Food-centric website the Daily Meal has released its annual list of the best burgers in the United States, and Austin claims five of the 101 spots. The list was compiled by a panel of 70 experts from around the country. Coming in at #1 was the Black Label Burger at Minetta Tavern in New York City. Austin restaurants took the following places on the list:
88. Classic Burger at Hopdoddy
77. Double with Cheese at P. Terry’s
74. Hut’s Favorite at Hut’s
61. Cheeseburger at Parkside
34. Congress Burger at Second Bar + Kitchen
Two of those made my Top 12 burgers in Austin two years ago. See which ones here. And, for those who might take exception with that list, fret not, I am reworking it this summer.
