This Just In: America’s Best Burger Finds Brick-and-Mortar Home in Heart of Montrose

THE CORNER OF Richmond and Shepherd is famously home to a long-empty James Coney Island (RIP). But the prime piece of real estate, which includes a drive-through, will soon be transformed into the first brick-and-mortar location of Bun B’s celebrated Trill Burgers, which has garnered tons of praise since its first pop-up in 2021.


The news caps an eventful year for Trill Burgers, which won the title of the best burger in the country on Good Morning America’s weeklong, televised cookoff competition in July. The fall was filled with pop-ups where the signature smashburgers — 44 Farms beef, onions, pickles and Trill Sauce — flew off the grills at locations like 8th Wonder, City Hall and the Southern Smoke Festival.

Bun B himself is a mainstay at the pop-ups, and Houstonians can be sure they’ll see his face at the permanent location when it opens early next year.

Duos, Trios and Teams: ‘Next-Generation’ Mother-Daughter Leppert Duo Debuts

Clare Leppert and Clementine, the Cavachon. Leigh Leppert and Benny, the Bernedoodle.

HOW DID YOU come together as a team? This fall, we are celebrating the introduction of an exciting real estate collaboration between Clare Leppert, longtime Houston Realtor®, and daughter Leigh Leppert. Clare shared a 20+ year real estate partnership with her mother, Bette Carpenter, until Bette’s death in 2016. Having worked solo for several years, Clare in 2021 was awarded Houston Business Journal’s No. 2 Luxury Realtor® in Houston. Leigh, who has been working in marketing for the past decade, has always shared a passion for real estate and watched Clare successfully balance family and career. We are excited to re-create the next generation of a mother-daughter duo at Compass!
