Southwell's is located just blocks from Houston's internationally renowned Medical Center in a strip center with plenty of free, on site parking. A very small place but with seating inside and out, Southwell's offers a fresh cooked, all beef burger alternative to the McDonald's and Whataburger just across the street. Lots of toppings, burgers cooked to order, and fresh, crisp... More

Southwell's makes a good, old fashioned hamburger. I do not especially like the processed cheese they use on their hamburgers and would like them to upgrade to a better quality. However, I have never had a bad burger here. And, I love the fat onion rings. The staff is friendly and prompt.

My wife and I just left MD Anderson and were hungry and looking for a lunch place. Stopped by Southwell's by shear chance. I've never heard of this chain let alone eaten here. Great little find. The food was great and the prices, while a little high weren't bad for the area. I would say it is like an upscale... More

Southwells burgers are home style burgers that satisfy your hunger for juicy hamburgers with all the fixings. Their onion rings are greasy, and their French fries are average.

I was tired of "corporate burgers" but still hungered for a good burger. On my first visit I was impressed by how clean the place was. It was just as clean on our second visit, They have a large selection of burgers: Cheese, Jalapenio, Mushroom, Veggie, and everything in between. This is a sit-down restaurant after you place your order... More

Very good prices. Pleasant atmosphere and nice an clean. The food was very good considering the reasonable price. I have to agree with a previous reviews that the beer battered onion rings are excellent.

This place is not pretending to be anything hip or fancy and I just love that. It's located in a strip mall, which I would typically avoid because... Well, strip malls speak for themselves. But I read some great reviews online and after a ridiculously long work day at the hospital decided to try them out. First, the people are... More

Our family ate lunch here in July of 2015. Lunch is ordered at a counter and then a server brings your order to your table. My daughter and I ordered lemonade which was good and my husband enjoyed his milk shake. My husband and I each ordered a turkey burger and both were good. Our daughter enjoyed her hamburger. The...
