The Bakkhus Burger at Bakkhus Taverna in Kemah

A spot known for its tender gyros and cheesy pastitsio, Bakkhus Taverna just happens to serve up a few incredible burgers too. The Bakkhus burger is a beef patty marinated in red wine and topped with sautéed onion and mushroom, feta cheese, Greek spices, lettuce and tomato. Sink your teeth into the warm bun and velvety mound of salty feta as the burger’s juices drip down your chin. Grab a Greek coffee and a slice of baklava cheesecake to round out this satisfying experience.

The Ross at Preamble Lounge and Craft House in Webster

Appropriately named after Betsy Ross to keep with the lounge’s theme, this gourmet burger is made with a handmade char-crusted Texas Kobe-style Akaushi beef patty and topped with caramelized apples, crisp candied bacon and creamy smoked Gouda and served on a warm brioche bun. The apple and smoked Gouda, combined with the perfectly seasoned patty, give your taste buds a rich, sweet surprise. Pair it with an apple-inspired cocktail for the ultimate experience at this 21-plus speakeasy-inspired lounge, which offers signature cocktails designed to satisfy and entertain till the last sip. The impressive menu also includes items such as salt- and pepper-crusted ribs with blueberry barbecue sauce and filet mignon skewers with housemade chimichurri.
