Where to Take Out the Best Burger in Austin

April 19, 2020

Updated September, 2020

Stay calm and burger on! You can still get many of the best burgers in Austin for take out or delivery and devour them in the comfort of your own living room while you #stayhome! I don’t know about you, but I’ve been craving all the burgers lately. I was reading through my guide of best burgers in Austin and was pleased to see that most of my favorites were still available.

I’ve put together a roundup of my favorite burgers in Austin that are available for take out. I hope you and your family are staying well and staying home. Please continue to wear your masks when you’re out in public for a quick run to the grocery store or at the trail for a walk. It’s up to each of us to contain the spread!

Scroll on down to my map for some drool-worthy shots! And scroll below the map for the roundup.

40 North Pizza

Ok you’re not crazy…40 North Pizza makes a mean burger! They’ve also got a Fried Chicken Sandwich on the menu that you’ll need to try, but first get the burger!

It is a classic in my opinion but better…extremely satisfying…you don’t feel like you’re getting jipped with a small patty or a dinky bun.

Get it curbside or delivery!

Sour Duck

Sour Duck’s burger is one of my faves. I mean, beer cheese…enough said!

Don’t share it. You won’t want to! You can get it for curbside pickup now too. Just check their website for days they’re open.

Not a burger fan? Prefer sandwiches? I got you – Where to Grab the Best Sandwich in ATX is for you!


Prior to Chicon (Contigo’s sister restaurant) closing, Chicon’s burger was something I needed to consume regularly! RIP Chicon but hello Contigo. Thank you for having an incredible burger on your menu that is so satisfying and perfect for just me to devour!

Pair it with some fried green beans! What a combo! I’m thrilled it’s on their takeout menu and they’ve got a few variations as well for you to try!

Soursop has consistently dished out fabulous creations out of their truck at St. Elmo Brewing. They’ve got the WATERBURGER on the menu with an all beef patty, melted cheese, Thai basil ranch and a waterfall slaw to cool you down just a tad. This one is so flavorful and freakin delish! Pair it with a Som Tam (papaya salad) for an excellent lunch or dinner that will have you going back again and again!

Get this for pickup or delivery and pair it with their epic tots if you can!

Hank’s Austin

Not all burgers have to be meat! I, historically, have not liked veggie burgers because they all tasted like bird seed. Enter Hank’s Veggie Burger that changed my tune so quick! It’s so so good…I rarely order anything else when I’m there. Packed with all the veggies, feta cheese and arugula on a gorgeous bun, if you haven’t given it a try yet, you’re missing out!

Oh, on Mondays, all burgers are 1/2 off even for takeout!

Gabriela’s Downtown

I was ecstatic when Gabriela’s reopened after being closed for about a month during the shelter-in-place orders. Not only do they have dang good choriqueso, queso, and tacos but they’ve got TORTAS! A hamburguesa chipotle torta AKA freakin’ delish burger! You MUST order it stat. It’s available for curbside or delivery!

The Cavalier

We’ve ordered from The Cavalier a handful of times since stay-at-home started and they’ve impressed us everytime. Good people, good food, good service! On Mondays they have BOGO, so their burgers are $6 each and that’s amazing! Order it for full price too though because their burger is one of my faves!

Better Half Coffee & Cocktails

For a solid burger that’s reasonably priced, Better Half is your spot! Early on when takeout was a new thing, they had their burger on happy hour! Even if it isn’t, it’s only $8 which is still a great price! Order their cauli tots too – I never pass those up!

Hold Out Brewing

Better Half’s brewery, Hold Out Brewing, is now open! They’ve canned several of their beers which are available to-go and pair nicely with their Hold Out Classic Burger. Y’all, the burger is delish! I especially loved the addition of their ‘comeback sauce’ and it’ll have me coming back for more!

A consistent staple burger spot with some of my favorite burgers the last several years is Hopdoddy. I’ve had most every burger on their menu and really love their chicken burger (Thunderbird) when I’m wanting a burger that isn’t beef. They’re doing takeout really well and you definitely need to stop by! Be sure to order truffle fries to go with your burger of choice!

101 by Teahaus

The new Seoul burger is so Seoul-ful y’all. It’s a double patty burger with Korean flavors and I legit squealed while eating it and hardly shared a few bites with my husband. Pair it with their loaded tots for the perfect meal! Pro tip: add an egg!

Jewboy Burgers

Jewboy Burgers has a brick and mortar off of Airport and they take online orders, so I totally took them up on that and ordered a Jewboy Burger, tots, and a bean and cheese burrito. EVERYTHING WAS SO GOOD! Their burger definitely deserves a spot on this list and in your tummy!

Bar Peached

Bar Peached is open for dine in and take out and their Social Burger is not to be missed! It’s oh so satisfying. Love the Peached Sauce, miso caramelized onions and Japanese pickles in this bad boy!

Buddy’s Burger

The newest addition to Austin slinging some dang good burgers out of their fast casual spot. Check out their drive-thru as well if you don’t wanna get out of your car. Be sure to order some spicy fries and a shake to wash it all down!

Don’t worry, this list will grow! But for now, these are at the top of my burger list in Austin and all available for take out. Stay tuned right here for new ones as their restaurants reopen.

Bon Appetite,
