Here is how to skip the fast-food line this week and find your new favorite burger locally. With unique flavor combinations and out-of-the-box bun substitutions, these spots will surprise your taste buds.

The Downtown Hall of Fame

Its selection of specialty burgers made with hand-pressed local beef patties includes the fried mac and cheeseburger, spicy Hawaiian burger, habanero bacon cheeseburger, and jalapeno popper burger.

205 East St., Hutto. 512-642-3624. www.thedowntownhalloffame.com/

Pecan St. Station Deli & Grill


The original burger is a fan favorite, but other options include the bacon, mushroom and swiss burger, or the flaming bacon cheeseburger: a quarter-pound burger with crispy bacon, jalapenos, and American and pepper jack cheese on a toasted jalapeno cheddar bun.

1005 W Pecan St., Pflugerville. 512-251-0296. https://pecanstreetstation.com/

High Country Market Bistro & GastroPub Burger

Freshly made pretzel buns, and black truffle and rosemary ketchup make these gas station burgers some of the most raved about in town. The Wagyu burger is one of the most popular items on the menu.

3701 Gattis School Road, Round Rock. 512-827-7786. https://highcountrymarket.com/

Snuffy’s Bar & Grill

Add guacamole and bacon to the classic Snuffy burger, or try the Pigburger: a hand-pressed burger topped with a slice of grilled country ham. Make it a platter to add french fries or homemade onion rings, and a pickle wedge.

204 Hwy. 79, Hutto. 512-846-1084. www.facebook.com/snuffys.place/

Y’all’s Down Home Cafe

The fat Tuesday burger’s beef patty is fried in buttermilk batter and topped with lettuce, purple onions, butter pickles, mustard and ketchup. Also noteworthy is the down home burger, made with meatloaf ingredients and extra seasoning.

2000 S. I-35, Ste. G-1, Round Rock. 512-243-8014. https://eatatyalls.cafe/

Hippo Cafe

The Gooooood Morning Hutto burger is an angus beef patty grilled with an over-easy egg and topped with applewood bacon, American cheese, lettuce, tomato and mayo on a sourdough bun. Forget regular buns, because the Taste of France burger comes on a flakey croissant, the John Wayne burger comes on Texas toast, and the Big Hippo burger is served between two house-made doughnuts.

109 E. Front St., Hutto. 512-759-3729. www.hippocafe.com/
