    First Lady Melania Trump and Karen Pence, the wife of Vice President Mike Pence, stopped by a Whataburger in Corpus Christi for lunch on Wednesday December 6, 2017.

    Texans know all too well the love for Whataburger.

    It's something that can be intriguing to "non-Texans" who sometimes venture into the fast-food restaurant while in the Lone Star State visiting. 

    That intrigue got the best of First Lady Melania Trump and Karen Pence, the wife of Vice President Mike Pence on Wednesday.

    The two women flew to Corpus Christi on Wednesday to view recovery efforts since Hurricane Harvey hit more than three months ago.

    But as they were leaving town, they stopped by Whataburger to see what all the fuss was about.

    The first lady's director of communications tweeted out a photo of Melania and Karen standing at the front counter, making the tough decision between the Whatachick'n or the classic Whataburger.

    Of course, any Texan already knows that Whataburger was founded in Corpus Christi back in 1950.
