Burger Tex
Austin Restaurants Page

Texas Monthly voted Burger Tex as #14 in its "50 Greatest Hamburgers in Texas" issue (August 2009). But as far I'm concerned, burgers here are the best you'll find in Austin - or anywhere else for that matter.

There are currently four Austin locations (see maps below) - 2 North, 1 South, and 1 Downtown in the UT area.

The Burger Tex Advantage

What's so great about burgers here? I've analyzed the question and came up with three components to burger superiority.:

  1. The Meat - Technically, Texas Monthly awarded the Bulgoki Burger (a sliced patty rather than ground and marinated Korean barbecue style) the #14 slot, but the seasonings are so perfect and delicious on just the regular USDA Choice Chuck Patties, that the basic bacon cheeseburger is a meal you won't soon forget.
  2. The Bun - A first class burger requires a first class bun. Here they're baked fresh daily and you're also given the choice of wheat buns as well.
  3. Condiments - A simple but brilliant idea: stock a condiment bar with fresh lettuce and a ton of other fresh condiments, including jalapeƱos and pico de gallo (it's Texas, after all), and trust the customers to build their own premium burger. For me, a world class burger is not complete without a ton of lettuce and plenty of onions.

Other Menu Items

Austin Restaurant Reviews - Burger Tex - Austin Texas
There are other menu items you also might want to check out in addition to the burgers.

There's actually a pretty extensive menu here that includes ribeye steaks, pork chops, catfish, shrimp, country fried steaks and chickens, cheese steak sandwiches (very good), and an assortment of other sandwiches, including a veggie burger.

There's also close to a dozen different sides if you ever get tired of french fries, including green beans, fried okra, and fried pickles.
