Great concept, but more importantly, great food!

A little confusing and overwhelming as a newbie, but the staff is eager to help. You line up and head to the rear where a cashier takes your order (menu on boards), you pay for your meal and take a number with you to where a waitress has shown you to a table. Shortly after you sit, your delicious... read more

I am constantly shocked by how many people say that this place is the best burger they have ever had. Don't get me wrong, their burgers are good, but they are by far the best burger in town. Shady Grove has better burgers than Hopdoddy! If you want a cool burger place with a different take on how to make... More

Great meat, and awsome fries. It,s a great place to have a burguer and a beer. Very nice ambience and great food. I think it's more like to eat with friends than to have a business meal.

For all the hype, it was a let down. Long line wait, noisy, confusing menu. Food was fine. Not great. Not worth the wait. I'll take a Mighty Fine burger over this any day

Service was great, but the burger was rare, borderline raw in the middle. I didn't care, but my girlfriend usually likes hers more on the medium side. Truffle parmasam fries were amazing, and i loved the local soda selection.

I have re-visited Hopdoddy again in 01/2016. we visited the one on Anderson Lane. But our burger was COLD, COLD fried. This time the server stop and asked us if the food is OK. All 6 of us said the same complaint but NO sorry, NO offer to bring a WARM or just grill. I just think that they pre-heat... More

This burger joint is the real deal. The place has a system to manage crowds and it's quite popular so off times may be easier. The burgers and truffle fries are great. Top it off with a chocolate pretzel shake. Then don't eat for a while. Enjoy!

The burgers were great. Really, really, delicious. The fries were fantastic. The wait staff was efficient and kind. But a 1.5 hour long wait for a burger (we lined up around 4 PM) took the experience from a 5-star to a 4-star for me. They do have free parking, which is rare on S. Congress.

Everything here is delicious. They have burgers you cannot find anywhere else and their chili fries are awesome!

We stood online for an hour and a half and I don't think it was worth the wait. The burger was cold and the French fries were too skinny like McDonald fries. Definitely not a special meal. My daughter got the Greek burger and said it was sour! Last visit for me!
