Best Burger In Houston

Don't expect fast service ... that said... this is the best burger in town. Eating a Soldier Burger with an extra egg and bacon is the way I want to die.

The Emperor has no Flavor

We first tried this legendary place a few weeks after Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives aired the segment filmed here, and the line was far too long to wait for a burger. So we went to Christian's Tailgate where we were blown away by the tasty burgers. Today we were excited to be in the area again, because it was a Monday, and rainy and late in the lunch hour! We did get the last indoor table and placed our order for th... view more

Good food horrible service

I was so excited to try Lankford because I heard so many good reviews from it. I was quite confused when I entered the door because I did not know how the system worked. Once my boyfriend and I found a table it took about 5 minutes for someone to ask us for a beverage. I noticed that we were getting the least attention out of everyone in the restaurant (we are Asian). The waitresses were smiling to everyone but us. W... view more

I got an old-fashioned bacon cheeseburger with the Tex-Mex, fried onion and jalapeno strips. The bacon was a good choice and the toppings were heaping. But the cheese and seasoning didn't do it for me, neither did the the Tex-Mex side.

Good Old Fashioned Hamburger

Great Hamburgers and they are way too big for me to finish. Place is old with some patched up furniture and that is how they can keep their price down. If that bother you then this is not the place for you. The services are good. We got there on a Saturday morning around 11:00. Place is not crowded and we got our food in a reasonable time. This is going to be one of our favorite places for a good old fashioned ... view more

The glasses with old food stuck to them were a nice touch to start out the experience. The table which was beyond filthy.. ugh. We asked to get it cleaned, she starts wiping it down, throwing the dirty food in our laps, almost on purpose it seemed. \r \r Food wasn't that great. No need to go back. It's not worth the block and a half you get to walk since there is zero parking. If i lived across the street from this... view more

Lankford Grocery

I grew up eating these burgers, and for decades not once did they displease, every bite enjoyable. Due to various circumstances I moved, but when I return I make it a point to return to this ""LG"" at least once per visit. I normally order a burger with fried onions, guacamole and cheese, a belt buster for sure, but when you eat it once or twice a year, not so bad. This last time had me glaring at my burger mouth aga... view more

Waste of time

I had heard about what great burgers they served. What a disappointment. Took forever to even get our food because the ""kitchen got messed up"". Everyone seated after us already had their food. They didn't have any chicken and one of our party wanted a grilled chicken sandwich. Also didn't have any french fries - that's totally weird. The burger was way overcooked, too dry and absolutely no flavor. My husband... view more

great food, hardworking staff

I am replying back to the person who commented on the waitstaff at Lankford's (Robin) She is a hard working waitress, who works her tail off for the customers. She may at times seem aggravated, but that is just part of her charm. She means no harm! If you had to wait on the amount of people that the waitstaff at Lankford's does, believe me u might get a little overwhelmed at times yourself. AND U who called her n... view more

Did not live up to the hype

I was very excited to finally try a burger at Lankford Grocery. I've read that the burgers are unbeatable. I found my burger to be in great need of seasoning and dry. We were seated for about 10 minutes before our order was taken. It was not worth the hour drive for this meal.
