Hopdoddy has found a formula that makes people willing to wait in ridiculous lines: all-natural ingredients (people love to feel less guilty about their meat sweats), relatively cheap food, and a modern but casual environment. Hopdoddy is arguably Austin's favorite burger shop, and they're on their way to building an empire, with several locations in Texas and expansion all over the country.
All that said, Hopdoddy is nowhere near our favorite burger in Austin. We’ve given it a lot of shots, and every time we’re underwhelmed by the meat sandwiches, especially given the waits. You won’t be mad about a meal at Hopdoddy, but it certainly isn’t as amazing as the line out the door might have you believe. Our best advice? Go heavy on the fries - they’re the best thing about the place.
There are many burger combinations to try out at Hopdoddy, from veggie to ahi tuna to bison to regular old cow.
