    I'm going to say Fuddruckers set the tone for upscale hamburgers in the area.

    Vic & Anthony's brought the $12 burger to town, before that none were over $8 bucks.

    Around 1980 my favorite burger was served up at Old Bayou Inn on Heights. I remember it was smothered in grilled onions, exceedingly messy, and almost impossible to finish… but I always did!

    Hamburgers by Gourmet was, I’m sure, first beginning in 1970. I worked at the Kirby, Hillcroft, Downtown and W. Alabama locations as a relief mgr. and also at the Austin location on the Drag.

    We had, IIRC, 17 different burgers at one point.

    The last one was the W. Alabama location, eventually overtaken by St. Thomas University.
