Top Burger Joints in Beaumont
Southeast Texas is an area known for its meat and the burger business here is booming! From pineapple teriyaki to a fried egg special or even toppings like peanut butter, the burger game here is strong. Put on your stretchy pants and check out these delicious patties worthy of your attention. Whether it’s double-stacked, all-beef patties with tomato jam, or two, twin bite-sized burger sliders, you won’t be disappointed with what the area has to offer. But how do you choose?
The ultimate burger depends on a variety of factors. Firstly, the perfect balance of beef, namely the fat-to-meat ratio. We don’t want too much grease and just the right texture and bite. Next, dressing the inside and outside of the bun with seasonings and gourmet condiments is a must. Finally, the perfect bun needs to be sturdy enough for the burger to reach its final destination—your mouth—still maintaining it’s structure.

“It’s Willy, Willy good” is the saying out front and they don't lie. Every Texas town needs a doo-wop 50s-style diner, and we have just that with Willy Burger. Once named “Best Burger” on “The Texas Bucket List” television show, this half eatery, half converted airstream takes novelty burgers to a whole new level. Each Certified Angus 1/3 pound hamburger patty served is made fresh to order, but if you’ looking beyond red meat, they also offers a tasty Portobello mushroom burger, fried soft shell crab burger and an ahi tuna burger. If you're wondering what to order, they're not afraid to push the envelope on creativity.
Have you ever met Uncle Charlie? Well, at Willy Burger Uncle Charlie is an out of this world burger with 3 strips of bacon, onion rings topped with BBQ sauce and cheese. For the Cajun side of Southeast Texas: they serve the “Booty Burger” which is topped with Boudin, melted cheddar cheese, creole mustard, lettuce and tomato. Or, try the Hee-Haw Burger. Two juicy all-beef patties topped with hand-battered fried green tomatoes, melted pimento cheese, thick-cut Applewood smoked bacon strips, and red pepper jelly.
A side order of fries is highly recommended. Pick between sweet potato or parmesan garlic, offering elevated flavors to your normal fries. Add a thick and creamy shake to wash it all down. They also make a mean malt, coke floats and fried funnel cakes topped with powdered sugar for a sweet treat afterwards.
