Lucky Burger - Closed

1601 Richmond Ave. Houston, TX 77006 | Montrose | 713-522-5650

Location Description:

If you've passed this landmark 1975 building that looks like a giant barrel on Richmond and never bothered to venture inside, shame on you. The place offers not only a decent burger and fries but some great fried seafood, too. The interior is tiny, so many people get their food to go. Try the jalapeño cheeseburger or Harold's blue-cheeseburger. And if you tire of beef burgers, then the fish burger, the teriyaki chicken or the veggie burger are all welcome changes. All of the seafood dishes, such as fish and chips or shrimp, are fried. There's a great shrimp-fried rice.
