A longtime local fave has been voted best burger in the state of Texas. Reader's Digest put in the work, did the necessary eating, and compiled a list of the best burgers in every state.
The Texas winner was Tookie's Hamburgers & More in Kemah. You're probably familiar with Tookie's, but if not, it's time for you to head down to Kemah. The super-casual burger spot was founded in 1975. Their website explains that the goal was to capture the feel of old school neighborhood drugstores that featured soda fountains, burgers, and sometimes homemade pie.
The menu has expanded over the years and includes all kinds of specialty burgers, hot wings, fried shrimp, their famous Mamma Ethel's Onion Rings, incredible milkshakes, and a full bar.
