The second location of Austin-based burger and booze hub Hopdoddy Burger Bar is now open at 5510 Morningside, Suite 100.

The first Houston location opened in late May 2016 at 4444 Westheimer in River Oaks, but the new Rice Village location is seemingly more family-friendly during the day, with a large outdoor area in front for your pack of wild animals to run amok. The new location also stays open until midnight, for those in search of late-night grub and a cocktail fix.

The menu at both restaurants includes gourmet burgers, loaded fries, queso, craft beer, cocktails and milkshakes. Hopdoddy Rice also has a debut menu item, Hoss’ Hot Chicken, a Nashville-inspired hot chicken sandwich topped with housemade baby kale slaw that was created by regional chef Hoss Bowen in anticipation of the new location. The Houston Press got a taste of the sandwich on opening day, and it’s messy, adequately spicy and so worth a try.

Hopdoddy Rice is also featuring the Goodnight for a Good Cause burger, with cheddar, barbecue and onion, the purchase of which donates $1 to The Periwinkle Foundation, which provides programs that offer a positive impact on children, young adults and families facing the challenges of cancer and life-threatening diseases.

Expect a third location to open in Vintage Park in northwest Houston in spring 2017 as well.
