    Flippin’ Burgers Visit 

    Saw the sign for this place a few weeks ago, and found out it was open from some positive reviews on Urbanspoon.  The phrase “tater tots are made from scratch” had my interest piqued, not to mention in-house ground beef.

    The place is way up north at 183 and 1431 in Cedar Park.

    Got the combo meal.  The menu lists fresh made-in-house everything pretty much.  Burger was thin patty, griddled; cheddar available and procured.

    The purported Tater Tots® (registered trademark of Ore-Ida, inventors of the Tater Tot®) are tots in name only. They were more like “battered home fries” to me–small chunks of potato with some breading/crust.  So not even close to what I know as the Tater Tot®–cylindrical potato composites, à la Sonic.  So tot-lovers don’t be fooled, I wouldn’t call these tater tots.  They were tasty nonetheless, however I would definitely try the fries next time.

    Dublin Dr. Pepper on tap, as well as Maine Root Cola.

    All in all, a good burger with quality accessories.  It’s a bit far afield for me, so unlikely to visit again soon.  But if it were more convenient, I could see making it a regular stop.  Definitely need to get back and try the fries and onion rings.

      AVOID AT ALL COSTS! I went with a couple people from the office (1:15pm 10/3) and we bought lunch to take back to everyone. One of the ladies has a thing about soggy bread and asked if the meat could be wrapped separate from the bread with condiments on the side. She was told, “no, we don’t do that here’ (accompanied with an attitude). She didn’t understand the combo menu and asked a question, but was given a serious attitude and given a one word answer and I was surprised that his attitude was even worse. Personally, I was ready to just leave. We went ahead and ordered for everyone. NO ONE liked the food, not one. The bun was stale and greasy, the marinade was awful (and I love marinades), the onion rings were flavorless, the SPFries were limp and soggy.

      They were not busy when we were there. There was only one table that was eating. Two other orders (2 people each came in after us) and we only ordered for 6 people. No excuse. Will not give them another chance, will make sure I advertise for them. They are really pricy and I wouldn’t mind if the food was good and the ‘order taker” at least smiled and was pleasant and helpful. They loose on all points.

      My daughter and I had cheeseburgers, fries and a drink today.
      The Cheeseburger was $4.50, Fries, $2.00 and I’m not sure how much the drink was. I will not go back.
      The burger was pretty bland. They use sweet pickles instead of dill, which I didn’t like and the lettuce looked and tasted like kale.
      We ate inside and the ketchup tasted old, I’m pretty sure it’s been sitting on out for a while.
      The fries are so-so, but they have a seasoning that taste like onions and I HATE onions.
      And the drinks – the only “normal” fountain drink I saw was Diet Coke. The rest of the drinks are off-brand names that I have never heard of. I wanted Dr Pepper, and they had one that looked similar to Dr Pepper, but the name was in a different language? Anyway, it said “made with pure cane sugar” and it tasted kind of like a mix of Mr Pibb and Diet Dr Pepper – yuck.
      So, I felt like we wasted our money, but now we know, and so do you.
