P. Terrys Burger Stand Ben White & South Congress
204 West Ben White (map)
Austin Monthly called us “Anti-Fast Food.” We like that. If we had to sum up our mission in a single phrase, that pretty much covers it.
The whole idea for opening a hamburger stand actually started as a reaction to reading the book Fast Food Nation. We were appalled by the direction the food service industry had taken. We decided that if we ever had the opportunity to start our own burger place, we’d do things the way they should be done. But it’s not just about the food. We wanted to change the way things are cooked, the ingredients, the way customers are treated, and the level of care given to employees.
“Anti-Fast Food” is who we are. Take a look around and, if you get a chance, stop by and let us know what you think.
