    I'm going to be in the great city of Austin soon and have heard good things about this burger joint.

    Is it a "must visit" place as far as burgers go?

    No. Better burger at Dan's IMO.

    To me, P. Terry's is like Taco Bell. Once in a while I get a craving and have to have it.

    Dan's, Fran's, Mike's Pub...if my heart wouldn't explode, I'd eat at any of those every day.

    P. Terry's is hit or miss. I suggest The Tavern (Lamar at 12th). For other suggestions, check out The Link.

    100% worth it for the chicken burgers. The hamburgers are weak though.

    Forget that, name at least twelve. I'm always up for trying good burger joints.

    Good list. I've had most of them, and like them all pretty well. I'll give the rest a try.

    that's pretty good list above, although i would remove phil's/tavern/hill's because of the terrible buns, and would add billy's on burnet, the frisco, black sheep lodge, houston's, and dirty's (it has slipped but is still miles better than pterry's)

    Completely disagree with you on Phil's buns, the jalapeno cheese bun is greatness.
