Really love this place. Definitely my go to for fast food. Their fries are phenomenal. The only reason I don't give this place a 5 is bc the star of the menu (the fries) is sorely misrepresented in the breakfast menu. The potato chunks have the same seasoning but bc of how bulky they are don't get to take much... More

Very nice quality burgers. I would catalogue them as the best fast food burgers around as the quality/price ratio is the best. Fresh products are used. Much better option that McDonald's

We hit this place on the way back from work once a week to satisfy our burger craving. This place is great as far as simplicity and quality goes. If you want a good burger with fresh peeled idaho fries then this is your place. If you want 200 fru fru toppings or lots of different sides, a different burger... More

I love P. Terry's, but not at this location. I don't know what it is, but this particular location always disappoints. I try to avoid this location, but there are a few times a year that it's inevitable, like last night. It was the only place within a five mile radius that was open late. We ordered cheeseburgers, Fries, and... More

It's dependable & cheap. The burgers are only so-so. The shakes are fine. The fries and chocolate chip oatmeal cookies are good. I didn't care for the chicken sandwich or the whole wheat bana bread or the lemonade milk shake.

P.Terry's is worth the calories! When you go order a shake and fries which are just delicious. Everytime I go I can't wait to go back!!

Not bad for a fast food burger. I think it was better than a big burger chain in Austin, that I was disappointed in.

P. Terry's has good food. The atmosphere is typical of California, so if you are a fan of that, you will enjoy it here. We were surrounded by hipsters, which wasn't surprising here in Austin.

If you just want a quick burger this place is OK. Nothing special. The fries are great though. Long line at the drive thru so my opinion may not be shared. I prefer gourmet burgers.

The quality of the PTerry burgers and chicken are outstanding. Fries and milkshakes are also excellent. Design your own combo including a lettuce wrapped burger or grilled chicken, sauce (their recipe), grilled or raw onions, tomatoes, pickles...yum! The owner has been at 2 of the locations I have visited in the last year busily working with his staff. I like... More
