Great Burgers & Shakes. Nice to have relaxing space and a variety of options to make a burger different from what I can do on my own grill.

My husband was disappointed that his medium rare bison burger was more like medium well - but it was a great burger (juicy and homemade buns make them great). I had the mushroom burger with pesto and it was amazing. We split parmesan truffle fries and they were awesome. Very garlicky! Topped it off with a ginger lemonade and it... More

Oops wrote my first review for the other location. This is the place great location on Congress. Lots of nightlife around too. The wait is worth it to get a great beer and burger.

Being new to Austin, I saw the line for this place and had to try it! After waiting about 45 minutes in line, I ordered a burger and fries. The burger was good...not bad, but not amazing (or worth a 45 minute wait). The burger options are fun, but not too out of the ordinary that you could buy something... More

Had a wonderful lunch with some family while visiting Austin. They spoke highly of this restaurant and I was not dissapointed. I had the best lamb burger with wonderful flavors. They have a great variety in their offerings and this isn't just a traditional burger joint.

This place was recommended as a must do while staying on South Congress. It didn't disappoint. We were prepared for a long wait but surprisingly the line was short and we got through quickly, but the line was out the door 10 minutes later. The burgers were unique and delicious. I had the terlingua with chile concarne and fritos, WOW!... More

Although I expected a long waiting line into my arrival ; very welcome surprise yo find seating at the bar just as agreeable. Welcoming service, fair staff attention znd the variety of choice quite modest. More upscale than your typical burger but not one that implies a reservation. I would definitely recommend for a gals nite out, guy hangout where... More

The food is delicious. I recommend the salmon burger, truffle fries, and you have to have a shake for dessert. The only negative is the wait time. I don't understand it. You wait outside in a long line that circles around the building (this is one of the reasons it is not suitable for children) and at the end of... More

Best burgers. Hands down. You literally cannot go wrong with any of them. The continental is delicious, prime time, and Diablo are all my favorites. Get the truffle fries, and some queso fries. The salads are solid too! Milkshakes are delicious, and add some booze if you want :-)
