Grilled meat beats Houston summer heat
It is no doubt that this summer is a hot one. The temperatures continue to reach the triple digits, and there is still no rain fall in sight.
Some local eateries have conjured up the perfect match of burgers and beers to keep your tummy full without adding to the heavy, dragging feeling that heat gives you.
Dry Creek is located in The Heights, and like her sister restaurants such as Onion Creek, Cedar Creek and Canyon Creek, it serves great food and drinks. Dry Creek’s burger menu is sure to please and their “West Coast Burger” is certainly a summer hit. This fresh sandwich is a turkey burger on a brioche bun topped with asadero cheese, avocado, cucumber, sprouts and a lemon aioli served alongside sweet potato fries.
Dry Creek doesn’t serve any kind of alcohol, but patrons are all welcome to bring their favorite brews or bubbly in. If you forgot your favorite libation, they have homemade Italian sodas that are out of this world to wash down your burger and fries.
Red Lion is a traditional British Pub that serves up classic pub fare like fish and chips and Shepard’s Pie.
It is also known for its Monday night burger special — for only $7 you can get a cheeseburger, hamburger, or four mini-burgers along with a heap of fresh-cut fries. Not only does this pub serve up the freshest food and coldest beers, they have the best service in town. Every waitress, bartender and manager in sight is always wearing a smile and greeting customers with friendly hellos upon their arrival. This is a place to keep you out of the heat and give you some time to relax with your friends while you enjoy a great summer burger.
The brand new Christian’s Tailgate on Washington has been the buzz around Houston since its opening earlier this summer. This bar and grill serves up some of the best burgers Houston has to offer. Not only do they have traditional burgers, but they also serve their burgers with unique toppings like green chili and fried eggs.
The favorite around there is the Country Fried Bacon Burger — if that is not something that pairs perfectly with a cold one, I don’t know what will.
Miller’s Cafe has been around Houston for over 20 years, and now they have four Houston-area locations.
This burger joint is special because they still cook their burgers on a griddle and serve them with the freshest toppings, all in between their famous poppyseed buns.
This place is delicious and will satisfy your taste buds without breaking the bank.
When thinking of things that remind you of summer, burgers and barbecue are some of the first that come to mind. If you don’t want to be the only one left in the summer heat over an open flame, let one of Houston’s burger joints serve up their best burger to you.
