Freshly grilled burgers, nicely charred hot dogs, hand-cut, skins-on fries and kick-ass shakes are all you need to know about this small Houston-born chain. Salads, grilled chicken and grilled vegetables provide options for those watching their waist lines. Try, if you dare, Bill's Burger, a juicy slab of grilled beef topped with sauteed onions, bacon, cheddar cheese, jalapenos and Beck's special sauce. You'll find great burgers at all of the Beck's locations, but our favorites are the Augusta and Dairy Ashford restaurants where sprawling decks are shaded by huge oaks. Every meal feels like a wonderous picnic.
Vibe: Really, really laidback ... unless you try to steal one of my fries. Get your own damn fries.
