Location Description:

Cream Burger has been serving hot burgers, fries, dogs and shakes to UH students and Third Ward residents for decades. The burgers aren't gourmet, but they are a solid example of what you can expect from a Texas-style burger stand. Prices are very cheap and service is friendly, so long as you stay off your cell phone while you order.
