    Hopdoddy North 

    Made it out to the hoppin’ Hoppdoddy’s new north location.  We got there early enough to avoid the crowd.  When we left, there was a line out front.  Burger was good, but nothing great.  All fresh in-house made stuff (bun, beef, even ketchup).  Maine Root on tap.  Hipster vibe.  Burger was good, but did not cross over into greatness territory.  Bun was too sweet.  Burger was too perfectly round (handled by machine?).  Lacked sufficient crust and beefy flavor.  Fries good!

    Agree with A Hamburger Today’s assessment for the most part.  Everything looks and sounds great, but it just doesn’t come together as one would expect to produce a stellar burger.

    Burger not bad…but should be “great”

    Hopdoddy Burger Bar Coming Soon 

    New fancy-pants-sounding burger place coming to South Austin.  Once again, outside my normal travel zones.  Story here on Austin360.com.  “Special burgers might include local cabrito or lamb, Perdido said, every burger using brioche-style buns baked in-house…The handmade approach will extend to fries made from Kennebec potatoes, ice cream for shakes, even special ketchup and mustard blends, Perdido said. Fountain sodas will use cane sugar rather than high-fructose corn syrup.”

    Sounds like it will be a quality venture.
