I stopped by Adrian’s Burger Bar in the 5th Ward this weekend with the intention of eating one of Adrian Cooper’s amazing one-pound burgers. I was saddened to see that Adrian’s has closed its doors.
The old burger joint down the street from Wheatley High School was a neighborhood institution. Adrian’s grandmother ran a bar called Vivian’s that also made burgers for Wheatley High School students years ago.

Adrian’s Burger Bar and its awesome burger won Best Burger Joint in 2003 and Best Vintage Burger in 2005 in the Houston Press Best of Houston Awards. The 5th Ward is going to miss this place. – Robb Walsh
