Maybe the Best Burger I’ve Ever Had, at Hopdoddy in Austin

While visiting Austin, Texas, a friend took me to a burger place called Hopdoddy. The place was packed and I soon learned why. The fries were great, the milkshake was fantastic and the burger I ordered, “The Prime Burger” might just have been the best hamburger I’ve ever eaten.

I’m not ashamed to say that as soon as I finished I waived the bartender over and ordered a second one. The dozen or so burgers run the gamut as far as being different. From beef, to chicken to lamb to bison.


The Prime Burger was: Texas Akaushi Beef, Brie Cheese, Truffle Aioli, Arugula, Caramelized Onions, Steak Sauce. If you’re passing through Austin I could not recommend this place enough. High end Burgers fries and shakes for a very reasonable price. No, don’t ask. There’s no pictures of the burgers. I ate them way to fast to take pictures.

    How are you just now posting this!? AND where is a picture of this gourmet burger? or even the second burger? I’d like to lobby for a hopdaddy part II.

      haha. Backlogged. Lots of great content to post! I think I ate it way before I even thought to take a picture. I’d be all for grabbing another one!
