Hopdoddy Burger Bar’s north location opened yesterday to long lines and hefty appetites. Sports bar Cover 3, the incumbent on Anderson and Burnet for a wholesome burger, better cover its bases. Will there be a hamburger showdown? (Cue tumbleweed.)
So far Hopdoddy is doing well. From restaurateur Larry Foles about the eatery’s first lunch:
We had a line out the door for three hours. We were kinda in shock. We didn’t do any advertising.
The new location is open Mon–Fri from 11–10 and Sat–Sun 11 a.m.–12 a.m. Fortunately for South Congress lovers, the place has the same vibe as the original restaurant. Says Foles, “Same energy, funk, music, food.”
