Have you tried a burger at HipBurger? This Greenville, SC burger joint had humble beginnings as a food truck. Recently the popularity of the “HipTruck” supported the addition of a brick-and-mortar location in Mauldin, SC to the brand.
Greenville residents have made comparisons to Shake Shack and In-N-Out Burger: popular west coast fast-casual burger spots that have cult-like followings. The comparison is warranted. With the convenience of the drive-through at HipBurger, not only do people not have to drive to Charlotte or Atlanta for that burger craving – they don’t even have to get out of their car.
The HipBurger Menu
The secret to success for most restaurants is to do a few things and focus on doing them well. HipBurger follows this philosophy and has a very simplified menu, carried over from the food truck.
The menu at HipBurger consists of just four main menu items. The HipBurger, The HipChicken, HipNuggets, and their hand-cut Boardwalk Fries.
Each menu item comes with the option to upgrade with various toppings, but that’s it. No-frills, just delicious burgers.
If you’re a fan of dipping your fries in a milkshake – they have those too! Handspun in chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, and salted caramel.
Little HipMeals at HipBurger
Kids get to choose from two “Little Hip Meals” options.: a six-count HipNugget, or grilled cheese meal that comes with fries and a 16oz soft drink. A kid-sized burger was noticeably missing from the menu and the Original HipBurger is more than my kids would be able to eat. If your children are willing to share, halving an original burger might work for young children who want a burger and fries at HipBurger.
What happened to the food truck? Well, it’s still out and about around the Upstate! You can find out where it will be, by following the HipTruck Instagram account.
