Squable Burger

My absence from this blog does not mean I have stopped eating hamburgers. On the contrary - there are so many great burgers in Houston, I am just busy trying them all. There are several burger blogs I need to post, but one deserves immediate attention.

The French Cheeseburger from Squable is a serious contender in the Houston burger scene. To set up the scene, their rendition is a stout beef patty, raclette (pale Alpine cheese from Switzerland), butter, and pickles, on a house-baked pain de mie bun, and served with fries. This description does not give the burger justice, but the photo below does. The white cheese envelops a thick juicy patty that was nicely charred at the requested temperature of medium. While not usually a fan of pickles on my burger, I can’t imagine the French Cheeseburger without the tartness of the cornichon pickles, which added to the contrast of flavors. At $17, and served with simply prepared fries that were crunchy on the outside with a tender middle, this burger was quite a savory mouthful. I had to push the plate away for fear of over-indulging on the fries. Try it for yourself, and you will agree that this burger is definitely something to squabble over.

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.
