Beaver Burger

Every now and then, a second location and concept change creates an entirely new dining adventures. Such is the case at Beaver’s. Their Westheimer location in the Galleria area is an oasis of food, drink, entertainment and a “dam” good hamburger.

Seated in the rustic dining room, the friendly staff brought out their appetizing menu. The Beaver Burger had my name on it. A succulent juicy thick 44 Farms beef patty topped with white cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, house pickles (my new favorite condiment) and onion topped with a toasted challah bun. Served with house-made potato chips, this burger was bursting with flavor. The sharpness of the cheddar cheese contrasted nicely with the char-encrusted patty and the sweet pickles - an explosion of flavors with each bite.

Beaver’s does not try to be something it isn’t. They offer savory comfort food in a casual setting. The outdoor seating and bar area is adorned with lawn games, the perfect setting for an outdoor burger adventure. So, the next time you are driving down Westheimer, and hunger strikes, stop by Beaver’s for a burger that does not disappoint.

Lucky Burger No 5

Gourmet hamburgers have come a long way over the last decade. They are now offered on menus at restaurants serving fine cuisine. Tiny’s No. 5 is a culinary delight in West University, and their menu is no exception. I recently enjoyed their Lucky Burger for lunch with my burger buddies.

The Lucky Burger is piled high with two ground in-house patties and adorned with cheddar cheese that melted evenly on all sides of the burger. with house-made pickles and a side of lucky sauce, this burger was a combination of tantalizing flavor explosions. A nicely charred crust on the patties kept juices flowing with each bite. The brioche bun was perfectly toasted and held firm throughout the burger experience. Some brioche buns fall apart with the first bite, but Tiny’s creates heavenly baked goods. A generous side of thinly crisp sweet potato fries was a nice compliment to the hamburger.

While this is definitely a two-handed burger, I suggest cutting in half (or divorcing) just to get a look at the beautiful hamburger you are about to enjoy. I am eagerly looking forward to my next (Lucky) burger adventure.
