Austin, TX Edition: Hopdaddy Burger Bar

Hopdaddy Burger BarEvery time I visit a new city, I always try to find a decent burger joint.

Hopdaddy Burger BarAfter some searching, Hopdaddy Burger Bar came up as a must-try.

Hopdaddy Burger BarThis place is a little nonconventional. For starters, there was a line out the door. I didn't think that was too bad, so I joined behind the last person. The line, however, stretches all the way past the dining space and to the back kitchen where you place your order.

The good we make begins here. The FRESHEST available, all-natural ingredients. Our beef comes from HUMANELY RAISED COWS, never, ever given growth hormones or antibiotics. We grind everything in-house daily. Our fries are HAND-CUT from select Kennebec potatoes. Our buns are made from scratch & BAKED FRESH all day everyday. ENJOY!

After just a bit of waiting, my food arrived: Magic Shroom burger made with angus beef, Texas goat cheese, field mushrooms, mayo, basil pesto, red leaf lettuce, white onion and beefsteak tomato. Truffle fries were also a must.

Hopdaddy Burger BarThis burger was great. It was large, but it was flavorful, all fresh ingredients and a good combination of flavors. Solid burger.

Hopdaddy Burger BarThe fries - complete with a delicious garlic aioli - are the things my dreams are made of. It's just unfair how good these are. Umami is my weakness, and it just doesn't get much better.

Hopdaddy Burger BarIt's definitely hipster-y and a little tedious as far as process goes, but my meal was worth the wait.
