Best Cheeseburger Houston 2005 - Stanton's Super Market
The plainest burger on the menu at this rundown convenience store is the best bacon cheeseburger in the city. Get it "all the way," and savor your half-pound, hand-formed beef patty on an oversize well-toasted sesame-seed bun topped with lettuce, tomato, pickles, mayo, mustard, red onions, two strips of bacon and an ample amount of American cheese. Variations include the "Rio jalapeno burger" (with pickled peppers), the "BBQ blues burger" (with barbecue sauce) and the "Tex-Mex burger" (with salsa). The patty melt is a plain cheeseburger served on Texas toast. In business since 1961, Stanton's Super Market specializes in beer, cigarettes and lottery tickets. There's no place to sit down -- the burgers are to-go only -- so you better have a plan in mind for where you're going to go to eat your lunch.
