Austin's burgers might not ever be as closely associated with the city as tacos or barbecue, but there are still plenty of options both old and new to celebrate, available in the city right now.
With that in mind, here is Eater’s guide to the city’s essential burgers. There are beloved upscale cheeseburgers from Salt & Time, the cheesy meaty dry-aged wagyu cheeseburgers from Dai Due, fast-casual takes from P. Terry’s and Dan’s Hamburgers, brisket-based ones from LeRoy & Lewis, vegetarian options, and much more.
