Burgers in Buda
Saturday me and Art were having a writing meeting for the title we are working on (Starting and Running a Restaurant, that's due out next year) when hunger pangs struck. Negotiations began, dealing mainly with who had eaten what the most recently. By a process of elimination, we arrived at burgers as the obvious choice, and with SXSW going on in ATX, heading to Buda seemed like the perfect option.
The Buda Grocery and Grill makes a spectacular hamburger, pictured here my mile-high double bacon cheese burger (with two layers of 4 slices each of thickish bacon). It's a double fister, and there'll be a puddle of juice in the bottom of the basket when you finish, not to mention what's running down your forearms. How much you ask? $6.29. A pittance for the massive size and the excellent taste. Order it with a side of frings, like I did. Admittedly, they are frozen, but of high quality and cooked perfectly. Budaburgers ROCK! The building dates from 1913, the staff is friendly as hell, and the food well worth the trip there..
