It’s that time of year again when everything is kicked up with Hatch peppers. It is almost like a holiday filled with pageantry, gifts and special surprises. Take the Hatchiest Chili Cheeseburger: Wagyu beef, Hatch Wagyu Chili con carne, and Hatch chile queso blanco from the Swiss Pastry Shop in Fort Worth. That bun you see depicted here is also baked in house for ultimate freshness. Continue reading

From the same owners of Mudsmith, Barcadia, and It’ll Do, Pints and Quarts opened their doors today. The kitschy burger joint is located on the south west corner of Ross and Greenville Avenue.

Outlaw Burgers has been around Roanoke for a few years now but I only recently decided to stop by. I had heard rumor that they made a good burger and those rumors were true. It’s a kitchy little place just off 377 in old Roanoke. Walk in and order at the counter. The menu is a chalk board above the counter. Burgers, sandwiches, BBQ and all the standard sides are offered.

Dallas has another burger offering, this time it is in Highland Park Village with the recent opening of KT Burger, which is adjacent to the theater. We made a pit stop to check out the burger and the new digs on a Monday evening and found a packed house bustling with burger eaters, families, and generally a happy crowd (we asked).
The burger is wonderfully basic, made with an 80/20 grind, lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles and mustard, which is the way every great Texan would dress their burger. Of course you may have it prepped your way. We added a side of the house-made venison chili for an extra bite and found this to be a great choice. In addition to a pretty damned good burger KT offers a selection of sandwiches, hearty salads, brats and dogs, and a few tacos. Do not miss either the sturdy hand cut fries or onion rings. Both are a great choice. Continue reading
In 1989 when Gene Street Jr. and Dace Street opened Snookies on Oak Lawn they most likely had no idea what an institution the bar would become. To this day they serve up one of the better chicken fried steaks in the old family Street tradition.
Checking in at Snookies recently with a hankering for one of their fine chicken fried steaks, a true plate hanger with a smooth and creamy gravy dotted with the appropriate amount of cracked black pepper, I was diverted by one of the long time staffers, Caroline Belfour who insisted I try out the burger. She waxed gingerly how the hand formed meat patty and all the accouterments were made in house. This included a special spicy sauce that should be doused into the catsup for an extra tang with the hand-cut fries. Continue reading
Located across from the Trinity River on White Settlement road sits a little place that serves up big flavors. Thurber Mingus has been open for roughly 2 months now and starting to find its place. They strive to use only local and Texas sourced products including a good selection of beer from most, if not all, of the local breweries. You will also find plenty of local beers and spirits used at the bar. All mixes and syrups are created in house.
Inside is laid back with a good sized bar. Outside has a very nice two level patio area and a garden area with picnic tables and chairs all made from reclaimed pallet wood and stage at the end of the garden for live music. The outdoor space is spacious and comfortable. Continue reading
