Bun B may affectionately be known as one of the best emcees to come out of Houston, TX, but he also has the burger game on lock.
Achieving New Feats
According to his Trill Burgers’ Instagram account, the establishment has sold more than 53,000 burgers. The feat happened within the first 30 days of its brick-and-mortar location’s opening to provide the famous smash burgers to his longhorn community.

From the looks of it, Bun B continues to meet his expectations for expanding his portfolio outside of the music industry.
“For me and my family, my musical legacy has been solidified,” the Texas rapper told AfroTech in a 2022 interview. “I own my publishing for several of my albums, not the group albums, but for myself on solo projects and that’s fine, that’s something that you can hand down, but that’s already built.”
Now, he’s building his Trill Burgers imprint onto bigger and better things.
As previously reported by AfroTech, Bun B’s Trill Burgers opened its first flagship restaurant location in early June 2023, just a year after his plans to find the perfect location to make the cuisine available to fellow Houstonians.
“It’s been a long time coming, not just for us, but for anybody that’s had a Trill Burger or wanted a Trill Burger and couldn’t get one,” Bun B said at the time. “We’ve been working hard to find the right location to make it as easily accessible to as many people as possible.”
Fast forward to today, Trill Burgers can be found in the Montrose area of Houston and business is booming. While the smash burger concept may have started as a pop-up alongside his business partner Andy Nguyen, it has become adored by the local community, celebrities, and more.
The No. 1 Burger In America
From Drake calling it the “best burger” he’s ever had, to being voted the No. 1 burger in America by ABC’s “Good Morning America,” Trill Burgers appears to be having the same impression on fans as Bun B’s illustrious, Texas-driven rhymes.
