Top 10 Burgers in Houston 2013

The rest of the best.

"We thought it only fair for Hungry's on Rice to have its own space, this time called Upstairs, a second floor bar with an extensive wine menu, tastings and bites to enjoy during happy hour or later evening. Two private dining rooms upstairs and one downstairs will be available for your birthdays, special occasions or corporate functions."

The folks behind Little Dipper hosted a preview event on October 12 for customers to check out the new downtown bar before it officially opens. Eater notes that Dawn Callaway, Miriam Carrillo, Scott Repass and Scott Walcott, who all established bar and coffee spots including Poison Girl, Black Hole and Antidote, have designed Little Dipper to be similar to the casual, relaxed atmosphere of the previously mentioned locations — it will also have "serious booze and beer," according to Eater.

In food truck news, Houstonians can rejoice, because two more food truck parks are headed their way, and these two aren't going to be inside the Loop.

CultureMap Houston had reported that My Food Park HTX will open in the Energy Corridor on November 2; the Park's Facebook page had stated that the park's owner, Liz Hale, planned to open the park during lunch hours beginning on October 14. Eric Sandler spoke with Hale, who tells CultureMap that she thinks this one won't be hassled by city inspectors as much as other parks have been. Hale is also the owner of the dessert food truck Zeapod Cakery. Bernie's Burger Bus, Pho-jita Fusion and The Hungry Lumberjack are just a few of the trucks that will join Zeapod Cakery during the grand opening.

And if one food truck park outside the Loop isn't enough, The Leader reports that Mangum Food Park opens this week, more specifically on October 18. Brent Fisk and his girlfriend, Paige Hughes, decided to create the food truck park in this area to "cater to the area's businesses and residential communities," as reported by Charlotte Aguilar of The Leader. Bernie's Burger Bus, H-town StrEATS, Porch Swing Desserts, Speers Rolling Bistro, Cupcake and a Smile, POCKet to Me and Pho-jita Fusion are among the food trucks that have already committed to the park.

The Houston Chronicle reports that previous Food Network Star contestant Susie Jimenez will officially open her new restaurant, Trenza, on November 1. However, she will have a red-carpet opening on October 26, followed by a soft opening October 27-31. The Chronicle notes that Trenza means "braid," which encompasses the style of her restaurant's cuisine; Jimenez will "braid" flavors together in her dishes, such as Asian and Italian mixed with Mexican; how about fried Mexican masa cakes with lamb vindaloo and fennel slaw? Or shrimp dumplings served with a cilantro and lime sauce?

Swamplot reports that the former location of Discount Liquor off Almeda and Rosedale will become a take-out restaurant called Maxwell Street Grill — yeah, we know it's not on Maxwell Street. From the looks of Swamplot's photograph of the location, it appears that construction has yet to begin.

Fat Bao announced to Facebook followers with a photo of a "Now Hiring" sign that a second location will open in Sugar Land. CultureMap says the new venue will be twice the size of the Kirby location, allowing chef Pak Tsui to make broth for ramen every day, rather than on Mondays and Tuesdays only.

It broke my heart when I got back to Texas after being overseas for two years and discovering Johnny Rockets in The Woodlands had closed.  Small chain, but great burgers.
