A few weeks ago, my mom texted me from the county courthouse, where she was waiting on her husband to be released from jury duty, and I immediately arranged to meet them for lunch. I had the perfect place - Hubcap Grill. Their downtown location at 1111 Prairie is between my office and the courthouse (a bit closer to the courthouse). Perfect! Hubcap Grill is the most unlikely looking burger place I have ever seen. It's a tiny, cinder block building that seats maybe 12 people with an attached covered patio with additional (non-air-conditioned) seating, and it's decorated with hubcaps (surprise). It reminded me of an old fashioned gas station, back when full service was still the norm.

The meal was definitely worth the long walk - and the exercise was a helpful start to burning off all the calories I consumed. I'm ready to go back again to try that Greek Burger, so if you're in downtown Houston and you're looking for a great burger and a lunch date... give me a call! Oh, and if you go to Hubcap Grill, make sure you take cash... they don't accept anything else. Happy eating!
