In 1982, pep bands were just starting to introduce the hit songs “Physical” and “Eye of the Tiger” into their repertoire. Pep bands, athletes and coaches alike soon learned that the newly opened Keith’s Hamburger Station was the best place to stop for the Permian Basin’s Best Steakfingers, chicken fried steaks, and old fashioned hamburgers.    

For over 20 years, Keith’s Hamburger Station has been awarded Best Steakfingers in the Permian Basin, and it isn’t hard to see why. Every steakfinger dinner is hand-breaded with Keith’s special recipe and cooked to order. They come to your piping hot and full of flavor the Basin cannot get enough of! The first location is at 4324 Andrews Highway, just across from the Ector County Coliseum, Keith’s Hamburger Station is a favorite stop for locals, returning college students and visitors from around the globe during special events such as the Ector County Fair, the SandHills Stock Show and Rodeo, and the biannual Permian Basin International Oil Show. Now Keith’s has a new location at 8200 E. Hwy 191, owned by Derrick and Marcy Bush.

Regulars enjoy daily lunch specials consisting of homemade steakfingers or homemade chicken strips with their choice of fries or mashed potatoes (made fresh daily) and a drink. Keith’s Hamburger Station proudly cooks its food in cholesterol and trans-fat free oil. For the smaller appetite, Keith’s offers half dinners and kids meals, and for those craving a mouthwatering burger, Keith’s is the perfect place to fill that need.

In addition to the restaurant and drive thru, Keith’s offers catering for groups of 20 or more. Catering includes such options as old fashioned hamburgers, homemade steakfingers, homemade chicken strips, roast beef, meatloaf, pork chops, shrimp and chicken fried steak.

On any given day, Keith can be found in the kitchen covered in flour working aside his team members on Andrews Hwy while Derrick is breading and frying steakfingers on 191. Though he won’t give away trade secrets, Keith attributes the Hamburger Station’s success to the grace of God and to the good people of the Permian Basin.

Keith’s Hamburger Station is also actively involved in various charitable events in West Texas. Keith says, “We want to help the community since the community has supported us and kept us in business for 35 years.”

Open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday at both locations, Keith’s Hamburger Station is the perfect lunch or dinner option for working men and women. The restaurant is kept scrupulously clean and service is quick, polite and efficient – quick service food has never been like this before. Keith and Derrick would love for every guest to leave their restaurants satisfied and full; nothing less is acceptable.
