I love the burgers because it's cook to order and it's always juicy. You can tell it's made fresh just from the taste. The food is pretty consistant, unlike other hamburger places.

Bad Food....Bad Value...Never Again! 3/27/2011

Bad Service. Small portions. High price. Unequal treatment. My family and I were seated for a few minutes as we watched the waitresses stand around and talk. It seemed as though they were trying to decide as to who would have to serve us. Steer clear of this restaurant. The food portions were small and they do not come with any sides (fries, etc.). What kind of restaurant does not offer sides with the meal? Sure, most items on the menu are roughly $10.00, but at the portion sizes that we were given, it should have been half the price. I felt like I was paying the waitress her wage as we left paying way more than we should have. I have heard of this restaurant and thought that it might be a good experience; boy, was I wrong. My family could not help but notice that as soon as other customers (Caucasians) entered the establishment, that the waitresses were waiting on them hand and foot, not to mention that they ordered more food and theirs came out first. Getting a glass of water took long enough! To really top things off, we had the ""pleasure"" of being watched by a Caucasian man as we ate. Those sunglasses aren't fooling anyone.... especially if you are staring directly at us! More on the last point, everyone eating there was white. I suppose they did not appreciate our presence. I will never eat there again. more

A real disappointment 10/29/2010

We just returned from the Memorial restaurant and it was a real disappointment. The food was definitely NOT ""fresh cooked"". The burger tasted like it had been cooked previously and re-heated in the microwave. The fries were over cooked. My hiusband had a chili burger and said the chili (or the burger) was not that great. I certainly wouldn't recommend it to anyone, and we will certainly not return. more

Houston's best chain hamburger. 3/31/2010

I don't like chains. They tend to become slaves of corporate greed and cut corners; the result is usually under-par food. Beck's Prime might just be the exception to the rule. Not content with having a solidly good burger, they step things up with some of the best milkshakes in Houston. And best of all? It's located smack dab in the middle of Memorial Park! Talk about an awesome location. The burgers have good, flavourful beef and crisp, fresh vegetables; they finish things off with some of the best, buttery buns in the business to make it the meanest burger in town. Of course, quality comes with a price, and expect to pay a good 12 dollars a head here, but when you take into consideration how damn good the burgers are, you pay it happily. more

A Houston burger institution... 10/1/2008

Beck's has a wide variety of burgers and mine have always been good. That said, they're pretty pricey for what you get. On the other hand, some of their locations are great including one with a huge oak tree beneath which diner's can eat in an almost park-like atmosphere. I prefer the local Barnaby's chain of burger places; table service for just about the same price. Pros: Good hamburgers Cons: Can be a bit slow and not a great value considering no table service. more

Great Burger!!! 6/28/2008

A Great Menu Keeps Getting Better! 5/29/2008

Everyone who has eaten at Becks knows that the food quality is some of the best in town. If you want frozen burger patties or reconstituted chicken or french fries with a hundred ingredients, you go somewhere else. If you want your food cooked to order (and that means if you want medium rare, you get it. Not like at other places where you can only get your burger medium because they've already cooked it) you come to Becks. I used to order the Hickory Burger all the time, but now that they've added the Ahi Tuna sandwich, I order that at least twice per week. Yesterday, I ordered the Mediterranean salad with Ahi Tuna on the side, and it was awesome. more

OVER RATED 1/24/2008

Beck's Prime is the most overrated restaurant chain in the Houston area. Poor value for the money, very average quality food. I have eaten at three of the locations, including the one in The Woodlands, Kirby, and Memorial Park. One can walk across the parking lot to Fuddruckers in Grogan's Mill where burgers can be customized with better quality meat and veggie toppings. I know this stuff! Take my advice -- only eat here unless other options are exhausted! I just hate getting ripped off at restaurants with mediocre chow. Pros: Locations, ambience Cons: Lousy food, high prices, poor overall value more

