Whataburger is now in Colorado Springs.
Colorado Springs residents this week waited in the snow for a taste of one of Texans' most-craved food staples.

San Antonio-based burger chain Whataburger opened a store Wednesday in the Rocky Mountains community, the first step of a planned expansion that's returning it the Centennial State, according to Colorado Springs' 9NEWS.

Whataburger once had a Colorado presence but hasn't operated restaurants there for decades, 9NEWS reports. Its prior Colorado Springs location eventually became Jim's Burger Haven.

According to Whataburger, at least two additional locations will open in the the Colorado Springs area later this year.

So many restaurants, so little time. Find out the latest San Antonio dining news with our Flavor Friday Newsletter.
