Best Burger in Austin, Texas

I am about to make a very bold statement here. If you want to enjoy a good burger in a modern atmosphere, Stack Burger Bar is the place to go. From start to finish, I had a wonderful experience here. This place just opened a few months ago so business is still slow. However, I anticipate this place will be booming in the next month or two when word gets out. This restaurant is very inviting from the moment you enter. It is located in an old building that has been restored in downtown Austin on 4th Street. The ceilings are high and most importantly this place feels clean which is the opposite of most burger joints. If you want a hole in the wall burger joint, I recommend you go to Casino El Camino as this place maybe too trendy for you!
They have a great selection of specialty burgers and my "Arbor" burger was worth every calorie. The Arbor burger was made of beef, portabello, sunny side up egg, garlic aioli, arugla, parmesan tomato and balsalmic onions. 
My husband had the spicy "Southtown" burger (Beef, Jack Cheese, Avocado, Lettuce, Grilled Red Onion, Michelada Tomato, Red Pickle Relish & Poblano Aioli).
The fries are thin and crispy. I did not try their sweet potato or garlic fries but they looked equally as delicious as my regular fries. Also, there is a large selection of specialty cocktails and milkshakes which I highly recommend trying! I had the White Russian Smores milkshake which was to die for. The milkshake was made of vanilla icecream, kahlua, Famous vodka, charred marshmallows, chocolate flakes and graham cracker sprinkles. My favorite part of the drink was that is was garnished with a perfectly roasted homemade marshmallow. Amazing. My only complaint was at 12pm on a Saturday they were out of vanilla ice cream which I found weird. I substituted chocolate and it was still heavenly. 

While all four of the places below have great burgers, Stack Burger Bar comes in at number 1 because it is the total package. If do not want to smell like the restaurant when you leave (Casino El Camino), if you want to avoid long lines (Hopdoddy), and if you do not want to eat in the dark (Roaring Fork), then you will love Stack Burger Bar!
