Bubba's Texas Burger Shack

We have made a decision to try to eat at restaurants specific to Houston and/or Texas during our last months here before we move. Saturday night was no exception. We have seen Bubba's - under the Westpark Tollway, across the feeder road from Sam's - ever since we moved here. But, it's a little shady-looking. And, seems to be in a bit of a precarious location - under the tollway and all. We also weren't sure how family-friendly it would be since it usually has a lot a motorcycles parked out front. We were very pleasantly surprised when we got there, though. Aside from running into some friends we haven't seen in ages (since before Will's appendectomy last December!), the food and atmosphere were great. Will and I each had a buffalo burger and the kids enjoyed a grilled cheese (with extra pickles).

We learned from our friends that Bubba's has been around forever...which explains why it is where it is - Bubba was there first! It was across from a train depot and served $1 beer whenever there was a shift change or a new arrival. The sign just made me laugh - I don't know why they bothered putting the 'g' on the end of 'have' - a 3 would have worked just fine.
