    Good clean tasting burgers

    Wholly Cow does a Paleo burger, with the beef patty sandwiched between two portobello caps and served sans mayo or ketchup. Read more

    Run away. It is so slow. Do not order. Proceed out the doors. Do not look back. Trust me.

    Mark Stephan · June 10, 2014

    Great place with great burgers! I will be back.

    Jennifer Kuhl · May 21, 2014
  • Jessica K.

    Ridiculously slow service. Like 20 minutes for a breakfast taco slow

    Jessica Klimczak · March 7, 2014
  • Christopher H.

    Pretty good!

    Though not bad, the burger seemed uninspired. The fries and Dublin sodas on tap were really good. But the burger was a bit of a let down.

    WAY better than Hut's!

    There's a gluten free dedicated fryer... thank you tiny baby Jesus

    You can never go wrong with the almighty reuben!

    Wholly Cheesesteak! Make it trashy. This sandwich was awesome.

    Kristen Walker · July 13, 2013

    The Hellfire Cajun Chicken Salad Sandwich is literally one of the most awesome things you can introduce your mouth to.

    Smells great. Nice atmosphere & 2 friendly guys to wait on you. Some vegetarian options.

    Jennifer Reiney · May 5, 2013

    Heavenly double with cheese

    Holly Crabtree · March 26, 2013

    I got queasy watching the workers touch all of the food (buns, toppings, etc.) without wearing latex gloves. It gets better: One dude had a gross bandage on his finger. I walked out.

    Kim · March 13, 2013
  • Phoebe V.

    Single trashy burger with an egg and frito pie

    Phoebe Venkat · March 12, 2013

    This place is one of the many awesome things about Austin.

    Udi's gluten free buns available

    A damned good burger for the budget-conscious carnivore who prefers meat not from some megafactory; Wholly Cow gets their grass-fed beef from Rocky Hill Orchards in Fredericksburg. Read more

    They take phone orders. I routinely call in orders for breakfast tacos.

    Travis Swicegood · January 31, 2013

    pretty good burger & the wait wasn't long at all. Staff was super nice as well. Good downtown burger, but not the best!

    Meghan Brindley · December 19, 2012
  • Courtney A.

    Open til 3 am! Come eat here after a night on 6th! Great food :)

    Courtney Anne · November 11, 2012

    Turn around, walk to the store, buy meat and buns, go home, and cook your burger. Trust me, it'll be faster.

    Kyle Bunch · November 6, 2012

    Tasty burger, gluten free buns, super friendly service. What else can u ask for?!

    Tim Falls · October 8, 2012
  • Justin D.

    Plan on a 2-hour lunch break. Are they cooking or meditating back there?

    Justin Dehn · July 24, 2012
  • Caleb E.

    Great breakfast options.

    Caleb Eubanks · July 24, 2012
  • Joel

    The food is excellent, the staff is Austin style friendly, i.e. not cheery but nice for sure. The speed of service though makes turtles seem reckless.

    Joel · July 23, 2012

    With only one stoner working the grill and everything written on paper, don't expect to get take-out quickly

    Trash your diet by making your Philly cheesesteak "trashy." That adds grilled peppers and mushrooms on top of your meaty and cheesy goodness. Read more

    They passed out organic peaches to everyone in the place. Very cool experience!

    alex hopes · May 10, 2012
  • Steve G.

    Ask if you can help slaughter one of the organic cows while you wait for your order.

    Steve Gorman · May 6, 2012
  • Christopher L.

    They take a long time to get the order out but worth it (usually)

    Christopher Lauzon · March 26, 2012
  • Sheryl

    Make sure they get your name. Otherwise people will steal your food.

    Sheryl · March 17, 2012
  • Jeff M.

    Super chill vibe! Staff is really nice and make great conversation. Get this food!

    Jeff MacDonald · March 13, 2012

    Up there with best burgers I've ever tasted. Grass-fed local Texas goodness. Wow.

    Bill · March 13, 2012
  • Sarah K.

    Just a single with American cheese was absolutely fantastic. Hand cut fries really good as well.

    Sarah Ksiazek · March 12, 2012
  • Elke D.

    No bun with the veggie bella bella burger!

    Elke De Pourcq · March 12, 2012

    I got upset when I took my last bite because the burger was gone.

    Adam Schmidt · February 21, 2012

    Sweet potato fries? Yes please!
