Salt & Thyme - Considering this restaurant is attached to a butcher shop, you know they know their meat! The Butcher Burger is no exception--whatever meats are on the menu that day get ground up into an amazing burger, grilled to perfection with a side of fresh cut fries.

Casino el Camino–It's on every Best Burger in Austin list there is, so obviously they know their stuff: Fresh, local beef burgers that top out at a three quarters of a pound, with a variety of options to choose from (the Amarillo is my personal fave). I can also attest that they know their way around a hot dog, and their chili cheese fries have helped me quell more than one hangover in my past. Plus their bloody marys come adorned with so much food on top, that you may not even need to make a trip to the burger joint in the back. Casino El Camino is located at 517 East 6th Street in Austin and is open 11am-2am daily.

Hopdoddy - If the line curling around the outside of any of their three Austin locations is any indication, this place has possibly the most sought after burgers in town. My personal favorite is the Prime Time, a gorgeously high class tasting burger with brie, truffle aioli, and caramelized onions. Or, if you're feeling charitable, the Goodnight Good Cause burger will donate a dollar from each sale to a local charitable organization. Paired with one of their killer cocktails, it's definitely worth the wait.

Clark's Oyster Bar - Yes, an oyster bar can make an incredible burger. And during happy hour (M-F, 3-6pm) it's half price! The burger is a juicy hunk of Black Angus, topped with Sauce Gribiche and Gruyere. The crispy shoestring fries are the perfect accompaniment to this burger. And a few happy hour oysters, if you're into that.

Dai Due - Butcher shops know their burgers. If you're not in for supper club, definitely hit up their lunch menu for a taste of their Wild Boar Burger, with pickled grilled mushrooms, ham, mixed greens, red eye mayonnaise and asadero cheese on a cemita bun. Feeling the beef on a Tuesday? You won't want to miss their weekly Wagyu cheeseburger special with a side of tallow fries.

Swift's Attic - Their menu mainstay Bowling Alley Burger (house ground beef, melted fontina, griddled onions, fancy-ass special sauce, pickle spear, sesame seed bun) is legit, but if you want a real burger adventure make sure you're one of the first 18 people to order a burger on a Monday night and you'll be treated to the Bad Ass Burger of the week. Check out the Do512 page for this week's special!

Jackalope - Yes, we're sending you to Dirty 6 again. Yes, we promise it's worth it. No, I don't have a suitable picture, because maybe I was riding the dang Jackalope statue and forgot. Whether you're looking to create a solid base before a night of drinking (or help chill out mid-night) or actually sober enough to enjoy it, the Jackalope makes a mighty tasty burger. With options like Bacon and Brie, Mac and Cheese, or Honey Jalapeno Bacon, there's something for everyone at this popular bar.
