Went to Prince's based on 8+ rating on citysearch. Food was not bad, but not good either. A 5, or average, at best. Had burgers, onion rings and fries - nothing special about a...

Peanut Butter shake ... I'll take you as my idol 5/31/2010

I'm a healthy gal. While not organic, I do count my calories. [and $] Houston Press had a coupon for a FREE shake with purchase of one of their burger deals. Hook, line and sinker for my 'day off.' Lunch time is a parking manuever but definitely doable. The options at Prince's are endless - burger, chicken, veggie patty ... not to mention fries or onion rings on the meals. [always onion rings.] They have every burger your could every want: BBQ, avacado, plain burger - cheese?, onion + mushroom ... etc. Wheat bun? White? You're all set. Wanna have the best experience of your life? Peanut Butter shake. Oh. Em. Gee. The pb is caked on the shake's metal bowl. Get a To Go cup. It lasts an entire day. Side note: The onion rings are the flaky kind. But kids: it's a burger joint. It's not a gourmet one at that. But it's a darn good burger. Pros: value, options, shakes/malts Cons: Well, it is a burger joint ... more

Houston's Worst Burger Joint 4/12/2010

Prince's hamburgers claims that they use all natural ingredients....... I don't think so. Pros: Everything is good except the burgers Cons: prefab meat more

Great Burgers - Great place 6/25/2009

I enjoy going to this Houston landmark almost weekly. Great burgers and onion rings. i was realy surprised at how good the fried shrimp are. The staff is really friendly to all the members of our church group. Pros: value in a neat place Cons: parking more

Old School meal that fills you up 4/5/2009

I stopped in here when visiting Houston recently. I was actually looking for the Burger Shack, but I found this place on the way. They have excellent malts and really good food overall. I can't say that the burger was the best ever, but it was thick and juicy, just the way it should be. Pros: Malts more

Decent food for the price 4/16/2008

I went here for a quick weekday lunch. I ordered the Smitty with the fries and onion rings. The burger was pretty dry and the fries and rings were a bit soggy. But I will say that the food came out very quickly and is pretty decent for the price. I'd come here again if I was in the mood for some good ol' greasy food. Pros: fast service Cons: not the best burger I've had more

Original Fish Sandwich 2/22/2008

I used to eat at Prince's when I was a child. I always ate an Open Trout Sandwich. This was Texas toast, trout, tarter sauce and fries. So when it said original fish sandwich I had to try it. It was very good, but it was on a bun, not an open face sandwich and no Texas toast. A small amount of tarter sauce on sandwich. I do not think the fish was trout. Again the food was very good, the fish was excellent, the price was right, but the original sandwich it was not. more

All talk No Show.. 1/11/2008

I was reading up about this place, and found that it was also ranked number 3 for hotdogs.It also had raved reviews with how delicious the burgers were. Me and my girlfriend ordered two original burgers with there famous sauce. They messed up the order terribly, neither had the sauce, and I had ordered a double, and they screwed that up too. Not a big deal until i bit into my burger and realized it tasted like completely cheap meat. The fries that came with it were a limited amount, and soft. I also ordered a hot dog, and I think Ive eaten better hot dogs at movie theatres. Im surprised it has so many praised reviews. more

Really Good 12/11/2007

A friend dragged my here, against my better judgement. Well, I'm glad she did. Our kids had lots of fun, the food was great and the service was good too. I have no complaints! Pros: Yummy & Fun Cons: No waiters more

Best Value Hands Down 10/24/2007

I have eaten at several burger joints here around Houston and honestly have not met a match to Prince's. Pros: Best Value in town Cons: not enough locations more

The ""Origional ""with cheese -Delicious!!! 10/15/2007

Yum!! Yum!! The '""Origional"" with cheese is the way to different than a regular burger....My parents had the same exact burger 50 years ago at the old location on Main street. The onion rings are the best! Service on Southwest Freeway location is VERY fast and is very kid friendly. Love it! Refreshing to have an origional icon still here in Houston! more

tough and tasteless 5/21/2007

prince's claims they use fresh ground Certified Angus Beef. that's a lie, straight up. i ate at their katy freeway location yesterday in the mid afternoon. i had the third pound Old Timer w/cheese. the meat patty was small for a ""third pound"", was your typical processed, frozen meat patty (how they find the nerve to pass this off as fresh ground is beyond me), and was tough. it was flavorless and generally unappetizing. and if this wasn't bad enough; they have what appears to be repeatedly washed (or maybe not washed at all) heinz ketchup bottles at the booths that are filled with something that is CERTAINLY NOT heinz ketchup. sixteen plus dollars for two burger, fry, and drink meals...go to burger king. more

can't get enough 1/20/2007

I can eat here everyday and not get tired of the fabulous hamburgers. They are consistantly fresh, well seasoned, well cooked and perfect. The mixture of all the ingredients is in perfect proportion to make an awesome burger. the fries are crispy and tasty and the onion rings are to rave about. Great job Stiles for managing the place so well. Pros: the best burger in town Cons: sometimes too many kids more

great late nite quick bite to eat 11/23/2006

great place to go if you're really hungry and want a late nite quick bite to eat. the ambience has a nostalgic 50s fast-food joint decor - somewhat laid-back and ""come as you are"" feel. the food is decent, nothing really spectacular, but like i said, it'll satisfy your palette when you're really hungry.* Pros: decent food when you're really hungry Cons: ambience more

Awsome Burgers 11/16/2006

Best homestyle burgers in houston. It's a great place to take kids. Very casual dining but be expected to wait a little if going on the weekend it gets a little packed but well worth the wait. Pros: Great homestyle burgers Cons: very busy more

Good Hamburgers 11/1/2006

We had driven by Prince's several times but had never stopped. I am very glad we finally stopped and got hamburgers. Prince's hamburgers are really good. Try 'em, you'll like 'em. more

good food - horrible service 10/26/2006

the food was super good here, but now worth the wait. they didnt seem to know what was going on in the kitchen. people after us had their food before us, they messed up the side of fries and gave us onion rings. the floor was dirty and no attempt was made to clean up. Pros: good burger Cons: not clean more

Yummy! 10/25/2006

The burgers are juicy and flavorful. The beef patty is full of flavor from the grill. The restaurant has a relaxing and fun atmosphere. Also the milk shakes are very good. The banana shake tastes fresh with bits of banana blended in. The rootbeer is cold and so good! more

Awesome root beer!! HUGE onion rings! 7/12/2006

My fiance and I love this place. Go for the root beer and onion rings. Great burgers too! You get a good amount of food for the price!! Highly recommended!! more
