We’ve already compiled a list of Five Awesomely Outrageous Burgers To Try in Houston – but with so much beefy, juice-dripping, over-loaded burger goodness, we just had to make another one.
Here are FIVE MORE awesomely outrageous burgers to try, just in time for National Hamburger Day:
It’s time to break bad, because this griddled mastermind is “the danger.” The massive club sandwich-burger hybrid comes packed with deviled eggs, turkey, bacon, fresh jalapeño, avocado, white American, pepperjack, pickles and bacon jam. The monstrosity is only available as a special on Thursday, May 28, so be sure to stop by either restaurant to get a taste ($15.75 for a half; $22.75 for a whole).
Homeroom never tasted so good.

Where to get it: Bernie’s Burger Bus, 5407 Bellaire
This sexy half-pounder starts off fresh with a big and greasy Black Angus patty made with beef ground on the daily. Things only get better when it gets stuffed inside a glistening scratchmade bun and topped with a yolky egg, chipotle aioli, drunken onions, cheddar, and thick-cut applewood bacon. Get it for $10.25 – but more importantly, get some more napkins.
Where to get it: Grafitti’s at Union Street, 2003 Union
Made with freshly ground choice chuck, brisket and short rib, Grafitti’s 'burgers steaks' are just as juicy as they are massive. The Imperial is a heart clogger stacked with baked mac and cheese, crispy pickles, fried onion strings, roasted poblano, bacon jam AND sweet brisket. Large and in charge and priced at $17.45, you’d probably be okay splitting this one. Especially because you also want a milkshake.
The Texas Burger truly is roughly the size of Texas.

The Texas Burger
Where to get it: Just Burgers, 16724 Stuebner
With the beef ground fresh every day – which gets packed inside seriously buttery and pretty much addicting housemade pretzel buns – you don’t want to miss these under-the-radar meat bombs. The Texas Burger starts with two (yes two!!!) half-pound patties for $10.99, but you can have a great time adding on things like housemade ancho mayo, grilled pineapple, bacon and swiss cheese. Just be sure to save room for the deep-fried Oreo sundae you're also going to house.
Because burgers and beer just go together.

The Saint Arnold Burger
Where to get it: JerryBuilt Homegrown Burgers, 3501 W. Holcombe
Made with the guys over at Saint Arnold Brewery, this homegrown burger was crafted to pair perfectly with – you guessed it! – Saint Arnold’s brew. The hormone-free and antibiotic-free, 100 percent all natural angus beef patty gets flame-grilled before being smothered with guacamole, L + T, crispy fried jalapeños, smoky bacon and a fiery cholula ranch ($10). Trust us when we say you'll need a beer to wash it all down.
