LEFT on East 6'th street and Tamale House East is on the right.

website quote:
"We spent the last 2 months in serious investigative mode. Sweat neck research led us to 4 men, each claiming that they alone invented the American hamburger (or cheeseburger.)

Now it's time to show and prove. We've secured a truck load of hormone and antibiotic free, verified natural beef from Branch Ranch (est.1902) in Plains, Texas and we're ready to hit the kitchen of Tamale House East. Eventbrite http://burgerproject.eventbrite.com/

The menu:...."


Both the burger and french fry description sounds awe-inspiring


Anyone heading? I'm going to be in exact opposite part of town tonight gosh darn it. Wonder how late they are going to stay open?

    1 lb of cheese
    1 lb of bacon

    Served on a toasted kaiser roll. Finish this beast in 1 hour and it's yours' gratis. Fail and pony up $50.
    register in advance only


    1. It's about that time again. RL is doing another pop up this weekend, (Nov. 16) this time in tribute to the cooking of Texas women. I have to admit, I have a soft spot for King Ranch Casserole.
