we eat a lot of burgers. not on purpose, but when we are out running errands and looking for a good, quick, inexpensive bite, burgers are where it's at. while at lunch on saturday, CL and I were talking about all the burger places in austin, and how they rank.. which got me thinking.. we have a LOT of great burger places in the capital city. here are our faves.. in no particular order!

(owned by amy of amy's ice cream!)
5620 Burnet Road-Northland and Burnet (Next to Amy's Ice Creams!)
2901 S. Lamar the heart of 78704
phils has a great burger.. and they are all named after areas of town! (theres an allandale, brentwood, rosedale, 78704!) sourdough buns, fresh veggies, and you can complete your order with mix fries (sweet potato AND regular!) and a bonus.. stadium to-go cups! i love my phils cups!

3208 Guadalupe Street, Austin
Ste 142, 10000 Research Boulevard, Austin
4301 W William Cannon Dr, Austin
relitively new to austin, five guys has a great, all inclusive burger (everything from mushrooms and onions included!) and their fries? YUMMY!
7525 Burnet Road Austin, TX 78757
 okay, if you've been living in austin for more than a hot second and haven't been to top notch, you are doing yourself a disservice. an austin institution since 1971 top notch has a delicious menu full of burgers, fried chicken and other delicious fried goodies. we havent tried the fried chicken, but have heard nothing but good things about it. and the onion rings? best in town. they now accept credit and debit cards too!

10515 North Mopac Expy #205, Austin
5601 Brodie Ln #1300, Sunset Valley
part of the rudy's bbq family, mighty fine has some yummy burgers! all fresh ingreditents, crinkle cut fries (my fav!) and delish bluebell ice cream shakes, you can't go wrong. they also have a chopped chili dog that tastes as good as it sounds! and bonus! to-go stadium cups too!

8107 Mesa Dr, Austin, TX 78759
a no nonsense burger joint, wallys has yummy burgers, chicken strips, and fries for those craving a quick bite on the north side. make sure if you dont like mustard to tell them.. they use a lot!
1400 S Congress Ave STE 190A, Austin, TX 78705
 you know how they say if there is a line, it must be good? well that holds true there. its easy to find on SOCO.. just look for the line. all fresh, organic ingredients, local beer, and delicious curry ketchup, hop doddy doesn't disappoint. bonus? they spike their milkshakes. oh yea.

1701 East Cesar Chavez Ste. B, Austin
two words. stuffed. burgers. with a menu full of creatievely named burgers (the norma jean! the foghorn leghorn!) hot dogs (um hello the 'snoop dog!) and sides, this un-diet friendly eatery is quickly becoming the east-sides go to burger joint.

404 South Lamar Boulevard, Austin 
3303 North Lamar Boulevard, Austin
4228 West William Cannon Drive, Austin
a true burger stand, P. Terry's is an austinites go to burger. although i've only actually eaten their chicken burger (trust me, its delicious), P.Terry's is definately one of my faves. and their fresh lemonade? my mouth is watering just thinking about it!

5400 Burnet Road, Austin
fresh beef, fresh fries, and made to order shakes? always with double meat too! hat creek burgers are a game time fav too.. they have a stand at UTs Daryl K Royal Stadium!

dan's/ fran's
5602 North Lamar Boulevard, Austin/ 1822 South Congress Avenue, Austin
separated by divorce, Dan's and Fran's are basically the same burger, with different names. Looking for something delicious and greasy? this is the burger for you. did i mention it's delicious?  cause it is!

807 West 6th Street, Austin, TX
an austin tradition since 1939, hut's is the definition of austin. local and delicious. meat purchased in south austin, over 20 choices (plus build your own- the options are endless!), and a hamburger happy hour (2 for 1 burgers, wednesdays 6-10pm!), Hut's is your downtown burger destination.

9828 Great Hills Trail, Austin, TX
organic, sustainable, grassfed, free-range. all ways to elevate your dining experience. elevation burger allows you to build your own burger (3-10 patties!) and top them off with an assortment of yummy toppings (blue cheese!) cutting carbs? they can wrap your burger in lettuce!

have any faves? did i miss one?
