Hi! Thanks for stopping by. Eat this beef has been searching for the best burgers in Dallas, TX for six years and our life long quest continues to this day. We check out new places almost every week so drop in again as the top ten is ever-evolving. ETB is burger centric in that we're not concerned with price, atmosphere, service, etc. It's all about the burger. We will however comment on the aforementioned if the restaurant delivers above and beyond. We prefer a "best of the best" short list as opposed to a lengthy list of options coupled with a complicated ranking system. Less is more.
A fantastic counter burger at Épicerie. Super fresh and crisp veggies coupled with a cooked to order patty. The fries were nice as well.
The HMF (has more flavor) incorporates house made Thousand Island dressing that blows Jake's Special out of the water. It packs a punch with its ghost pepper cheese and the bun is locally baked and fully supports the patty. Would eat again 10/10.
The Longhorn @ Papi's is very messy and the dry bun doesn't compliment the burger's integrity at all. If you're in The Colony and you want a burger but you don't want fast food - hit up the paps.
Joey's burger begs you to focus on its meat and cheese. Two patties with a 50/50 angus brisket blend, microplaned shallots and American cheese between a pain de mie bun. Simple build but complex flavor yields a delightful experience at Scotch & Sausage.
Brian C. Luscher, chef and co-owner from The Grape, is better than this. The best part about the Uncle Herky is its seeded pain au lait bun. The two slim wagyu patties were overcooked and lost their flavor and we like vegetables on our burgers by default. Maybe they'll change up in the future.
We weren't aware that the burger here is only served on Tuesdays. Lame, however the sliders were surprisingly good. Custom little buns and a little salty tasty patty. Not sure if we can make it out during a weekday but we'll keep it in mind. PS: ask your bar tender about Stone Cold ET.
The burger here is very filling with a half-pound patty topped with pork belly. The belly had a brisket like texture and was pretty tough but it carried a nice flavor. The egg made this burger super messy but we can tolerate that.
We visited Hopdoddy in Austin circa 2011 before it arrived in Dallas and I must say the consistency between cities is on point, however their baked in-house buns cannot support the amount of fat in the grind so you end up with a wet sloppy albeit delicious mess. Also Hopdoddy is in the middle of Yuppie heaven. Enjoy that.
Danyele McPherson left The Grape and is now running the kitchen at Remedy so we had high expectations going in; and they were met. The burger here is simple but profound. Kansas City Kobe beef between a griddled challah bun. Would eat again 10/10.
Don't go out of your way with the burger @ Greenville Bar & Grill. The patty is fatty and flavorful but the rest of the build is below average. Fries aint shit neither.
We would not like Mo of this burger. It sounds good in theory but we don't know if we sat down for thanksgiving dinner or french onion soup. The patty flavor was drowned by the gravy and the bun didn't make any waves either. And let's be honest Vernon's is in Addison.
Rodeo Goat blew us away with their chorizo based burger. They complete this breakfast burger breakthrough with avocado, pico, queso, tabasco, and a fried egg. Lovely. Being a burger only joint they sure do offer a wide array of specialty builds. BONUS: the patio is giant, inviting, and scenic.
Eureka! is a trendy craft brew touting California based burger chain. The Fresno Fig burger's marmalade and goat cheese were subtly integrated without overpowering the flavor. Cooked to order, a shit load of arugula, and a soft fluffy egg based bun.
Clark's burger is on point with the amount of time on the grill, the sloppy sauce is super tasty, and the pickled veggies give it a different spin on flavor. Love this burger and they built a lovely spot in lower Greenville.
LYFE Kitchen is what you'd expect from a healthy burger. If you're calorie watching, you might as well get a salad instead. This burger had a dry cake-like bun, a small hockey puck patty, and (of course) delicious veggies. Also, LYFE stands for Love Your Food Everyday. Everyday is an adjective that means commonplace, ordinary, or normal.
Origins puts together a damn good farm burger. It comes loaded with top notch ingredients with the white cheddar standing out the most. The sweet potato fries are sub-par but the burger is worth a visit alone.
We can't say anything special about the burgers at Vagabond. The only piece that was appealing was the challah bun. The patty and its accompaniments were average at best. If you're looking for a nice bar atmosphere this is the place.
