Burger Mania Grips the Houston Farmers Market — Chris Shepherd’s New Underbelly Burger Is Already Drawing a Crowd

Had it not been a damp and windy 50 degrees on Friday, the line outside of Chris Shepherd’s spanking new Underbelly Burger in the Houston Farmers Market on Airline Drive probably would have snaked outside the door. As it was, the cozy space, which is already noted for introducing a slightly updated version of Hay Merchant’s Cease and Desist burger, was packed.

This is what happens on day two of a new foodie hotspot, sure to be adored, when renowned chef Chris Shepherd brings his reputation for great food, good service and philanthropy to the table. A beaming if uber busy Shepherd was behind the counter on this day when eager fans chowed down on yummy burgers (double meat, double cheese with lettuce, pickles and tomato on a potato bun), outrageously delish fries and more.

Happily, the line moved quickly and those seeking a table in the 1,200 square foot burger joint could likely find one of the 14 seats. Even so, we looked longingly at the neighboring outdoor tables and the tables on the green space merely yards away. But it was just too cold for these thin-blooded Texans to sit outside.
