After our Best Veggie Burgers roundup posted, CultureMap received an onslaught of additional favorites from readers, writers, friends, family members, pets and total strangers.

Some of the city's most beloved burger haunts picked up big vegetarian praise. Beck's PrimePrince's Hamburgers, Miller's Cafe and Southwell's Hamburger Grill received myriad shout-outs as did popular Washington Avenue newcomers The Counter and the W GrillBlake's BBQ & Burgers on the west side got serious props too.

Natachee's offers up a mean veggie burger called the Daughter-in-Law that's made with  beans, red peppers and corn.

Houston hangouts the Hobbit CafeBrasil and Bohemeo's in Eastwood all made the grade as well — each offering multiple patty options beyond the standard black bean varietal.

Natachee's Supper 'n' Punch on Main offers up a mean veggie burger called the Daughter-in-Law that's made with beans, red peppers and corn. CultureMap listings editor and devoted vegan Joel Luks swears by it.

While Ruggle's Green got a mention in our last round-up, one reader wanted to add the impressive black bean burger from Ruggle's Cafe Bakery in Rice Village. Several other readers voiced their love for the veg-option at the typically carnivorous Houston's, which has a meatless burger made from brown rice, sweet soy and oat bran.

But easily one of the most surprisingly recommendations had to be the veggie burger McGonigel's Mucky Duck, a in-house specially that comes topped with beets . . . Well played, Duck.
