Voted Houston’s best burger by Houston Press in 2012, Bernie’s is an H-town institution. My recommen- dation is the Homeroom burger. Bacon, fried egg, caramelized onions, chipotle aoli, cheese, and beef sandwiched between a buttery toasted bun. Not quite messy enough for you? Check out LANKFORD GROCERY for a little piece of Houston history. This Midtown monument opened in 1939 as a grocery store and has been in business ever since. While they have over a dozen burgers on the menu, the king of them is the massive Grim Burger. The Grim consists of a huge patty, topped with mac & cheese, bacon, jalapeno, and a sunny side egg. Don’t be afraid to take half home, and always grab extra napkins. 1.Hearsay Gastro Lounge | www.hearsayhouston.com 2.Bubba’s Texas Burger Shack | www.bubbastexasburgershack.com 3.Lankford Grocery | www.facebook.com/pages/Lankford-Grocery-Market 4.Bernie’s Burger Bus | www.berniesburgerbus.com Bernie’s Burger Bus Lankford Grocery 4 3 september 17 | L O C A L 43
