Little Bigs

The folks from Reef seem to have struck gold with their idea to serve Houston gourmet-style sliders and fries in a casual, counter-service environment. Tiny burger options at the popular Montrose spot include chicken, beef or black bean. Former Houston Press food critic Robb Walsh thinks they have some of the best fries in town. And if you want to get adventurous, try the Dude, a white Russian-flavored shake with actual booze in it. The interior here is a bit sterile, but patio is expansive and shady.
