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

Slater’s 50/50, a unique Burger, Bacon and Beer restaurant, brings its notorious over-the-top menu and namesake patty to Dallas and is now unofficially open.

Making its Dallas debut in Lower Greenville, this location is the brand’s first franchise. Partner and franchisee, Dave Coussirat, first experienced Slater’s 50/50 during a trip to San Diego and knew he had to bring the concept to his hometown of Dallas.

“It was love at first bite for my family,” said Coussirat. “With so many creative burgers, bacon and craft beer, Slater’s 50/50 was an obvious fit for the Lone Star State.  We’re excited to make it part of Texas”.  Continue reading

Hard Rock Hosts World Burger Tour 2017

DSC01101by Steven Doyle

Shedding any preconceived notions of what a burger might be like at a Hard Rock Cafe we  checked out the latest World Burger Tour and were greatly surprised. The burger at Hard Rock is a player.

Typically you would find a burger with cheese, bacon and lettuce and other requisite toppings at Hard Rock along with their beautifully hand formed half-pound patty cooked anyway you please, including rare. This is a distinction shared by few burger makers in our area and is a sign of freshly ground beef that is never frozen. So dismiss any notions of mass production. These babies are legit and large enough to please any binging meat-eater.  Continue reading
