Description: Kathy and Patrick Terry opened the first P. Terry's on July 5th, 2006 at the corner of South Lamar and Barton Springs. Patrick was following his childhood dream to open a classic burger stand, like the legendary Mack Eplin's he grew up with in Abiliene, Texas. But when Kathy read the book "Fast Food Nation", their plan to provide quality food and service went to a higher level. P. Terry's offers the freshest quality ingredients you can find served out of a drive-thru window. We're where fresh, all-natural, "never-ever" beef and chicken became staple items. We serve fresh-cut fries made from all-natural potatoes, free of trans fats and hydrogenated oils. Add to that our fresh-baked cookies, banana bread, and house veggie burger; our fresh-squeezed orange juice and lemonade; and our authentic milkshakes - we care about what's out there to eat, and we make our food with that in mind. But we didn't forget Patrick's original image - the classic burger joint of the '50s and '60s, when small-town hospitality was the standard. That's why we offer a simple menu with an open kitchen, with premium quality ingredients served at affordable prices. It's why we treat every customer with utmost respect; take every chance to give back to our community; and ensure our employees' well-being - through opportunities to grow with our business, access to unique benefits, and pay above industry standards.

Tasted like a homemade burger vs. the fast food variety. Don't miss having a milkshake! Service was quick and orderly and food was tasty! (It was packed! We weren't the only knows enjoying this place!). There was even a sand box outside for the kids. (Located discreetly if you weren't in the indulgent mood)

P. Terrys is consistently good -
I really like the chicken burger and add jalapeños.
On a hot day you can't beat their lemonade.

Try the Lakeway store for one of the best views in Austin. Just burgers and fries. Way better than In/Out Burgers in California. Even my grandboys love these burgers.
