A Burger We Miss: Prince of Hamburgers

In the early 1920’s few people knew what a hamburger was. This is when Doug Prince discovered the hamburger for himself at the State Fair of Texas and decided to make it his life.

Mia Enriquez is one happy gal and she makes what most consider the best brisket tacos in Dallas at her namesake restaurant, Mia’s Tex Mex located on Lemmon Avenue in Dallas.
