Becks Prime Restaurant Review: Becks Prime, launched in 1985, draws burger enthusiasts and families from West U and River Oaks for its fresh, fast food. Beef is ground on site daily and grilled over mesquite. The original Kirby location is small, but offers a tree-shaded patio and two drive-thru windows, which can back up in the evening when folks are picking up whole dinners of rib-eye steaks, ahi and grilled chicken; all come with salad and sides. Still, the lines are worth it for the blue cheese burger, a half-pound of Black Angus ground chuck, blue cheese, mayo, lettuce and tomato on a sesame seed egg bun; add bacon for one awesome burger. And, yes, the kitchen will cook the beef to medium rare. Becks serves beer and wine by the glass, but for a non-alcoholic sip, try the refreshing homemade lemonade.
