“Great Burgers and Fries”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

Not a fancy place but does have great thick burgers and good fries and a buffet table of comdiments that you can select from. The burgers are very good and reasonably priced. They also have steaks which are good and priced to please. If you are in a hurry, try this place and if you like burgers you will like it.

“Horrible Customer Service - Mediocre Food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

Well, after reading all the reviews, I am definitely not the first to experience this. The customer service has gone completely downhill as the Korean guy behind the counter strikes again. After being very rude as I asked him a question about the place. I went back to my seat, then stood up and took his picture. He stormed out from behind the cash register, yelling at me "I will break your f%#^@g camera" and bumped me in my chest with his. He then proceeded to call the police saying that I was trespassing. After all was said and done, the police officers informed me that I have every right to go downtown and press charges for assault. The food has also gone way downhill but the service takes the cake. I will never return there again. Sad to see such a good place from long ago turn out like this.

“Great Burgers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2012

Burger Tex is an Austin tradition. The burgers are excellent, as long as you don't mind some grease :-) The onion rings are as delicious. The restaurant itself could use a good cleaning but has a neat vibe to it.

“Best Burger in Austin”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2010

This is the best burger in Austin. Why? Because you make it yourself! The only thing they put on your burger is cheese if you want it, and then you go to the condiment bar and put whatever you want on there. So far we have only had the regular burgers, but next time I'm trying the Bugolki burger (Korean barbque basically). The one on Airport is the original and is probably the best. The guy that manages it is always there and is very friendly. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a quiet atmosphere with great people and a great burger.
