Ground beef chain BuffBurger is about to move into the new Citywest Retail Center 3 blocks outside Beltway 8 and just down the street from Phillips’s year-old headquarters and garage-top sports complex. So far, the strip center’s lineup includes almost exclusively food joints of the fast-casual variety, with a lone Ideal Dental office in middle of the east building. Its coming soon sign is pictured in the photo above, west of Yogurtland.
BuffBurger’s spot — its third since opening in the new Alabama Row strip across W. Alabama from the Menil in March — is in the shorter and stouter east building, where it’ll fill in corner at the far end from Panera’s already-open endcap:
3,600-sq.-ft. of space sits between the 2 restaurants.

BuffBurger is fairly good, but the price point is a bit too high. I went to the West Alabama location for lunch a few weeks ago and it was kinda dead. I hope they stick around, but with Burger Joint around the corner and a Shake Shack coming in soon nearby, it will be difficult to justify going to BuffBurger instead.
When will the new Buffburger on Westheimer in Houston,Texas open?
Thanks Rober Silberg
Ditto about the price point. I went to the one on W. Alabama once and I think I paid $17 for a chicken sandwich, fries, and a drink. I guess they have to pay the rent on that shiny new building.
