Ed’s Place – Hamburgers – Taylor, TX

You already know I love BBQ and of course with this blog I plan to provide as much insight into the world of Texas BBQ from my new perspective (as well continued news and reviews for BBQ across the country), but I’m also a food lover at heart and one of my guilty pleasures is a good hamburger.

Little did I know that nestled in a beer bar just behind Louie Mueller Barbecue was a burger joint putting out top notch burgers that rivaled the ones I loved in California.

A basic hamburger is only $ 4.25 and cheeseburger is $ 4.50, but if you are more ambitious (which I was as you can see below), you have to fork out a whopping $ 5.50! Seriously? Is there a better deal for a mouth-watering, life-changing, fill yourself up for hours and hours cheeseburger? I highly doubt it.

I know they use a flat top, which I feel is key to the great flavor, and from what I’ve heard (you can’t see the production as it’s back in a room behind the bar) they butter the buns and toast them perfectly on the flat top as well. There is no fryer so you can’t get fries or onion rings (only chips), but really all you need is a burger (or two) and a beer (just two bucks).

Love all of their signage too (as you can tell):

I honestly cannot stop thinking about getting another one. It’s like an In-N-Out on flavor steroids. So if you’re headed to Taylor to stop at any of their BBQ joints, I’d recommend heading in to Ed’s Place to grab a beer and a burger to go.

  1. It’s hard to beat a great burger dive. The best burger I have ever had in my entire life comes from an old pool hall in a tiny town in North Carolina.

  2. Kevin…want to thank you for the wonderful review. My husband (David) and I have owned Ed’s since 1983. It’s been in the family since 1959; David’s Dad was the original owner “Ed”. We love our little place. It is one of those places that generation after generation frequent. Just The Mucha’s alone we have five generations of customers. Next time you stop by I would love to meet you and shake your hand. Much appreciated. Again “Thank you”!
