Dallas-based chain Twisted Root Burger Co. closed its second attempt at an Austin location last weekend. The Burnet restaurant held its last day of service on Saturday, August 12, as noted on Yelp. The website and specific Facebook page do not exist anymore either. The shutter was confirmed by a rep, who also shared that there are no future Austin locations in the works.
Twisted was known for its build-your-own burgers, with ingredients like fried onion strings, and kale pesto, potato chips, a whole bunch of cheese options, and various meat options from buffalo to lamb to rabbit. The menu also included a plethora of fried sides, from chips to French fries to green beans to pickles, along with milkshakes and salads. The Burnet shop even had a nine hole mini-golf course, available to customers who purchased milkshakes.
Twisted Root Austin first opened near UT's campus in April 2014, with plans for its second location on Burnet. The 26th Street spot closed quickly that December. The Burnet one opened in April 2015. There are many locations throughout Texas, as well as two in Louisiana and one in Alabama.
