betterBURGER Has A Good Burger, But Oh Those Fries

by Steven Doyle

When you title your restaurant betterBURGER you are tossing down a gauntlet in a city that is obsessed with their beef.  In the past year dozens of burger joints both gourmet and otherwise have opened their doors. It has been a fairly safe bet in the Dallas restaurant industry that burgers sell.

I met one of the owners, Vincent Vitalis, who was more than enthusiastic to chat up anyone who happened into his clean, tidy shop located on Lemmon just west of Inwood road. Vitalis is not necessarily new to the restaurant business.  He comes from a family of entrepreneurs that successfully run local stops such as the Original Market Diner on Harry Hines (think best breakfast and incredible pie) as well as Circle Grill in East Dallas (chicken fried steak and other home cooking fare).           Continue reading

Oh lordy we love a good burger.  Just when we thought we have tried every burger in this meat-loving city, we discover another treasure trove and fantastic versions. This week we discovered one that is only served at lunch, and is chef-driven. That is a term for kicked up, meaty and packed full of culinary loving.   Continue reading

We Checked Out Primebar’s $5 Burger Wednesday

by Steven Doyle

The love affair in Dallas continues with one of its favorite mistresses, the burger. Sure, Dallas is still seeing others like the taco. But Dallas dismissed FroYo and that little sweetheart, cupcake. Fickle and faddish sure, but Dallas’ main squeeze is still the gorgeous burger.

There are plenty of burger options rolling through Dallas. Some of our favorites can cost just a few dollars, and  some of the best are in excess of ten bucks. Last week we heard about a special burger at Primebar and we promised to investigate. But the story was not just that Primebar had a delicious burger, but that on Wednesdays the burger cost just five dollars all day. This past Wednesday we ate every one they had to offer.        Continue reading

Capital Grille’s Waygu and Wine Returns

Waygu&Wine

By Jennifer Thomas

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

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