Houstonians hungry for a taste of Bun B’s award-winning burgers will have two opportunities to sample them this month. Trill Burgers will host pop-ups on Sunday, August 14 at the 8th Wonder Brewery (12-6 p.m.) and Sunday, August 28 at City Hall (3-7 p.m.).
Owned by Bun B in partnership with restaurateur Andy Nguyen and Houston publicist Nick Scurfield, Trill Burgers serves smash burgers made with two patties of Texas-raised 44 Farms beef, cheese, pickles and Trill sauce on a small Martin potato bread. The burger has popped up at numerous local and national events, including the CultureMap Tastemaker Awards and the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo.
Interest in the concept has been skyrocketing since Bun B and chef Mike Pham won the title of hello america Ultimate Burger Spot on a show last month. A panel of celebrity judges selected Trill Burgers over competitors from three other cities based on its thin patty construction and smooth components.
Trill Burgers will serve its full menu in both pop-ups. This includes the OG Trill Burger, Grilled Onion Burger, Vegan Smash Burger, and Seasoned Fries. All items will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis, so expect to line up early.
Bun B and 8th Wonder Brewery are frequent collaborators. The Houston hip-hop legend has teamed up with brewery EaDo to create Brew GK, an apple kolsch, and Trillionaire, a watermelon-based seltzer, both of which will be available at the pop-up. Last year, they teamed up to organize an event to benefit the victims of the Astroworld festival disaster.
The Town Hall event will feature a family-friendly environment and some of Bun B’s favorite food trucks in Houston. Expect a full lineup of vendors and performers closer to the event date.
