We ate here for the first time after reading some reviews so we weren't totally knocked out by the price, but our tab for some wings, 2 burgers, one salad and 2 sodas was $50. So, what do you get for that? A huge burger that tasted great and great service. We were able to tailor the burger to our... More

Good burger. Probably the best burger I've had in TX (moved here 2 yrs ago) so far. Still searching for the best burger that TX has to offer. Pretty expensive for a burger ($16), however pretty tasty. Only one suggestion, I would use a slightly sweeter bun, butter it, then toast on flat iron grill. I think that would make... More

I needed a quick meal between business activities. I had never heard of this establishment and decided to try it. Glad that I did. The waitress was a gem and the food was exactly what i expected. Had a regular cheeseburger with a salad side. It was all done - although I thought the burger was too big - it... More

This place is a "treat" when we go into town from the westside. Burgers are the best in Houston, I mean hands down the best and they have tons of other great stuff on the menu. If you have a friend with you, consider splitting the burger so you can try one of their shakes (delish!).

Have eaten here twice. Very good food at reasonable price. Not a quiet atmosphere but not too loud either. Order at the counter then waitstaff brings food. Despite the pre-order concept, the waitstaff is very good. They will come by to review the order at the table before placing the final order to the kitchen. They offer suggestions or make... More

My suppose and I went there for Sunday night dinner. We had not been there before. We wanted a burger but did not want fast food. This place was perfect. Unusual format...you order at the counter and then sit down. Your waiter serves your food and your beverages, then presents you with a check at the end. We ordered one... More

We stopped here for lunch based on recommendations from others for a great burger. The restaurant is spacious and you order as soon as you walk in and then sit down. I ordered a regular Pappas burger with bacon, mayo and grilled onions cooked medium with fries. I also ordered a chocolate shake. We were then seated and our waiter... More
