Best Burger Houston 2007 - T-Bone Tom's Steakhouse Restaurant

Readers' Choice: Lankford Grocery

T-Bone Tom's is a Kemah meat market that morphed into a restaurant. The burgers are exceptional, thanks in large part to the quality of the hamburger meat, which is ground fresh daily on the premises. The meat is formed into a distinctive square patty in your choice of a quarter-pound or half-pound size. Both are cooked to order and served with the customary lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles, mayo and mustard on a toasted bun. Customized versions include a cheeseburger, a jalapeño burger, a mushroom-Swiss burger and a bacon-Swiss burger. There is also a heavenly ­hamburger-steak dinner with brown gravy and grilled onions. You can enjoy your burger inside the meat market or out on the deck, which is known as Tom's Backyard. There's live music seven nights a week outside. And there's nothing like a reggae tune, a sea breeze and a cold beer to make a burger taste better.

Are you serious? Did you actually go there, and were you mad at the traditional perennial inner-city Houston winners, the producers of real memorable hand-made quality two-fisted, gut-stuffing, mouth-watering Texas burgers to die for ( Lankford's and Christian's need fear nothing), or was the goal to expand the circulation to the city's outskirts, (shame, shame if true), albeit in a desperate attempt to acknowledge achievement regardless of accomplishment? When presented with the 2007 Best Of H... issue, the manager either feigned ignorance or rivalled Meryl Streep for best acting job of the century.

When you award such mediocrity and offer no real defense, it cheapens the entire process, instilling doubt where none had presided, cheapening the legitimacy of the process.

I submit that T-bone Tom's is not even worthy of top 25 status as far as Houston burgers go, and really wonder what the criteria is to determine the Best of Anything, anytime, anywhere in the Houston area.
