San Antonio is Home to the Best Burger in Texas, New Food List Reports


  • Facebook / Papa's Burgers
The best burger in Texas is closer than you think.

According to food-focused website Eat This, Not That, the best-rated burger in Texas is 'El Caliente,' which can be found at Papa's Burgers in San Antonio. The burger includes a fresh beef patty grilled to your liking, grilled onions and jalapeƱos, lettuce, tomatoes and sliced pickles, stacked between the restaurant's signature toasted bun.

The website recently teamed up with Yelp, using star ratings and individual reviews, to create a list of the Absolute Best Burger in Every State.

This isn't the first time the San Antonio burger spot has been recognized for food excellence. Time Magazine and Yelp previously teamed up to release a list of the "10 Best Burger Joints in America" in 2018, which put Papa's Burgers at No. 4.
