Eat Me: TJ’s Yacht Club Burger

tj3by Steven Doyle

Do you feel the Earth rumbling just a tad? It could be that the annual craveDFW burger list is making its way to you very soon. The journey is long and arduous, filled with Kraft slices and pre-formed burger patties that have long expired in the depths of their freezer banks. But then there are the gems, the holy grail of burgers. Not many, maybe a dozen in toto found around our fair city. These are the burgers we hold dear, and we love to share with you month in and out. And we plan not just one list but two. One for chef driven restaurant burgers, and the other will be filled with burger only restaurants. Fun! Continue reading

Laurel Tavern Burger Is The Object Of My Affection

LMPR_LaurelTavern_Interior-05by Steven Doyle

The story sounds familiar, a few guys who own a couple of restaurants in California visit Dallas and have such an amazing time one of them decides to move here and open an outpost. This was the case for one of the owners of the very new Laurel Tavern on Lowest Greenville Avenue, home to delicious burgers and interested apps and cocktails.

And indeed it is one of my favorites now in Dallas.  Continue reading

Chop House Burger Curled Our Toes

Leading the pack of downtown burgers is none other than Chop House Burger with its beautiful glossy brioche bun, juicy medium cooked beef patty and the freshest vegetation for an absolute win. This is what a burger should look and taste like.

A burger that is far too massive loses its appeal quickly with a sloppy slide of mess, but the Chop House burger is perfectly sized to give a large bite yet remain neat and tidy. That bun is made locally from Constantine’s and the beef is am wallop of black angus for perfect quality control. Hard to miss when you begin with great ingredients.  Continue reading

It was just a few years ago that hot dogs were quite the fashion plate, but competition was fierce and as fast as many arrived on the scene, all delicious and crave worthy, they vanished seemingly overnight. A fairly new doggery to the Dallas landscape that has been a proven concept for eight years which first opened in Pasadena made its entry this past year and has been building a strong following in Richardson. Meet Dog Haus.  Continue reading

In an unlikely section of West Dallas they are making a burger that is altogether satisfying and rates high on our list of great Dallas burgers.
