Gardner may be a veggie-forward restaurant, but chef Andrew Wiseheart and co. know their way around beef, as evidenced by their list-worthy burger at sister restaurant Contigo. Gardner has gotten in on the burger fun and recently debuted a new happy hour menu that includes a cheeseburger made with two dry-aged beef patties, Texas cheddar, charred jalapeno mayonnaise, iceberg lettuce, onions, tomato and house dill pickles on a Pullman bun. It’s served with seasoned fingerling potato fries, a fried jalapeno and urfa mayo. The burger is only $6 during happy hour (5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. daily) through November and available only at the patio bar area (1914 E. Sixth St.). The happy hour also includes half-price bottles of wine and specials on select bar snacks.

Fellow East Austin restaurant Jacoby’s (3235 E. Cesar Chavez St.) has also rolled out its own burger special. The burger, which made my list of Austin’s best last month, is now sold for $10 at the inside bar at any time and on any day. The burger features a half-pound of dry-aged Jacoby’s beef.
