Mark those calendars: Austin-based burger and chicken sandwich emporium Hopdoddy Burger Bar is opening its third Houston location on Tuesday, April 25, in Vintage Park.
The new location will rock the same menu as its fellow location in River Oaks and the newly opened Rice Village outpost. Expect Kobe beef burgers, a cult-favorite sushi-grade ahi tuna burger, tasty milkshakes, a full bar and loads of fries with queso for dipping. The new Hopdoddy Vintage Park will also have the newly introduced Hoss’ Hot Chicken, an ode to Nashville hot chicken topped with a helping of crisp baby kale slaw on a housemade bun. It's actually one of Houston Press's favorite new fried chicken sandwiches in the city — a messy, satisfying midday must.
Like its other Houston locations, Hopdoddy Vintage Park will also donate $1 of each Goodnight Burger sold to the Periwinkle Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to developing and providing programs that positively change the lives of children, young adults and families who are challenged by cancer and other life-threatening illnesses and are cared for at Texas Children’s Hospital. In fact, the new location's general manager, Tony Polichino, has volunteered as a senior counselor at Camp Periwinkle since 2011, according to a news release from the company.
