The Backyard Burger Grill-Off at Discovery Green pits chefs from participating eateries⎯including The Counter, Houston Texans Grill, and Roots Bistro⎯against each other to grill up the best feasts in three categories: Best Classic Burger, Best Non-Beef Burger, and Best Side Dish. Local Texan craft brews complement the burgers, as do sports-themed events such as a putting challenge and a bocce tournament. General-admission ticket holders gain entry to the festival from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., while VIP ticket holders can attend from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
