Bill Miller, other San Antonio restaurant roast Whataburger over recent sale

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — One San Antonio food chain is taking shots at another on social media all because of a recent business dealing.

Bill Miller Bar-B-Q posted on its Facebook page an image of someone holding a tea in front of the Alamo with the following statement: “Don’t worry, San Antonio! We’re from here and have been family owned and operated since 1953.  That’s the way it is, and that’s the way it will always be. -Bill”

Whataburger announced Friday it had sold a majority interest in its operations to investment firm BDT Capital Partners and has been derided online for selling out to a company in Chicago.

Whataburger has been on the defensive after the announcement, stating it will always be Texan and will continue to be headquartered in San Antonio.

Along with Bill Miller Bar-B-Q, other chains have gotten in on throwing the orange and white W some shade:
