No chicken express here yet. Anyway since we are talking about food places. Steak and shake has good shakes, and chilli in my humble opinion. Brings me to childhood every time I go there. I found some decent places (local chains) here in San Antonio. If you ever get a chance to come here, please check out these guys. They're affordable and for your money, worth it. Yes, there are some really good stuff out there as well, but these are more affordable. Bill Miller's BBQ, a good selection and won't break the bank. There are two Mexican chains that are also good, Las Palapas and Taco Cabana, some very good budget friendly Mexican food. I got some other great restaurants here, but for what you paying, very good stuff.

Taco Cabana is all over Houston too.   In my wilder days, this was the goto place at 2am when the bars closed down.   (its 24 hours)
Not GREAT Tex-Mex, but a significant step up from fast food.

I like Whataburger a lot, but they aren't my favorite burger in town. 
How about I post some pics of our local favorite:  Gunslinger's Grill

Its awesome.   I'll be honest, most of the time a single patty cheeseburger is all I can handle!

To be honest what a burger is not that good for me. There are so many options, particularly when it goes to burger joints, but they do periodically have an A1 burger that is good. I do like their shakes. But so much fast food to choose from.

I'm with you.  There are some that swear by Whataburger, and I always enjoy it when I do go...but I never pick it as a general rule.   They are a little pricey and kinda slow.  
And, like you said, with so many good mom and pop burger joints around...
Still, who didn't love the old commercials?

I've seen it spotlighted on the Food Network in the past. That place is huge!

They are famous for their chili so most of the menu is chili based. Ex. You can get a double bacon chili cheese burger.

If I'm going for a burger, I'm going to In n Out. Soooo good.

About Raising Cane's. They are starting to pop up here in Southern california. Tried it today and I really liked it. That sauce though, was amazing! I will definitely be back!

Too bad you didn't get to experience Popeye's while Al Copeland owned it. Now that was some great Fried Chicken!!!!
