El Paso Favorite Gabriel Iglesias Weighs in On Whataburger/In-N-Out Debate
Stand back, y’all. El Paso’s favorite fluffy comedian just reignited the Whataburger vs. In-N-Out debate that has raged for years. Gabriel Iglesias is taking sides, and it ain’t ours.
Tweeting a photo of the In-N-Out drive-thru menu with the caption, "Sorry Texas. I love u but this is my soul" Iglesias showed his colors in the social media burger war, and it’s not orange and white.
The outcry was swift with many of Gabe’s Texas fans clowning him with mock anger and dismay.
I'm not gonna lie, I was a little hurt Gabriel went there. But we still agree Chico's Tacos are the best tacos anyone will ever drink, right, Fluffy?

And like Star Wars vs. Star Trek, NSYNC vs. Backstreet Boys, Pepsi vs. Coke, red or green tamales?, and were Ross and Rachel on a break?, the Whataburger vs. In-N-Out debate will likely continue for years to come.
(BTW, the right answers are Star Wars, BSB, Coke, red, yes, and Whataburger.)
