The mega shakes are the indulgence of a lifetime at Brickhouse Burgers & Shakes. Co-owners James Richardson and Dudley Dort are cousins from Brooklyn, but they’ve quickly acclimated to “everything’s bigger in Texas.”
The mega shakes are presented in sizable, retro glassware. The Cookie’n’creme shake features Oreo cookies on the rim and a whipped cream topping. The RPO is a peanut butter shake topped with Reese’s crumbled peanut butter cups and pieces. The restaurant added a shake bar, so any milkshake layman can be inspired to create malted artistry.
If you prefer savory over sweet, the Brunch Burger includes applewood smoked bacon, cheddar cheese and homemade hash topped with a fried egg.
Richardson and Dudley work closely with the Lake Highlands Public Improvement District to help cater neighborhood events. Richardson says he enjoys the conversations customers are always willing to be part of when stopping by.
“We just got attached to it because everyone that walks in here, they give you a little piece of Lake Highlands,” he says.
