When YouTube star Mike Chen moved to Dallas-Fort Worth in early 2021, it was clear he would shine a spotlight on North Texas food that he couldn’t find in his previous home, Seattle.

But then he came after Whataburger.

In a video posted Sept. 5, 2021, Chen took a trip to the orange A-frame and purchased two giant plastic bags full of burgers, chicken sandwiches, breakfast and pie. He seemed surprised when he pulled a few “lifeless” sandwiches from their wrappers.

“I don’t understand how this aged so rapidly,” he said early in the video.
