5 Best Burger Restaurants in Texas

Visual Freedom


As the saying goes, Texas has it all. That also applies to their delicious burgers. For some of the heartiest burgers, you'll ever sink your teeth into, check out these excellent burger restaurants in Texas:

Texas Burger, Texas

Texas Burger is a Texas-state chain with six locations across Odessa, Midland, and Andrews. Since 1967, Texas Burger has served all-Angus hamburgers topped with cherry pepper. So you can't talk about Texas burgers without talking about Texas burgers.

Bobby D. Cox purchased the first Texas Burger from the Copen family in Odessa, Texas, when he was operating a '50s style drive-in restaurant named after his son called Danny's Drive-In #2. The success of that early Texas Burger led Mr. Cox to develop new concepts in the restaurant business, including Taco Villa and Rosa's Cafe. All three companies take great pride in having West Texas roots and are household names throughout Texas and New Mexico.

Bubba's Texas Burger Shack, Texas

With delicious food, local beer, a large patio, and HD TVs, Bubba's Texas Burger Shack has been nicknamed "the burger shack under the freeway." The Shack has been around since the 1980s and helped popularize the buffalo burger. Check out their physical location under the freeway or their roving food truck.

Over 30 years ago, Bubba's Texas Burger Shack served Houston's best Buffalo burgers. Although increasingly more people are becoming aware of its benefits, buffalo has grown in popularity in recent years. Buffalo is generally grass-fed, and they do not require hormones or antibiotics to remain healthy. Buffalo meat is also naturally lean and low in cholesterol.

Twisted Root Burger Co., Texas

Twisted Root Burger Co. has 15 locations throughout the Lone Star State, each with a different theme based on site. For example, the Arlington location, less than a mile from Cowboy's Stadium, is tail-gating themed. Roanoke has an eclectic dive theme. TV shows from all over the world have visited various locations to take in the themes. But Twisted Root doesn't get by on theme alone: the burgers, made from your choice of exotic meat plus buffalo and wagyu meat, are the star of the show. 

It's impossible to find anyone else quite like Twisted Root, with its high-quality made-to-order burgers, its casual environment, and its strange reverence for Chuck Norris. So when gourmet burgers weren't a thing, Jason Boso and Quincy Hart decided to create a restaurant specializing in fresh-ground, half-pound burgers and letting customers customize their burgers with crazy and inventive toppings.
