He said those big openings in the front will have garage style doors and will be open when the weather permits, the section behind it will have tables.

Yep. The construction diagram submitted several months ago to the city (when the developer was seeking a variance request) indicates The Burger Joint's forthcoming location at 5403 Kirby Dr will include garage doors. 

I think the garage doors are a feature for The Burger Joint (like the Heights and this one.) The feature is also planned for the forthcoming Memorial location at 1016 Gessner Rd.

The diagrams were posted several posts up:

He also said they are adding a Taco Stand by to the Burger Joint in Clear Lake on W. Bay Area Blvd.

Yeah, this is old news. There are several news articles from 2022 about The Taco Stand expanding to Webster.

Additionally, The Taco Stand's Webster outpost at 118 El Dorado Blvd is discussed on the forum for the development it's going in: East Baybrook.

Burger Joint.





Future kitchen area for the Burger Joint.




Future Taco Stand.



Note: I ate at the Montrose Burger Joint yesterday and talked with the manager. He confirmed these two new locations and the Baybrook area Taco Stand. I asked what was to become of Pistoleros since the new Westheimer Taco Stand would be adjacent to it but he didn't know.

A sewer disconnect / plumbing permit for 2525 Albans Road was filed a couple of days ago. 

There are plans for The Taco Stand restaurant at 2525 Albans Rd.

In addition to The Taco Stand, a Rice Village area outpost of its sister concept The Burger Joint is in the works. The Burger Joint will be located next door at 5403 Kirby Dr.


A plan reviewing fee was purchased yesterday for 2525 Albans St.

Details from the permit:

Use: Partial demolition, partial demolition
FCC Group : Non-residential alteration

The permit is in preparation for the construction of The Taco Stand. 

The restaurant will join its sister concept The Burger Joint, which will be located next door at 5403 Kirby Dr.
