Talk about excellent service with a smile! The gentleman at the drive-thru was oozing with happiness. Please support this small business during this time. They also have delivery.
This is a new spot in the neighborhood & very welcomed. Their fries are nice & seasoned & piping hot, you can see the seasoning with your eyes, yum!!
The strawberry shake was very fresh & blended to perfection, nice & smooth, great treat. The small size is more like a medium so it was filling. Great prices, great service, good food, win, win, win!
The burgers are amazing! You will be hard pressed to find a burger this good in its price range. The burgers are fresh, big, juicy, and perfectly seasoned. I definitely will be back. Even better is the ability to order online and pickup the order.
I am So Happy! Hippo Burgers has come to my 'hood. Yes, it's a tough time to open a new restaurant with Covid 19 around mandating only take out orders but I have no doubt that this place will survive and prosper. Why? Because the food is oh so good!
I first ate at the original location in Humble about 4 years ago and really enjoyed it. It was located in a small no frills shopping center and the interior was sparse but the burgers and fries were top notch. They eventually grew to 2 Humble locations and 1 in Crosby before coming here. By the way "here" is adjacent to the Texaco gas station located on the corner of the Beltway and N. Gessner. There are a few parking spots in front with much more parking available on the side of the restaurant. Inside there is ample space with several booths for seating. This is a counter service restaurant with a self serve drink machine. Hippo offers several specialty hamburgers along with chicken sandwiches and hot dogs with several variations of french fries, onion rings and tater tots. They also have 4 flavors of chicken wings. Prices are very reasonable with most burgers and sandwiches in the $6-8 range.
For my two recent trips here, I have ordered their Hippo Burger ($6.50) with regular fries ($1.75) skipping a drink to take the food home to eat. The Hippo Burger is their standard hamburger dressed with lettuce, tomato, pickle and onion. It's a 1/2 lb. Angus beef patty on a big bun that is simply delicious. I love the flavor and consider this one of my favorite hamburgers in Houston. Also, the french fries are among the best with a nice salt and pepper taste that makes me happy. The food here is made to order so everything is given to you hot and fresh. Wait time for the food both times was less than 10 minutes. They have a drive thru window too.
Burger had great flavor and was fresh. Cajun fries had good flavor and appeared to be fresh cut. The lemon pepper wings were hot and crispy with the flavoring inside the wing. Great tasting food with friendly service. Will be returning again.
Their burgers are really good. This is the Hippo special also their buffalo fries are extremely tasty. One of the best burger shops around
