    This is a hidden gem of Houston. Get their buffalo burger and feast on perfection. They have a food truck that changes locations

    I have been coming here since I was a small child. This place is a Houston institution for a reason. Incredible food with the friendliest service. Of course I always get the buffalo burger

    The burgers are very yummy!! And yes the potato salad is good. The only thing they are missing are fries that would be a cherry on top 😜

    One of the best burgers I have ever had. I ordered the buffalo burger with bacon cheese and mushrooms. The spice they use with the burgers is incredible. Also their customer service is great.

    Most incredible burger I've ever had. Buffalo ROCKS. Served in old school wax paper by way friendly and HAPPY people. So, so juicy. Get the jalapeno potato salad. Scared of buffalo? They got beef too!

    This place is a certified dive. It's located under a highway, is a tiny shack & serves some of the best burgers in the city. Buffalo is their difference and it is mighty tasty. [Eater 38 Member]
