Austin Monthly’s Burger Bash 2024

I came. I saw. I burgered. All thanks to the Austin Monthly Burger Bash.

Yeah, this was a burger bash for the ages. Austin Monthly Burger Bash 2024 is exactly what you hope a burger fest should be. A line up of heavy hitting burgers all in one place. There was no way I could eat them all but here are the ones that caught my eye and tickled my palate.

La Plancha Torta Burgers at Austin Monthly Burger Bash

The Vitals:
the spot: La Plancha 701 E Martin Luther King Jr Blvd Unit 101, Austin, TX 78702
the eats: Torta Burger
the bucks: $15
the full nelson: The torta meets burger collab you have been dreaming about

I am a huge fan of Chef Mariha Hinojosa. Her humble torta shop goes far beyond a food truck torta and leans on her formal training at the Culinary Institute of America. But she still honors her South Texas roots. She made me one mean burger torta for Christmas last year too, with a tamale tossed on there too. Her standard burger torta, available year round ain’t nothing to sleep on either.

La Barbecue Smashed Burger at Austin Monthly Burger Bash

The Vitals:
the spot: La Barbecue 2401 E Cesar Chavez St, Austin, TX 78702
the eats: Smashed Burger
the bucks: $
the full nelson: Austin Food Magazine’s fav burger of the Austin Monthly Burger Bash

Over the years I have eaten my fair share of epic barbecue in Austin and beyond and while the names on my list might change, one place will never leave it: La Barbecue. Even before I waxed poetic about them on Best Thing I Ever Ate back in 2017 on Cooking Channel, they have always had a special place in my heart. Now they have a friggin burger and it’s meant to be a deal at happy hour.

Cuantas Hamburguesas

The Vitals:
the spot: Cuantos Hamburguesas 1108 E 12th St, Austin, TX 78702
the eats: The Americana, The Campechana, The Hawaiian, The Sincronizada
the bucks: $8 each(just shy)
the full nelson: Mexican Street style burgers from street taco king Cuantos Tacos

While the menu runs four deep, at the the Austin Monthly Burger Fest, they only featured the Campechana. And for good reason. The mix of smashed burger and aged chorizo aka Longaniza could be the most unique burger you will try this side of the border. And I didn’t even mention the chimichurri that’s tossed in the mix.

Texas Supply Co at Austin Monthly Burger Bash

The Vitals:
the spot: Texas Made Supply Co. check their instagram for locations
the eats: Smashed Burger
the bucks: $
the full nelson: The biggest Smashed Burger Sleeper in Austin TX

Guys I was fixing to leave Austin Monthly Burger Bash before the dude at Texas Made Supply Co hollered to try his burger. Apparently he saw my almost viral video of me and Jess Pryles reviewing burgers and demanded I try his.

Holy Sh*t does this guy know what he is doing. He smashes that patty as wide as a pancake and as thin as Carls Drive In, my gold standard for smashed burger patties. Every burger I eat from now on will be inferior unless it is at a freaking clothing and swag store that does burgers on the side.

And maybe they should be doing more than burgers on the side. That’s a wrap on the Austin Monthly 2024 Burger Bash. Now I’m off to eat another burger.
