Dog Friendly Sports Bar with Badass Burgers and a Patio
We started a burger club at work, well… scratch that. We started the idea of a burger club at work, and on that list was Black Sheep Lodge. Known for their wide selection of beers, and some of the best burgers in South Austin (between Kinney and Oxford.) This was a place that I had heard about, and driven by countless times to what always seemed like a full patio.
After weeks of delaying, we decided the weather was in our favor, and the call of burgers on a Friday afternoon was too easy to to say no to. So we piled in my car, and made our way to South Lamar on our first burger club quest.
We arrived around 11:30am and the patio only had one other patron, but it didn’t take long before groups of people began piling on to the patio as we watched the busy street pass by.
They have an awesome lunch menu where you can get a 1/4lb burger with side for like $6. And if you want the 1/2lb you can do so for just $7.50 (but that’s always the price!) Their menu is traditional bar food with friend pickles, queso, and corndog bites.
And of course because we were there on a burger mission, we each went with a burger. One 1/2lb with tots, one 1/4 with fries, and a chicken slider (lunch menu) with tots. Which you can and should order with one of their homemade sauces that are made from scratch daily like jalapeño aioli, curry ketchup, chipotle mayonnaise, or beer mustard.
The burgers were good. And for the price and the atmosphere I can’t really fault them. The meat was seasoned very well, mine was just a tad overdone, so next time I’ll ask to get it a little juicier.
The tots were spot on, fries were some of the best I’ve had (I like the crunch they had!) and with 26 beers on tap there are a few reasons why you should check Black Sheep Lodge out. So now I’ll give you seven more. They have daily specials, every day of the week!
