At long last, travelers flying out of Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport will be able to eat Honey Butter Chicken Biscuits and cheeseburgers from Whataburger before a long flight.

The Texas-based burger chain will officially open inside DFW Airport’s Terminal E on Tuesday, July 2, according a press release. A rendering of the new outpost indicates that Whataburger’s characteristic orange-and-white color scheme will make the 1,200 square foot spot instantly recognizable.

The opening at DFW Airport comes after Texas was rocked by news that a majority ownership stake in Whataburger had been sold to a Chicago-based private equity firm, which sparked alarm among the chain’s most devoted fans. The backlash was so intense that Whataburger was forced to issue a cheeky statement on Facebook announcing that nothing about its beloved burgers would change.

After its July 2 debut, Whataburger will be open at DFW Airport’s Terminal E from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. Breakfast will be served from 6 a.m. to 11 a.m.
