger….. Reply Kami March 31st, 2010 @Gregg—this is just for entertainment, not an IQ test–sheesh— Reply Rachel Rice March 31st, 2010 WAB IS THE B E S T of all fast foods! Especially their homemade onion rings and Jr. Burgers…..also their lemon and strawberry pies! I vote 10 times for Whataburger. Reply Rebecca April 2nd, 2010 WHATABIURGER IS THE BEST FAST FOOD COMPANY!!! THEY ARE ALL ABOUT QUALITY AND GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE…YOU CANT BEAT THAT Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
