Texas Tech coach Chris Beard is capturing the attention of college basketball fans across the state of Texas and beyond for his affinity of Whataburger.
Beard’s latest episode with the Texas fast-food hamburger joint was a 3 a.m. run to one of the chain’s locations in Dallas, Texas earlier in the week. The Red Raiders opened their play in the NCAA Tournament at the American Airlines Center with a thrilling win over Stephen F. Austin on Thursday.
When Beard addressed the media during Texas Tech’s off-day on Friday, Whataburger was back at the forefront of the conversation. And the second-year Red Raiders coach had some advice for all to hear on how to properly do late-night trips to the Texas hamburger institution.
Chris Beard’s advice on late-night Whataburger trips
According to the San Antonio Express-News’ Mike Finger, Beard isn’t a fan of doing the drive thru when he makes late-night trips to Whataburger. Here’s why:
“Have you ever gone to Whataburger at 2 or 3 in the morning? Don’t go through the drive-thru. Go in next time, and just get a corner booth and watch America. You’ll see so many cool things at Whataburger. You will see a guy pick up a tab for somebody else. You will see somebody clean up a plate that wasn’t his.”
Bead’s full thoughts on Whataburger can be seen below. You can even get a glimpse of his favorite items on the menu, depending on the time of the day.

And that is the latest chapter of an incredible saga between Beard and Whataburger — one that is likely far from being over.
Beard and the Red Raiders get back to action on Saturday when Texas Tech faces 6-seed Florida. The Gators are coming off a win over St. Bonaventure in the opening round. Tip-off is set for 7:40 p.m. CT back at the American Airlines Center in Dallas.
