This Week's Houston Deal Sheet
Warning: Eat lunch before you see the photo below. The transformation of Rice Village continues with the announcement that Hopdoddy Burger Bar will join the lineup, creating ground-zero of the Houston burger wars between Hopdoddy and Shake Shack. They can't open fast enough.
Located at 5510 Morningside Drive in space formerly occupied by Baker Street Pub near 55 Restaurant and Bar, Houston’s newest Hopdoddy is expected to open in February. So the lines will start forming around Jan. 1, we presume.
