Construction is underway on the new P. Terry’s at Capital Plaza next to Target. The burger chain's distinctive frame, designed by architect Michael Hsu, was erected just this month on 5701 N IH 35. This location will include a drive-thru and outdoor patio, much like the others. It was originally slated to open sometime last year.
Proprietor Patrick Terry spoke with Eater Austin last year and counted this location among those he’d hoped to have completed by the end of 2015. This will be the 13th of a projected 14 total Austin-area locations. The final location, according to Terry, will eventually be found farther north on 183 at Market at Lake Creek.
Patrick and Kathy Terry opened the first P. Terry’s in 2005 at the corner of South Lamar and Barton Springs, staking the brand on a commitment to all-natural beef and chicken and other fresh, all-natural ingredients. There are currently no plans to expand outside of Austin.
Update, 2:30 p.m.: According to a P. Terry's representative, the Capital Plaza location, which should open this summer, will function as the chain's flagship store:
This feeling comes from its visually striking architecture and its placement, visible to around 200,000 passing vehicles a day.
