Hopdoddy Burger Bar

Hopdoddy Burger Bar has been around in Austin, Texas for a while now. Providing patrons with authentic burger options at a great price. The quality of the food is evident as soon as you step through the front doors of the place. There is an emphasis on quality here, and the owners have tried to make it as pleasant as possible to eat here. I got a classic cheeseburger on a delicious warm bun, competed with the added bacon.
The burger was hot and delicious, and served alongside sweet potato french fries. I'm usually not partial sweet potato french fries, but the flavor of these caught my attention. There was high quality to the food, and it was served quickly. If you aren't a fan of beef burgers, there is also a vegetarian menu, which has some great options. If you want a fresh bite to eat that is an American classic, then I recommend checking this place out.
