Parigi For A Joyous Burger and Brunch

par3.jpgby Steven Doyle

The hunt for the best burgers continues and we were tipped off that Parigi had one of the very best in town. Only sold at lunch and brunch, the burger is an ever revolving plate of joy. Let’s just begin with the word joy and see where that takes us today.

Sitting at brunch for a burger was a bit difficult for me since I am aware of the menu and know of items that are certain “must have’s” such as the deviled eggs. These tiny beasts are always a correct choice with each visit and is another revolving dish that is created by a different staff member each day. I have never tested this claim, but assume if I dined at Parigi 365 times in a row (gasp, another joy), I would sample 365 different recipes  for deviled eggs. Worthy of attempt to be sure.

Adair’s Burger is Still Mighty and Meaty After All These Years

Adair’s Saloon opened in 1963 on Cedar Springs and operated by S.L. and Ann Adair. They were known for their cold beer and a half pound cheeseburger that brought in plenty of local college students who were encouraged to let their artistic side out by marking up the walls with graffiti.    Continue reading

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

Wingfield’s Burger Mecca

wingfieldby Steven Doyle

The most common question I am asked is which is the best burger in Dallas. I have a love-hate relationship with this question as the answer is in constant flux. It is either the last burger I had, or the next one. But in all honesty, there are about a dozen great burgers in Dallas that I would crave. Actually, the list is broader if you account for all the great chef-driven burgers which, to me, is difficult to compare to a burger only joint. The burgermeister deserves his own list, his own hall of fame, his own glory.  Continue reading

A Fantastic Burger Find: Stock and Barrel

o (17)by Steven Doyle

In our ever vigilant desire to find the best burgers in the Dallas area we have separated them into two classes, a chef driven burger and the classic burger joint where that seems to be their primary vocation.  This hunt for the very best has led us across the city to some pretty amazing examples of what a burger should be. A great burger means an interesting bun, toasted or not, quality meat, and a smattering of high grade accouterments. This curious chase chase brought us to Stock and Barrel.  Continue reading
