P. Terry’s, Part 1: A Westlake preview

By Mike Sutter | Fed Man Walking | 01.26.12
UPDATE: The Westlake P. Terry's opened June 1. Story here.
It’s only been a week since the construction fences went up around the new P. Terry’s Burger Stand location in West Lake Hills, but the curiosity’s been building for months.
In fact, owner Patrick Terry said he’s gotten more phone calls about when his sixth location will open than all of the other locations combined. The answer right now is late May, but he’s released a rendering of the new P. Terry’s, being built in the Village at Westlake shopping center at Bee Cave Road and Capital of Texas Highway (Loop 360) that also includes H-E-B, La Madeleine and Barnes & Noble. The shop will stand at the former site of a bank building between La Madeleine and the former Four Corners restaurant building.
The new store, like the ones that have drawn so much attention on North Lamar, Ben White and most recently Lakeway, was designed by the Michael Hsu Office of Architecture. At 3,800 square feet, it’s the largest in the chain, Terry said, and will feature a double drive-through dominated by glass globes suspended from the girders of an awning that extends to the towering glass walls of the dining room. The original Barton Springs Road location, by comparison, is just 526 square feet. The kitchen and drive-through exteriors will be sheathed in the P. Terry’s signature aqua color, offset with slats of stained wood. Construction is being handled by Blue & Associates of Austin.
If plans for the late May opening hold, P. Terry’s will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, joining a Westlake market that recently welcomed the second location of Hat Creek Burger Co. across the road at the former Pots & Plants site.
