Your Mom's is known for our stuffed burgers (Yes stuffed... with CHEESE) & fries that are fresh and hand-cut daily. We've also decided to expand our menu beyond burgers and offer home-style meals. All of our food is made from scratch... with love!
The Kahlo is overflowing with delicious. The patty is so big and there's so much in it, that it's tricky to get bites that include all of the toppings at once, but it's SOOOO GOOOD. The volume of food in their burgers make it easy to turn them into 2 or 3 meals of leftovers, if you can resist making yourself sick by overeating. One of these days, I'm going to plan a little smarter and split something with some friends so I can make room to try some of their sides.
I asked for the best burger turned vegetarian, and they suggested the Frida Kahlo -- the veggie patty is stuffed with cheese, and the burger is topped with a fried egg, lettuce, tomato, onion, guacamole, and chipotle lime. It was definitely a unique take on the veggie patty, which I appreciate. And apparently so did the Food Network. When eaten all together, the burger was great -- every taste in the right proportion. The toppings complemented the patty well. As I was leaving, I got to talk to Ryan, the owner, and he told me to come back to taste the veggie version of the Rockafeller, which he proclaimed to be the best. I'll have to taste for myself.
Oh. My. Gosh.
The Willie Nelson was amazing. It was the first time I'd had Texas Toast instead of a bun, so I was wary but the waitress assured me I'd enjoy it. The Norma Jean is your regular lettuce tomato onion burger, and was impressive. My daughter's Frida Kahlo was, according to her, interesting (she ate every bite). The fries were pretty darn good, fresh, hot, crispy. It takes a lot to impress me as far as burgers go, but this kitschy place has won me over. I had read about YMBB in an article, so I insisted my family go there over the weekend after a day of Barton Springs and boy oh boy am I glad we did.
Now this is more like it. Just a damn good no frills burger experience.
Your Mom's delivers a damn good Jucy Lucy style burger. Often times people try to imitate the Jucy Lucy with little or no success. Your Mom's does it very well. All the cheese is nicely pocketed inside the meat and it erupts appropriately when you take that first bite.
The bun, the toppings, and most importantly the meat, were all very tasty and delicious. The hand breaded beer battered onion rings were also pretty solid.
