A unique set of Texas burger treasures has crossed our palates this season. Each and everyone has brought Lone-Star State joy to our taste buds, but only one can be crowned burger of the season. With delicious deliberation, we’ve made our top five burgers from the Fall 2017 season list. (Click the images or links below to watch videos about each of our top five burgers.)
The Texas Bucket List Burger of the Season Fall 2017 – Burger #5 Wagon Wheel Drive-In in Big Spring
When you think of Texas burgers, I doubt you think of pizza, too. The legendary Texas treat, known as the pizza burger, has been on the Wagon-Wheel Drive-In menu since the 1940s. With two beef patties, a bruschetta bun, marinara sauce, parmesan and mozzarella cheese, and the traditional burger toppings, lettuce, tomato, and onion this is definitely a delicious Lone-Star State find.

The Texas Bucket List Burger of the Season Fall 2017 – Burger #4 J&P Bar and Grill in Comstock
This burger packs hellacious flavor in each and every bite. A beef patty made with freshly ground meat, toasted onion poppy seed bun, grilled jalapenos, pepper jack cheese, homemade jalapeno mayo sauce, and all the traditional burger toppings make this burger wrong in all the right ways. The spice and flavor of this West Texas treat make it no surprise that the devil’s burger finds a spot on our top burgers of the season list.

The Texas Bucket List Burger of the Season Fall 2017 – Burger #3 LSA Burger Company in Denton
Named after Texas music artist, Stevie Ray Vaughan, this burger packs some rhythm and blues. This burger is rocking with a beef patty, buttered brioche bun, blue cheese, bacon, blue cheese dressing, and Frank’s Hot Sauce. One bite of this Texas burger gem, and we were love struck baby.

The Texas Bucket List Burger of the Season Fall 2017 – Burger #2 Bacon Cheese Burger at The Burger Bar in Cleburne
It’s hard to beat a good old fashioned bacon cheese burger made on a 100 year old grill at a restaurant with courters so close, you quickly become friends with the chef and three other people that can be in the space at one time. Salt and pepper are all the seasoning this beef patty needs, the rest of the meat’s flavor comes from the 100 year old grill. Fresh jalapenos, cheese, bacon, and a toasted bun smothered with mustard, mayo, pickles, tomatoes, onions, and lettuce make the bacon cheeseburger well worth squizing into the tiny building known as The Burger Bar.

The Texas Bucket List Burger of the Season Fall 2017 – WINNER Top of the Hill in Benchley
It’s a bird! It’s a plain! No, it’s Superman, the superman burger from Top of the Hill that is. This burger truly is super, making it the number one burger on our list this season. Two hand pressed patties made with local beef, toasted buns, grilled house made jalapenos, bacon, cheese, and all the usual burger fixings make this burger my personal kryptonite.
