Burger restaurants located on University Drive East and the Northgate District of University Drive across the street from Texas A&M University.
What are the best places near Texas A&M campus in College Station to get a burger & fries? Since we are in the taxi cab biz we simply asked our customers.who live in B/CS the same question. Over a 3-4 month period this is what they said.
Grub Burger Bar
Grub Burger is located on East University Drive about a mile from Texas A&M. The chili cheese & fries burger has been mentioned a lot. The fries are on top of the patty in the hamburger itself, not on the side. Tracy J. who is a student at A&M from Iowa, and a vegetarian said "the hippie chickpea burger is yummy, and so are the sweet potato fries..." Grub Burger also has a bar with 9 or 10 beers on draft, and superb alcoholic milkshakes.
The Dixie Chicken bar & grill at Northgate District has been around for decades, and so has the cook. Last I heard the menu is bigger and better. They have a couple dozen burger choices on the menu. Most are typical, but they also have some unique burgers to choose from. The onion rings are a popular menu item, unless of course you're on a first date. I'm almost certain Mondays are still half price burgers. Big selection of beer. Locally owned.
Willies Grill & Icehouse
Willies large menu has quite a few choices, but we're here to talk about burgers. During peak hours there might be a waiting line. That tells you the food is good. One of the best bacon cheese burgers I've had lately. Willies also has a hickory cheddar cheese burger with BBQ sauce & grilled onions. The black n blue burger with peppercorn and bleu cheese was given a big thumbs by Jeremy who works at Post Oak Mall in College Station.
What is a slider? A small sandwich or hamburger on a bun. Mickey's in College Station has some of the best. They also have the best reviews for all burger restaurants around. The Willie Nelson has Angus beef with applewood smoked bacon. The Volcano Slider is a beef patty, cheddar cheese,with chili. Not only do they have other beef items on the menu, they also have nice variety of other tasty sliders. Chicken breast, pulled pork, steak etc.

Urban Slide is boasted as the worlds longest slip & slide. The photo's were taken at Wolf Pen in College Station Tx on Saturday May 3rd 2015. Besides having fun it's a great way to cool off in the summer heat. Urban Slide travels city to city bringing fun in the sun wherever they go. You can see where their next stop is in the website. Cost depends on how many times you want to ride the slide.
In the theurbanslide.com website it states children must be over 5 years old. It also shows that anyone under 18 must have parents approval. I saw a lot of teens and not many parents, so I don't know if that rule is chiseled in stone or not. It looks very safe and there is not a shortage of people overseeing the event. Someone is always nearby to help.
You can see more photos on our Google Plus page. We submit all Urban Slide photos (here and at G+) to the public domain. No restrictions. +Collegestationtaxi365
January 2015 about 17% of Portland's taxi cabs lined up to protest the rideshare service Uber. Obviously they felt like it was a good cause. They could have been out making money. You know, that green stuff that feeds the family and pays the mortgage. It's the only reason people go to work. Don't be fooled if someone tells you differently.
It was a gathering of taxi drivers and company owners asking the city of Portland to "make ride-sharing companies play by the same rules as cabs."
As a taxi cab service in College Station do we detest Uber? No, we live in the land of opportunity. Do we feel the same rules for taxicabs should be applied to Uber? Yes. Don't make rules if they are not equally applied to all in the same niche. Overhead to own a taxi service is not cheap. The cost of insurance alone is pricey. The sole reason taxi's are a tiny bit more expensive than Uber.
Since the onset of Uber our business has felt the economic impact on a large scale. Simple and true. It doesn't mean we totally despise Uber like some we know in the taxi biz. It simply means we have to try new techniques and ideas to give the consumer what they want. Good quality service at a fair price.
