I had the "78704" burger and it was incredible! The toasted jalapeno cheese bun was awesome and the sweet potato fries are "to die for!

Love the generous basket of onion rings, yum. My fav burger is the Rosedale-bbq sauce, cheddar...like the sweet potato fries mixed in with the regular fries. Great comfortable atmosphere. Watched a basketball game inside while the feel was that of outside with the big garage doors up and opened. Feels like having burgers at a party with lots of friends all around.

Pros: great burger add ons

This is my kids' total favorite place to go in Austin, as I love it myself. Where else can you find burgers, beer, ice cream and a superb playground, all in a cool old gas-station building? Next to Central Market's flagship on Lamar, this is our favorite place to meet up with friends with kids. We also went with family, kids aged 5-19, and everyone had a great time. Did I mention that they play great music on the PA, too? Really fun time.

Phil's has terrific burgers and great sweet potato fries. Reasonably priced, it is very family friendly if that's what you need, but also good for couples without kids, or anyone, for that matter.

Phil's is also built next to Amy's Ice Cream, and just down the block from the Burnet Rd. Hey Cupcake! if you crave some fun dessert afterward!

Highly recommended!

The burgers are fantastic - they have 10 or so types to choose from and mini versions too boot. Next to Amy's Ice cream but you won't need it if you try one of their delicious shakes. Love the fried, onion rings - the food is just awesome.
Note - packed with families so if little ones drive you nuts wait for an off hour to go.
Simple and perfect, embarasses every other burger place in town.

The buns are delicious!

What can I say about Phil's? It's hands down the best Hamburger I've EVER eaten in my life! I just couldn't believe how good it was. The bun was some variation on sourdough which actually tasted more like those Hawaiin rolls than anytyhing else. Patty was juicy and cooked to perfection and the toppings were incredible. It was just a great overall burger.

As for ambience, the place is a converted Garage which gives it a nice bump in the character column but hurts when trying to avoid that unbelievable Austin heat. Fries, Onion straws, and Sweet Potato Fries are side options and all are good. Beyond that you've got soft drinks and bottled/tap beers to round out the menu.

If I have anything negative to say about the place, it's that I would have pumped up the specialty burger menu. It's good that I can craft my own sandwich, but it's also nice to have those perfectly measured combos set aside for me. For instance- thae burger I ate had a spicy chipotle sauce, jalapenos, and bacon.. which all seem liek they'd work well together, but then they threw in ham too! Ham sounds like an utter clash for that sandwich, but it worked and actually made my burger stellar. Add a few more of those and I'd never leave the place!

Pros: BEST BURGER EVAR!!!11!!

Cons: Dining room can get a bit hot, Needs more specialty burger on the menu

This is the venue Austin has needed for a long time. A small and safe place to eat and play with your children. After running the gauntlet at Central Market, downtown Whole Foods, Freddy's Backyard . . . Amy wins hands down. The burgers at Phil's are fresh and delicious . . . the bottleneck at the self-serve soda fountain could be better. This place gets really busy, so the staff might want to consider having someone in the dining area to bus and clean tables, but really the staff is friendly and the food is a great value for the price! Yea!!

This place is awesome. Yummy burgers and homemade fries, PLUS they are next door to Amy's ice cream! We got the three mini burger platter... the Violet was my favorite.... and the bread was great, kinda sweet, and also so soft. I can't wait to go back!

Pros: Burgers, service, location

Cons: gets a bit overcrowded, but worth the wait!

I've tried both the fish sandwich and the chicken burger... both were excellent. By default, meals come with half regular and half sweet potato fries. I'm not a sweet potato fan, so I just got all regular fries which were crisp and tasty. They have a small but good selection of beer ( 2 on tap ), including Stone Mill organic. Service is quick and friendly. It's shares a lot with Amy's Ice Cream and a playground for the kids.

Editorial from

Perched at the edge of busy Burnet Road, Phil's Ice House is a beer and grill mecca for fatigued commuters and multi-sibling families. Inventive hamburgers include the Jardin, piled high with ham, bacon, mayonnaise, peppers and cheddar,…
