Best Burgers of 2020

adair3by Steven Doyle

Today is National Cheeseburger Day and we have been planning for this day since January dining on over 125 burgers in anticipation of today’s list. So many burgers were consumed that we decided to break the list apart in two categories. This list will have burger restaurants, and a second list will involved restaurants that have burgers but not as their main offering.

Q&A with Kenny Mills at the Original Chop House Burgers

millsby Steven Doyle

I have known this week’s chef for quite a while.

A man who makes a burger that we queue up for with bated breath. A man we just recently sat with and discussed his interesting history. Continue reading

It has been a struggle learning to walk, type and speak again. I haven’t done these things well yet, but with the help of some very good friends I have managed. Continue reading

While raising a family, Big Al spent the late ‘60s and early ‘70s as a meat salesman for Farmer’s Meat Market in downtown Dallas. This was when Al first sold briskets, hams and other meats to a considerable array of now-popular barbecue restaurants.

“Travis Dickey, Red Bryan, Bob White – you name it. I sold to all of them,” said Al in 2016, recalling an era when brisket and prime cuts were more dominant in the North than the South. Continue reading
