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.
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.

One of several burger outlets operated by Austin's Hamburger King, Dan Junk, whose trademark has always been good, fresh food and friendly service.
