Highrise Tower Posted February 4 Share Posted February 4 I was wondering if anyone on HAIF knew some information about the old 1940s/1950s restaurant near the Texas Medical Center called Price's Hamburgers, also could be named Price's Restaurant. The address is, apparently, 8301 South Main Street. The address also could have been 8299 South Main Street. Price's Hamburger's was a burger chain in Houston (and other parts of Texas?) founded by Price Lovelady. There is almost no history of this restaurant on the internet! I do not see any newspaper/magazine advertisements, pictures, menus, matchbooks, or post cards. Wondering why a chain restaurant with several locations in a big city would be so scarce? HAIF is a Houston knowledge database, and thankfully in the native Price's Hamburgers thread there is a single photo. This might be the only evidence on the internet (except for public comments/postings) that this restaurant existed. @Michelle C said: There was a Price's at the corner of Washington and Shepherd in 1958. Edit: To be clear, this is Price's Hamburgers founded by Price Lovelady. Often confused with Prince's Hamburgers, founded by Doug Prince. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
