To celebrate some of the best burgers in Houston, the Loaf Love Tour has partnered with five local restaurants for Tillamook Burger Week. During Burger Week, which runs from April 28 – May 5, each spot will offer a unique burger special featuring Tillamook Cheese.
Award winning Chef Bryan Caswell and Bill Floyd, owners of Little Bigs, are taking their famous food and adding some Tillamook. Little Bigs made Bon Appetit’s List of Top 10 Best New Burger Spots in the US. Who could pass this up? The Hanging Slider – a Yeast bun, Tillamook Medium Cheddar and Caramelized Onion perfection. ($2.50)
You know BRC for fine all American food from Chef Lance Fegen and of course that Big Red Rooster, but during Burger Week you will know it for their Tillamook Sharp Cheddar Chili Dog Burger – with Sweet Jalapenos, Pickled Onions and Iceberg lettuce this is one burger you won’t soon forget. ($13) Before the burger don’t miss the Tillamook Pepper Jack Pimento Cheese appetizer served with Warm Tortilla Strips. ($9)
The Burger Guys
These guys aren’t called The Burger Guys for nothing. They are serious about burgers and seriously know how to make them delicious. They got creative so come hungry for their Tillamook Betty – 1/2 lb. Akaushi beef with Cinnamon Nutmeg Aioli, Bread and Butter Pickled Braeburn Apples, Arugula, and Tillamook Sharp Cheddar served on a Challah bun. ($10)
Liberty Kitchen & Oyster Bar
Chef Lance Fegen’s new venture is making a splash with top-notch comfort food. You won’t be able to resist their Burger Week Special – The Rodeo Clown Reuben – a drool-worthy combination of Brisket, Chicken Fried Steak, Hot Dog, Tillamook Sharp Cheddar, Tillamook Pepper Jack, Sweet Jalapenos, Malt Slaw, Tomato, Pickles, 1000 Island and Chile con Queso on Pumpernickel.
