Hopdoddy | Gourmet Burgers

Hopdoddy is all about gourmet burgers + craft beer and cocktails. So naturally, we’re 100% in!

Hopdoddy’s all-natural burgers are made with meat ground in-house, freshly baked buns and are best served with a side of hand-cut fries! Are your mouths watering yet? Good! Ours are too, even just writing this and reminiscing on our fantastic, celebratory birthday lunch!

When we walked through the door right off of  McKinney Avenue in Uptown, Dallas, we smelled the sweet delicious smell of the buns baking in the oven! Started in Austin, Texas, we’re thrilled that Hopdoddy has not one, but two locations here in Dallas. Also, many of the Hopdoddy locations don’t have waiters, so it’s a great perk that the Uptown location is one of the few to offer full-service! We have to brag on their service as well, our waiter was fantastic and the manager stopped by our table as well to see how we were doing and if our food was cooked to our liking. Very nice people!

Hopdoddy prides themselves on using the FRESHEST available, all-natural ingredients. Their beef comes from humanely raised cows that are never given growth hormones or antibiotics. And perhaps most importantly, their burgers are absolutely drool-worthy!

Also, did you know that Hopdoddy offers some excellent healthy alternatives to its chili, cheese and bacon covered burgers?! 

If you’re wanting something on the lighter side, try out one of Hopdoddy’s healthy alternative burger protein options such as tuna (our personal favorite), chicken, low-fat bison, and black bean veggie burgers along with an impressive lineup of fresh salads!

Another option to lighten things up a bit is to add a burger patty to a salad for an extra protein boost or have your burger wrapped in lettuce instead of a bun if you’re watching your carb intake. All that being said, their buns are made fresh daily and taste fantastic! Well worth the splurge in our opinion.

Hopdoddy | What To Order

Speaking of splurges…. there are two things you MUST order when dining at Hopdoddy:

  1. Parmesan Truffle Fries with Truffle Aioli – The fries are hand cut from the famous Kennebec potatoes.
  2. Nutella & Chocolate Pretzel Milkshake – Our waiter told us that this shake is literally a gift from God and we completely agree! It’s literally the BEST milkshake we’ve ever had!

They offer tasty seasonal cocktails and currently are serving up a refreshing Paloma topped with rosemary! We heard that the next cocktail is most likely going to be a Cilantro Jalapeno Margarita. Yum!

We also tasted the Sangrita and Bubbly Blonde Cocktails! Both were great!

  • Sangrita: Gold Tequila, Freshly-Squeezed Orange and Lime Juices, Pomegranate Grenadine, Served on the Rocks with a Chile Salt Rim
  • Bubbly Blonde: House-Infused St. Germain, Lemon, Orange, Bubbles
