Return to the Scene of the Hubcap

Quickly - I was advised to revisit Hubcap Grill.  I had two friends tell me that I simply didn't try the "right" burger on my previous visit.  I reiterated that I always like to try the same hamburger on all my burger adventures in order to do an accurate comparison.  But, I determined it was okay to think outside of the box for my second visit.

At the advice of a co-worker, I tried the Philly Cheese Steak Burger, which consisted of a beef patty, thinly sliced rib-eye steak, grilled onions, green bell peppers, Swiss cheese & our special mayo sauce.  I added nothing more, and ate it all-the-way.  And, I literally ate my words.  This burger was excellent.  From the moment I saw the delivered product, which looked succulent and delicious, to my first bite to the last!  I enjoyed the myriad of flavors and scents.  However, I'm still not as impressed with the buns as my burger buddy Mark is, but the rest of the experience was a damn good one.  I recommend it highly, and thanks to Shane at CA for the awesome recommendation.  I highly suggest that you stop by Hubcap Grill and eat my words soon!

What Is All The Fuss?

So, you've heard of Hubcap Grille - you know the place.  The "Houston Institution", home of the best burger in Houston.  Really?  I don't agree.  Stopped by for a burger lunch yesterday, and I was not overly impressed.  I ordered my usual - you've heard it before.  Bacon chesseburger, medium, with onions, lettuce and light mayo.  The mayo was totally bland, the burger (while cooked perfectly and quite juicy) was nothing special taste-wise, the bun was unappealing, but the fries were very good, which seems to be the case when the burger is nothing special.  See the pic below - looks rather bland.

A co-worker of mine said their Philly Cheesesteak was excellent, so maybe I'll try that on my next visit.  HCG is blocks from my office, so I'm sure I'll eat there again.  A burger buddy of mine commented that HCG was "so 2012".  Maybe I just missed it by a year - late as usual!
