Rivaling Sandy’s as the oldest burger spot in Austin, Dirty Martin’s has been primely located on campus for more than 90 years. Part bar, part diner, Dirty’s serves a burger with thin patties cooked on a flat top - so we usually opt for the large (a double) instead of the small. The menu keeps it pretty simple with the options, but we like the O.T. Special with bacon, cheese, lettuce, tomato, and mayo. This place is exactly what you picture when you think of a classic diner and you might accidentally yell “I’ll have the usual, Faye!” even though you’re not a regular and you don’t know who Faye is.
