Harvey’s Closing January 14th

harv1by Steven Doyle

If you have lived in Dallas any length of time you may be familiar with Harvey Goff, owner of Goff’s (now Harvey’s) which is one of the legends of the Dallas burger business. He is made up of one part snark, one park burger aficionado,  and another part patriot. Consider this king of burgers the original Soup Nazi that Dallas has endeared. since the 50’s.

It was 1970 when Harvey Goff took over his family burger business that had been in business since 1950. The years that followed are what legends are made of. Of course the thin pattied burger was char grilled with appropriate hash marks. This is one of the burgers of my youth, and one my departed mother enjoyed most. You might add Prince of Burgers, a drive-in on Lemmon, to this list and yet another establishment in East Dallas called the Dairy-ette. But it was Goff’s that brings the most interesting memories.  Continue reading

We Dig The Dugg Burger

DSC07191by Steven Doyle

Burgermania continues to thrive in Dallas as more restaurants open that feature burgers and more burgers.The latest we tried is one called Dugg Burger which the original location on Garland Road in Casa Linda and a second outpost on Park and Preston. What makes the Dugg Burger unique is not only the process, but the high quality ingredients and the simple pricing scheme.

First for the process. It is a bit unusual, but definitely what makes the Dugg unique. The moment you walk in the door they fire a burger patty. They already know you will have a burger because that is all they serve. Then they take a fresh Village Baking Company bun (our favorite) and hollow out the top inside with a patented auger. Never fear, nothing is wasted, and they use the cored bun portion to make bread pudding. That comes later. The bun is then buttered and set on another special tool they had created to fire the augured portion of the bun so the inside gets fully browned and crisp.   Continue reading
