Both Tacos

Best Burger in Texas (and each state)

Recommended Posts

I have had a couple of Wayback Burgers recently because they opened one close to my house in Georgetown.

Damn good and the fries are solid as well.

I grew up in Burnet and Storms was great in the ‘80s (and I’m sure it was before) but I can’t do it anymore. I’ve tried Burnet and Lampasas 7 or 8 times in the past decade and it’s just sad how far they’ve fallen.

I stopped at the Storm's in Burnet a couple months ago and the fries smelled like old grease. I didn't even eat them.

Discovered a hidden gem in the Richardson / North Dallas area - Sky Rocket Burger. It’s in an odd location, but easily my favorite burger in the area. Simple, greasy and delicious.

If you're passing through Katy around mealtime, check out Willy Burger on the main street, (Highway Boulevard!!??!!), in the downtown area. The original is in Beaumont but I've never been there.

Made to order onion rings. Hee Haw Burger is great.

Is it the best in Texas? Doubt it 'cause I haven't tried them all and there's a bunch in this thread that look fantastic.

Is it worth a stop for any burger lover looking to love a burger in Katy, Texas around mealtime? Sho'nuff.

There's all sorts of gourmet burger joints everywhere these days, and plenty of holes in the wall.  But if I want to satisfy a real hankerin', nothing beats...

It is the most glorious tasting chili burger on God's green earth.

Strongly agree. Tommy's Original burger is the greatest fast food burger in existence.  For the uninitiated, it's served with chili, a thick beefsteak tomato, thick slice of cheese, mustard, pickles and onions. May not photograph well but it's so damn good and so damn messy.

Herd's is featured on this season of The Burger Show. Apparently the guys couldn't believe at how good it was. It's the grill, Baby!

Need to get out to Herds. Never been to Jacksboro

Knife burger was ok but nothing special. 

Keller's I still love no matter what anyone says. Not the best burger around but the old school way of driving up, ordering, paying cash, and eating a solid burger and fries for little cost is just awesome. Feels like the 80s childhood every time I do it except now I'm in the driver's seat.

Not to mention that their #5 Special with tots and a stubby Coors will set you back about $5 all-in

The last series of posts on this thread have me craving a Country Burger.

* In ‘92, when I was arrested (for the first time), the Plano jail had no food service facilities, so they would just bring in Country Burger for all of us.

You get a vacation and you chose the Northeast? Even better, you chose the Northeast in November? I think you’re lost son, Texags is further down the street past the portoshitter and before you get to the used dildo store.

You call D.C. the Northeast? Where do you live, Guadalajara?

Meanwhile, I left Texags-land in the rear view mirror quite a while ago now, and I don't foresee any reason why I would ever go back.

Wait. Is DC not considered the North East? 

Not by anybody with a map, no. It's as "mid" as Mid-Atlantic gets. Virginia, Maryland, and Delaware are too far South to be North, and too far North to be South.

Lankford Grocery in Houston and Chris Madrid’s in San Antonio are my favorites. 

This confuses me. Back in 2010 a buddy at work and I hit up pretty much every burger joint in Houston except for Lankford. I finally went this past summer and was entirely underwhelmed. However, I agree that Chris Madrid’s fucking amazing.

Same. Very disappointed in Lankford after all of hype. 

I haven’t lived in Houston in almost 10 years, so it may have dropped off in quality since I last went. Sad if that’s the case.

Vacation starting in 24 hours. Any recs for burgers in Virginia or D.C.?

It's been a long time since I lived in DC but if you're on Capitol Hill check out Tune Inn if a dive bar with greasy burgers is up your alley. It's a love it or hate it kinda place. Cheap beer, greasy burgers. Loved it. 

If you're into amazing pancakes, Market Lunch at Eastern Market also on Capitol Hill is one of my favorite food memories on the planet.  Blueberry pancakes there...not sure why they were so great compared to all the others I've tried. 

If for some reason you decide to check out Annapolis, Cantlers Riverside Inn is worth the drive on its own.

The Alien burger at the Second Street Brewery at the Railyard is my overall favorite in Santa Fe, NM. Can't say it's the best in the state, though. I think I'd leave the guac off though. The blue corn dusted relleno and crispy onions makes it awesome.

"Green Chile Cheeseburger Smackdown Winner 2014 All natural Angus patty topped with an organic blue corn dusted relleno, chile-jack cheese, smoked bacon, stout queso, Hatch green chile, crispy fried onions, guacamole and chipotle mayo"

The best burger I've ever had is the black label burger at Minetta Tavern in lower Manhattan, NYC. This one is so good it took a couple years for me to enjoy any other burger. But it's a $33 burger, and they use prime meats and a custom blend of dry-aged ribeye, brisket, short rib and skirt steaks from perhaps the country's leading purveyor of meat. The burger is just the meat, carmelized onions and the bun, served with amazing fries.

Will be in the city on Tuesday and have been debating about hitting up MT, not sure the wife would be thrilled about a $33 dollar burger, though.

It's quite a place. If you can grab a reservation I'd go for it. But of course it depends on your individual circumstance and how much you'd pay for dinner elsewhere in NYC. Even with a rez, be prepared for a wait. The place has a great charm and I think most women would enjoy it...plenty of other stuff on the menu.
