Houston, TX 77002
Houston Press' Description
The king of downtown burger joints sports a crown of shiny hubcaps.
"Welcome to Hubcab Grill" reads a sign in the entranceway, "hand-
formed, crafted, burgers, never frozen, 100% fresh ground chuck with
homemade toasted buns." The tiny burger joint is located on Prairie
Street next to the Alden Hotel. There are a couple of tables and a
long skinny counter inside the urban snack shack, a few more tables
on the sidewalk out front, and a patio with five or six umbrella
tables along the side of the building. The muffuletta burger and the
Greek burger are fascinating variations on the all-American hamburger.
Tips from foursquare
Burgers you should try: the sticky burger with peanut butter, the Philly cheesesteak burger and the hand cut fries. Beware of the small space, though, it's tiny in there. [Eater 38 Member]
