Austin Hamburger Stories

There is a hamburger joint on South Congress called Fran's. There are also some Dan's Hamburger joints. Word is that once Dan and Fran were a couple and after the split some Dan's became Fran's. And, I guess, with the change came the guitar-toting large plastic girl for this shop. The girl was damaged in a storm in 2006 but was restored.

  1. Been to Dan's numerous times. Never to Fran's. Am I missing the better burger?

  2. I'm not really a burger expert. I eat one at Dirty's occasionally and eat the vegetarian fare at Billy's on Burnet.

    This photo does remind me of Kip's Big Boy restaurant chain. Used to be big around here. Miss it a lot.

  4. I loved Big Boy burgers as a kid. And the cheesecake dessert.
