First Lady Melania Trump and Second Lady Karen Pence are in South Texas checking out relief efforts still underway after Hurricane Harvey

First Lady Melania Trump and Second Lady Karen Pence arrived in the Coastal Bend Wednesday to meet with families affected by Hurricane Harvey and the first responders who are part of the recovery effort.

The first lady's director of communications tweeted out a photo of Melania and Karen standing at the front counter, making the tough decision between the Whatachick'n or the classic Whataburger.

Pence also shared a statement, saying "Our hearts are encouraged by the people of Texas and their continued enthusiasm to help each other pick up the pieces and rebuild after Hurricane Harvey". The American chain opened its 1st restaurant in Corpus Christi, TX in 1950!

But before leaving Corpus Christi, the first lady and the second lady stopped at Whataburger's flagship location for some lunch.

THe pair were joined by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott's wife Cecilia and Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush. "We here in the press van, however, are burgerless", tweeted presumably hungry CNN reporter Kate Bennett. They are here for ongoing help for #HurricaneHarvey. Thanks for stopping by'. They will then travel to Rockport to meet a family whose home was destroyed in the storm, and tour the home's remains. They will see the remains of that family's home, along with the FEMA manufactured home the family is living in now.

Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas in late August as a category 4 storm.
