This no-frills, cash-only burger joint draws crowds as well as critical accolades for its fresh hand-formed patties on housemade buns. The basics—cheeseburgers, french fries, and sweet potato fries—are done to perfection in a compact, cinder-block space festooned with hubcaps. If you're feeling adventurous, try the Cheesy Cheetos Burger (that's right, Cheetos), or the Sticky Burger, made with peanut butter, bacon, and American cheese. This original location is lunch only, but an outpost in the Heights (713/862-0555; 1133 19th St.) features longer hours (Mon–Thurs 11am–9pm, Fri–Sat 11am–10pm), over 40 types of craft beers, and a huge outdoor patio with picnic tables and a jukebox.
