Best burger in town hands down – Not only do they have the best burger in town (and their hot dogs are delicious as well), but recently I needed to pick up burgers on the way home. My young son was asleep in the carseat and I didn't want to wake him. I called from the parking lot and Jason was so nice to take my order over the phone (instead of having to come inside) and he had it ready for me to go when I walked in 15 minutes later. It was so appreciated.
Holy Huge Burgers Batman! – These things are big! Home of what is probably Houston's second best burger (falling only behind Bubba's Burger shack), Christian's Totem is one of my favourite places to go on a Thursday or Friday evening. Originally intended as a bar Christian's is good at what it does, bring people together over burgers and brews. With some pretty amazing beer specials (You can get Shiner pitcher for as low as 4 bucks on certain nights), it is hard not to hit this place up with your friends every night. And everyone knows that when you have a few beers in you, there is nothing you crave more than a big juicy burger; enter Christian's ace in the hole.
Christian's double burgers could probably feed a small third world country for a few weeks. My So and I usually order the double Mushroom Swiss and share, and sometimes we can't finish it. Yes, it is that big. And the only thing greater than it's size is it's flavour. God these are good. And when you consider that their biggest, most loaded up burger doesn't break the double digits you end up with Houston's favourite watering hole.
Christian's is the yardstick by which all other sports bars are measured, and sadly, they all fall short.
Really Good – I got a 1/3lb burger combo with cheese and onion rings. It comes assembled on a fresh bun with leaf lettuce, sliced onions, mayo, tomato and pickle slices, and a slice of american cheese. It's cooked medium, truly medium well, but it kept all the juices and is about as good a burger as you can get by keeping it basic. The onion rings were alright.
Good but not really special – After hearing about the place for years I finally made it there. Parking is probably very difficult if you don't go off hours, even then you will pay at a meter. This place is a sports bar, which is fine, but it's a pretty funky one. The burgers and fries are ok. Nothing to write home about. Staff wasn't busy but tables were dirty and most missing either ketchup, salt, pepper, paper towels...
Love the Burger's – Can't say I've ever had a bad burger @ this place, kid friendly during the day, fun for the adults @ night.
Wednesday Night but Every other nigh too! – I?ve been coming to this place for about 1yr and 1/2 and I love this place. Great place to have all your friends to meet, watch the game, or drink. The staff is freaking awesome. It?s like walking on the T.V show Cheers...where everyone knows your name. Sometime I don?t even have to say a work and the bartender give me my usual. The burgers are still the best in Houston. DJ plays great music but needs to play more rock (Rage, Incubus, Deftones...etc.)wink wink, but in all its good music.
fun place, great burgers – I love these burgers! Don't come here expecting a "nice" place; but hey, its burgers. Fun place to eat, drink and watch the game.
Love it!!! – Best college place ever. The food is great and the drinks are even better. The whole staff is so nice and does a great job managing the crazy crowd
Not Impressed – What is the big deal about the burgers here? They are average at best and the onion rings were terrible. Service was bad and seems very unorganized.
