Whataburger is worth the wait, especially when you see the employees doing their best as is the case with Leander Texas Whataburger employee, high school senior Danny Trejo.

No matter where you live in Texas, you know there is usually a line at Whataburger.

And that is okay. Whataburger is soooo worth the wait! Well in Leander Texas, about 2 1/2 hours from Victoria, one Texan and his son were waiting for their order patiently when they saw something really awesome.

You go Danny Trejo!

Danny Trejo, an 18-year-old senior at Glenn High School in Leander Texas was running Whataburger orders to customers waiting in the drive-thru to help expedite food and frankly, service.

TikTok video goes viral in the best way!

Cody Trapp, and his 8-year-old son, Preston, were so impressed by young Danny's relentless hustle that Cody grabbed his phone and filmed Danny running orders on TikTok, captioning the video with " Let's get this Whataburger employee a raise."

In fact, Mr. Trapp posted the video of Danny three times on his TikTok account, and every time it was posted, the video was watched over 2 million times!

A strong work ethic is worth extra recognition.

One of the things that makes this viral video so great is young Danny's work ethic, especially as a full-time high school student working nights at Whataburger.

Since the pandemic, lots of Texas businesses have relayed they are having a hard time finding reliable and willing employees. The food industry is suffering as there is high demand for food to go and not enough employees to meet the increase.

You can watch the Youtube video from KVUE below.

How much money has been raised?

Since the video has been posted over a month ago, over $300.00 has been raised for Danny. According to the KVUE video though, Danny is just honored to have been highlighted. His mother could not be more proud.

Neither can we.
