Houston Press' Description

The Burger Guys is an established part of Houston's healthy handful of bright-burning burger stars with a singular vision for over-the-top yet surprisingly thoughtful burgers, dogs and shakes. Open since last fall, the downtown site on Main offers a light-rail-friendly location that makes it an easy choice for downtown workers and those farther afield. Standouts include the Sonoma burger with its bacon, avocado and arugula topping; the Buffalo , a mash-up of everything buffalo-wing-related except the chicken; and the fries coated with an extra sprinkle of kosher salt. The milkshakes have soft, butter-fatty chunks in them; try the Ten Cup Chocolate, and there's also seasonal shakes. If you go the hot dog route, choose the Chicago, dragged through the garden with peppers, pickles, tomatoes and relish.

    The Sonoma burger is where it's at!

  • Eater on 04/18/13

    Eater Houston editor Eric Sandler says, "The Burger Guys success lies in the quality of their ingredients and the creativity of their toppings. That means 100%, hand-formed akahushi burger patties."
