Little Big Burger, the Portland-based burger chain, is making its Austin debut today, Friday, July 6, at 1630 East 6th Street, Suite 100. This is the chain’s first Texas location.
The burger chain is known for its very simple but high-quality burger menu. There’s the cheeseburger with cheese options like chevre, cheddar, or bleu; the classic burger with lettuce, red onions, and pickles; and then the vegan-friendly veggie burger. There are also skin-on truffle fries, and local beers and ciders.
Little Burger’s initial day will run under limited hours from 5 p.m. to midnight today, and then expand into full hours starting tomorrow, Saturday, July 7 from 11 a.m. to midnight.
The East Austin location is holding a free burger day on Friday, July 13, where the first 500 people will receive a free burger.
There are plans to open two more Austin locations of Little Big Burger by 2021. Local restaurant group Big Star BG is overseeing the Texas expansion of the burger chain.
Founders Micah Camden and Katie Poppe opened the first Little Big Burger in 2010 out in Oregon. It was bought out by Chanticleer Holdings in 2015, which also owns other burger chains and several Hooters locations.
Little Big Burger’s full hours are from 11 a.m. to midnight Friday through Saturday and then from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday.
