The Burger in the Hat

Yesterday we needed to go to the Domain so Mike could make an exchange at the Apple Store.  While we were there, we decided to get some lunch.  Walking around was really hot, but there were so many restaurants to choose from in the Rock Rose area.  We couldn't decide what we were hungry for, so we stopped at the first new place we saw, which happened to be Hat Creek Burger Company.  There are several locations throughout the Austin area, but it was our first time visiting.  This location had a slide for kids and really nice patio seating.  However, it was the hottest day of the year, so we sat inside this time.  After browsing the menu, we made our selections and ordered.   I picked the little hat burger with fresh cut fries.  Mike picked the 4 piece chicken flashers with fried pickles.  There were also 3 different sauces to try: a fry sauce, a mustard sauce, and a peppery sauce.  The food was really good.  My burger was tasty and not too big.  The fries were awesome and tasted great with the mustard sauce or fry sauce.  We didn't really care for the peppery sauce as much.  Mike liked his chicken flashers and fried pickles, too.   


We really liked the food here and would gladly come back again.  They also had milkshakes, but that seemed like a bad choice on such a hot day.  We look forward to trying those and more next time we visit.
