Where’s the Best Place to Get a Burger in Houston?

Vote Now to Decide — and Get $250 from the Winning Hotspot

Okay, Houston. We’ve got a contentious fight to settle: where’s the best place to get a burger? We know burgers reign supreme here in the Lone Star State, and Houston has no shortage of killer beefy bites. Whether you like your’s a little extra fancy and loaded with toppings or greasy and make quick, choose from the list of Houston’s 10 Best to vote for the burger joint that “tops” your list. We should also mention that one lucky voter will be in the running for a $250 gift card from the winning restaurant…

The Burger Joint

The Burger Joint

Thick, plump burgers is the name of the game at The Burger Joint. Whether you choose to dine in at the Montrose location or The Heights location, these burgers will never disappoint. They’re made with 100% fresh Angus beef, and are made to order on a toasty classic style bun. Also worth mentioning is their extensive milkshake list.

Lankford Grocery & Market

Lankford Grocery & Market

Lankford is that place that you see and think, “Yes, good burgers are definitely sold there.” And you would be right. The simple and humble exterior set with picnic tables outside set the scene for the classic American burgers sold inside. Lankford has been serving tasty burgers to hungry Houstonians since 1939.

Stanton's City Bites

Stanton's City Bites

Stanton’s City Bites is another one of those Houston staples that has kept burger enthusiasts going back for years. It started out as a family-run grocery store, but has since evolved into what it is now. There is no doubt that they’ve truly perfected the art of the made-to-order, homestyle hamburger with each passing decade.

Hubcap Grill

Hubcap Grill

If you see a building with hubcaps along the walls and roofing, you’re in a very good place. The fresh-grilled burger is something to be reckoned with here at Hubcap Grill, and it doesn’t take long to realize all the love that’s gone into these handcrafted burgers made with fresh beef. The same can be said for their fresh-cut twice-fried fries, too.

Bernie's Burger Bus

Bernie's Burger Bus

Bernie’s started as a food truck in an actual yellow school bus and quickly built a cult following. Justin Turner’s graduated to three brick and mortar restaurants, but his distinctive burgers are no less juicy or homemade. With burgers dubbed Homeroom, The Class Clown, The Substitute and more, there is something fun (and giant) for everyone.

Bubba's Texas Burger Shack

Bubba's Texas Burger Shack

Never judge a book by its cover, and certainly never judge a burger joint by its exterior. Bubba’s is basically a shack tucked under 59, but the heavy Texas ambience coupled with killer juicy burgers make dining under the freeway oh-so-worth it. And here’s a little something extra: you can order yours to be made with either beef or bison.

The Hay Merchant

The Hay Merchant

We know The Hay Merchant as first and foremost a place to get great craft brews, but what to pair with those beers? A burger, of course. The burgers at The Hay Merchant are juicy, savory, and incredibly indulgent. It’s really is hard to go wrong when you’ve got a massive burger made with two beef patties, melty cheese, and a host of fresh toppings.

Whataburger

Whataburger

Some may consider it sacrilegious to include a mass-market fast food chain on a best burger list, but this is Texas and Whataburger breaks all the rules on what’s acceptable. Sometimes (usually late at night), you may just think Whataburger is the best in the land. We’re not going to judge you for that. This isn’t just another fast food burger.

Moon Tower Inn

Moon Tower Inn

The super under-the-radar burger shack of sorts (run by the same folks as Voodoo Daiquiri Drive, might we add) offers everything you’d ever really want. While the inconspicuous joint has got a variety of tasty meaty bites, don’t overlook their $9.69 half-pound burgers. They may just knock your socks off.

Flip 'n Patties

Flip 'n Patties

A Filipino-American mash-up was just waiting to happen, and we’re so happy it did. This food truck-turned-brick-and-mortar is pure magic. The burgers have got a special Filipino flare that makes them unlike any other burger you’ve had, and may inspire you to get their ice cream burger to celebrate.
