Burger report: Chronicle picks

Huh, more proof that the Chronicle’s website is just weird: They have the burger slideshow back up now. It wasn’t there when I made my post a few days ago, and it wasn’t there at 8:00 this morning when I did my daily read of the Chronicle’s headlines. Maybe the fact that I’ve searched the Chronicle’s website repeatedly for “best burger” over the last week or so has convinced them that people are looking for the slideshow.

Apparently, the Chronicle also has a Burger Friday blog that continually checks out burger joints. Their current review is on Otto’s in the tunnels downtown, but given that our research has constraints, like the fact that we don’t work downtown and therefore won’t go pay to park there (even if we could find a space) just to get to the tunnels, we won’t be reviewing that.

I can say now, too, that the most unappetizing-looking burgers in the slideshow were the ones from Champ Burger, which has been getting a lot of press lately. I’m not adding it to our research list, though, because the photo looks awful, despite the great reviews it gets. Similarly, although the Wunsche Bros. Saloon photo looks heavenly, and they, too, have gotten great reviews elsewhere, since it’s in Old Town Spring (about 45 minutes away), I’m crossing that one off the list, too.

In other words, I’m not promising an exhaustive report on burgers in Houston. Like everything else on this blog, my reviews will be highly subjective.

    Like Burgerdoon, emerging from the Highland (Village?) mists.
