Only at Twisted Root will you hear Tinkerbell and Lady Gaga being called out over the loudspeaker. Instead of handing out customers numbers for their orders, they give out a small card with a name on it. This is one restaurant with an atmosphere that is hard to experience elsewhere. It has a casual & laid back vibe with high ceilings and an open floor plan with outdoor seating as well. Whether you are on a cheat day or trying to be healthy, this restaurant will cater to both needs with the Fried Stuff and Healthy Stuff sections on its menu. They also have Handspun Custard Shakes which come in flavors you can’t deny such as Cookie Dough & Brownie, Hershey’s Chocolate, Toasted Coconut Cream Pie, and much more. It really makes for a tough decision when you have already ordered a burger with fries. Really though, it just makes for another excuse to come by Twisted Root again to try out their shakes. Twisted Root is also right next to Alamo Drafthouse Cinema so it’s the perfect stop for lunch or dinner before a movie or in our case, the optimal study break from hours in anatomy lab.
Pictured above is the Big Tex burger with guacamole, fried onion strings, and chipotle sauce. You can order any of their burgers in beef, turkey, vegan, or a specialty game meat. The only downside to the burger was that it did not come with any sides. You have to pay extra for any side items such as fries. We tried the fried pickles as well, which I would recommend only getting with a group as they can be too salty for one person. Overall, this is one burger joint I would revisit!
