(Fuego's) Best Burger In Austin - My Search Is Over

cheesy_rice | Dec 11, 2008 10:28 AM

I just ate what I am going to call the best burger in Austin. It was the "Fat Burger" at Fuego's on South Lamar. I'm no stranger to Fuego's... I've been part of a small group that has eaten there on and off over the last year or so. Everything I've had there has been from very good to excellent. I could go on and on about pretty much the entire menu. But, today I only want to talk about the "Fat Burger". It was THAT good.

I still have much respect and love for Dirty's, Nau's, Ski Shores, Casino El Camino, and most recently Mighty Fine.... those are all places you can find very good burgers. But, as for me, at this moment... none of them come close to this new found love of mine known as The Fat Burger.

This thing is a MONSTER of a burger. It seriously does take both hands to eat it and I guarantee you're going to want some extra napkins. It's not a burger for the faint of heart. However, the reward is well worth the effort required.

Simply put..... this was easily the best burger I've yet to eat in Austin and perhaps anywhere in my life.

I can't wait to be hungry again!
