A Whataburger employee filmed himself making an item that is currently unorderable at the grocery chain: french fries loaded from the buffalo farm.
The video was uploaded by TikTok user @iamnick556. In the clip, he goes straight to how to make loaded fries at Buffalo Ranch. First he takes out a few pieces of bacon, puts them in the fryer and frys them. Once the bacon is done cooking, he takes it out while removing the basket of fries after frying.
Then he dumps the fries and adds salt to them. After that, he scoops up some fries and puts them in a styrofoam container.
With the fries in tow, the creator opens a cupboard, grabs a handful of shredded cheese and sprinkles it on the fries. He then places the fries under a light from the fry station and begins slicing crispy chicken breasts. The camera switches to the fries as he opens the box and sprinkles pieces of bacon on it. Finally, he adds the chicken pieces to the fries and drizzles them with buffalo sauce and ranch.
Once the order is complete, the content creator and one of his colleagues get to work.
