Editor's note: A previous version of this article incorrectly listed the location's address as 713 Melton St., Magnolia. The article has since been updated to list 714 Melton St., Magnolia as the location's address and include a statement from Whataburger.

The city of Magnolia's first Whatburger location is now open at 714 Melton St., on the corner of Melton Street and FM 1488, according to Whataburger representatives. The restaurant opened Aug. 17, the first in the city of Magnolia.

“We’re pleased to share that our new location at 714 Melton St. is officially open, and we’re bringing fresh, made-to-order burgers to the Magnolia community," said Whataburger General Manager Reckell Thomas. "We look forward to serving our new neighbors and hope to welcome you soon.”

The San Antonio-based company is known for its selection of burgers and sandwiches such as the Whataburger Patty Melt, Honey BBQ Chicken Strip Sandwich and Mushroom Swiss Burger. According to an aerial photo taken by the Magnolia Police Department on the eatery's opening day on Aug. 17, the location received a high volume of customers as vehicles lined the drive-thru.

As previously reported by Community Impact Newspaper, the anticipated Whataburger location was originally announced by Magnolia city leaders in January. The location was under construction in May and was slated to open this fall. www.whataburger.com
