    Lunch is good; breakfast is better. This is definitely NOT a fancy pretentious place. The only thing that will impress you is the food.

    The burgers here are quite good. They are large and juicy. Also they grow all of their own vegetables behind the restaurant.

    Easily one of the best burgers in Houston. Can't go wrong with any of them. Daily specials are usually on point too.

    You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. My favorites are the veggie burger for a healthy option or the firehouse burger.

    Solid burger. Hand-formed patty - actually a minus when they're rushed; can be very uneven (and cook unevenly). Bun is a weak point.

    Cash only. come early or late to get a table. Great burgers: a single with cheese was a 5 napkin affair. Fries are not as good as rings... Great outdoor tables.

    Last tip: don't wait for your check. When you're finished, remember your table # and go to the register. BTW: they only take cash. No credit cards.

    Chiliheads, do you think you can handle the Firehouse? If you're into the type of spice that causes leakage in your nose and a change in your breathing patterns then this bad boy is for you.

    If Mcdonalds is who you consider serves a good burger, this place isn't for you. If you want a delicious pile of juicy madness that oozes down your arm as you eat it - this is where you need to go.
