East Austin's new hotspot is flipping the script on your average burger joint, with a kickflipping co-owner to boot. Not a Damn Chance Burger, known to the cool kids as NADC Burger, has just beefed up its presence with a full-on brick-and-mortar restaurant that promises a culinary ride worth the pop shove-it.

Situated at the ever-buzzing 1007 East Sixth Street, this fresh addition to the East Cesar Chavez block celebrates its grand opening today. At its grill, award-winning chef Phillip Frankland Lee throws down alongside Neen Williams – yeah, the skateboarder with the spice. Wagyu burgers, the star of the menu, are dished out with the kind of American cheese, sauce, onions, and pickles combo that puts other patties to shame. But true daredevils can kickflip their taste buds with an option that throws jalapeños into the mix, according to Austin Eater

But NADC Burger isn't just about the eats. The locale serves up a chill vibe with indoor bar seats for foodie spectators, an open kitchen, and a patio for soaking up that Austin atmosphere. Night owls listen up: this joint delivers a late-night happy hour knockout—featuring a $20 bundle of a Pabst Blue Ribbon tall boy, a burger, and a Jameson shot waiting for you at 11 p.m. on the dot.

NADC Burger isn't one to play coy with a convoluted menu. They've got their one perfect burger, double-downed with Texas pride via Wagyu from Gatesville's own Iron Table Wagyu. And if you prefer your fries with an extra helping of decadence, consider the "beast mode," which brings cheese, pickles, jalapeños, special sauce, and that extra oomph of spices as per Austin Monthly.

Hungry yet? NADC Burger's doors swing open from noon till midnight Monday through Thursday and keep the stoves burning until the wee hours of 3 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
