AUSTIN, Texas — After it was announced that Hut’s Hamburgers will close in October, the Austin community had a lot of feelings.
A lot of the feedback was focused on how sad it is that another Austin staple is leaving for good.
Going down memory lane, here are some other Austin burger joints that have closed in recent years.
Nau’s Enfield Drug
Nau’s, open since 1951, had to temporarily close the fountain and grill after being short-staffed. There is still no word if or when the soda fountain will reopen, but don’t worry: the drug store is still open for business
Late-night UT hangout Players closed its doors in 2014 after serving up burgers for 33 years.
This South Congress burger joint – recognizable because of its unique waitress statue on the roof – closed in 2013 after being open for 40 years.
But don’t get too sad! There are several long-running Austin burger joints that are still going strong:
Dirty Martin’s Place
Open since 1926, Dirty Martin’s is still serving up "Kumbak" burgers for the Austin area. It's located on UT's Drag at 2808 Guadalupe Street.
Open since 1973, Burger-Tex serves up chuck patties on white and wheat buns, made fresh every single day. It's located at 5420 Airport Boulevard.
With four locations throughout the Austin area, Dan’s has been serving certified Angus beef burgers since 1973. An added plus: they also serve breakfast!
Sandy’s Hamburgers has burgers, shakes and more since 1946. The stand is located at 603 Barton Springs Road, across from the Palmer Events Center.
Open since 1971, "Dazed and Confused" landmark Top Notch serves pure beef charcoal-broiled burgers seven days a week. Check them out at 7525 Burnet Road.
P.Terry's Burger Strand
P.Terry's hasn't be around as long as the others – the first stand opened up in 2005 – the restaurant has made a name for itself in the Austin area, serving up all-natural beef and fresh-cut fries. There are 16 P.Terry's locations across Austin, Lake Travis and San Marcos.
