First Lady Melania Trump and Second Lady Karen Pence visited a regional chain with a cult following while traveling in Texas.

On Wednesday, Trump and Pence stopped by Whataburger after meeting with Hurricane Harvey victims in the state.

"On our way out of town, @FLOTUS & @SecondLady decided to stop in to @Whataburger for some lunch!" the first lady's director of communications Stephanie Grisham‏ tweeted.

Whataburger is a 790-location Southern fast-food powerhouse with a cult following in Texas. The chain has been family-owned since opening its first humble burger stand in Corpus Christi, Texas, in 1950.

The decision to visit Whataburger quickly earned the praise of Texas institutions and the burger chain's fans.

Others were less pleased to see the first lady at Whataburger.

The burger chain seemed happy to host the high-profile guests.

Whataburger tweeted: "Hope it was a great meal! Thanks for stopping by."
