    Known for the ultimate late night food-- 3/4-pound burgers. Each burger variety is named after your favorite city (Buffalo, Los Angeles, Chicago, etc.) and served with fresh-cut fries.

    Killer jukebox. Pool tables. Huge, juicy burgers. Psychotronic movies. Lounging with a post-apocalyptic flair. Casino keeps the best parts of dark and surly pub life alive and well.

    "The best burger in town." Juicy and tender, the 12-ounce monsters come topped with everything from cheese and thick-cut bacon to roasted Serrano peppers and Texas-hot buffalo sauce. Read more

    Guy Fieri heads here for some of the best burgers in town. Try the Buffalo Burger (coated in wing sauce, topped w/ blue cheese) or the Amarillo Burger w/ fresh roasted serrano chiles & cilantro mayo.

    Best burger in Austin. Walk to the back and order the Amarillo Burger and verde cheese fries. Take your time and enjoy a Shiner at the bar while you wait.

    Burgers are amazing. We tried 3 different type of burgers & every one of us loved them. Bloody Mary is excellent;. you can order them on a "hot" scale 1-10, 10 = the hottest. I got a 5, it was hot!

    Any burger. Any time. Chili verde fries are the best ever. I'm not a fries sort of person but get between me & these fries & i will happily slap your hand away. (Yes they are that good)

    At 11am felt like it was 11pm, it's dark inside and the music kick ass. Burgers are awesome but you will wait at least 30minutes, be patient it's worth it! FYI: Try to Amarillo if you like spice!

    Some of the best burgers and strongest drinks in Austin may be found at Casino el Camino. Buffalo burger? Amarillo burger? Try them both but not in the same sitting. Read more

    These guys make burgers out of anything beef, buffalo, armadillo the list goes on for miles. That said they do it best. You'll feel like a true red blooded Texan once you've had a burger and beer here

    Get the green chili sauce on your fries loved by all who enjoy a bloody mary. The quality of the burger is great here but the flavor did not blow my mind as a professional burger eater.

    Really really good burgers and good heavy music. If you're on your own don't order the burger with a separate portion of fries - you won't finish both.

    At night, Casino El Camino makes me feel like I'm in the belly of some kind of pirate ship. The Buffalo Burger is one of the best burgers in Austin. Also... jukebox.

    Perhaps resting on their giant burger laurels a bit, still the best jukebox in town, cool staff & usually a pretty damn good burger. Order at the back as soon as you arrive, tip the cook and smile.

    One of my favorite dive bars of all time. It's dark, they have a great jukebox, amazing burgers and full bar. Enjoyed alone or with a group. Can't recommend enough.

    The 'explosive' [buffalo burger] packs a lot of flavor and although the heat kicks, it doesn’t build up. Chili-smothered foot-long hot dogs are a worthy alternative. —WC http://bit.ly/NlI3mX

    I come in here on the weekends just for the bloody mary. There are 10 levels of heat and it comes with a slider, meatball, cheese, pizza roll, celery, olive, onion and bacon for 7 bux.

    Don't pass by them. This is old school Austin 6th street; A bar with personality. Get a good beer and some Tex-Mex food! Perfect for sobering up after the long crawl down 6th street.

    This has been my favorite burger place ever. Having not been here in 2 years, I forgot and my favored Hopdoddy. It was a reminder how perfect this burger place is. Seriously. Amarillo burger. Perfect.

    Best spicy hot buffalo burger in town and hottest bloody mary in the world if you can tolerate the loud punk music. Just don't go on a Sunday when this place smells like vomit.

    Amazing burgers & fries! Don't be put off by the decor. Just walk in & order. Excellent everything! Obviously everything is that good. This place is a winner.

    This isn't just the best burger in Texas, it's the best burger on earth. That's right, I said it. Chicago burger on jalapeño roll med-rare with fries.

    You have to get the Buffalo Burger. Don't let them tell you that "hot" is hot. "Hot" is hot but it's not that hot. For hot enthusiasts, go with "Explosive." Either way though, it's a damn fine burger.

    Friendly service, the wait for your meal is a bit long but it is definitely worth it! Take your time soaking up the atmosphere and a beer ;)

    The buffalo burger is probably the best burger I've ever had. The verde fries also great and the Bloody Mary's looked truly impressive.
  • Erik M.
    Buffalo burger FTW. Great vibe, music, staff and back patio. Pool tables solid too.

    Had the grilled chicken club. It was delicious. The chicken was moist and the bacon was crisp but not over done. The fries were crispy, but also thick. Excellence! (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    A word of warning on the Amarillo burger: it is definitely delicious, but the serrano peppers will give you a #redhotpooper the next day.

    The wings are good. The burgers are great. The beer is cold. The music is noisy. The everything is awesome. - Kellie, Community Manager

    Try the Buffalo Burger. Medium sauce was quite hot, can't imagine hot or explosive(!)... Explosive something for sure! #delicious

    Get the Amarillo burger on a jalapeño cheese bun with Serrano peppers. Your mouth will love you; your rectum will hate you.

    The Amarillo is still good, and the peppers sometimes hot enough to give me the hiccups, but I miss the old hand cut fries.

    Ask the bartender to make you his own version of the Manhattan with both sweet and dry vermouth - and RYE bourbon!!

    Award Winning Burgers! Expect a wait. A Typical Neighborhood Bar --if your neighborhood is dark, cool and twisted.

    The back patio is the coolest spot I've found in Austin so far...to have dinner. Do yourself a favor and sit out back

    Buffalo Burger. DO THIS. It's beyond good - though you'll wait an hour for it.. But just do the cocktail list in the interim.

    There are few better places to lay down a layer of food before a night of heavy drinking on the Dirty Sixth, and their burgers are a well-deserved Austin institution. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    Awesome food, but the wait sucked. 4 of us went, 1 got his food and finished before everyone. Then 2 of us got our food and when we were finished, the last person got their meal. Looooong wait.

    Long wait for burgers, but worth it. Amarillo burger is so spicy, it might be impossible to eat. My friend had it and she swore even her ear was burning up!
