I have been very excited about posting this blog. First of all, Stanton City Bites offers the best burgers in Houston! For that matter, some of the best burgers I have ever eaten come from Stanton's. Second generation owned by the family of the late Art Fong, these burgers are total deliciousness defined. The meat (chuck) is ground daily on site with brisket, for a sweet taste to balance out the salty flavors of the burger. Last night, with two friends, I enjoyed my regular - Bacon Chesseburger with a light amount of mayo, lettuce, onions, jalapeños, and a fried egg - topped on a homemade Challah bun, along with FRIED BACON ON THE SIDE!!!!! This was perfection - the egg lightly oozed as I took my first bite. And the taste just kept getting better until my plate was clean. Add onion rings, scrumptious Italian seasoned fries, and fried pickles (using their new and improved recipe with panko/breadcrumbs), and you have the best meal in town. Okay, so it's not the healthiest, but I sure felt great after I finished eating. Everyone concurred - this was the best burger ever!
Side note, the late owner's wife, Theresa, runs the place now, and her goal is to make the best burger possible. She told us last night that she can tell if she makes a bad burger, and that upsets her most. She is so committed to making Stanton's a great experience. She presented us with one of her "whipped up" items last night - stuffed grilled red pepper that had chicken cheese and corn inside, along with her secret spices. Talk about an explosion of flavors! Delicious.
So, you have to eat at Stanton's - no ifs, ands, or butts....and eat there often. Theresa will be glad you came, and so will you! Just like Maite and Kerman were glad they came! Great to be with you both!
