Houston Fine Dining

We learned about Little Big's on the food blog, Serious Eats. It's a drive-in type place that sells sliders -- little hamburgers the size of a clementine, three for $6 -- in Houston. We were skeptical that this place was all the nouvelle vague of food in Houston as the website indicated because they're recommendations for Denver were so old school, but here we were in Houston, driving down Montrose Boulevard and there was Little Big's.

little-bigs_burgers.jpgIt's December so no one is sitting on the outdoor picnic tables, and the inside was a little close, but maybe I'm just not used to the humidity. The beef is ground on premise and the potatoes cut into beefy sticks there as well. Caramelized onions on the little burgers make them very delicious on their house-backed buns. There were several nice wines to chose from and beer on tap.

If this is the new trend in fast food, then that's better news than free wi-fi at French McDonalds.
