burgerjoint that's been here a long time
creamburger with the big city booming around this burger joint
creamburger has seen a lot of history on the corner of Elgin and Scott street oh my god that chain where was the only thing in the corner Beverly Greenwood and her sister Sandra now throw burgers at the stand which has been a family tradition since she was a little girl my mom dad opened in 1961 when I first opened the business I was going to go crazy for burgers and fries and shakes but that didn't happen because the business was as much to make money as to provide us, you see, Beverly and Sandra are just two of the seven siblings that Willie and Verna Greene would welcome. to the world and while they owned a hamburger joint they did it. help feed the family verna had a bigger plan my mom when it was her real home to us and all she thought she would get it was talk business so she would have paid for the fire station willie worked various jobs to keep up to her family while Verna kept up with Queen Burger helping her get to the top, she was here from 10:30 to 12:00 at night every day, I mean, because when she first opened, she worked Monday to sunday it opened every day and then it was only started closing on sundays the kids took over the burger business in 1974 and the tradition of closing on sundays didn't change but apparently the burgers have the burgers now they don't look alike in nothing to when my mom made it, my mom used to put a lot of love into it and we put a little bit but she just put a lot of love into it and hopefully today she can make me a hamburger and I can eat it right now I don't
listen to her I don't listen to her or because you know that everything changes you, but you think differently, everyone makes their own t It's good, but nothing like my mom and they've never tried my mom's burger, so they don't know what they're missing, they don't know what comparison, my system, brothers, everyone does it differently, no one will do it like my mom, but she taught us. you know, like anything else, considering mom hasn't made a meal since 1974 and the reputation for cream patties is still solid sandra must be doing something right, so what's the secret?
You'll notice I mean you'd be surprised give me the girlfriend Sandra makes us start with a burger that's as big as the H sound we have a cook a chili cheeseburger who's one of us it's a little messy but it's one of our specialties everyone come on anyway let's make it double kazoo yeah you're a big guy yeah so we'll make it double and everything there's a reason for that first is the bread starts with the buns. I like it to be a little crunchy. no no one no one we don't simple next is our two quarter pounder burgers topped with the basics simple like I said just ring out pepper that's it that's it that's the reason why the hamburger with cream doesn't need things up there grill our seasoning is on the grill it's already that equipping it's 54 years this is the original group that's the original grill nearby I know it's all everything is great just to get in there where she walks but other than that it's pretty so before you know it we're already working on the buns you see how fresh it is we're going to make it and we're going to pick it with mustard and mayonnaise but usually I come here and put a little everything. put some lettuce and onions and we'll give it some tomatoes and some pickles and then we should put the cheese on the bottom so it meets milky the finishing touch on this tasty burger chili just let it run all over them look at that look at that normally we just wrap it up and you're on your own from now on.
Thank you Beverly oh my god that's like pounds of food thank you ma'am I will. Let's take a look at what we have in our goodie bag. You here at Creek Burger have chili everywhere. I'll take a look at that. Everything you'd expect from a double chili cheeseburger. Careless. messy things. If this doesn't convince you to come to the third room, nothing. We'll have big burgers. You have to open your mouth. Why did you just want You're out of luck. I work for my burgers. Oh that's amazing. Wow, you know you can always come and have a good meal. okay holly my parents aren't here but i started here and now mike you know in pants always generation is in ashes it's fun to dine so you know let me let you in on a little secret this is only four bucks very reasonable.
The prices are very reasonable and they will cheat you on this third hike. of the people who live in this area don't have an income that is slightly less than average, so we try to keep enough for them to get a burger and a milkshake. We're not trying to make it so high a price that they can't afford. that's the idea well the double cheeseburger in cream burger has everything you crave it has chili cheese the burger that tastes of yesteryear cooked on a 1961 seasoned grill it doesn't get much better than this a burger with double chili cheese here. at Green Burger in Houston, well, we're the stop on your Texas
You don't come here. You are missing something. A good home. man everything is as promised come see for yourself don't take anyone's word cause not even mine
