I moved to Atascocita at the beginning of August 2015 and I had received a flyer in the mail. One of the offers was for mini cupcakes from a nearby bakery. I visited that bakery to claim my free cupcakes and spoke to the baker...directly. I asked him about the other establishments mentioned on the flyer and he recommended Hippo Burgers. I visited soon after and I have been a regular ever since. I have tried all of their signature burgers except one (not a mushroom fan). I even starved myself until about 3 in the afternoon to try The Monster Hippo one time. That one was so awesome, but Hippo Texas is my favorite burger. The Hippo Buffalo Fries are really tasty, too. I was the first customer at the Atascocita grand opening in the Spring of 2018...I am proud to say. I took my Teo Bffs with me and I tell everyone I encounter that they must try a Hippo Burger. P.S. I think anyone can make a burger and throw a bunch a crap on it, call it a signature burger and charge up the wazoo. The difference between those places and Hippo is the meat. I feel the meat is the foundation of the burger and Hippo chefs season the meat just right. I am carnivore, but I have vegetarian offspring. I took my youngest and she ordered the BBQ and asked them to substitute the Buffalo Fries for the meat. They did and she said it was really good.More

Walked up to order cashier just looked at us. Then finally said what do you want. I was a little taken back, we then ordered. He literally didn’t say anything. My wife asked what was Cajun fries, he stated it has seasoning on it. I...was amazed that this is whom they choose to greet customers. We ordered and she ordered a shake. Same young man delivered. My wife said politely thank you, he just walked away. If you are going to work with customers learn some manners and customer service.More

The burgers are very generous in size and flavor. Just bring your appetite. Sides are also great! Gets crowded at times but worth the wait.

I haven’t had such a good burger in a long time. Real meat and home cut French fries. Good customer service.

Once my eyes adjusted to the brightness of the yellow and red interior walls and bright fluorescent lighting I studied the menu board and placed my order. I asked for the Mushroom burger, an order of onion rings and an ice tea. It was a...bit hard to hear the guy at the cash register as there were 6 guys at a table behind me talking loudly and this place is all hard surfaces so sounds echo here. I filled my tea and sat and waited. Seemed like a steady stream of lunch customers, several had ID tags that looked like from the nearby high school, maybe teachers. My order came out and it was pretty awesome, a big burger and plenty of onion rings. Their rings are the crunchy crisp breaded ones and tasted great, their oil in the fryer is obviously fresh. The burger was super juicy and the meat is not hard pressed into a patty shape but kind of broke up in the bun. The mushrooms and grilled onions were super hot of the griddle. Probably should have not had the mayo. I'm ok with it but between the mayo and the juicy burger the bun soon began to fall apart. No problem, they have plastic cutlery if you need it and lots of napkins. The burgers and sides are priced like a place that isn't a big chain fast food joint so is a bit higher. I got out for just over $12 but felt it was worth it. It sure doesn't look like much from the street, kind of a non descript strip center but the burgers are good.More
