Hopdoddy Burger Bar
4615 N. Lamar #307, 512/335-2337
Hours: Sun.-Thu., 11am-10pm; Fri.-Sat., 11am-11pm
The menu offers an exemplary burger lineup in the $7 to $12 range, with an emphasis on quality ingredients: buns freshly baked in-house, hand-crafted patties of freshly ground beef (or bison, tuna, or veggies), and homemade condiments. Any conversation about the best burger in Austin has to include Hopdoddy. As the local chain expands westward, we suspect that same conversation is happening in cities wherever Hopdoddy has set up shop.

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.
