A great little hole-in-the-wall place. The burgers are good. One of the few places you can get buffalo burgers in Houston. They are quite tasty and worth the effort to eat. Restaurant does not really have anything but burgers, so be prepared for chips as a side, maybe some potato salad. Sometimes, they have a food truck that is present... More

Got a bacon cheeseburger with lettuce and ketchup. They had french fries at the time i went (sat at 1230pm) all was great. Stronger pepper taste on burger. Server taking order was a nice guy as was the one bringing food. FFs are made in food truck outside. Very efficient and fast they call your number and you pick them... More

The burgers here are good. One of the few places you can get buffalo burgers in Houston. They are quite tasty and worth the effort to eat. Resturant does not really have anything but burgers, so be prepared. Sorry, I only gave 3 stars because of this. Hand cut fries, or perhaps a "chicken" burger would be a good addition.

We decided to find a "local' restaurant. We Googled and found Bubbas What do you have to lose when it's a shack under the interstate? There were so many cars in parking lot we decided to give it a try. AMAZING food!!! Really delicious burgers and potato salad!!! When in Houston go where the locals go.

Buffalo burgers are excellent. Jalapeño potato salad is a must - awesome. Friendly staff. Reasonably priced, and serve Lone Star beer.

First time I had a regular burger with bacon, cheese n jalapenos. Second time I tried the buffalo burger with the same toppings....I"m a bacon lover.... More

We are in search of the best burger in Houston. This was recommended by several locals and magazines. The location is underneath the 69 highway near S Rice Ave. You may need to use the GPS to find it. You'll see the Micro Center across the street. It's very casual and low key. Order your burger at the counter inside.... More

This is definitely a divey restaurant. Literally a shack under the freeway. This place looked really sketchy, especially given the fact that we went late at night. However, I went based on the reviews and the fact that they served bison meat. Im glad i did go because i love bison burgers and this place definitely makes the mark. This... More
