Cuisine: Burger Joint
1112 E. Sixth +
They use only Angus beef from cows that have been fed a 100% vegetarian diet with no artificial growth hormones or antibiotics. The sandwiches go on preservative-free, locally baked bread. The shakes are made by hand with Blue Bell ice creams. What else does one need to know?
12921 Hill Country Blvd., #105, Bee Cave + 512/263-7300
This neighborhood burger joint is a great place to enjoy hand-shaped patties and a wealth of fried sides. And yes, that guy or gal pulling the tap or handing you some serious Frito pie was in that punk band you saw the other night.
2105 Hancock + 512/407-9305
Build your own burger at this longtime no-frills restaurant. Try the chicken-fried steak.
5420 Airport + 512/453-8772
2912 Guadalupe + 512/477-8433
Open at 6:30am for early birds looking for a breakfast taco or a muffin, and a special cup of joe. Later in the day, expect plate lunch specials, such as steak or pork chops.
1500 San Jacinto + 512/236-8226
Casino el Camino is famous for huge, juicy burgers with a variety of toppings and excellent hot dogs smothered in chili. Vegetarian options are available, and there's a fabulous jukebox, too.
517 E. Sixth + 512/469-9330
With items named "the Kitchen Sink," "the Backporch," and "the Purple Bubba" on its menu, the Hub has certainly staked out its demographic. We're pretty sure those are all edible.
3815 Dry Creek Dr. + 512/432-5390
One of several burger outlets operated by Austin's Hamburger King, Dan Junk, whose trademark has always been good, fresh food and friendly service.

3918 N. Lamar + 512/302-1800
