Brad's Burgers in Lampasas serves one of the best burgers I've ever had. Brad grinds his own meat fresh every morning. It's then hand formed into about 1/4 pound patties and grilled to order. They're griddled burgers, crisp and crusty on the outside and juicy on the inside and they're incredibly beefy. The buns are plain white but fresh, the tomatoes fresh, the iceberg lettuce and onion are chopped and the cheese is american. I had a single but wished I'd ordered a double. The downside of the menu is that the fries are frozen.
It's a weird place. It looks like it was cobbled together out of parts from a long dead Sonic and there is no inside seating. It's manned by Brad and one other guy, but they are able to keep pace with the orders. It's on Sixth Street, across 183 from the big HEB and behind and across the street from Sonic.
