#DuckFallas Says The Angry Burger Man in Houston. And if You Don't Like it, BRING IT!

Hubcap Grill in Houston.
Eater Dallas posted a fascinating story of what happens when a highly irate burger guy uses Twitter to release his anger. He really should try a different method, like what we used to tell my coach in high school, "In with the good air [inhale], out the bad air [exhale]."

So, a writer for a national food blog, Ewan Macdonald, who resides in Big D, apparently went to a burger place in Houston called Hubcap Grill and later wrote in his Serious Eats blog that he just wasn't too crazy about the fare. He liked the house-made buns, but overall left "distinctly underwhelmed."

What's funny is that in the comment section under the blog, about three entries down, there's this from NickS:

"... Bonus points that the best BBQ in Houston, Gatlins, is a few doors down! 

That said....Ricky Craig is quite the outspoken individual...so que Ricky comming 'Unglued" in... 3... 2...1..."


Good call NickS! Who you got in the fifth race at Aquedcut this weekend?

Shortly thereafter, Hubcap owner Ricky Craig did, in fact, come completely unglued. He fired off a litany of ALL CAPS, Duck Fallas, "I'll be here if you're lookin for me" tweets. Eater has most of the footage here (they skipped some for "brevity").

From the highlight reel is "Coming soon #DuckFallas party with CRAWFISH BOIL, beer, n live band. please RT"

Skipping to the end of the tirade ... "If anyone wanna talk smack to me I'll be at 19th all day tomorrow. 7am - 10pm BRING IT ASSHOLES."

In with good air ...

If we get the low-down on the party specifics, we'll pass them along. It is mudbug season, after all.

The Men’s Fitness list is complete junk. Men’s Fitness did not measure anyone, they looked at weather, number of restaurants in a city, and commute times to come up with their bogus list. Now HERE is a list that also just came out and actually measured people’s BMIs: http://www.livescience.com/188...

I think Ricky is just trying to make us "fake" Dallas people (part of his rant) feel small and diminished since Ricky and his fellow Houstonians were recently selected as the fattest city in America for the umpteenth time. The selectors, however, failed to include "fathead" as a factor in the rankings, which is only fair because then it would truly be no contest.

This clown would fit in well in the Dallas burger scene. I'll take Jack Perkins in the 3rd Rd.

That being said, his burgers look shitty.

Jack is a better wordsmith. No one over the age of 12 should be called "Ricky"

I smell a Jack Perkins v. Ricky Craig burger showdown,  I'll take Jack over this joker.

The Men’s Fitness list you refer to is complete junk. Men’s Fitness did not measure anyone, they looked at weather, number of restaurants in a city, and commute times to come up with their bogus list. Now HERE is a list that also just came out and actually measured people’s BMIs, you can see there is no Houston on this list: http://www.livescience.com/188...

He's not worthy to toast Jack's buns.

What about Ricky Ricardo?  He certainly could not be a Richard, or a Rick.  Ricky is just right for him.
