By lunchtime, scores of social media posters were reporting that the Whataburger app was crashing as they attempted to redeem their free burger coupon, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Whataburger had this to say about the system slowdowns:

“Wow, you really crashed our party during lunchtime! We apologize for the inconvenience. Our app is back up and running again. If you were in our restaurants, our Family Members took care of you and our Customer Care team is hard at work making it right for those of you who have reached out. Thanks for celebrating with us today! You have made our 73 years amazing, and we can’t wait to see what’s in store next!”


Good news. Today has officially been named National Whataburger Day!

If you’re having trouble deciding what you want for lunch or dinner here’s your answer. In honor of National Whataburger Day, the restaurant will be giving away free burgers through their rewards app, in which you’d have to be a member, as well as table tents.

The offer is only valid at participating locations and can be redeemed once. 

No word yet on how Reddit users are taking the news. 

In the meantime, you can become a rewards member in three easy steps to not miss out on future observations.

You can download the Whataburger App on the App Store or on Google Play, then create a free Whataburger Rewards account. You need to have placed at least one order through the app within the past 12 months.
