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

A custom made burger packed with all sorts of flavor elements along with a pile of freshly fried onion rings for twelve bucks, with a side of the new Mav’s Bud Light for a four-dollar markup can make for a pretty good game.

A Burger We Miss: Prince of Hamburgers

prince4

In the early 1920’s few people knew what a hamburger was. This is when Doug Prince discovered the hamburger for himself at the State Fair of Texas and decided to make it his life. He opened a small little “drive in” on Lemmon Avenue in Dallas. A virtual one man show.

In 1932 he took a trip to Houston and decided that it was there that he would build his empire. He purchased a small Weber’s Root Beer stand on Main Street and quickly changed the Houston restaurant scene for years to come.   Continue reading
