Village Burger Bar opened its fourth location on Inwood in north Dallas just recently, and I stopped in yesterday for a look – and a taste. I had been to the location in West Village numerous times and always appreciated the skinny fries and what Jules Winnfiled would call a “tasty burger”. But there is so much more to Village than burgers, and it emanates from the talented hands of its chef-owner Susan Matta. While husband Mike Matta is tops when it comes to brand development, it is Susan that makes her way around the kitchens creating new ideas and flavors.
The Matta duo opened their first location in West Village back in 2005. Susan Matta explains, “Our business model is simple. I am the chef/co-owner and responsible for the menu development along with all recipes. I acquired my passion for food and cooking from my mother and grandmother. Mike is the co-owner/business and brand developer. In his spare time he is also a commercial pilot.” Together they make a great team that allows each of them to express their individual creativity and work to bring their customers the best product possible.

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
