I love P. Terry's, but not at this location. I don't know what it is, but this particular location always disappoints. I try to avoid this location, but there are a few times a year that it's inevitable, like last night. It was the only place within a five mile radius that was open late. We ordered cheeseburgers, Fries, and... More

It's dependable & cheap. The burgers are only so-so. The shakes are fine. The fries and chocolate chip oatmeal cookies are good. I didn't care for the chicken sandwich or the whole wheat bana bread or the lemonade milk shake.

P.Terry's is worth the calories! When you go order a shake and fries which are just delicious. Everytime I go I can't wait to go back!!

Not bad for a fast food burger. I think it was better than a big burger chain in Austin, that I was disappointed in.

P. Terry's has good food. The atmosphere is typical of California, so if you are a fan of that, you will enjoy it here. We were surrounded by hipsters, which wasn't surprising here in Austin.

If you just want a quick burger this place is OK. Nothing special. The fries are great though. Long line at the drive thru so my opinion may not be shared. I prefer gourmet burgers.

The quality of the PTerry burgers and chicken are outstanding. Fries and milkshakes are also excellent. Design your own combo including a lettuce wrapped burger or grilled chicken, sauce (their recipe), grilled or raw onions, tomatoes, pickles...yum! The owner has been at 2 of the locations I have visited in the last year busily working with his staff. I like... More

We had just gotten to my sister's apartment from the airport and our flight out of NYC. We were tired and hungry and NOT in the mood to head out to sit down restaurant before we made our way to our hotel to retire for the night. My little sister recommended trying P. Terry's which we could pick up and... More

Simple and good. Quick and easy. Love eating here when we need to only take a short lunch. All is good but I like the Chicken Burger the best.

This company has locations all over Austin, so we decided to give them a try. The locations are clean, bright and modern. The food menu is very limited and very similar to In and Out from the West Coast. Burgers were fresh and really well done, fries were made to order and very good. All around, we were impressed and...
