The burger competition continues to heat up with the September 2010 addition of the Burger Guys. Owner/chefs Steve Marques and Jake Mazzu serve up hand-formed, outside-the-box creations made with locally-sourced ingredients from Hatterman Farms and Houston Dairymaids, among other area proprietors.
Set in west Houston, the biz turns out gourmet burgers touting everything from Texas’ Kobe-style Akaushi beef and fried duck-eggs to Fancy Lawnmower Ale Mustard and Tobasco-mash aioli. Marques and Mazzu mix up more than just stellar sandwiches, too, also taking on Chicago-style hot dogs, house-made ice cream and old-fashioned drinks made with Imperial sugar. Expect a menu loaded with creative burger varieties—named and inspired by U.S. and international cities—like the golden-beet-and-egg-topped Sydney Burger or the Saigon with butter, pate, pickled carrot, radish, jalapeno and cilantro.
Burger Guys is open Monday through Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.
