Is the New Meridian Burger Tops in its Class?

What do you get when you combine incredible ingredients such as ground Rosewood Wagyu beef, gruyere cheese, maitake aioli, a shallot marmalade, Malagueta pickles all enveloped in a sourdough potato roll? It’s the $17 X-Tudo Burger at Meridian.

One bite sold us on the chef-driven burger of maddening deliciousness, and immediately we knew this was now the top one or two burgers in Dallas. Who has the definitive first place? Hard to tell. Go try this burger during Happy Hour where they are only making ten a day for a trial run and let us know your thoughts.
