Construction broke ground on the Hat Creek Burger Co. Georgetown location at the corner of Austin Avenue and San Gabriel Village Boulevard in early June.

Hat Creek Burger Co. owner Drew Gressett said the burger restaurant is expected to open in November or December.

“We’re excited about Georgetown,” Gressett said. “It’s going to be a great store, and this site couldn’t have worked out any better with the orientation of the river.”

The restaurant, which is located across Austin Avenue from the Two Rivers Apartments complex and situated near the San Gabriel River, will include a 3,400-square-foot building and offer outdoor dining and a play area for children.

Gressett said the site will be similar to the company’s Westlake location. Hat Creek Burger Co. also has a location on Burnet Road and a site on The University of Texas at Austin campus.

“I think Georgetown and Westlake are both family communities. [At] Hat Creek, we are trying to provide [an] atmosphere and concept for the family. I think from that standpoint, [Georgetown] is a great fit,” Gressett said. “We’ve had success in Westlake and felt that Georgetown needed a great family-friendly spot where they can have a beer and a burger and allow kids to run around while parents have an adult conversation.”
