5 Ways to Celebrate Texas Independence Day

This March 2 marks the 182nd year since Texans banded together to declare independence from Mexico and establish the Republic of Texas. We’ve put together a few ways to show your pride this Texas Independence Day.

1. Start the day with a serving of pride

Start off the day with some Lone Star pancakes, an HBCB, or whatever your Texan-loving heart fancies.

2. Texaccesorize!

Got some Texas apparel? Whether it’s a clever tee, a 10-gallon hat or a classic accessory (ahem, the James Avery Whataburger charm) rock it with pride this Texas Independence Day.

3. Saddle up and get some Whataburger

What’s a celebration without Whataburger? Mosey on over to your neighborhood Whataburger and get your favorite meal for convenient horseback dining.

4. Don't forget your Yeti

Celebrate the day with two Texas-born companies: Whataburger and Yeti. For one-stop pride, fill your Whataburger-branded Yeti with classic sweet tea or a Dr Pepper.

5. Enjoy the beauty of the Lone Star State

Whether it’s a scenic drive across the Devil’s Backbone, dipping your toes in the water of the Gulf of Mexico, or enjoying a quiet meal by Canyon Lake, spend some time outdoors and take in the wonder that is Texas.


Whataburger has focused on its fresh, made-to-order burgers and friendly customer service since 1950 when Harmon Dobson opened the first Whataburger as a small roadside burger stand in Corpus Christi, Texas. Dobson gave his restaurant a name he hoped to hear customers say every time they took a bite of his made-to-order burgers: “What a burger!” Within the first week, people lined up around the block for his 25 cent, 100 percent beef burgers served on five-inch buns. Today, the company is headquartered in San Antonio, Texas, with more than 820 locations in 10 states with sales of more than $2 billion annually. Visit www.whataburger.com for more information.
