This place is just a hole in the wall with limited seating and they only accept cash (ATM inside), but it SERIOUSLY is one of the best burgers I have ever had. DO NOT go here if you are on a diet because you will blow it out of the water. They are that good !!!!

Great burgers. Reasonably priced. Get it to go. Hardly any space to sit. Get it and go sit downtown somewhere.

Just had a super burger n bacon with draft beer at the Hubcap Grill across from AA gate A25-26 at IAH airport. The guy and gal working the bar area gave great service and were smart and friendly. Thanks, I wish you both well; watch out for tsunamis!!

So popped in to grab a burger and noticed that they had a hamburger with Cheetos. WHAT? So of course this was soon to be eaten! Ordered some fries to accompany this crazy combo and it turned out very good. Hamburger was juicy and the cheese and Cheetos where a terrific add to a hamburger. Might sneak some at home... More

This was our first and last time there. We read a review that said best burger in Houston so we wanted to check it out. The burgers were fine ... Nothing amazing but at least handmade patties. The lady ( I'm assuming owner) working the register was beyond rude. She rolled her eyes at us while taking our order ...... More

So here's the deal. This place is literally a hole in the wall. Or should I say a shack on the side of the road. I had heard about this place but definitely didn't picture in my mind what it turned out to be. Here are a few tips. 1. THEY ONLY TAKE CASH. There is an ATM on site... More

If I wasn't recommended to visit I would have never chosen to stop here from its appearance. I ordered the sticky burger which had bacon and peanut butter. My father ordered the mushroom Swiss which had such a delicious flavor to their mushrooms and my husband ordered the double. The buns are perfection and the meat is flavorful. Both the... More

Hubcap grill has always been a top burger in Houston. It's still one of the best. I stay away from garlic fries, they are way too strong.

Burgers were scrumptious. Hatch burger was the bomb. Just be careful if you want mustard on your bun as they use a ot of it.
