Stanton's burgers are fantastic. Made to order just like you want 'em, with juice that can run down your arm. Why they don't replace the weird convenience store food-in-racks with nice tables to invite more people to eat on a dine-in basis is beyond me. Maybe they would have to rehab the bathroom if they did that. Go for the burgers, not for the ambience.

After nearly 2 years of looking, I have found a delicious hamburger. Really easy to find, but parking at lunch time is pretty scarce. However, do as I did and be patient and the payoff is there. The homemade onion roll has a great toasty texture, the meat is cooked perfect to medium, and it was just delicious. Wish it were bigger, but then I would get bigger.....

The overall feel is that of an old building with some folding tables and chairs, and that's what it is and what makes the atmosphere enjoyable.

Absolutely the best burger I have ever had, bar none. Very cool atmosphere in an old grocery store. I have no idea what they do to the burgers but whatever they do, they do it right! If you haven't been there and love burgers, do yourself a favor and give this place a try. If you go at lunch time, get there before noon or be prepared to wait, it gets packed.

We found Stanton's by chance and stopped in for a hamburger (God's gift to the stomach) and this place was it. It is located in the Houston Fourth Ward area in what was an old corner market and now houses the restaurant with picnic type tables, every craft beer you can imagine, soft drinks you never heard of (and those you have as well) and the 1/2 pound burgers are freshly made from hamburger which the chef has pressed into burgers, on great buns, and accompanying fries, etc which are also excellent. Tried other sandwiches, such as the club, and it was one of the best ever. DON'T MISS IT!!!!
