Uptown’s Capital Grille, known for its dry aged steaks and award-winning wine list announces the return of its Wagyu and Wine program, a limited-time, gourmet burger and wine pairing experience offered exclusively in the restaurant’s lounge. Now through November 23, 2014, guests of the lounge area can enjoy one of three featured American Wagyu beef burgers paired with a glass of Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon or J Pinot Noir for the price of $25.
Best known for its superior marbling and incredible richness, Wagyu beef is highly prized, and it pairs beautifully with wine. This year, in addition to its signature Wagyu Cheeseburger – served on a toasted brioche roll and topped with Havarti cheese, a sunny-side up egg and crisp onions – The Capital Grille has added two equally mouth-watering options: the Kona Crusted Wagyu Burger with shallot mayo and the Wild Mushroom Wagyu Cheeseburger with 15-year aged balsamic. Each burger is accompanied by Parmesan Fries. Continue reading
Try the The Fon-Duuuude burger at the Swiss Pastry Shop in Fort Worth. Here you will taste a half pound Wagyu beef patty with Hen of the Woods, King Trumpet and Brown and White Beech Mushrooms smothered in Swiss Fondue. This might possibly be the most insanely well constructed burger we have seen in a while. And believe me, we see them all.

A recent visit to Strokers on Harry Hines netted us a really good char-grilled burger, a pretty tasty Cuban sandwich (aptly named the Mark Cuban), and a tour through the nearly 2-acre facility. It was a searing hot Sunday afternoon when we met with Strokers owner Rick Fairless who guided us across the biker’s dream campus, taking us into the secret labyrinth’s where he has a crew at various stages of customizing insanely cool motorcycles. It was there he shared his plan to take over the Big State Drug, removing the apothecary portion of the historic 1948 building, and building around the 50’s era soda fountain. Continue reading
We were sent word today that Becks Prime will be closing their Greenville Avenue location tomorrow. Beck’s is the home of the drive through burger and steak restaurant. The steaks and burgers are actually quite good, and still have two other locations in Dallas. One is on Oak Lawn, the other on Forest at Preston. I thought it was pretty good for a fast casual restaurant. Have you tried their food? What did you think? Continue reading
