What You'll Get
Despite the fact that they've never once contained ham, hamburgers continue to be referred to by their misleading name rather than one that reflects what they're actually composed of—wishes. Toss a patty down a well-opened gullet for two years of good luck with today's deal: for $3, you get $6 worth of hand-packed burgers, fresh-cut fries, and more at Hat Creek Burger Co. This Groupon is good for stop-in or drive-thru at the Burnet Road location.
Ordering off of the menu at Hat Creek is a heart-wrenching process in which customers have many Sophie's Choices to make. First, they must choose between a big-hat burger combo with fries and a drink (from $6.39) or a little-hat burger combo with fries and a drink (from $4.99). After invariably ordering both sandwiches and shuffling them together like a pickled pinnacle deck, customers must then determine if they would like cheddar, pepper jack, and swiss ($.30 each), plus bacon ($.75) and an additional order of fresh-cut fries ($1.99) to dunk in a Blue Bell cookies-'n’-cream malt ($2.39–$3.49).
Unlike most bridges in Texas during unexpected attacks from refrigerator robots, the patties and fries at Hat Creek are never frozen. Beyond its fresh-cut potatoes, Hat Creek selects hormone- and antibiotic-free Premium Gold Angus beef for every hand-packed patty and offers made-to-order, hand-pattied turkey burgers as an off-menu item. Its shakes and malts, blended from a foundation of authentic Blue Bell ice cream, turn hot summer days into hot summer days that contain slightly more milkshakes than fire demons. Buy extra Groupons for your favorite eccentric haberdasher and treat him or her to a tea-free tea party at Hat Creek Burger Co.
- I opted for the “Big Creek Burger”, which consists of two of their 1/5 lb patties. Burger was extremely juicy and tasty. Fries were great. All-in-all, a delicious burger combo. – Chris, Austin Burger News
- The sweet, fluffiness of buns. The juicy, just pink-in-the-middle bit of heaven. My jaw works, slowly, savoring each taste, forcing an excruciatingly measured pace that belies my desires inside. – Ryan S., Yelp
