Capsule Review

Hopdoddy, the wildly successful Austin-based burger group, has opened its long-awaited Woodlands location. Diners flock to manageably-sized signature burgers, with a variety of chef-designed toppings. Beef is a custom grind, buns are made in house, and toppings and sauces are created by their executive chef. Vegetarians and the gluten sensitive aren’t left out – specific options exist for both. Fries are cut in house and very good; they sweat the details and use the correct two-step cooking process that’s recommended for fresh cut fries. Comfortable location with a large patio, ample parking.

About their Burgers

Burger are the focus at Hopdoddy, and the results do not disappoint. We’d suggest starting with one of their signature burgers; these topping-rich creations are what made the restaurant famous. We devoured the Double Bacon Jam burger, a unique construction of dual 4oz patties, white and yellow American, tomato bacon jam, and mustard grilled onions. It’s a great introduction to Hopdoddy.

But what if you’re a burger purist, and don’t love topping-laden burgers? Your friends at TWTX.co discovered something you need to try.

Purists should try this approach: Use the stellar Primetime patty (made from a different custom grind than their regular, very good patty) and dress it your favorite way. Perched atop the housemade bun, it’s a standout cheeseburger that is sure to satisfy the burger purist, and it earns Hopdoddy a spot on our Recommended Burgers list. It’s a $3.50 upcharge, and well worth it.

Insider Tips

Hopdoddy is known for it’s topping-laden signature burgers; they’re very good.

But burger purists should consider jumping right to Primetime patty, a signature blend that differs from the standard (and very good) patty. Not because it’s larger (it is, at 8oz vs the regular 6oz patties) but because the custom blend of different cuts of been is both juicer and more flavorful. We used this patty to create a very good basic cheeseburger; this purist approach results in a very satisfying burger.
