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 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.
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.
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 décor is fun and omnipresent.
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.
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'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.
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 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
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
The best part about this burger is the grind, but everything else is lacking - especially veggies
