Picture Show: Burgers Across Texas

Eating Our Words says Houston's Hubcap's bacon burger is one of the best.
Last week, we joined forces with the Fellowship of the Village Voice Media Ring to bring a epic slideshow of burgers across the country. There were some surprises: the peanut-butter slathered monstrosity from City Pages, and (my god!) the grilled cheese flanked burger in Phoenix.

Working with the Houston Press, we have a new entry in the realm of burger appreciation: burgers across the great state o' Texas. In this new drool-inducing slide show, you'll find burgers from Mckinney, Fort-Worth, Dallas, North Plano, and--of course--Houston. After the jump we're tossing in a few teaser photos courtesy of Eating Our Words and Fort Worth's Love Shack, and the always excellent Katharine Shilcutt. For the full round of shots, check out the slideshow: Burgers Across Texas.

South Dallas-based Smoke's Burger comes with a fried egg fritter on top. Take that, Bourdain.
