It’s no secret that we are big fans of locally-grown Hat Creek Burger Company. They really get it when it comes to making things family-friendly — from their playscapes at every location, to online orders with drive-through pick-up for parents on the go, gluten-free, vegan and low-cal options, fundraisers for schools and community groups, pajama pancake parties, and more! *Scroll below to enter to win a $100 gift card to Hat Creek!

Hat Creek Burger Company originally started with humble beginnings by Austin dad and former Longhorn, Drew¬†Gressett and partners who opened it as a food trailer on 6th Street. Hat Creek moved on from the food trailer business and expanded with four restaurant locations (Westlake, Burnet Rd., Georgetown, and Round Rock). But wait ’til you hear where they are going now…

Later this month, we’ll see a brand new Hat Creek in the Domain’s Rock Rose area (corner of Rock Rose Ave. and Esperanza Cr.). At this newest location, we’ll find also find a new type of outdoor play space for kids! With a nod to the company’s food trailer origins, an adorable mini camper will be included in all future Hat Creek restaurants, giving young kids a very cool little area to play in.

Additionally, we can expect to see a new Hat Creek in Lakeway in April! And they just broke ground on their first location outside of the Austin area in McKinney, TX, giving Dallas area families a new place to go. And we’re hearing rumors about possible locations popping up in Buda and Dripping Springs!
