The 7 Best Burgers In Houston

There’s nowhere that does things bigger and better than Texas – it’s true – and the humble hamburger is no different. Clutch City, AKA Houston, has more than its fair share of places to get a satisfyingly juicy burger, but ‘where’s the best?‘, we hear you ask?

Don’t worry. We’re here to answer your hangry screams. Check out the best burgers in Houston for a bite to eat that won’t let you down.

Best burgers Houston:

1. The Hay Merchant

The best place to come in the city if you want to drink from a really good selection of beer and have a stunningly good burger at the same time. The Hay Merchant grinds their beef fresh every single day, and you can tell from that very first delicious mouthful.

2. Bubba’s Texas Burger Shack

A true Houston landmark, this under-the-highway shack is known for bison burgers & thick-cut bacon.

They also offer up traditional cheeseburgers, but their bison burger is a firm favourite by locals, if you’re looking for a side dish to compliment the yummy burger, try their Jalapeño potato salad!



3. Stanton’s City Bites 

A truly unique and historic building that looks nothing like the typical burger joint on the outside. Once inside you’ll find plenty of chilled vibes and tasty treats; the perfect place to linger with friends over their truly epic burgers.

4. Rodeo Goat

This is an incredible burger joint with a super loyal following who have now branched out to five locations, including Fort Worth and Dallas. Their burgers are so outrageously brilliant that you could barely imagine them in your head before seeing them. Burger heaven is putting it mildly.

5. FM Kitchen and Bar

This farm-to-table, neighborhood restaurant is all about “doing the classics right” and boy-oh-boy do they do just that with their burgers. Casual food cooked up by a fine-dining chef, the burgers are succulent and come sandwiched between doughy potato buns.

6. Flip ‘n Patties

Houston’s very own Filipino Food Truck now has a permanent location, all the better for hungry locals.  They serve Filipino inspired burgers, with prime Akaushi beef on housemade-from-scratch white steamed buns. Throw on a topping of Filipino sausage and some banana ketchup aioli for the full flavour.

7. Hopdoddy

A chain that simply doesn’t feel like a chain because of the amount of love that goes into everything (they hand bake the buns, for example). Their service is top class and the toppings original and unique.
