We originally visited Hop Doddy Burger Bar last year in their Austin location (click HERE for post). I was more than thrilled to hear they opened up a Houston location and was even more thrilled to be invited in to their pre-view party soft opening.
When you walk in you stand in line and place your order to which they hand you a number and bring your food to you once ready. It’s nice to see in the kitchen and the bar is centrally placed in the restaurant. I really like that they offer eco friendly cushions with straps as a booster seat for young ones.
My friend and I started off with a cocktail we got a Classic Frozen Margarita $7 (gold tequila, fresh citrus juices, house-made triple sec, served icy and delicious) and a Spacecitea $7.50 (house infused limoncello, deep eddy sweet tea vodka, raspberry puree, fresh squeezed lemon). I loved the spacecitea! It’s the perfect warm weather cocktail. The margarita was also really tasty.
For starters we got Chili Cheese Fries $6.75 and Truffle Fries $6.95. Honestly you can’t go wrong with either, but I would for sure order the truffle fries or you’ll be sorry you didn’t!
For the entrée burgers we both got an Ahi Tuna Burger $12.50 (Sushi-Grade Tuna, Sunflower Sprouts, Nori Chips, Teriyaki, Honey Wasabi, Mayo, Pickled Ginger, Red Leaf Lettuce, White Onion, Beefsteak Tomato). Holy Smokes is this burger good!! I probably could have eaten two! That honey wasabi is so good on the tuna!!
Since the kids didn’t eat we ordered a burger for the hubby’s instead. My friend ordered the Llano Poblano Burger $8.50 (Angus Beef, Texas Goat Cheese, Field Mushrooms, Mayo, Basil Pesto, Red Leaf Lettuce, White Onion, Beefsteak Tomato). I ordered the Prime Time Burger $12 (Texas Akaushi Beef, Brie Cheese, Truffle Aioli, Arugula, Caramelized Onions, Steak Sauce). I really enjoyed this burger. The onions are perfectly caramelized and I love the added brie with a hint of truffle flavor such a great combo!
You can’t leave this place without getting a shake! Nutella and Pretzel Milkshake $6 and Caramel Sea Salt Milkshake $6. Bot equally delish!!
Will I be back? Heck yes I can’t wait! For a higer end burger you get what you pay for here, packed full of flavor.
