“Fruit stand turned restaurant”

n 1938, Nona & Aubrey Lankford started a small fruit stand in the heart of the 4th Ward in Houston, Texas.  In 1939 they relocated across the street to our current location of 88 Dennis.  Originally it was a Mom & Pop Grocery Store.  We started making Deli Sandwiches in the early '70's.  In the late 1970's we introduced the Burger.  The first Daily Lunch Plate special back in the '80's was the Enchilada Plate, which is still the same recipe today. In the early '90's the restaurant  became popular as the neighborhood changed and the grocery store concept was ushered out for the burgers.    Lankford's Grocery & Market is managed by local legend, Eydie Lankford Prior, and husband Cotton.  Continuing on the legacy of this family owned and operated business and joining Eydie and Cotton is son Dean Newhouse, Daughter-In-Law Jessica Prior, and Grandson Jordan Prior.  In addition much of our success is contributed to the loyal staff that we have been blessed with for many years.

I love that this place still has the mom & pop feel! I loved that it's in a grocery-- very casual and different. The burgers are amazing, and be sure to check out what specials they're offering!
