Brugers, fries, milkshakes, BEER! Hopdoddy is here! Hopdoddy Burger Bar is an Austin-based restaurant specializing in burgers and craft beer. Their newest location opened yesterday, October 27th, next to Union Station in Denver.
I am personally very excited about Hopdoddy; not only is their food delicious, but they have 12 local craft beers on tap. And I love having good beer options when I dine out. I was impressed with the selection, as they had beers from Odell, Breckenridge Brewery, Oskar Blues, Boulder Beer, Dry Dock, Avery, and New Belgium.
Hopdoddy has a burger on the menu for everyone: Angus beef, Texas Akaushi beef, lamb, bison, chicken, turkey, tuna, and veggie. I stopped by for dinner last night (I had to go on opening day–I couldn’t wait any longer!) I ordered the La Bandita; as a vegetarian I appreciate a veggie burger that is made in-house rather than a portobello “burger” or a frozen patty of some sort. The La Bandita is a black bean-corn patty topped with avocado, goat cheese, arugula, cilantro pesto, and chipotle mayo on a whole wheat bun. My friend got the Greek Burger, which is lamb with Feta cheese, arugula, pickled red onions, tomato, cucumber, tzatziki sauce. And the fries…oh my. We opted for the truffle fries, which were to die for!
And of course I couldn’t resist trying one of their shakes. I was too full, but I just had to sample the Caramel & Sea Salt one. Amazing dessert! Everything was absolutely fantastic on my first visit to Hopdoddy. I will most definitely be back very, very soon! I need to try the chile con queso! And I highly recommend giving them a try: great food, nice craft beer selection, and friendly staff. Welcome to Denver, Hopdoddy!
