Burger of the Day: Half Pound Burger at Lee Harvey’s

leeharvey2by Steven Doyle

There is a place, a hidden place, where you can find cold beer, great burgers and incredible live music. This is the place many know as Lee Harvey’s. In its own compound surrounded by barbed wire and a double gate to prevent happy pets from either getting in, or escaping, you will find nothing but great camaraderie and smiles at this hot spot in the Cedars area of Dallas.

The food at Lee Harvey’s is nothing short of splendid, and is made out of a kitchen  much smaller than your own at home. The food comes out quickly and perfect every time for a place with such adversity as this small workspace. But that is the only thing small about the bar. The burgers are enormous, clocking in at a half pound and topped with as many ingredients as you might care to savor. The meat is juicy and hand formed, and even though the bun is sturdy the juices make fast play with your ability to manage this monster.   Continue reading

Redneck Bottle Service At Truck Yard For Limited Time

Watermelonby Steven Doyle

Our favorite adult playground is at it again, this time with giant watermelons and zero shame. The same spot off Greenville Avenue who makes the best cheesesteaks in Dallas is offering up a fun option for some end of summer love. Behold: the Redneck Bottle Service. When I first saw the headline in my email inbox I was thinking 40’s of Schlitz. No, this is so much better.

On August 18-19 all day until they run out, the Truck Yard is offering “Redneck Bottle Service.” Basically, they’re tapping whole watermelons with a pour spout and loading them up with Espolon tequila and orange liqueur. Combine that with the watermelon juice, and you’ve got a fruit keg full of electrolytes. And tequila.  Continue reading
