The Texas Bucket List – Rutledge Hamburgers in Brownsville
Located in Downtown Brownsville, literally blocks away from the border, Rutledge is a unique burger joint in a teeny tiny alleyway that's been operating since 1924. Gloria Perez has been keeping this Texas tradition alive since she purchased it from the family that opened it in 1995. But she still remembers her first itty-bitty burger at Rutledge when she first came to the states in the 80’s. Gloria started working for the restaurant and at the time, Hilda Rutledge the woman who opened this business all those years ago was still flipping her famous food. Hilda’s son Martin took over and eventually sold it to Gloria. This burger joint is focused on selling quality burgers in an enclosed alleyway where you can touch both sides of the wall at the same time.
With decades of burger tradition tumbling around your taste buds, it is easy to see how Rutledge has made this burger joint a truly worthy stop.
