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

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

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
