“Jewboy Burger” Austin, 2022

The next stop on my “Best Burgers of Austin” tour was Jewboy Burgers on Airport Blvd. I ordered “The Jewboy”, which is the basic cheeseburger, and I guess would be a good gauge of the burger menu. I loved it! The patty was grilled to perfection, with a bit of crisp on the edges. The potato bun was great, and the simple toppings of lettuce, pickle, and mustard let the flavor of the beef shine through. Really tasty!

I also ordered a side of crinkle-cut fries and latkes. The latkes were yummy, but the fries are what blew me away. They were perfectly crisp on the outside, yet creamy on the inside. These fries are maybe the best I’ve ever had! I don’t know if they are cut in the restaurant, or bought that way, but they really know how to deep fry them to perfection!

I’d rate the burger as an 8 out of 10, and the fries at a 10!

“Infusion with Bacon Burger” Austin, 2022

I’ve decided to check out some of Austin’s best burgers and the first one on my list was from Lebowski’s Grill at Highland Lanes bowling alley. Mariko and I shared the Infusion with Bacon, and a Buffalo Dude (substituting crispy chicken instead of beef).

The burger was large and messy, with plenty of dripping from the grilled onions, peppers, and jalapeno ranch. It was delicious! The bun wasn’t anything special, and the beef pattie looked like it came pre-made from the factory, but the taste was good, and went well with the toppings.

The Buffalo Dude was even bigger than the burger, with a hefty piece of chicken dominating the sandwich. If you like buffalo sauce, you’ll love this sandwich. We felt that it was a litte too much, though. The chicken was pretty good… not dry, and flavorful.

The fries were good. Nothing special, but they didn’t detract from the burger & fries experience.

I’d give the burgers here a 6 out of 10. Pretty good, but perhaps not enough for a special trip. It would definitely level up a night of bowling, though!

“Dinner Spread” Cedar Park, 2022

We have a few friends over for dinner tonight and I grilled some burgers, and Mariko baked the buns. I had bought some round-shaped cheese for burgers. I thought it was a good idea, but it just looks weird. Square cheese definitely makes for a better photo!

They still tasted great, though. 😄

Burgers for the 4th

“Loaded Burger” Cedar Park, 2022

Our go-to meal for the Fourth of July has to be burgers. And of course Mariko bakes some incredible buns, which really make the burger special!

Rounding out the meal were some seasoned fries and homemade pasta salad. It was a fantastic holiday dinner. 😄🇺🇸

“Pepito’s Mexican Burger” Fort Stockton, 2021

It has become a tradition to stop at Pepito’s Cafe for lunch on the way back from camping out at Big Bend, and now also Guadalupe Mountains. I’ve always gotten the Pepito’s Mexican Burger to quench my hiker hunger and it never disappoints!
