This “legendary” daytime-only “dive” in Montrose is the “perfect spot when nothing but a burger will do” , but it’s also a fan favorite for “weekday lunch specials” (think enchiladas and chicken-fried steak) and hearty breakfasts; adding to the “step-back-in-time” experience are the “funky old building” with “floors all askew” , “minimal parking” and “cash-only” policy.

This place is a gem. Friendly service, and good food. Opening hours are non-standard and they only take cash. It's that take out dive you drive past in a small town on a road trip with your parents that ends up having great food at a reasonable price and you wish you could stay longer... but transplanted into a neighbourhood in the shadow of downtown. Firehouse burger is HOT. Not "anglo-hot", HOT! Fries are some of the best I've had. Got a grilled cheese with bacon for breakfast while taking my dog for a walk; so damn good! The dog nearly snatched it from my hand. Ask for a rare burger if you will be super bummed with a patty that isn't pink inside.

ever had. We had the box burger and fries. A nice twist with fried shallots and baby spinach and a fresh ripe tomato. Fries were great, "cooked and seasoned perfectly. I highly recommend this restaurant! The wait maybe long, but it is well worth it. Next time I am in Houston will be defiantly be back.

INCREDIBLE! AH-MAY-ZING! DELICIOUS! Doing a Triple D tour and checking this off this list with a define return and bringing more people with me! We tried the Cuban, strawberry and pineapple shakes, and curly fries. We had the mushrooms and avocado on the side. Everything is fresh and homemade from scratch. Between my husband and I we were stuffed! This place is so good! You have to try it! (Side note: yes it's a mom and pop place, but I could care less, I've been to some elite places and they fail in food and service. Lankford's exceeded our expectations in food and service! They were very attentive and despite the label for a dive, they are a clean facility, with air conditioning! That's crucial in this city!)
