An Austin-area burger joint that I assume has become popular down there is expanding, and it's got its eyes on a Temple location.

Has anyone heard of Hat Creek Burger Co.? I haven't, but then, I don't get out much.

But bizjournals.com reports that they're looking to open new locations in Houston, Dallas, Sachse (where?), Waco, and right here in Temple.

Bizjournal's article repeatedly points out that the company's restaurants feature a play area, and the photos (which you can see on Biz Journal's site - let them get sued for infringement) make the place look pretty wholesome.

The company's been mum on where Temple's Hat Creek Burger Co. will be located, but they expect it to be open by the end of the year. Meanwhile, if you happen to visit any of their Austin locations, let us know how they are.
