Best Burger in Austin
I like to eat. I love to eat burgers. Every other meal I consume consists of some sort of meat n bun combo. That’s why I have decided to take up the difficult quest of finding the best burger in Austin.
Currently, I am starting with the café / fast food/ drive through burgers. Over the next few months I will be going around town and ordering the same thing :a double meat cheese burger with bacon, fries, and an unsweet iced tea.
I will then bracket the best and together, we will vote and decide. Please nominate the places I should try (keep in mind these should be in the category of quick, cheap take home burgers that are not giant chains such as McDonalds).
My ‘contest’ will come to an end just in time for National Burger Day in Austin.
Good burger for the price. The line moves swift and the food is always hot. The patties are small but the special sauce and good buns make up for that. The fries are good but nothing special. Iced Tea is on point! These serve as a good middle of the road burger. 4/7
Places to Try:
Best Dive/Pub Burger
Examples: Casino El Camino, Jackalope, Tap Room (San Marcos)
This type of burger is typically found at your neighborhood bar, gas station, small restaurant or dive. They usually have a typical burger, made very simplistically. They often have a house or specialty/exceptionally unique burger as well.
Best Gourmet Burger/Restaurant Burger
Examples: Hopdoddy, Parkside, Max’s Wine Dive, Twin Peaks, Five Guys
This burger would be found at a nicer, sit down bar or restaurant. It’s usually a little more expensive but still unique compared to chain restaurants etc.
Best Drive Through, Cafe or Fast Food Burger
Examples: P Terry’s, Fran’s, Dan’s, Whataburger. Mighty Fine, Short Stop
If you don’t always have time to dine in and it only takes a matter of minutes to get your burger -then this is the place you go.
This includes food trailers and restaurants not know for burgers that make a mean one.
