(map) If you’re in the vicinity of Perissos Vineyards (right across the road), you owe it to yourself to taste the famous burgers at this little down-home cafe. One-third-pound, hand-formed beef with the works: lettuce, tomato, cheese, pickles and either regular or seasoned fries. The buns are what make the burger. They’re sweet-and-sourdough buns all […]

(map) July 6th marks this awesome burger place’s tenth year in business. In honor of that, P. Terry’s is giving away free t-shirts, temporary tattoos, and more. The front features the logo; on the back, this groovy design. They start giving the swag away when they open up tomorrow at 10 am. First come first served, so […]

(map) Yes, Fudds is a chain, but a local (based in Houston) chain. A deliciously tasty chain. Fuddruckers just opened its newest location in Bee Cave, in the former Waterloo spot (they did keep the mega-sized playscape and washer-pitching areas). Their 100% fresh, never-frozen burgers and

Best Burgers Out West

A new website, Foodie, lets you create “collections” of restaurants based on dishes, specialty, location – the sky’s the limit! We just created a collection of the best burgers out West. You’ll find quite a few green-chile cheeseburgers, and even one the Wall Street Journal dubbed “the best burger in America.”  Check it out here, and if […]

(map) We’ve posted previously about Fore’s sleek, contemporary dining space and awesome happy hour here and here. For the summer, they just rolled out a new menu including lobster rolls, above. Rich, decadent chunks of lobster are nestled into buttery grilled rolls. Crispy ahi tuna rolls and cheesesteak sliders are some of the other new […]

Ski Shores Cafe

(map) No town does the lake-casual thing like Austin does, and Ski Shores is one of the best. A recent update spiffs up a place that’s been a lakeside legend since the 50s. New menu items like the double-whammy Scooter Burger are a big draw, too (awesome photo courtesy of friend and food-photo genius Emily […]

(map) We thought we had tasted all the green-chile burgers out West, until a friend pointed out this baby. What a contender! 1/3-pound of grass-fed, organic beef (you can upgrade to Wagyu beef for $2.50 more), served on a freshly baked whole-wheat bun, topped with melted cheddar and a huge, roasted poblano pepper. Served with […]

(map) We didn’t expect to find so many great green-chile options out West! The burger at J5 weighs in at a whopping half-pound. The beef is hand-shaped for extra juiciness, cooked to order and topped with chopped green chiles, chipotle mayo, and a monster slab of cheddar. This is one of those times to break […]

(map) The legendary music roadhouse rocks an awesome burger, 1/3-pound with the works: grilled green chiles and onions, pepperjack cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, mustard and mayo. It all makes for one delicious hot mess. Especially good when washed down with an ice-cold beer and songs by Gary P Nunn. No wonder it’s famous! Poodie’s Hilltop […]

(map) The burger battle continues out West! Technically, this one is called the Three-Chile Burger, with a combination of red chile powder, grilled poblanos and chipotle mayo all bringing the heat. The beef comes from a local shop in Johnson City, and it makes for one juicy burger. Served on a grilled brioche roll with […]
