South Congress, aka SoCo, is one of Austin’s liveliest neighborhoods, lined with restaurants and live music clubs, full of young people. We went to Hopdoddy despite the long line. You do three lines here, which can be annoying, but by contrast, gives you a lot of time to choose from the menu, and you don’t have to wait when you’re... More

Great burger and fries. Creative options. Craft beer on tap. Good service. A bit noisy. Like an alternative to a sports bar.

We stopped and got dinner here the first night in town. The bartender was great, not to mention he's from near where we are from, so it was nice to catch up on stuff like that. The burger was to die for. Best burger in town.

It is a fun austiny place. The lines are long and the food is good but the wait is a bit trying. You will probably see a friend there because everyone goes there. Atmosphere is loud but fun. The waitstaff is pretty good and fun. I hope the excitement drops off so people can go there and just enjoy it.... More

If you not been, then go. The line moves fast, so don't be afraid. A great beer selection and everything on the menu is great.

If you are looking for the best hand made burger, HOPDODDY is the best of the best. I have been several popular place. My choice is HOPDODDY. My favorite is the Diablo, which is hot due to pepper. Yummy!

We have never been to a Hopdoddys before and didn't know what to expect. The food is superb and a choice of different burgers but they are no run of the mill type. They are freshly prepared and obviously just moved steak with nothing else in the meat. There are a range to try and the fries are lovely. The... More

We went to the one on Anderson Lane with two kids 4 and 8, along with their Mom and Dad. Hopdoddy has an unusual arrangement, but the line forms at the door and remains outside, as the host allows folks to enter as the line shortens. By the time you place your order and pay, you are given a numbered... More

I love this place. The food is terrific, service is quirky and nice. My water stayed filled, my food served hot and my beer full. We arrived at 6:30 pm and had a 4 hour long business talk on a busy night. We were never pressured to hurry, leave or pressed for additional purchases. Even though our table was a... More

Great burgers, fries, shakes - even great bear on tap in an awesome atmosphere. The burgers are so well-cooked, perfectly-seasoned, better than any other I've had in years!

Thank Ronen A
