Looking for good grilled burger in Austin

cstrombe | Sep 6, 2006 05:52 PM

I'm familiar with most of the traditional Good Burger spots in Austin, but am hoping there are some I have overlooked. What I seek is a cheeseburger, for you old time Austinites, that is like the one made by the legendary (in my mind) GM Steakhouse that used to be on the drag (not the one on Lamar). They made the Perfect Cheeseburger: grilled 1/2 lb patty with a mound of sharp cheddar. The closest I have found is probably Houston's. That's a good cheeseburger. Any other places that fit the bill? Requirements:

*Burger must be grilled (not griddle-cooked, sorry Fuddruckers)
*Cheddar cheese must be available
*Burger must be at least 1/3 lb (no thin patties need apply, sorry Top Notch)
*Burger must be available medium rare (Chili's is out)

I have nothing against griddle burgers (Fuddruckers is good, tho too expensive) or thin burgers (love Top Notch), but I looking for something very specific here.

Thanks,
Chris
