Order up: Campus to get new eatery

Burger connoisseurs align themselves in one of two camps. Group one says no burger cooked without fire is worth it's salt. Group two holds that nothing's better than a burger made with an all-beef patty that's been slapped onto a hot, hot grill where it quickly sears, locking in all those yummy juices.

Group two, rejoice. You can soon have it your way.

If construction continues to progress, Austin's, a burgery extraordinaire, will open in early September in the east end of the Harvill Bookstore.

If construction continues to progress, Austin's, a burgery extraordinaire, will open in early September in the east end of the Harvill Bookstore.

"This will be a traditional hamburger joint," says Housing Director Joe Mills, "with sirloin burgers, fries, onion rings and real milkshakes."

Real milkshakes, he emphasizes, as in hand-dipped, blender-whipped concoctions with a maraschino cherry thrown in for good measure.

Cheese-steak and Bratwurst sandwiches also will be available, along with hand-dipped ice cream.

And what better ambiance to bite into burger than one suggestive of the '50s? Austin's will set the mood with ketchup red accents against a black-and-white backgroundplus a dash of chrome for sparkle.

And with barstools as well as tables, Austin's will accommodate both the solitary burgermeister as well as carnivores dining as a group.
