Underbelly Burger, from Underbelly Hospitality, will be opening in the Houston Farmers Market this summer. Underbelly Burger will feature locally sourced beef from both RC Ranch Texas Craft Meats—whose butcher shop will be located next door—and longtime Underbelly Hospitality beef supplier 44 Farms.
The standard burger will be a slightly updated version of Hay Merchant’s Cease and Desist burger—double meat, double cheese with lettuce, pickles, and tomato on a potato bun. The small menu will also feature Chris Shepherd’s bacon sausage—both on burgers and in hot dog form—chicken sandwiches and special burgers driven by the seasons. The sidewinder fries are soft in the center and crispy around the edges.
Don’t miss pastry director Victoria Dearmond’s housemade milkshakes, plus a small selection of wine and beer. The 1,200-square-foot, 12-seat restaurant will also have a pick-up window on the side to encourage guests to enjoy the outdoor tables throughout the farmers market.
