In the fall of 2016 we knew just Where to Find the 5 Best Burgers in Houston's East End. Well, now there's a new burger joint in town, Alfred’s Burger House. Originally from Floresville, Texas, Alfredo Lopez has been in the neighborhood for more than 20 years. He recently decided to bring his burger house to the lively area.
Alfred's Burger House has one of the most tender, juicy patties you'll find on a burger. They're prepared fresh each day and comprised of ground chuck, top round and brisket. For each order, the patties are seasoned on the grill and combined with crisp veggies and fixings, all held together by tasty buns from Houston's very own Slow Dough Bread Co.
The Bacon Bleu Cheese burger may be the most popular, but The Mexican Burger must be brought to light. This dressed up savory bundle has the addition of avocado, a fried egg, ham and cheese. It is strongly recommended that you try this if and when you visit. You surely won't regret it.
For sides, there are plenty of options. Fresh cut fries, crinkle cut fries, chips, chili cheese fries or double hand-battered onions by the onion ring guy, Albert Gomez. Along with that, Chicken Caesar Salad and Chicken Cobb Salad.
The menu boasts #NotJustBurgers for main items. Also available to guests are chili dogs, hot dogs, chicken tenders and wings. The Buffalo wings are pictured above, but yours truly highly recommends the Lemon Pepper wings. They're crispy and flavorful as is, no sauce needed.
