Texas trips aren't complete without Whataburger and first lady Melania Trump can probably vouch for that.

While visiting the Texas Coast to check on recovery efforts following Hurricane Harvey, which landed in late August, Trump and second lady Karen Pence stopped by Whataburger in Corpus Christi. Her Director of Communications, Stephanie Grisham, tweeted a photo of the first and second lady ordering their meals.

Grisham also shared some burger trivia, saying the chain, which is based in San Antonio, opened in 1950 with its first location in Corpus Christi.

Media: Associated Press

According to the Corpus Christi Caller Times, the restaurant they chose to stop at is off Old Brownsville Road, at 602 Padre Island Dr.

CNN Reporter Kate Bennett, who is part of the press pool, shared a photo of the Whataburger location where they stopped for lunch, but said she didn't get to try any of the beloved burgers.

"We here in the press van, however, are burgerless," she tweeted.

Moments later, she tweeted another photo -- the press van was able to get fries.
