As most of y'all know, I am all about good burgers--well, all about good food and drink in general--but I especially love a good burger. Something about a well cooked beef, turkey, lamb, buffalo or pork patty, with cheese, veggies, seasonings, and other such toppings on a doughy bun that makes me think comfort and satisfaction. Pair it up with a a cold Craft beer on draught, and I want to start singing a Jimmy Buffet song--but I won't since he sues those who allegedly violate his trademarks. Anyhoo, Sugar Land Town Square is boasting another great Houston area burger joint right across the street from my favourite watering hole The Flying Saucer Draught Emporium and right next door to a fave Asian Fusion place called BLU. Guru Burgers and Crepes is its name, and this high end, semi-hip burger joint and crepery impressed me with good quality meat and cheese, high end toppings, and satisfying selections

First of all Guru's burgers are made from Akaushi (a/k/a American Kobe) Beef--like they use at The Burger Guys. This buttery, sweet ,tender beef is a favourite of mine, and theirs is well seasoned, quite juicy and right up there. Akaushi is actually a healthier quality of beef as well as a better tasting quality of beef too, so I won't argue with that choice. They also have lamb, chicken, buffalo, salmon and portobello options as well. Per their website:
We like to think of burgers and crepes as very healthy foods. The secret is in choosing the right ingredients. Lean organic grass-fed beef, cage-free chicken, roaming buffalo, wild elk or salmon patties are awesome and lean sources of protein.
Stop. You had me at beef.

One additional comment: Sorry Five Guys, but you're now at Number 17--Guru Burger is now Number 10 on the list and some of the others will have to shift down. No worries though--everyone is still all good with me and I'll still be coming around to all of those on the list.

We were too full to try any of their crepes, but I noticed they serve banana-nutella crepes like I saw at Honey Honey crepery in San Francisco last year. I sense another visit in the near future. So says HankOnFood, the Foodie Guru/Professor!
