Grilled Chicken Sandwich&Onion Rings- super thick breading on onion rings & a nice buttery bun on the sandwich. Only took about 8 minutes for food to come out, & tasted very homemade

We stood in line, with no one in front of us, only to be told "we are out of burgers". How does an establishment with burger in their name run out of burgers at 5:30 pm?

Love this place. Fried pickles, onion rings and fries are great. I really like the vegeburger best! You just can't find a garden burger at mom-n-pop burger joints, but you can here. And they make hand dipped shakes with BlueBell ice cream.

Delighted to hear you're a fan of it all! It's not every day the Veggie Burger gets a shout-out, so we couldn't be happier that it never fails to hit the spot. We hope to welcome you back for another hand-dipped shake soon. 'Til next time, Kiran, Owner More

Old Fashioned Burgers & Ice Cream serves fresh, old-fashioned style burgers and hand-dipped milkshakes in Salado, TX. All of our burgers are made with fresh, never frozen 100% Certified Angus Beef and are cooked-to-order, then served on our toasted specialty buns. Our delicious milkshakes are hand-dipped with Texas' own Blue Bell ice cream. Bring your family and grab one of our specialty burgers, like the favorite Texas Mushroom, with our seasoned fries and a shake. Or if you're looking for something different try our catfish po'boy or our new breakfast tacos! We strive to serve fresh, great quality food in that beloved old-fashioned style. We believe it's worth the wait!
