Takeout Shoutout: The Burger Joint in the spotlight
HOUSTON – The Burger Joint is a simple, nothing flashy, down-home, burger place that offers delicious, juicy hamburgers without taking itself too seriously. They also serve more than 20 draft beers and a number of fantastic milk shakes, including two specialty shakes that are made with beer. What we love about The Burger Joint is again the simplicity. In addition to the burgers, they serve a number of specialty French fry recipes that will delight your palate. The Burger Joint is located right in the heart of Montrose and offers curbside pickup to make your take-out as simple as possible.
