You know what's even more taboo than foot fetishes and pig-human relations? Admitting you like Becks Prime.

But in Joanna O'Leary's post about the Becks California burger, commenter Sugarlandin tried to clear the fancy chain's name.

I often see and hear the same attitude toward Becks Prime:

"Against my will" "I had thus far avoided" "rolling my eyes every time someone else proclaims their love for the Becks burger" "I wasn't about to waste my time "

I'm curious Joanna, why the resistance in the first place?

Becks Prime is a family-owned, local company that has the fortunate success to be able to open multiple locations giving them the stigma of a "chain." GASP!

I'm happy you gave it a try and gave it a good review. I love Becks Prime but I get so tired of people acting like there is something taboo about liking them.

Well said, Sugarlandin. Enjoy your next Becks burger under the rosy glow of this, your very own leg lamp.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
