Diners at World’s Burgers restaurant off FM 1488 can expect to find traditional burger and breakfast menus, each with a global spin.

World’s Burgers was founded in Montgomery in 2011 and launched its second location at the Marcel Town Center serving The Woodlands and southern Conroe in December 2018. Owner and founder Eva Alonso said she first created the restaurant concept to draw both local diners looking for new burger options and customers seeking a taste of home.

“I wanted to bring ... people from around the world to come to a place where they can say, ‘I want to go and try my hometown burger,’” she said.

Eva Alonso first got into the restaurant business through the fast food industry. She said she rose to hold an area management position over the course of more than 20 years before deciding to develop her own brand.

Alonso’s husband, Louis Alonso, said the Montgomery World’s Burgers first opened with a total of seven cultural menu options, which the Alonsos have since grown to 20 themed sandwich options for both new and regular patrons to sample.


According to Eva, favorites include the Brazilian burger, which features toppings such as egg and avocado, and the Hawaiian burger with grilled pineapple and ham. In addition to its beef-based menu options, World’s Burgers also serves regional chicken and vegetarian sandwiches alongside entrees such as chicken strips and hot dogs.

Eva said she has received a positive reception from the diverse clientele at both World’s Burgers locations with the restaurant’s sampling of assorted burger varieties.

“I have customers from Brazil, and they all love this Brazilian burger. [They say] ‘Reminds me of how we used to cook it back home.’ The Jamaican chicken, I have customers come from Jamaica, and they like it. [They say] ‘Oh my gosh, this is what we do in our country,’” Eva said.

In addition to its namesake burgers, the restaurant began serving daily breakfast last fall.

World’s Burgers’ newest menu features pancakes, Belgian waffles, omelets, croissants and tacos. The global theme can be found in items such as the Caribbean croissant, which comes stuffed with tropical sauce and grilled plantains and pineapples. Gluten-free and ketogenic-friendly options are available as well.

Eva said she plans to continue expanding World’s Burgers’ menu in the future and may eventually open new locations as well.

“We plan to grow,” she said. “We just need to let more customers know we have breakfast, but the response so far, they love it.”
