We have compiled what we think are the better burs in Dallas. There is a list for chef burgers and FW burgers listed at the bottom of the article today. So many burgers were consumed that we decided to break the list apart in a few categories to keep it all fair.
This said, let us begin in no particular order, except for the first burger which we consider our favorite in the Dallas area.
Is there a thing called “pie season”? I know there is a Pie Council, possibly in the same vein as Garrison Keillor’s “Catsup Advisory Board” or his “American Duct Tape Council”. Pie Season to me would encompass most of the calendar not already loaded up with pie goodness such as National Pi Day, or Pie Day. There is also “Eat a Pie Day – December 1”, “Raspberry Cream Pie Day – August 1”, “National Cherry Pie Day – February 1” and a litany of other super cool pie days. Continue reading →
With five locations throughout DFW, Liberty Burger puts a grown-up spin on the American diner.

As we fly through this week dining on fried beef, black eyed peas and cornbread we are generally offered a sweet ending in the form of a slice of pie.

Tony Street owns YO Ranch, and also claims the chef title. There he is cranking out hundreds of covers each night, many who are tourists in search of more Texas-style cuisine with true atmosphere. The building is loaded with memorabilia from the YO Ranch in the Texas Hill Country, including photos of the family to an actual windmill snagged from the sprawling ranch. Most would be content to own and operate a successful operation like YO, but Tony is from the Street family where gravy courses through each of the members veins. Enter Liberty Chicken, the latest on the drawing board from the Street family. This new concept will be operated by Tony, his uncle and restaurant veteran Gene Street, and Mariel Street who operates Liberty Burger. Continue reading →
As the Lakewood community continues its growth a few new and familiar Dallas area restaurants have staked claim on some highly visible real estate. Interesting enough the new restaurants are being careful to keep things interesting enough for the neighborhood, and even giving the new spots a warm enough feel that will give an impression that the restaurants have always belonged to their new digs.
There are two particular burger outlets that will give pause to the local fan. Liberty Burger should be open very soon and co-owner Mariel Street is staying clear of any semblance of being a chain. Even though there are currently only two of the burger restaurants, we know there are plenty on the way including the Dallas Farmers Market. Continue reading →
