“Great burger, fast service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

I have heard this place can be packed in the evening. We went for an early lunch and were in and out quick. I had the Llano Poblano with turkey and a wheat bun. VERY good burger. French fries were average. Service was great. We were greeted and given a table #, then had very good service when we ordered and then had very good service again at our table. I have been to much "finer" restaurants than this and not seen waiters half as often. I love burger joints and would definitely recommend and I will definitely go back. Parking is in a garage in the rear and it's easy access. Keep your ticket, they will validate.

“Never thought I'd review a burger place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

Its more a experience than a burger place. Long line to get in. But great ambience. Order your drink from the bar while in line for the burgers. Soon as you order, they move you to a table and the food is brought there when ready. Restaurant was completely packed and we waited at least 20 mins to get in and another 20 mins in line at the bar and to order our burgers. Good selection at the bar. I ordered a milkshake which was great. The burgers and fries (with dip) were excellent. Never thought I'd line up for more than half hour for a burger but definitely worth it and I will be back.

“One of the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

I've done my best to eat hamburgers everywhere I've traveled. I passed this place while looking for lunch, it looked inviting, I went in, everything changed! It wasn't just a little burger joint on the South Congress strip, it was a local legend. I figured that out as soon as I entered and saw the line. I was alone and, luckily, a spot opened at the bar, which I grabbed. It's one of the best spots because you can order from the bartender and in a short time your food arrives. Meanwhile, you get to have a good cocktail or a great beer and watch the people in line. Fun.

The burgers are excellent and I've eaten a lot of burgers. The fries were very good. I had a chocolate shake, which they make at the bar with real ice cream. All top notch food.

The place is very clean and has a nice vibe to it. I'd definitely return.

“Freshly baked buns, freshly ground meat, freshly cut fries.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013 via mobile

Need I say more? This place rocks the great burger. Had the el diablo regular fry, Parmesan fry, and kale salad. Deeeelish and great service. Great beer selection and homemade ice cream to boot.

Parking in a garage located behind the restaurant. They will validate your parking

Don't be intimidated by the long lines. They move fast and are very organized in how they seat guests.

“Long lines but worth the wait”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Best burger joint in Ausin - we kept walking past the long-line and then gave in and joined. Saved a bunch of time by sitting at the bar - had table service and no further queuing once inside! Food is great and reasonably priced, also offer gluten-free alternative. Would definitely go back.
