First Lady Melania Trump and Second Lady Karen Pence on Wednesday visited popular Texas hamburger chain Whataburger while in the state to meet with victims of Hurricane Harvey.

Melania and Karen were visiting coastal Texas to meet with first responders and victims of Hurricane Harvey, and chose to stop at one of the chain's restaurants, which is popular for its burgers. The chain has been family-owned since opening its first burger stand in Corpus Christi, Texas, in 1950.

But before leaving Corpus Christi, the first lady and the second lady stopped at Whataburger's flagship location for some lunch. They are here for ongoing help for #HurricaneHarvey.


'On our way out of town, @FLOTUS & @SecondLady chose to stop in to @Whataburger for some lunch! Trump's director of communications, Stephanie Grisham, tweeted. Thanks for stopping by'.

Trump and Pence are also expected to make a trip to Charlie Marshall Elementary School in Aransas Pass to speak with students and faculty who were affected by the storm.

The packed schedule included meeting with first responders, a family whose house was destroyed in the hurricane and a visit to the family's Manufactured Housing Unit, a temporary house built by FEMA, according to ABC News. President Donald Trump made a stop in Annaville just days after the hurricane made landfall, drawing thousands of residents who lined the road to see him.
