The breakfast here is worth trying. The omelets and refried beans were very delicious and the staff was attentive, friendly, and great.

My husband and I stopped in and had hamburgers and shared a large order of French fries. It's been years since we ate at Dan's, but they still make a really good old fashioned hamburger. I love the old fashioned diner style setting! Very enjoyable! The service is walk-up to order and pick-up and very fast!

Dan's made a name for themselves. Fran split off and did Fran's but Dan still has the best burger around. A local joint and not a chain so to speak. The place is packed at lunch and the burgers are some of the best around.

Dan's Hamburgers was close to our hotel and had a very high rating with Tripadvisor so we stopped in for a late supper. I ordered the small cheeseburger and my husband had the medium, dressed with mustard, lettuce, tomato, onion and pickles (ketchup is on the tables). We added a small order of fries that were crispy and good. The... More

Been eating here for years. Anytime I'm nearby and it's breakfast or lunch time.... I HAVE to stop at Dan's. Love their hamburgers and fries, their "diner" atmosphere and great service from staff that knows a lot of their clients by name. And breakfasts are super -yummy here, too. Lots of good choices! Good Coffee.... Great Service. It's not a... More

What a great return to Dan's Hamburgers on North Lamar. I live in Australia, and travel back to Austin infrequently, but MUST get to Dan's for a pure, solid hamburger. I had it with chees and jalepenos this time. Wonderful. How do they do it? Perfect combination of ingredients, and toasting the buns is great. Nothing better.

We've been going to Dan's for over 30 years and it's always consistent. I really like that you can get a small or larger burger and the fries are always yummy. Keep up the good work, Dan's!

We travel a lot but this place has the absolute best hamburger - hands down - of any restaurant we have been to. The meat is the real variety as opposed to the pink slime former governor Perry touted. It is well done with searing on the outside, but thoroughly cooked - really hot with melted cheese and everything one... More

Dan's is a great restaurant if you want quality food at a reasonable price. It reminds me very much of another great restaurant, Airport Haven, that used to exist in Austin from the sixties to about the nineties, but sadly no longer exits. Highly recommend!
