Top 5 Austin-local burger picks

When it comes to burgers in Austin, there are some classic go-tos to satisfy the craving. 

Here are my top 5 all-time favorite burger stops that were born and bunned right here in the ATX.

5. Huts Hamburger

Open since 1939! –Your burger comes with a dose of Austin nostalgia and onion rings as big as your face! My standby is the Ritchie Valens Burger (add bacon of course). On Wednesday nights from 6-10pm, Hut's offers a Hamburger Happy Hour with a two-for-one burger deal.

4. Dart Bowl

Dart bowl has been a home to Austin bowlers for 56 years! More famous for their Dart Bowl Café enchiladas, their burgers are just as amazing. A true southern style burger cooked on a flat grill with a toasted, buttery bun. I make mine a double with lots of jalapenos! You’ll love the old school charm and atmosphere as well.

3. Crown and Anchor

Since 1987, Crown and Anchor Pub has been a favorite neighborhood spot of the Hyde Park/University Area. They are open 365 days a year, from 11am to 2am! I have been enjoying their classic cheeseburger and fries since the early 90s. I hear they have an award-winning veggie burger as well, though I haven’t personally tried it ??

2. Hopdoddy

My 2nd favorite is a little newer to the Austin scene but unarguably one of the best burgers out there. Their Angus beef is ground fresh daily and the burger options are on point! I like the heat so the regular on my plate is the El Diablo, covered in serrano and habanero peppers, blanketed with melted pepper jack cheese. With a few locations around Austin, you can find one near you wherever you are!

1. Casino El Camino

That’s right! My #1 pick for the best Austin burger can be found in the dark corner of a little local bar on dirty 6th. Casino El Camino is the epitome of Austin cool. Opened in 1994, it quickly became a local fav. The burgers have been featured on the Food Network and have won best burger awards locally for several years and voted best jukebox by the Austin Chronicle! Grab a burger, a drink and listen to the tunes on the jukebox. You’ll be glad you did!
