      The best-burger-in-Austin debate kicks up more dust than a West Texas tornado. Even suggesting something on the topic spurs heated debates amongst family members, and some of the nastiest comments we’ve seen on our Facebook page.

      Hopdoddy however, always seems be in the conversation, and it’s definitely one of our favorites.

      On January 18th, the Austin-born burger bar will open its third area location in Round Rock. Coincidentally, it’s also MLK day, so if you’re looking for something fun to do on your day off, get there early and be one of the #first to try the new location.

      Pro-tip: Seating at the bar is first come first served, so if you’re solo, or a party of two, you can often skip the line! Don’t forget to tip your bartender for the privilege.

      When: January 18th at 11am

      Where:
      Hopdoddy Round Rock
      2800 N. I-35

      For the fourth installment of 365 Approved we venture down West 5th Street to the seafood and southern mecca that is Liberty Kitchen. We’ve found ourselves dining their more and more frequently over the past few months, and still haven’t found an item on their (extensive) menu that we don’t absolutely love.

      For an in-depth look at our first experience at Liberty, click here. Or read on for what’s happening at the restaurant NOW…

      They recently launched a happy hour that includes 50 cents off (shucked at the wet bar) oysters, 1/2 price burgers, wine/beer/martini specials, and a whole lot more. They even offer a few specials on weekends! See the full Happy Hour Menu.

      Their building also has ample FREE covered parking, so it’s a great, stress-free place to stop by on your way home from work.

      In addition to happy hour, Liberty is now open for lunch seven days a week. They have really great daily specials, possibly the best mac n’ cheese in the city, and perhaps equally important for a weekday lunch, GREAT PARKING, which has become a commodity in Austin!

      Lastly, Liberty spreads an amazing brunch on Sundays AND Saturdays, as well as holidays. It runs until 2:30pm, and one can find both sweet and savory options on the menu. Including the amazing Cajun Chicken and Waffles pictured below.

      This week’s 365 Approved trailer takes one of America’s favorite sandwiches, the grilled cheese, to a new level.

      The motto at Burro Cheese Kitchen is simple: “We love good cheese. We love good bread. We love to apply fire to good cheese and good bread.” They use great cheese, excellent bread and make their sauces in house, which makes for the ultimate sandwich combination.

      You have two options. You could go with a sandwich already on the menu. It just depends what your mood is because they have several different takes on grilled cheese. Like many things in life, I prefer to go big or go home, so the Croque-Madame is a personal favorite. Sourdough, smoked ham, gouda + pesto aioli- all topped with a fried egg + dulce de leche, makes for sandwich heaven.

      If nothing on the menu jumps out at you, you can have it your way by making your own crazy combination. Make your call with the choice of bread, cheese, sauce, meat, and veggies.

      Don’t take our word on this grand slam of a sammie. Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Cover Model and local Austinie, Brooklyn Decker has instagram-ed herself enjoying “the best sandwich she’s ever tasted.”

      Aside from their regular locations, be sure to look for them at ACL, FFF Fest, Trail of Lights, and F1 this fall.

      Burro Cheese Kitchen sandwiches are truly an art form. They’re definitely not the Kraft-cheese sandwiches you had as a child, and these masterpieces will change the way you think about grilled cheese.
