  1. Boy, does that bring back memories! I was just thinking about Holiday House burgers yesterday while eating a burger at North by Northwest (they also use shredded cheddar). I never met the owner, but I ate my share of their burgers! My first introduction was the one on Guadalupe in the 70's during college. The last one that I knew about was on airport just south of Koenig. Perhaps that was the last one and I just lost track of time; I didn't realize it lasted until 2004.

      I believe the last one was in Tarrytown at Exposition and Windsor. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Holiday House was a great Austin Institution.
