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.
We can't find a justifiable reason to eat this burger again. We liked the veggies but everything else was lackluster, unfortunately. Find something else to gorge on in the Dallas Galleria.
UPDATE: When we heard OSK killed their original location in favor of Trinity Groves, we had to check it out, and holy hell it's just the same as it ever was. Their diner like burgers have an excellent char and flavor you can't miss. Off-Site Kitchen is part of the Neighborhood Services family so what's not to love?
The chef isn't kidding when he claims he 'provides the best beef I can get.' The patty was very delicate and juicy. We love how the menu reads 'please don't make me cook it well done' as well. I expected more from the bun at a pastry shop, but overall this burger is fantastic.
Oh John, this the most uninspiring and boring burger we've had of yours to date. The pimento cheese is lost in the mix and the bun is from the grocery store down the street. You're better than this! Also head to Knife on payday as the food is not cheap, at all. We won't be heading back to Knife anytime soon.
Start offers one of the healthiest fast food burgers around what with its low fat grass-fed beef, avocado, and cakelike wheat bun. At eat this beef we like our burgers fatty greasy and all American. If you're looking for something on the healthy side, eat a salad.
Hands down without a doubt the best burger in Dallas (to date). It's massive, cheap, well seasoned, and insanely delicious. But there's a caveat, no seating! Enjoy this beef behemoth with your friends at the park down the way. Be sure to bring a six pack and plenty of shop towels to soak up the glorious mess. NOTE: Updated Pics!
Burger Time Machine is a dive burger if you will, but don't be fooled by its well-worn exterior as their burgers are giant and delicious. Expect all sorts of diverse toppings - especially on their rotating chalk board specialty menu. Definitely some must have beef if you're in the Denton area.
Le Taco Cantina was quickly resurrected from Scotch and Sausage's fleeting ashes and has evolved to a casual dining experiance. Le Torta is built with melted swiss on short rib patty topped with carnitas, avocado, iceberg lettuce, and crema. Their bun had trouble supporting the grind and it gets messy, but it's completely satiating. We'll give it another shot soon.
We drove to Austin just for the world renowned ShackBurger. Just kidding! We were on vacation. There'll be a line at this place but who gives af. You don't have to go all the way to New York do you? Shake Shack offers burgers that are step above your typical fast food burger. Tasty, but we'd recommend saving cash and time in line by going to P. Terry's or Dan's or the like.
The American Dream fulfills the average Americans' gluttony at its best - a bacon cheddar burger between two grilled cheese sandwiches. Be advised: you should tackle this beefy barbarian with an empty stomach or prepare to be defeated. Order it from one of the friendliest bartenders in Dallas and you will not be disappointed.
C. Señor's succinct menu features an atypical burger on a tiny torta like bun with a beef and chorizo blend. They put a unique Cuban spin on the burger but it's very small and leaves you hungry for more. There are plenty of better options in Bishop Arts that we recommend you hit instead. Do stop in for their Yucca fries though as they're incredible.
N&R's Hangover Burger took us by surprise. It's well balanced and most importantly the egg was fried to perfection accompanied with a bun that'll support it. The double patties are charred to the max which opens up the flavor flood gates. It's the best farm burger we've had to date. We'll be back for their Signature Burger soon.
The Notorious P.I.G. has serious potential, but the patty was ruined by way too much sodium. It was cooked to order and the pimento cheese was a pleasant surprise. The bun was soft and the duck fat delivered an extra flavor punch. We'll go back, but if it's too salty next time we'll push it over to the fail page. PS: we recommend finding a table outside because it's loud af indoors.
Braindead constructs their burger well. A bun that will withstand their fatty grind and the veggies on the bottom to prevent bun soakage. Black angus brisket, duroc pork bacon, and Texas wagyu top sirloin is an excellent mix. We loved this burger, but there was something unbalanced about it that didn't push it over the top. We'll return again to see if it's evolved over time.
When we learned John Tesar joined Oak as executive chef we had to see about the burger. The Oak Burger comes on an English muffin as expected. Quality patty and veggies make for a tasty burger indeed. We did fell that the muff was over-buttered though. Don't worry John, we'll look the other way and enjoy the beef.
We were blown away by Dugg Burger. A true diamond in the ruff. Everything about Dugg is unique. They use a Village bakery bun that's been hollowed out to accompany a mix of cherry tomatoes and fine greens that's like a salad to go with your beef. The patty is thin but action packed. They also offer a variety of choice toppings to satiate your taste.
Harvey cooks up a classic diner burger. If you order the half pound (like we did) prepare for a mountain of meat. Their patty had a nice char but was a bit overdone. The spiral cut spuds were a nice deviation from the norm.
