This place was recommended as a must do while staying on South Congress. It didn't disappoint. We were prepared for a long wait but surprisingly the line was short and we got through quickly, but the line was out the door 10 minutes later. The burgers were unique and delicious. I had the terlingua with chile concarne and fritos, WOW!... More

Although I expected a long waiting line into my arrival ; very welcome surprise yo find seating at the bar just as agreeable. Welcoming service, fair staff attention znd the variety of choice quite modest. More upscale than your typical burger but not one that implies a reservation. I would definitely recommend for a gals nite out, guy hangout where... More

The food is delicious. I recommend the salmon burger, truffle fries, and you have to have a shake for dessert. The only negative is the wait time. I don't understand it. You wait outside in a long line that circles around the building (this is one of the reasons it is not suitable for children) and at the end of... More

Best burgers. Hands down. You literally cannot go wrong with any of them. The continental is delicious, prime time, and Diablo are all my favorites. Get the truffle fries, and some queso fries. The salads are solid too! Milkshakes are delicious, and add some booze if you want :-)

Food was great. Very crowded and service method was confusing. Hostess was good to explain after asking for assistance. Sketchy neighborhood with street people asking for money.

Found this place as we were walking on South Congress. The food was amazing! The fries with the parmesan aioli were out of this world! The service was top notch and the burgers were fresh and tasty.

Every single time all 3 of my kiddos are home from college, we go to Hopdoddy's for burgers. Park in the parking garage behind the restaurant. They will validate your parking. If you see a line out the door & around the corner, do not let that hinder your decision to eat there. The line moves fast, they serve you... More

Glad we made this a lunch stop. What a great concept walk in walk up to make an order while doing so a member of the staff prepares a table for you so by the time you have placed your order picked up your drink you go right to a table. There were 6 in our party and other than... More

Seems there is always a line to get in. Been a few times. Food is OK, not the greatest. I do not see the reason for the long wait times. Plenty of other places that have better burgers and drinks.

Love the burgers here. Staff is great. Great location. Full liquor bar. Tasty shakes on a hot day. Salad, burger and a cold goblet of beer seems to work. My ONLY issue with Hopdoddy is their nasty system for serving their patrons. They make you line up outside, in the elements, with an inefficient means of serving you outside. YOU... More
