    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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

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

    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.

    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!

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

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