A good kids restaurant needs two things: a safe playground and food that's tempting enough to get them to take a break from it. Hat Creek Burger Company, a new arrival from Austin that describes itself as a "fast-casual family-friendly burger patio," hits both marks. Its wild popularity is probably also attributable to the wine and on-tap beers from Austin's Strange Land Brewery. The respectable burgers are fresh off the grill and all under $10. Milkshakes with gummy worms and sprinkles are on hand for emergency meltdowns/rewards/bribes. As of now, the AstroTurf playground is rocking mostly in the evening until a soon-to-come canopy will be installed. So try to get there in the morning for breakfast tacos, egg sandwiches and pancakes when the air is still cool enough to breathe. Birthday parties are free with a reservation, but they're already booked through October, so get on it now, moms.
