Lankford's Grocery & Market
Go-to spot for old-fashioned burgers

The Zagat Review
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.

We make sure to visit this place every year on our yearly visit to Houston. It's cash only and no ATM nearby so be prepared with cash before you go. The food is excellent though the burger I had this time was a bit salty (I think the bacon I added was the culprit there) and had a bit too much cheese on it, but it was a good experience anyway, as usual. The staff is so friendly and helpful. We love coming here! Even my kids who don't typically eat much when we're out and about ate a large lunch.

Very cool atmosphere and a straight-to-the-point menu (something I appreciate in a restaurant). The food isn't to die for but it is definitely better than any similar chain restaurant and you can't beat the prices. This place is CASH ONLY which I think is super neat. The second time I had ever been I forgot about this policy and told the cashier (who I believe is the owner) that I had to run to an ATM and I would be right back and the level of trust that was shown is the main reason I will be eating at Lankfords for a long time to come.

Small buy wonderful food cozy loving friendly environment. Pirces are good but it's only cash. Burgers are big. Dessert is to die for. Every thing made fresh. No parking so if u have a big truck it sucks but if u have a small auto I'll find easier parking on the street.
