2. Flip 'n Patties

As the only food truck to make this list, Flip 'n Patties should be mighty proud. The Filipino street food and fusion burger truck grinds the meat for its burgers right there on the truck and sandwiches the patties between two steamed buns. They may not look like your average burgers, and they arent--they're better. Commenter dwallach writes, "The other day, I ran into the Flip 'n Patties food truck and had their 'Puet Burger,' which includes much pork goodness in the patty, making it a variant on a squealer. Very tasty, and props for thick-cut fries with the skin still on. No exaggeration: this place gives Stanton City Bites a run for its money." Speaking of Stanton's City Bites...
1. Stanton's City Bites

The crowd has spoken. With nearly 20 percent of the vote, Stanton's City Bites is the clear winner of most underrated burger in Houston. The small shop was established in 1961 as a grocery store, but it soon became clear that its true calling was prepared food, not groceries. The owner, Art Fong, passed away last year, but his wife, Theresa, is still in the back frying up heavenly burgers daily. Anon4790 wrote, "Stanton's City Bites, bacon cheeseburger. Ground in-house, 1/2 pound, Slow Dough buns. It shouldn't be underrated since Houstonia had it as the cover-burger on its hamburger issue last summer...But no one here has nominated it yet, and it wasn't on the Houston Press's list (tsk, tsk)." We hear you, Anon, and we hope this rectifies the situation. Now lets all put aside our differences and hit up Stanton's for a Miss Piggie burger!
