Best hamburger in Galveston

Hubcap Grill offers the best hamburger in Galveston. They also have the best bourbon selection on the island.

I am not a skinny man. There are lots of reasons for this, and one of the biggest is beef. One of the others is bourbon. I have had a great deal of both. I have now had hamburgers on four and a half continents (depending on how you count Central America). So, when I say this next bit it is out of considerable experience: Not only does Hubcap Grill have the best hamburger in Galveston, it is the best hamburger I have ever had. They also have an impressive bourbon selection, and I have already demanded that my family return when we are in Galveston this Summer for our cruise.

Royal Caribbean has sailed at least two ships from Texas for several years now. Currently, only the Liberty of the Seas is scheduled to sail from Texas in Summer 2021. Speculation has been rife that Royal will move an Oasis Class ship to Galveston. They have also delayed the announcement of their entire Caribbean schedule.

Miller’s Seawall Grill

Miller’s Seawall Grill is located next to the Hotel Galvez in Galveston. It is a fantastic breakfast and lunch spot.

I always get to Galveston early before a cruise. I want to avoid the stress of late flights. More to the point, a couple of days in Galveston is an important part of my vacation. I also work hard to find new and interesting places to eat. When staying at the Hotel Galvez this year, we walked across the street to Miller’s Seawall Grill for breakfast. I am glad we did. It was amazing.
