Eat Me: Deli News Colossal Onion Burger

deli2by Steven Doyle

Dallas has very few real deli options, but one super reliable source for big pastrami sandwiches, kosher dills, great breakfasts, and the best matzo ball soup in Dallas come from Deli News located in North Dallas.

The jumbo sandwiches are epic, with choices such as the triple-decker, more meat than any human can logically wrap their fists around, one pound pastrami sandwiches that are smoky good and flown direct from a secret source in New York (along with their bread), and the pound cheese burger.  Most probably think kreplach, lox, chopped liver and knish when they think of Deli News, and they should. All terrific. But there are a slew of burgers to choose from as well. 


Consider the Hillcrest, a half pound patty with lettuce, onion and tomato on a freshly baked roll. Sounds pretty innocuous. Then they start going a tad crazy with a Reuben burger, piled with sauerkraut, melted Swiss cheese on toasted rye bread. Or a basic burger with the addition of hot pastrami. That sounds delicious, right?

The ultimate is the Colossal Onion Burger which has two half pound patties, all the veggie basics, bacon, and onion rings to boot. This is one very massive burger that is not meant for the faint of heart.
