    Uncle Billy’s is known for their award-winning beers, which are brewed in house, and their slow-smoked BBQ, but their burger deserves a little love too. They ground the brisket with bacon to form a patty that is full of smoky flavor.

    Before your start your night of drinking, it is always smart to coat your stomach with something that can soak up some booze, and the Peached Tortilla’s Japajam Burger has got your back (and stomach).

    The only downside to the experience is that Austin Java doesn’t do fries, so you’re going to have to pick between chips and salsa or a side salad (you win this one, health nuts).

    The kitchen at this co-op brewpub does a fine job keeping pace with all the delicious beer. They use locally sourced 44 Farms ground brisket to create a juicer, more flavorful burger that also gets a welcome tang from their house-made mustard.

    The Smokey Goat is a thick, juicy patty of ground beef (no goat?) covered with thick, crispy bacon, fried onions, and melted, full-flavored goat cheese (there it is!).

    Try the Navasota, which is a pork patty smothered in cheese, aioli, and chipotle sauces. It’s a mix of sweet and spicy that blends together nicely. Compliment it with a crisp IPA and know what it means to be happy.

    It’s a convenience store, it’s a bottle shop, and it’s a burger-grilling machine. Wholly Cow is grilling local, all-natural, hormone-free beef.

    This little food truck on the East Side is grilling up some serious heart stoppers. If you are feeling gluttonous, spring for their Spare Tire burger, a towering stack of two thick fresh-grilled patties, double cheddar, bacon, and fried pickles.

    Freddie’s Place is an Austin icon but, surprisingly, their burgers are constantly being overlooked. They are grilling up half-pound, all-natural Black Angus patties and piling on the toppings of your choice.
