Pappy Makes A Great Burger

DSC06488by Steven Doyle

It might make for a better story if Pappy’s Old Fashioned Hamburger, Inc was run by Pappy O’Daniel. I envision the rotund man sweeping the crumbs off the floor while whistling a few Soggy Bottom Boy’s tunes. In actuality, the owner does look a bit like O’Daniel, only taller. But that is where the fictional character and the burgermeister part company. The Dallas restaurant located on Mockingbird, very near Love Field Airport, jets out some mighty fine burgers along with a selection of home cooked dinner plates such as catfish and meatloaf. This is a Blue Plate heaven.

Give yourself an excuse to pass through the industrial neighborhood and discover a slice of old fashioned goodness on a plate. Be sure to order the fries since these hand cut babies are simple and delicious. The fries are worth the trip alone, but you will want to stay for the burger.   Continue reading

The second location for the local burger maker, Haystack Burgers and Barley opened in Dallas on Oak Lawn. You may recall our rave review of the Richardson location back in 2013. We were infatuated by the burgers, especially the chili burger and the chicken fried version. That chili on the burger makes our best of list each year, it is that good. Burger making at its finest and a great beer selection.

This is the second outpost of the popular eatery from Jenny and Kevin Galvan which debuted the original Haystack in their Richardson.   Continue reading
