Houston's Finest Soul Food - Bacon Burger and Wings

Truck: Houston's Finest Soul Food

Bacon Burger - $9.85

This is a straight up classic burger, but done by hand. No fancy thick cut peppered bacon smoked with ancient hardwood recovered from a prehistoric river, just regular bacon and a lot of it. I've had some very fancy bacon burgers, this had more bacon taste than most. No the patty isn't made from heirloom cattle who were read to every night. It's just a hand formed patty cooked so there is some crust on it from the griddle. Classic toppings, lettuce, tomato, pickles, onions. Fancy burgers are fun and interesting, but this just reminds me how good the classics can be. Synopsis: Rocking a burger old school and hitting it out of the park.

Wings with Sweet Chili - 5/$6.85

This are another classic. Five wings, deep fried I think without breading then tossed in a sweet chili sauce. Nice heat without making me gulp down my beer. Spot on with the balance of heat and sweet in my opinion. The price at first seems kind of high, but you get a large serving of real potato french fries with them. Its actually plenty for a light meal. Synopsis: Kinda wish I had some right now.
