I've been obsessed with this particular burger - the Cheeto Burger at Hubcap Grill - for about a year now. It's just so good. But the Hubcap Grill's two locations have both been really hard for us to get to during the hours they are open (traffic.) So, I'd only been twice. But I dreamed about that burger all the time. So when I started following @Hubcap_Grill on Twitter I found out that they were opening a third location only 20 minutes from my house. They were Kemah Boardwalk bound! So I waited, and waited, and waited. Finally, yesterday, the owner tweeted that if anyone wanted to come for a "Private VIP Tasting - on the house" today, naturally, I asked if super fans count as VIP? And he said YES.
Cue angels singing. Oh you guys. It was so good. As good as it has always been. It's not just that they put Cheetos on a burger, but every part of the burger is good. The bun? Excellent. The patty? Flavorful, juicy, seasoned to perfection. Then there's the cheese sauce and the actual Cheetos. I mean. Look, I know I like food way too much, but this burger deserves the hype I am giving it.
Here, want to try my Cheeto burger?
