Your West Houston Apartments Hit the Burger Scene

Your West Houston Apartments Hit the Burger Scene

Here at Alexan Ashford, we’re proud of the fact that our residents love to hang out at our Memorial apartments. With 80” TVs in the community clubhouse and a resort-style pool in the courtyard, who wouldn’t want to spend their afternoons and evenings here?


Of course, you can only enjoy those amenities if you manage to pry yourself away from your luxury apartment. When Alexan Ashford was built, the designers worked hard to set a new standard of luxury for West Houston apartments. That’s why our residents get to enjoy soaring 10” ceilings,  under cabinet kitchen lighting and Nest thermostats. It’s all part of the total luxury package that we offer here at Alexan Ashford.


This bi-monthly blog is another part of the luxury package. What good is a premier location if you don’t know about the best restaurants and events happening in Houston? We use this blog as a tool to keep our residents informed, so you never have to experience a dull moment during your time at Alexan Ashford.


This week, we’re talking burgers. You always have the option of grilling some burgers up on the outdoor grill and summer kitchen at Alexan Ashford, but sometimes it’s nice to let someone else do all the work while you do all the eating. Houston residents know what it takes to create a good burger, and Houston restaurant owners have to rise up the challenge. These restaurants have done it, and they serve of the very best burgers in Houston.


Stanton’s City Bites


Stanton’s serves juicy burgers with names like Truck Stopper, Miss Piggy and the Cowboy Brunch, so you know they’re gonna be good. Some Yelp reviewers went so far as to recommend that you wear comfy clothes when you go here, as your waistline might be expanding a bit.


Bernie’s Burger Bus


The owners of Bernie’s Burger Bus really set their restaurant apart as a burger joint by creating their own ketchup and mustard. Having those unique, authentic condiments sometimes makes all the difference. Plus, you might find yourself going to Bernie’s time and time again just to check out their rotating burgers of the month.


The Shack


Can we interest you in a bacon cheeseburger that comes in between a couple of honeybuns? Yeah, we thought so. The Shack is a no-frills place that just knows how to serve great burgers. It’s also extremely affordable, and you’ll likely leave with a huge box of leftover fries at the end of your meal.


The Hubcap Grill


Have you ever had a burger with peanut butter? Don’t knock it until you try it, and don’t try it anywhere but The Hubcap Grill. You’ll have to bring cash, but that just makes the whole dining experience feel a little more authentic. The burgers are crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. The buns are nice and soft. It’s all good at The Hubcap Grill.


The Hay Merchant


Some burgers are flat, some are thick, and some are round all around. At the Haymaker, the burgers are tall. You’ll have to put in some serious effort to take a bite, but we promise it will be worth it. They also have soft pretzels, sweet and spicy pig ears and the incredibly named “Cease and Desist Burger.” Any self-respecting Houston foodie has to give The Hay Merchant a shot.
