Hopdoddy Cedar Park
Hopdoddy Burger Bar is opening its first Cedar Park location Nov. 4. The restaurant, located at 1320 E. Whitestone Blvd., Cedar Park, offers burgers, fries, milkshakes and more.

A grand opening celebration will take place Nov. 9 from 3-6 p.m. The event features live music from Scott Collins, giveaways and $5 drink specials. The first 100 people in line the morning of Nov. 9 will receive a voucher book that allows them to have one free burger a week for a year, according to a press release from the restaurant.

Founded in Austin in 2010, Hopdoddy serves all-natural meats, including beef, chicken and turkey. It also serves vegetarian options such as the Impossible Burger and fresh salads. A full bar offers beers on tap, cocktails, margaritas and more. Hopdoddy has 34 locations in seven states.

Damon Biggins, general manager for the Cedar Park location and a Cedar Park resident, said Cedar Park was a great fit for a Hopdoddy.

“The hunger for restaurants here is booming,” Biggins said. “There are some great restaurants here that I think we’re going to mix well with in terms of quality and accessibility.”

Biggins said no two Hopdoddy restaurants are alike, and the Cedar Park location has unique features such as a large patio, draft Deep Eddy cocktails and a spicy fried chicken sandwich not available at other Austin-area locations. He said while the bar is the central feature of the restaurant, it is important to note Hopdoddy is a “burger bar” not a “bar burger.”

“Folks come here for the food, and we have a full bar, versus Sixth Street, Fourth Street, people go down to drink and perhaps might eat,” Biggins said.

Music is a key theme of the restaurant as well. Posters of musicians line the walls. A portion of revenue from every Good Night / Good Cause burger sold at the restaurant is donated to the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians.

"We’re delighted to be here in Cedar Park," Biggins said. "I think we’re going to be a great fit here."
