Best Greasy Spoon Houston 2008 - Lucky Burger
From the outside, Lucky Burger looks more like a greasy bucket than a greasy spoon. You may even think that the food inside this dumpy little corner eatery isn't safe, but inside are some really simple and tasty burgers. The short menu gets to the point with burgers and cheeseburgers, with variations of toppings like jalapeños, bacon, extra meat, blue cheese (really?) and mushrooms, as well as sides of tots and onion rings. There's also fried fish burgers, nuggets, fried rice, chicken-fried steak burger and the teriyaki chicken burger. And don't worry, Lucky Burger has a chili burger — it wouldn't be a greasy spoon if it didn't.