Best hamburger in Houston. 6/28/2007

We have been coming to Houston for over a year now and have searched very hard for a good place to eat.\r Today we found that place. Everything was homemade and very good. It was very clean and the help was very friendly. I highly recommend this Becks Prime. Pros: Very good home cooked food. Cons: Parking area limited. more

Awesome burgers but so much more - you definitely get what you pay for. Never a long wait. It's fast food!?!? 6/26/2007

Becks Prime not only has the best hamburgers in town but they also offer many other items that I love. The steak sandwiches, stuffed potatoes, FAJITAS, and the milkshakes are all delicious and they have the best queso in town - far better than the Mexican food restaurants - and I love Mexican food! Take home steak dinners from the drive-through on special occasions beat many of the best steakhouses I have been too - you probably think I am crazy but try it and you will understand! I love the outside seating and the employees are always very friendly and helpful. If you want cruddy cheap fastfood - go elsewhere, you will get what you pay for at Beck's Prime. (This is the first time I have ever posted anything on the internet - my husband had to help me - testament to Beck's Prime. Also, I am an expert on queso, trust me) Pros: Great value and great service. Any way I want it. Cannot believe it is fast food. Unique. Cons: Can you build one across the street from me? Please? more

Best Burger I've Ever Had 6/26/2007

The best thing about Becks Prime is that even though I eat there a lot - at least 2-3 times per week - I still haven't gotten tired of the menu. Sometimes I order a chicken sandwich, sometimes a steak, sometimes a burger or a salad. The food is always fresh, and the employees are friendly, and I can customize any dish I want. The burgers are 1/2 pound and juicy, and they're way tastier than other restaurants (Fuddruckers, Red Robin, Chili's, etc) plus they're less expensive because I don't have to tip a waiter. I used to visit Houston a few times per year, and now one of the best things about living here is that I get to eat at Becks any time I want. Pros: Fresh food, Mesquite grilled, very friendly employees more

Stick to the Burgers 5/31/2007

The Sugar Land location has without a doubt, the best cheeseburger in town. Get the JB Burger!! Whataburger doesn't even belong in the same category with Becks. They need to work on the grilled chicken and grilled vegetables though. The chicken was tough and the vegetables tasted like lighter fluid. Love the outside dining. Get the burger, you'll be happy you did, trust me! Pros: Outside Dining more

Prices up, quality down 4/15/2007

We are long time customers. Since we walk in the park 5 days a week we were lunching there probably at least 2 to 3 times a week. They recently increased their prices---which we didn't mind. But the quality of the food skyrocketed down! The caesar salads are now covered in watered down dressing, plus the sizes have halved while the price went up $1.50. We ordered a chicken dish which now costs $15 (which we can get in a nice restaurant for the same price or less with a lot more & better food) and there was hardly any food on the plate: 2 small chicken breasts and about 5 mushrooms with a bit of melted cheese. Not good! When my husband asked about the order he was told ""I know you'all are long time customers"" & ""sorry"". Nice place to eat outside but we're giving it up for awhile to see if they bring the quality of the food back up. Pros: nice outside eating, fast Cons: quality of food went down as well as quantity more

15 years experience 5/10/2005

I have been going to Becks for 15 years. I think it is a great value. The quality has always been first rate and very consistant. Don't think they are after the ""who can give the largest portions"" market. They seem to appeal to the customer who wants a quality product. Some people can't tell the difference...I can. Pros: quality, freshness Cons: parking, location close more

too expensive for so little 6/30/2003

the burgers are way overpriced for what they are, they are only 5 oz burgers with all the fixings piled up, the fries are so horrible, soggy, small, and regular size fries is less than what you get at a fast food for $2.50. Too much money for so little and not so good food. Not all that! good steaks, but again overpriced, steak by itself is over 16.00, if you want baked potatoe you're gonna pay over $25.00 not worth it, might as well go to Ruth Chris. Pros: none, expensive, not interesting Cons: no atmosphere, lousy service, mediocre food more
