Eat Me: The Fon-Duuuude Burger At the Swiss Pastry Shop

swiss pasry shop

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.

LTO is the quirky restaurant that changes chefs and concepts every four months, which is decided on by the public via and online voting system.The Trinity Groves restaurant is on its third chef, and the model seems to be working out very well. Each chef has been endeared with a public that enjoys their restaurants squeaky new. Egger comes to us from Santa Barbara, California and has a penchant for meat. She comes from a storied history of butchers, which fits well within the Dallas dining model.   Continue reading

Stroker’s Owners Opening Soda Fountain In Irving

DSC03378by Steven Doyle

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

Becks Prime Closing Greenville Location

becks2by Steven Doyle

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

Moose Report: Addison Ice House

the ice houseby Alex “Moose” Perez

Snuggled away between Farmers Branch and Addison, lies a very cool bar and grill – Addison Ice House. I just recently had the pleasure of meeting the staff for Addison Ice House, and after speaking with bartender Ricardo, he suggested I try ‘The Ice House’ burger. Let me be the first to tell you that among all the burgers I’ve had in the last couple of months and really had some bite in it.

The Ice House Burger is comprised of a half pound beef patty, pepper jack cheese, guacamole, jalapeno ranch and the kicker – fried jalapenos, all sandwiched between a tasty bun. Chef Troy Tickle came from Chop House Burger in Arlington said that his Ice House Burger is their best seller. There was no disagreement on my behalf. The smokiness from the beef patty and the tanginess from the fried jalapenos complimented each other very well.

A Chop Off The Old Block

In early May I reported on a steakhouse in downtown Dallas that flew under the radar in terms of its innovative approach to the toughest restaurant genre in Dallas — the steakhouse. Recall, we sent out-of-towners Smith & Wollensky, Flemings and BLT Steak packing. Even the spellingly challenged were not saved. N9Ne showed that it had exactly one, and not n9ne lives, in Dallas’s ghost town, Victory Park. My find, Dallas Chop House had innovative steak cuts, sides that deserved first-tier status, and preparation that was skillful and consistent. The Dallas Chop House gang, DRG concepts, spun off a baby brother in the form of Chop House Burger (CHB), which quickly gained a following of its own in its Main Street location near the mother ship. DRGs plan was always to go multi-site (although not through franchising, which, says manager Nafees Alam, is where concepts ‘go to die’).   Continue reading
