Freshness is Prime at Becks, Houston’s Own
At Becks Prime, a homegrown Houston institution, they like to brag that there are no microwaves, and that the only use for their freezers is to frost the beer mugs. That’s because everything at the 28-year-old chain is fresh –– a fact easy to discern on its full menu of inventive burgers that’s landed Becks on Texas Monthly’s 10 Best List and caused the tough Zagat’s guide to gush, “Best burgers, bar none. Real fries, and heavenly, thick milkshakes.”
Becks burgers are a half-pound meal on a fresh bun, all patties made of house-ground Angus chuck roast, distinctively grilled-to-order over mesquite wood coals. It’s an upscale, customized take on fast food classics, with fries, onion rings and milk shakes as accompaniment.
There are equally sophisticated hotdogs and non-burger sandwich options, plus a dinner menu that features steaks, tuna and chicken –– but it’s the burgers that are the soul of the 14-restaurant business, two of them in Dallas.
The Heights Becks is in a building that matches the historic character of the neighborhood, at 115 W. 19th St. (phone 713-470-1176), and there are nearby locations at the golf course at Memorial Park, and a huge “sportatorium” with walls of TVs and a full bar at Memorial City Mall.
