It’s not everyday that Whataburger employees get to serve A-list celebrities.

Matthew McConaughey visited a Whataburger drive-thru for a bite to eat in San Angelo Monday and nearly went unrecognized until one employee noticed his last name on the credit card, according to San Angelo LIVE!.

The video of the Oscar-winning actor and Austinite’s encounter with the staff has received more than 1,500 total likes, shares and comments as of Wednesday morning. The video was posted by Whataburger employee Brooklynn Deanne Oden on her Facebook account.
