Apr. 17—ODESSA — Austin-based better burger pioneer Hopdoddy Burger Bar, is raising the burger bar in Odessa with a new location opening Tuesday.

Located at 7250 East TX-191, Hopdoddy will kick off its grand opening celebration by giving away a free burger to the first 100 people in line at 11 a.m. On opening day, guests can also be entered to win free burgers for a year by sharing a post or story on Instagram about their visit, tagging @hopdoddy and using #hopdoddylove.

"We're excited to bring more of Hopdoddy's craft burgers and shareable fries to West Texas," said Hopdoddy CEO Jeff Chandler. "We've enjoyed being a part of the community in Midland and I can't wait for everyone in Odessa to taste the Hopdoddy love when we open on Tuesday."

Each month, Hopdoddy features a decadent limited release burger creation to showcase culinary innovation. As a nod to Earth Day and Hopdoddy's sustainability initiatives, the April Burger of the Month is the Mother Nature burger made with a Force of Nature 100% grass-fed regenerative beef patty, a Vital Farms pasture raised egg, cheddar cheese frico, Brother's Bond Bourbon onion jam, crispy shallots and au poivre aioli.

Sustainability and responsibly sourced ingredients, like Force of Nature 100% grass-fed, regenerative bison and cage-free chicken from Red Bird Farms, are important pillars of the brand. Burgers are served on one of three different house-baked buns or as a bowl on a bed of fresh house greens. The craveable menu also caters to a variety of diets with a vegetarian black bean and corn patty, a 100% plant-based patty from Beyond Meat and a dedicated Gluten-Free menu. A full-service bar will serve margaritas, draft cocktails and local craft beer.

Hopdoddy will be open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday to Thursday and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Follow Hopdoddy on Facebook, Instagram and TikTok.
