    Don't waste your money at in-n-out... This is the cheap & delicious burger you want to eat. Get a double beef and add a chicken patty and Swiss cheese with lettuce wrap to create the tri-beast

    A great place to get a cheap, low-carb meal if you replace the bun with lettuce. I ate here every day for a week and never got sick of it.

    At first bite, not in love w the veggie burger - but, it is fresh made and with some jalapeños and extra sauce or ketchup, pretty darn good. Fries are reminiscent of InNOut.

    Omg I eat here practically every day! A great thing is that they make their own lemonade and use organic ingredients unlike other burger places. It is actually healthy fast food.

    Grilled Onions and Jalapeño Burger: Quoted as the number one burger in Austin, this piece of meat is topped with grilled onions, jalapeños and a generous amount of melted cheese. Read more

    First time here. We almost left because we didn't see any seating as we were leaving we noticed the little park area with seating and a sand play area for the kids. We will eat hear again.

    Wanna know how to make their burgers delicious? Double meat, double pickles, double mustard... then take it home and add Tony Chachere's in between the patties. Di-vine!

    It's not Shake Shack or In-N-Out, but it's as close as you're going to get (for now) in ATX. The cheeseburger is legit, and fresh lemonade or a double chocolate shake is a good way to top it off.

    P Terrys might be the best drive through burger sandwich joint. The veggie burger is good. The fries are good. Priced well too, at or below competition.

    You can take yr food across the street to House Wine and have a burger with a beer or a glass of wine! Also the coffee at p. Terry's is outta control good! Secret exposed; the "P" is for "Patrick" ;)

    Breathtaking quality. Outstanding in every way. The fact that these burgers are not quite photogenic is the perfect poetic counterpart to their immense inner beauty.

    The ethos of this chain is somewhat atypical: small menu, locally-sourced when possible, no freezers, open kitchens, fresh cut french fries, pay above industry average, and no franchising whatsoever.

    I want to love this place, and when they get it right, it's great. Sadly, of the last 5 burgers ordered here, not one has made it home as ordered. Three of them straight off the menu as described.

    Extra cheese on burgers, special sauce and fresh baked cookies and banana bread, fresh squeezed lemonade.

    Arnold Palmer is the drink to get on a hot summer day - half lemonade, half tea equals one fabulous thirst quencher.

    My favorite veggie burger in town. And the fries are freakin' amazing: They cut them really thin and cook them a little longer.

    Picnic tables are a great place to enjoy your burger and avoid the long drive through line. Watch out for crazy grackles and pigeons!

    Special Sauce is the best thing in the world. Get it on the side and dip your fries in it.

    Some of the best munchies food you can get. Be sure to grab a shake with your order

    It's not unlikely to see the REAL P. Terry taking your order or bussing tables, so be on the lookout while you order one of their killer burgers.

    A less expensive option for local food close to the convention center. The meat is Happy Meat, the tomatoes are always local, and nothing costs more than $7.00.

    Cheap but overrated. Opt for the chicken sandwich or veggie burger instead of the burger. Lemonade is good and worth it
