This, my friends, is a serious burger.
This unassuming Texas icehouse, located on I-10 inside the Loop, has been grilling a spectacular burger for years. It's arguably the best in Houston.
A great burger starts with the meat, and Christian's is superb. It's moist and tender, but not dripping with grease... the ooze factor is just about perfect. The meat has a nice char-grilled flavor, and it's complemented by wonderful fresh vegetables. The bun is browned on the grill; nothing fancy, but it completes the burger with zen-line balance.
This is a big burger. The single fills me up easily; the double should be reserved for professional athletes who are breaking training.
Christian's doesn't skimp on the fries, either. They're well-cooked, crisp on the outside and tender inside; again, just right.
If you're a burger fan, and haven't tried Christian's, go right now. We'll wait 'till you get back and tell us about it.
