Most likely you have had their burger. They landed on our mega burger list we ran last year, and have multiple locations across the city. Village Burger Bar makes a quality burger, along with some of the better fries around. Now owners Mike and Susan Matta are  announcing their fourth location will open Tuesday, October 22nd in North Dallas.  The new location is across the street from Jesuit College Preparatory School of Dallas – at 12300 Inwood Road.

Co-owner, Mike Matta says, “ We sought to create a neighborhood burger-centered concept that’s offerings, environment, staff and price point made it appeal to a larger audience.  Our panini sandwiches, salads and starters were not an afterthought.  When we opened in The West Village, we knew that many of the tenants and center employees would be visiting multiple times per week.  With that in mind we were careful to craft a menu that allowed them to enjoy a unique experience each visit.  We have guests that come in multiple times per week because of the variety of menu items we offer.”     Continue reading

If you missed the craveRADIO broadcast this past Sunday you missed a lot. In studio this week we enjoyed all the interesting stories Gene and Julie Gates shared about opening their restaurant Battuto Italian Kitchen in North Dallas.  Gene also shared his history of working, managing and owning restaurants in his past, before Battuto and before their radio history.

The pair of restaurant owners also discussed their opening chef Gustavo, and all the work that went into the opening menu. They have since hired super chef Joel Harloff who has a beautiful history working with Italian and other cuisines. Harloff is working on a new lunch menu and sends out daily specials that we hear are terrific.    Continue reading
