Someburger from Somewhere?
HISTORY OF SOMEBURGER


    Long before Someburger arrived in Baytown, two University of Texas graduates had opened a chain of burger stands called “Somewhere” in the Austin area. The name was inspired by the way the men used to decide where to go to eat during their college days. “Where do you want to eat?” one would ask. “I don't know.... Somewhere,” the other would reply. Bags from Somewhere bore the phrase, “I came from Somewhere full of Someburgers.” Eventually, all but the word “Someburger” was dropped and Someburger was born.

    The chain had established several Texas locations when it started going out of business. In the mid-1950's Otha's father bought the nine Houston, Galveston and Baytown locations. Currently, only two remain - Baytown, owned by Otha, and the Heights, owned by his brother, Don. 

    Before moving to our present location in 1965, SomeburgerOtha's was a small walk-up stand located on Market Street. Though the building appearance has changed, the food has remained the same - with quarter pound, high-quality beef patties and fresh-cut fries instead of frozen in a bag. Vegetables are also cut on site daily. We never use pre-ordered, pre-chopped lettuce, tomatoes or onions. The Someburger tradition of offering good food in a pleasant atmosphere still remains.
