Y'all!! First of all, this place is BOMB but let me give you a full review before I start lusting! So, on yesterday (Wednesday, March 28, 2018) I had the opportunity to attend a community mixer for Hopdoddy Burger Bar and could even bring one guest! I decided to take one of the toughest critics I know, my mom! The mixer gave those in attendance the chance to preview the menu, atmosphere, and staff of the restaurant. I can't tell you how I got the invitation. I know I am always signing up for different newsletters but shout out to sweet baby Jesus for coming through. The experience was amazing and I am so glad I was able to be a guest. We were immediately greeted by smiling faces that were ready to serve us and with cocktails! We were told we could look around, mingle, and that the food would be out shortly. We took a seat at table twenty-two and then this variety of fries appeared. Buffalo fries, chili cheese fries, truffle fries and more all waiting for us to dig in and that we did. You could taste all of the fresh ingredients in the drinks that were given and they all had the right amount of alcohol. Every single burger I tried was filled with flavor, juices, and uniqueness. I actually don't eat burgers often so when I venture out to get a burger it's always at places that have been recommended. However, these burgers weren't your normal cheese burger. These burgers were like Five Guys on steroids or just your favorite burger joint multiplied. Everything was exceptional! The prices on the menu were reasonable and they even have a burger where they donate a dollar from each sell to Stax Music Academy to inspire and nurture young people through music education!!
I would recommend Hopdoddy Burger Bar Midtown to all burger lovers/food lovers and residents just looking for a cool spot to hang out and have great drinks. They have a patio for your spring/summertime adventures and if you're not really looking to eat burgers they have a turkey burger sent from GOD and two vegan burger options for all against using anything animal for their personal consumption. Hopdoddy Burger Bar has thought of it all! Visiting will not only please your taste buds but give you a dope experience.
To the city I ask that you take care of this gem and appreciate it for adding to the list of already delicious eateries. I also want to say thank you to Hopdoddy and their staff for being an example of superb customer service, diversity, and originality. Huge shout out to Hopdoddy employees Erin, Dalton, Jimmy, Arielle, and Fish, they made our experience one to remember! Once we left I asked my mother what rating would she give Hopdoddy if the scale ranged from 1 to 10 and she quickly stated a 10. If you know my mom you know this is a HUGE deal because like I said before she can be hard to impress!
PLEASE go see them when they open on next Monday, April 2 they are looking forward to seeing you! Be sure to follow my blog page on Instagram @Plug901 for more stories and updates on what's going on here in the city. I have more pictures from last night on my Insta Story!
