Houston Rap Royalty, Bun B, Opening Smashburger Pop Up This Weekend

Houston’s culinary scene is about to Get Throwed.

The burger joint is the product between the King of Trill, Andy Nguyen of Afters Ice Cream, and siblings Patsy and Benson Vivares of Sticky’s Chicken. Trill Burgers specializes in smashburgers – a West Coast-style of hamburger that is basically what it sounds like: burgers with thin, compressed patties with crispy edges and a toasted flavor.

“For years I’ve been fascinated with the culinary scene, trying to find the best entry point for me. Today I can say I’ve found it,” the rapper wrote in an Instagram post.

There isn’t much word on the menu specifics beyond burgers and fries, but interested restaurant-goers can check B’s culinary Youtube series, Trill Mealz, for possible insights.


“We are so excited and can’t wait to share to the rest of Houston what we have in store for y’all!! You’re not going to want to miss our first pop up!”

Trill Burgers plans to open up a brick and mortar at a later date. The pop-up opens at Sticky’s Chicken, 2313 Edwards St., Suite #190, at noon on Sunday, August 8, and will go on until they run out of supplies.
