Houston’s Best Family-Friendly Burger (& Veggie Burger) Joints

Smashburger Las Vegas Burger Houston Heights BigKidSmallCity
Sometimes I really just want a good two-hand-er, ten-napkin kind of hamburger.  And almost every other day of the week, I would love a good veggie burger (that is not a boring soy-paste patty).  I’m always on the look out for a good burger… but with all the restaurants in Houston, where do I try first?

I asked that BigKidSmallCity community, and this is what YOU told me.  Thank you!

If you have a burger place to recommend, tell us!


  • Lankford Grocery (Montrose) – Started as a grocery store, this restaurant introduce the burger in the 1970s (and has not looked back!).
  • The Counter (Heights & The Woodlands) – Custom made burgers.
  • M&M Grill (Almeda & Old Spanish Trail) –  Mexican and Mediterranean Grill!  Try the “Loaded Double”!
  • Elevation Burger  (Kirby) -Organic, Grass-Fed, Free Range Beef Burgers and Fresh Fries.
  • Hub Cap Grill (Downtown, Heights, Kemah) – Fresh, never frozen.
  • Buff Burger (Memorial) – Good burgers, thin fries and great shakes.

  • Jerry Built (The Woodlands & Bellaire) – Good food AND a giant chalkboard wall.
  • Zachary’s Cajun Cafe (Kingwood) – Food is made in house daily from fresh ingredients. Nothing from a mix, a can or jar.
  • The Shack (Cypress) – Great burgers and very kid friendly… with a giant yard for playing!
