Dee Lincoln Steak & Burger Bar’s Plano location will open to the public for dinner service this Friday, April 25th. Located at 4701 West Park Boulevard, Lincoln has appointed Andrew Powers (Mansion on Turtle Creek, Trece, Waldorf Astoria in Utah, Magnolia Hotel Dallas) as executive chef of this location. The menu is an approachable one with updated steakhouse fare and inventive burger recipes in a comfortable and relaxed setting.
Powers has been with Lincoln since she opened the first location in Uptown Dallas, September 2013. Lincoln says, “chef Powers has that rustic sensibility while at the same time refined cooking that is a good fit for this concept. He also understands the importance of providing only the best product possible and goes out of his way working with the farmers and purveyors on sourcing.” Powers and executive chef Juliard Ishizuka, from the Uptown location, will work in tandem and support one another for both locations.

The Cuban Burger is a typical 303 burger with slices of ham and a bacon cup filled with pulled pork. Bacon cup. Filled with pulled pork. And of course there is always a side of those hand cut fries.

We both have been getting mixed stories, so we chose not to run with anything at that time. Today, Robert Wilonsky at the Dallas Morning News came up with his version of the story that points to a large possibility that Schmitz has seen its final year. Continue reading
Snuffer’s New Bacon-Guacamole Burger
by Andrew Chalk
Some restaurants cease being restaurants and transform into institutions. Snuffer’s, established in 1978 (that’s a year after the release of the Apple II, and concurrent with some pretty gruesome hair styles) has as much of a case as anywhere in Dallas to have made that transition.
Last weekend, the original Lower Greenville Avenue spot reopened, complete with a brand new menu which is… the brand old menu! Cheddar fries and sloppy burgers are the core as always and regulars piled in for the opening weekend at which I was a media guest. Continue reading

I think of something mighty tasty about this time of year. 7-layer dip. You know the stuff that makes parties a party? Pass up on the previously frozen baby quiche. Just say no to horrific chicken wings. You know you want to be the first to take a plunge into that dip that is layered with everything you love. Continue reading
