Extensive burger menu with tempting starters and desserts. Very popular so be ready to wait at peak times. Try the BBQ chicken wings to start. For smaller eaters you can ask for a burger to be split over two plates. The mushroom Swiss burger with fries, split with my wife was more than enough. A wide selection of bottled beers... More

Visited Houston after being overseas for more than four years and the first place we wanted to eat was Pappas Burger. When we lived in Houston would eat there at least twice a month once we discovered the place. Never been let down and the service is good.

If this is the son to papas steak house your not going far wrong to experience the best burger in town. I think they use the same beef as dads place only my guess mind you. It's always busy so get used to listening to other people's conversations. Just sit down tuck your napkin into your shirt and gorge yourself... More

This was my first time to this style of restaurant, and the service was exceptional. The waitress (Riz), who attended to me was extremely friendly, and made sure my dining experience was great. It is a diner style atmosphere, with lots of screens showing sporting events. I had the Hickory Cheddar Burger, and it perfectly done and delicious.

Simply amazing burger to enjoy . Tried the Lucy juicy burger and I can say it satisfied my food expertise taste big time . Their buffalo wings are delicious and their milkshakes ready to fill any corner could have missed some calories :) The staff is a big like as well for their friendliness and great service ...

We got here a lot after church on Sundays. But it's great for any day of the week. Delicious burgers, and I love the turkey burger as well. There's always something you can find that will be delicious, and I think they have cold beer as well? Not sure, but I think so!

The location of this place makes it a great pop in for dinner when in the Galleria area. The burgers are consistently good. Tasty buns, great variety of toppings, decent service and a clean casual setting. All in all a good option. Nothing to rave about but certainly worth a visit every now and then.

$80 (before tip) for 4 people for below average burgers. The burgers are large but really had no flavor to them. The fries were homemade but were limp and not very good. The set up was weird in that you order at the front and seat yourself then a waiter/waitress comes to your table and confirms your order, then serves... More
