Leeds Restaurant Highlight - Whataburger® Leeds

Since 1950, Whataburger® has proudly served a bigger, better burger and after over six decades, still family owned and operated. Each and every Whataburger® is still made to order with 100% pure beef and served on a big, toasted five-inch bun. And now, we proudly serve burgers, chicken, salads and breakfast at more than 800 Whataburger locations across the country.

Check out our Pico de Gallo Burger, our Pico de Gallo Chicken Sandwich or our Peaches & Cream Shake. In addition, just as a reminder, our drive thru is open 24 hours a day! We are also happy to announce that we have extended our dining room hours to 6 am to 12 am every day. For those who choose not to dine in, customers can pick up their Whataburger® favorites through the drive-thru, curbside pickup (from 7 am to 11 pm) or have it delivered. Curbside pickup and Delivery are great new additions and can be utilized when ordering through our online app!

In addition, we are capable of feeding large groups from 10-500 so whether it’s for a staff meeting or catering to your special events, we would love to have the opportunity to throw our name in the ring or be added to a list of restaurants you may keep on hand that have large order capabilities.

Also, please note that The Whataburger® friends and family hiring day will take place at the Hoover Metropolitan Center, Thursday, July 15, from 9:00 AM- 5:00 PM. To RSVP for the upcoming hiring event in Birmingham, visit https://whataburger.avature.net/TMhiringbirmingham
