I was staying overnight for a visit with a physician on Tuesday, September 11rh. I arrived in the area around 3PM and walked about a block and smelled a delicious aroma coming from what appeared to be a section of fast food places. Went in...looked at the menu and was very pleased to see such moderate prices in what one would expect high prices. I like hamburgers but not the kind you get in some fast food places. My friend and myself both ordered the Southwest Burger and an order of fries. The young lady who took the order was very pleasant and assured us our order would be delivered to our table. After a reasonable time she appeared with two very large hamburgers that were delicious. There was a 1/3 lb. meat patty that was thoroughly cooked but also tender and juicy. The bun was stuffed with pepper jack cheese, avocados, lettuce, and grilled onions. One thing that immediately impressed me was that it wasn't over salted but only mildly seasoned. The order of fries turned out to be just as good, they appeared to be fresh sliced and were served crispy, hot, and tender. As good as it was it was more than I could eat but my friend gladly finished it for me saying it would be a shame to waste such a good hamburger.
Leaving pleasantly full, we conducted some business in downtown Houston and several hours later found ourselves back in the area heading for our hotel. Wanting something to take along for a light evening meal we again passed Cliff's. Neither of us wanted another hamburger but decided to go in and ake another look at the menu. The result was that we ordered an Itanian Sub which was large enough for two. Next to the check out counter there was a display of small pecan pies. Again, the price was very reasonable and the same young lady was there and greeted us like old friends. At the hotel we unwraped the sub and it was full of delicious cold cuts, with lettuce, tomatoes and Italian dressing. The pecan pie was also very tasty.
For value, taste, and convenience visiting Cliff's in the Texas Medical Center was an inexpensive and very tasty experience. If I'm in the area again there are several other hamburger combination I'd like to try as long as those delicious grilled onions are on them.More
