Good news for burger-lovers: Hopdoddy Burger Bar's first Fort Worth location will open on Aug. 21. The burger joint has gained a cult following in its three existing Dallas locations in Preston, Uptown and Addison.
Known for a plethora of creative burger topping combos and meat ground in-house daily, customers will also find Kennebec fries (including two versions with queso), and signature cocktails, some of which involve house-infused liqueurs like limoncello and triple sec.
The new Fort Worth location will be in the mixed-use Left Bank development, where more trendy eateries like MidiCi Neapolitan Pizza and Nekter Juice Bar have or will soon join its ranks.
Hopdoddy has locations in California, Arizona and Colorado, but it's Texas-grown. Founded in Austin in 2010, the majority of its locations are still in Texas. There are plans in the works to expand to more states soon.
The menu has no lack of tasty options for meat-lovers, including the lamb Greek burger, Ahi Tuna Burger, and, of course, lots of beef burgers. But, if you're hankering for something a little more herbivore-friendly, there's the La Bandita black bean patty and the recently-introduced Impossible Burger. (What's that? It's a vegetarian burger engineered to approximate beef as closely as possible. Read more here.)
Judging by the lines outside the Preston location when it first opened, the introduction to Fort Worth may inspire a similar rush, especially since it's the first day of school for many students.
