Hut's is a great burger joint... but at big city prices. I tried the #7: Hut's Favorite. The six-ounce burger comes on a standard-issue bun, and includes bacon, American cheese, and LTM. I loved it! Cooked precisely medium, juicy and hot, it ranks with the best of them.

Besides the 19 varieties of toppings, additional burger options allow for various substitutions: buffalo for $1.25, chicken for $1.25, veggie for free, a second patty for $2.25, or Texas Grassfed Natural Beef for $1.25. Selecting the Texas Grassfed creates a leaner and potentially drier burger, and recommended cooking times are reduced: med-well goes to medium, etc.

I ordered chipotle mayo for $0.50 and tried it on the burger and fries. Half fries and half rings, at $3.50, are an enormous basket. Mine had four rings, two of which were the size of softballs. The two small ones were bigger than baseballs. The rings contain coarse-ground pepper in the batter, giving them a spicy pop but, at least today, the onions were bitter. A sweet onion with the pepper bits and the chipotle mayo could have been heaven. The fries are GREAT: skin on, hand-done type, brown, and crispy.

Hut's has real fountain syrups (cherry, vanilla, and chocolate) to add to any soft drink choice.

Silky smooth and creamy.  A great way to spoil your appetite before the hamburgers arrive.

Hut's Favorite is the go-to item, and a great introduction to this spot: a six-ounce patty topped with just the right things.
