New Fry Burger Is A Yawner

fry burgerby Steven Doyle

While most fast food restaurants are enticing customers with meaty bacon slices and pretzel buns, number three ranked Burger King is attempting to woo you with four French fries. The burger chain announced today that they are now offering a buck burger which consists of a meat patty, a bun and four fries. This is the type of innovation that will forever keep the King in third place.

On a happier note, you can get this burger delivered.

Two Hot Dallas Burgers Being Delivered To Lakewood

libertyby Steven Doyle    photo by Robert Bostick

As the Lakewood community continues its growth a few new and familiar Dallas area restaurants have staked claim on some highly visible real estate. Interesting enough the new restaurants are being careful to keep things interesting enough for the neighborhood, and even giving the new spots a warm enough feel that will give an impression that the restaurants have always belonged to their new digs.

There are two particular burger outlets that will give pause to the local fan. Liberty Burger should be open very soon and co-owner Mariel Street is staying clear of any semblance of being a chain. Even though there are currently only two of the burger restaurants, we know there are plenty on the way including the Dallas Farmers Market.   Continue reading

One of our sharp-eyed Eagle Scout readers sent word that Grub Burger Bar would be opening soon on Greenville Avenue at University Blvd. in Dallas. If you have been anywhere near Texas A&M or College Station, you know Grub to be this fantastic version of Hopdoddy (which is based in Austin coincidently) serving up freshly ground beef (in-house like Hopdoddy) and buns baked by their own little hands.   Continue reading

Recently we published a list of our ten favorite burgers in Dallas. The list included mostly mom and pop operations, some who have been in business for as long as 55 years. In the past few years Dallas has become a Mecca of burgers, which certainly cannot be a bad thing. We all love a good burger, and they are certainly fun to compare and contrast the flavors of beef, bun and oozing ingredients.

Yesterday we paid a visit to a new burger outlet that only recently opened for business in Richardson. Needless to say we loved what we found or you would not be reading this text today. Haystack Burgers and Barley is owned by couples  Kevin and Jenny Galvan and Rob and Christine Wondoloski.       Continue reading

The Ultimate List Of The 10 Best Burgers In Dallas

shadys2by Steven Doyle

Narrowing down the very best burger in Dallas has always been a chore. The last time we tried to name the five best the list zoomed past five and slid into home base at twenty-five. Even at twenty-five we missed some burgers we adore. Then the list was tainted by time and the ravels of new burger joints opening across town.

Today marks another National Burger Day holiday (we officially recognize a pair of these holidays) which gives us yet another shot at plowing through a few burger filled weekends to bring a freshly appointed list. And this time we stopped at ten. No take backs until the next round of burger days appear on the calendar unless we make up another burger day like Hallmark makes up their special reasons for greeting cards (I am looking at you Quatro de Mayo and Decemberween).  Continue reading
