Austinites can look forward to a delicious, authentic Austin burger if they ever find themselves in Turkey.


Austin Burgers, located in Balikesir, Turkey, features a menu with none other than the burgers Austinites love and enjoy. The burger joint manages to take the aesthetic and food of Austin and offer it in Balikesir.

The restaurant offers a typical menu which can be found throughout Austin, featuring four different burgers: the Austin burger, Mexican burger, Texas burger and classic burger.

Although the menu is completely in Turkish, a little Google translate helped Austonia figure out the ingredients in the authentic Austin burger found in Balikesir: bacon, cheddar, "Austin sauce," caramelized onions and pickles. The Texas burger includes a garlic sauce and mushrooms, and the Mexican burger has a kick, with jalapeños and sriracha sauce.

Austin Burgers also offers french fries with four different sauces: parmesan, truffle sauce, sweet chilli and sriracha.

The establishment seems fairly new, opening earlier this year, according to its social media pages.

With Austin Burgers, Austinites can get a taste of home 6,474 miles away.
