You can get a hamburger just about anywhere these days but to truly experience a great hamburger, well, that’s a rarity. As I walked into this bright and cheery diner I was greeted immediately with a “Welcome to Willy Burger!,” and the tone was set. I “followed the footsteps” on the floor that brought me to a menu to peruse and then to a wonderfully charming lady at the counter where I would order. I expressed that it was my first time to Willy Burger and she happily suggested a couple of their best selling items.
I settled on the “Yee Haw Burger” and sweet potato fries. Everything is ordered separately here, which I like, so you can choose to indulge as much or as little as you would like. I was able to find a seat in the middle of the dining area at a nice, clean booth and I hadn’t waited long when my order number was called. After, getting back to my seat with the utterly scrumptious looking burger I dove right in. I was intrigued when looking over the ingredients that this burger featured a fried green tomato, one of my favorites, and I was so eager to see how it was. I have never had a fried green tomato on a burger but it was divine! The flavor profile of this burger was savory and sweet. It had onions, a savory sauce, perfectly grilled patty, fried green tomato, and a ridiculously amazing pepper jelly to top it all off. I couldn’t get enough of this delicious creation. Even as I am writing this an reminiscing I want another one! I was so enthralled by this one of a kind burger that I almost forgot about my side. The sweet potato fries were crispy on the outside and soft on the inside with a hint of salty goodness. I cleaned my plate which is something I rarely do because I like leftovers (weird, I know).
It was my first ever experience at this Katy, TX staple and it will not be my last. I have already told every friend that I came in contact with about how great it was and I want to shout it from the rooftops. If you are in the mood for a casual dining experience that will leave you somewhere between too full and wanting even more then definitely make your way to Willy Burger. They have two locations – one in Old Katy and one in Beaumont. If you want to learn more about them check them out on Facebook and on their website! Thanks, Willy Burger for the amazing lunch!
