There is only one remaining Prince's Hamburgers in Houston and it is located at the Sharpstown Golf Course, just off Bellaire Blvd. and near Gessner. Prince's is a Houston institution. Originally a fleet of drive-ins around town with carhop service. Throughout the 40's and through the 60's, these were a great way to have an excellent burger with fries, shake, onion rings. But their menu was more than that. For me, the treat was the open steak sandwich with a big batch of onion rings. My parents defaulted to the fried shrimp platter.
You see, there's 14 years difference between my sister and me. So when I was just getting into my teen years, she was still a young 'un. My parents had to choose wisely where to eat because, you know, babies. So we dined on Tex Mex at El Patio on Telephone Road once a week and at Prince's at the Scott at 45 location once a week. Sometimes more, as we really loved the food.
Those onion rings!
Here is some more history from the site. The current owner/manager/chief cook and bottle washer is John Broussard, who is keeping the Prince's legacy alive with its one location at the Sharpstown Golf Course.
