Hut's Hamburgers

While working in Austin, Texas in 2009 I ate quite a few hamburgers. Quite a few, but none better than I had at Hut's. First off, my love affair with Hut's began with the exterior. It has the look of an old gas station/cafe, well-worn but well taken care of. Once past the screen door, you take in a counter and some beautiful neon and that Roadfood knick-knacky decoration that has been around for years.

Peruse the menu, but while you do, enjoy a ice-cold Shiner beer and savor your surroundings. The burger list is extensive and you can order one of the specials, but for me I just list the ingredients I want to see on my burger and the waitress is off.

I ordered the Hut's grass-fed longhorn burger, bacon, cheddar cheese, lettuce, pickles, and onions with mustard AND ketchup. It arrived back at the table cooked to a perfect medium-rare, making the longhorn burger pure nirvana for me. I had it twice as a single patty, I had it as a double patty once, and always, it was perfect.

I like the half-and-half onion rings with fries to mix it up and both are delicious, never greasy, and fried to perfection. The onion rings are those big, Texas-size rings that you could almost make a meal out of, but don't do it! Get a burger to go with and you won't be disappointed! Wow. I wish I was there right now!

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.
