Heff's Burgers & More has been a 'big bopper' hit in Abilene so far!

Last week, I told you all about Bailey’s Ice Cream & Soda Shop. Well, if you are looking to grab a delicious bite to eat before grabbing your yummy treat – you’re in luck!

“Heff’s Burgers and More” is a 50s-themed diner that was originally located in Potosi, Texas, but when the owner realized she needed a larger location, she made the move to Abilene; conveniently right next door to what would be the future home of old-fashioned soda shop, Bailey’s.

Heff’s may have been bursting at its seams in Potosi, but it seems that the news of the opening has gotten out in a big way in Abilene. Well, the joint is definitely jumping: it was busy from the moment I stepped through the door until the moment I left, but the quality of service or food was not sacrificed. You could say that Heff’s has been a “big bopper hit” in Abilene!

Since I had never been to Heff’s before, I asked the waitress what is the most popular menu item. She recommended the Combo #1 which included a Hamburger, their infamous Twister Fries, and a drink for only $6.25 – a great price for a ton of food. The well-seasoned patty protruded from the bun and was thin, a bit crispy and piping hot, just how I like it! The Twister Fries are what make this place most unique in my opinion, these fries are actually potatoes sent through a grinder to make their thin-curly shape. They’re delicious and a must-have when you visit Heff’s!

Other menu items include: BLT sandwiches, grilled chicken sandwiches, grilled cheese sandwiches, chicken strips, steak fingers, corn dogs, pizzas (multiple toppings), onion rings, tater tots, salads and fried dessert pies – it is your traditional all-American eatery!

Overall, this new mom-and-pop burger joint with a 50s twist won me over, if not by their stellar burgers and twister fries, then by their nostalgic charm. So the next time you’re visiting Abilene or near the Mall of Abilene, be sure to drop by Heff’s for a good meal in a great setting.
