Guru means master, and, in this case, the term fits. Guru Burgers & Crepes, a quaint cafe in a popular town-center setting, offers a masterful hamburger, and the service and attention to detail made for a tasty and enjoyable adventure. With several burgers to choose from, my selection was The Pancho – grass-fed Texas Akaushi beef, local jalapeño bacon, pepper-jack cheese, roasted jalapeño, homemade guacamole, fresh tomatoes, Bibb lettuce (not my favorite), and house-made pickles, served on a challah bun. The presentation was simple yet creative, with green parsley pieces sprinkled on the plate and the burger. The cheese was nicely melted over the side of the glistening and juicy patty. The sweet bun contrasted with the jalapeño bite and pepper-jack cheese. Adding sides of beet chips and sweet potato fries only sweetened the deal. Guru offers a nice wine and craft beer selection, as well as an inventive menu of non-burger dishes. Guru Burgers & Crepes is local, fresh and worth the drive to Sugar Land.
