Food & Wine's Best Burgers ignores Houston - and Texas


Recommended Posts

Food & Wine magazine released their list of the Best Burgers in the US recently (maybe today). Despite Houston's reputation as having some of the best burgers in the US, the editors seemingly ignored our fair city in this list. In fact, Texas as a whole is ignored: With the exception of #9, the Perini Ranch Steakhouse in Buffalo Gap, Texas (near Abilene), no other Texas location is represented in this list.

Now, I haven't been to many of these establishments and sampled their fare, but I would wager that at least some other Texas locations have burgers which would be considered as good - if not better - than many of these.

Any thoughts on the list and this (to me) apparent snub to Texas burger eateries?

I saw that article. What's dumb is how they include California's In-N-Out burger. Although it might rank high in comparison to some fast food burgers, it's absolutely no comparison to a good restaurant's burger. (Actually had one in Fort Worth a couple of months ago and I fail to see the fascination).

That being said I did eat a burger at the Healdsburg Bar & Grill (#22) last month and it really was good. Also ate a Super Duper Burger while in SF. Don't know for sure if it's a chain but probably one of the best fast food burgers I've ever had.

I hate these "best" lists but this one might be the worst. I've had both the burgers at the Boston joints and neither is a good burger. They are expensive and pretentious. I've also had the burger press in New Haven and it was interesting but far from a "best" burger. In & Out is a solid fast food burger but it couldn't touch a Bernie's Burger Bus, a Burger Guy's or even a burger from Hubcap.

shocking to hear hubcap is good. Extremely weak seems to be the norm
