Someburger - Blast from the Past

January 22, 2009

Someburger is the classic walk-up hamburger stand that's miraculously survived into the 21st century.

It's another blast from the past: Old-school thin-patty hamburgers, lovingly prepared on a classic flat griddle. All the usual toppings are available, and they're fresh and tasty.

The staff at Someburger are great; many have been there for years. These folks know burgers, and take pride in what they do. And it shows.

Sides are quite good: Best are the onion rings, which are fried properly, only slightly greasy, and have a nice snap to them.

There's no dining room, but there are a handful of picnic tables outside the hamburger stand. Many folks choose to eat in their vehicles, especially during a hot Houston summer.

By today's standards, the burgers are downright cheap. $6 buys a burger, fries, and a Coke, and a slice of Texas history to boot.

Someburger is another place that every Houston burger lover needs to try for himself. I'll bet you go back again and again.
