Dallas-based Twisted Root Burger Co. is taking another shot at Austin. The build-a-burger restaurant which got its start in Deep Ellum opened a location near the University of Texas location last year, but that experiment ended after about six months.
The new location is at 7211 Burnet Rd. in the former Hilbert’s space and in the same parking lot as TacoDeli. The restaurant is open 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday-Thursday and until midnight on Friday and Saturday. Those Austinites skeptical of intruders from the North should take note: Twisted Root, which is very popular in Dallas, was named one of the Top 50 burgers by Texas Monthly in 2009.
