Good news for fans of Your Mom’s Burger Bar, which shuttered in 2014. Owners Ryan and Gina Blackmore are bringing their comfort food to a full restaurant in Smithville, now open in the historic building at 109 NW 2nd Street.
The newest incarnation of Your Mom’s restaurant is more than a burger bar, though the famous stuffed burgers are on the menu. The restaurant is also serving pot roast, pulled pork sandwiches, milkshakes, and pie, with drop biscuits and more desserts on the way.
Your Mom’s Burger Bar had quite the wild ride in Austin. The restaurant first opened on Cesar Chavez in 2009 and expanded to Oak Hill and Airport Boulevard. It shuttered all the locations in favor of meal delivery service, and finally tested the waters of the food truck world. In November 2016, Your Mom’s announced a cafe and market coming to Smithville. After delays thanks to Hurricane Harvey, it finally opened this month.
Statesman reported that Blackmores were driven out of Austin due to rising costs and the pressures of raising small children. Now that the children are older (their 17-year-old helps with front-of-house), they are looking forward to working together. Your Mom’s is open Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and on Sundays from noon to 9 p.m.
