Heaven: Burger & Shiner

Hot fries, juicy hamburger and ice cold shiner, that's what I'm talking about! I headed to this hole-in-the-wall after reading about it on this site and wasn't disappointed. Really quite a good hamburger and within easy access from downtown. The place is a real joint complete with garage doors so don't expect the ambiance of a fine restaurant. Great hangout for a drink and conversation.

It really IS the best burger

Have been several times and have never been disappointed. It really is the best hamburger I have had anywhere. The challenge is to find a level table.

best damn hamburger in houston

This is a great hamburger place. Also, they have
great Taco's and Hot Sauce that is out of this world.
Home made chips too. The other food is very good
also.

Don't judge a book by it's cover.

Parking is not the best. (Like that's new in Houston!) But the food is well worth what they charge. Especially during the week when it's not too busy.

Old time

Great burgers and love the funky decor. This is a real old timey place with great old timey hamburgers. The service is always good.....and save room for dessert.

Eat where the cops and painters eat

I lived in the Montrose for years and this was easily my favorite breakfast place. Just sneak over the line into the Ward and you're in for one of Houston's undiscovered treats.

Breakfast is great--I've never made it for lunch--and always felt like I was sitting in mom's kitchen.

I am on a Burgerquest and am in search of the best burger in town. So far Lankford's is the best I've had in Houston, let alone the rest of the country on all of my travels.

fabulous find

Try this unique find for a fun and delicious meal. Locals rub elbows with movers and shakers...all are equal here and come with a single mission: scarfing up the best burger in town. They are made to order, big and messy. Good daily specials also. Stop by and say ""Hi"" to Edie and crew. Do not, I repeat, DO NOT ever mention bowling. You're in dangerous territory!

Home of the best burger in town, Lankford is also unbeatable for its onion rings and its breakfast.

FED UP

We are tired of you standing over us while we try to finish our enchiladas. It used to be a pleasure to scrape the remnants of cheese, onion and heavenly gravy from our blue plate special. Now I feel the hair standing up on my neck that you're breathing down, impatient for a table. If my mama cooked that good, I'd visit her more often.

After the enchilada onslaught, we found solace at Saturday breakfast. Ya'll found out about that now we have to call ahead to see if the tables are in a conga line for breakfast. Did you know they won't serve french toast if they're out of powdered sugar? It's just wacky but we love it. Anyway, you newcomers need to lighten up a little bit or else you're gonna break the kitchen - and while you're standing in line - close the door!
Signed,
A regular

great produce!

Really fresh produce and good cuts of meat. The selection is pretty broad for a smaller grocery store.

The Best In Town

If you want to taste an old fashion burger try this place like someone told me and I'm passing it on your first visit you should try the burgers and after that you will be hooked then try the breakfast. basically it's just good old fashion cooking.

Great hamburgers! Don't go for the ambiance tho.
Actually all food has been great. But like every other restaurant in the city---PLEASE start cleaning the outside of the salt and pepper shakers. That goes for EVERY restuarant in Houston. Gritty and greasy shakers--yuk!

I don,t kjnow who CMK1126 and BEARNOT are, but they obviously had a bad day, and needed someone to blame it on. They chose Lankfords. I think the numbers, and my taste buds, speak for themselves.45 out of 50 reviews, 5 star, 3 reviews, 4 star, only 2 give 1 star. Guess who. I've been a patron of Lankfords for 15 years and have yet to be dissapointed with the fare or the service. Sure, there have been times when the wait for service might have seemed a bit long, but that speaks to the fact that, at lunch time, all the tables, inside and out are packed with longtime regulars who don't mind waiting to get a truely memorable, and satisfying, meal. A dump? I don't think so. Old, for sure. The building has been at the corner of Dennis and Genesee since 1937, and was a grocery store before Eydie turned it into a Cafe and Ice House (More Cafe than Ice House, but you can have a beer with your lunch. Only long necks, though, which is the choice of true Texans). It might look out of place surrounded by new Townhomes that have sprung up in the last few years, but it's refreshing to see this anachronism of the 4th ward, that hasn't yet been swept away by Urban Renewal. Long live Lankfords, and Eydie, the proprietess, who makes your day a little brighter when you stop in for a truely remarkable, old fashioned, Hamburger .

None Better!

After eating here at least once a week for over 3 years, I still have yet to be have anything less than great food! Burgers are juicy and sloppy, just the way you remember them as a kid. Ambience has improved greatly with the addition of watermelon tablecloths and Eydie's ""frying pan"" bowling trophy for rolling a 213 in league play!

Best Burger in Town!

Truly the best - a homestyle burger like I remember from my childhood. If you care about ambience this isn't the place to go, but if you just want great food this is it.
