Flip N' Patties' opens latest location in Houston's Understory

HOUSTON – Houston's beloved Flip N' Patties has opened another location at The Understory.

The Filipino street food-inspired burger joint opened its brick-and-mortar location last year, after the owners' food truck was robbed at gunpoint in December 2017. 

Flip N' Patties will serve its food from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. weekdays, according to an Instagram post by The Understory. Michael Jante, co-owner, said once the operation at Flip N' Patties becomes a "well-oiled machine," the restaurant will expand its hours.

For now, though, Jante said the Understory location has been a success in its first week -- averaging about two order tickets a minute. 

The location is perfect for Flip N' Patties, Jante said. "It's good to be back in the loop." 

The Understory is a centralized station where Houstonians visit for culture, commerce and cuisine, according to its website. The space sits at the base of Bank of America Tower.
