Eat This Beef, brah

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.


Hopdoddy Burger Bar - Goodnight / Good Cause

6030 Luther Ln #100, Dallas, TX 75225Street View

Hopdoddy Burger Bar's Goodnight / Good Cause

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.

Remedy - Cheeseburger

2010 Greenville Ave, Dallas, TX 75206Street View

Remedy's Cheeseburger

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.

Fat Rabbit - Fat Rabbit Burger

2533 McKinney Ave, Dallas, TX 75201Street View

Fat Rabbit's Fat Rabbit Burger

Not much to say about Fat Rabbit's effort except that it's boring. The grind sounds good in theory but disappoints in execution. 50% short rib and 50% brisket? I guess. We will say the BBQ rub on the fries is delightful.

Greenville Bar & Grill - GbG Burger

2817 Greenville Avenue, Dallas, TX 75206Street View

Greenville Bar & Grill's GbG Burger

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.

Public School 214 - The Huntsman

3700 McKinney Avenue, #148, Dallas, TX 75204Street View

Public School 214's The Huntsman

Public School comes to Dallas from the left coast. The Huntsman has great LTO, sits on a flaky homemade bun, and the patty was cooked to order. Delicious. Also the school themed d├ęcor is fun and omnipresent.

Vernons Gastropub - Mo Burger

5290 Beltline Rd Ste 142, Dallas, TX 75254Street View

Vernons Gastropub's Mo Burger

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 Ice House - Chaca Oaxaca

1926 Market Center Blvd., Dallas, TX 75207Street View

Rodeo Goat Ice House's Chaca Oaxaca

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! - Fresno Fig Burger

3700 McKinney Ave #126, Dallas, TX 75204Street View

Eureka!'s Fresno Fig Burger

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.

Henry's Majestic - Henry's Marrow Spiked Burger

4900 McKinney Ave, Dallas, TX 75205Street View

Henry's Majestic's Henry's Marrow Spiked Burger

We ordered Henry's burger rare but it was too well done to taste any 'Akaushi' beef flavor. The bun isn't strong enough for an egg on top so we recommend leaving it out of this build.

Clark Food & Wine Co. - Grilled Burger

1920 Greenville Ave, Dallas, TX 75206Street View

Clark Food & Wine Co.'s Grilled Burger

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 - Grass-Fed Burger

8315 Westchester Dr, Dallas, TX 75225Street View

LYFE Kitchen's Grass-Fed Burger

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.

Origin Kitchen + Bar - Grass Fed Burger

4438 McKinney Ave #150, Dallas, TX 75225Street View

Origin Kitchen + Bar's Grass Fed Burger

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.

Vagabond - Build Your Burger

3619 Greenville Ave, Dallas, TX 75206Street View

Vagabond's Build Your Burger

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.

The Local Oak - TLO Burger

409 N. Zang Blvd, Dallas, TX 75208Street View

The Local Oak's TLO Burger

We were not impressed by the burger here. The patty was flavorless and the veggies were sub-par

HG Sply Co. - 80/20 Burger

2008 Greenville Ave, Dallas, TX 75206Street View

HG Sply Co.'s 80/20 Burger

The multi-grain was like thick cake, the bacon jam didn't have much bacon flavor and the lettuce and tomato were small and buried under the mess

So & So's - Burger

3309 McKinney Ave, Dallas, TX 75206Street View

So & So's's Burger

It looks pretty but looks can be deceiving. A disproportionate excuse for a pub burger that lacks quality can be found here.

Dish - Dish Burger

4123 Cedar Springs Rd, Dallas, TX 75219Street View

Dish's Dish Burger

Dish is trying hard for a fancy upscale burger but this one doesn't make the cut. The ingredients sounds appetizing but the burger doesn't follow through as both the bun and meats were dry and unsatisfying

Cock & Bull - Bull Burger

6333 E. Mockingbird Lane, Dallas, TX 75214Street View

Cock & Bull's Bull Burger

Great tasting dive bar burger at Cock & Bull. The Gruyere cheese and soft bun will keep us coming back.

Nova - Angus Brisket Burger

1417 W Davis St., Dallas, TX 75208Street View

Nova's Angus Brisket Burger

The best part about this burger is the grind, but everything else is lacking - especially veggies

The Hay Merchant - Cease And Desist Burger

1100 Westheimer Road, Houston, TX 77006Street View

The Hay Merchant's Cease And Desist Burger

Hit Shady's if you're looking for a super greasy burger. They use a ton of fat in their grind and it falls apart upon slaying, but other than that we'd return
