Eat This Beef, yo

Hi! Thanks for stopping by. 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.


Henry's Majestic - Henry's Marrow Spiked Burger

4900 McKinney Ave, Dallas, TX 75205

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. Another average gastro pub burger to fill the Dallas burger scene.

Clark Food & Wine Co. - Grilled Burger

1920 Greenville Ave, Dallas, TX 75206

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 75225

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 75225

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 75206

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 75208

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 75206

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 75206

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 75219

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 75214

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 75208

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 77006

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

True Food Kitchen - Grass Fed Bison Burger

8383 Preston Center Plaza, Dallas, TX 75225

True Food Kitchen's Grass Fed Bison Burger

This is the best "healthy buger" we've had to date but healthy comes at a price: $16. No fries on the menu either.

Mexican Sugar - Hamburguesa

7501 Lone Star Dr., Plano, TX 75024

Mexican Sugar's Hamburguesa

Mexican Sugar is Whiskey Cake's sister restaurant and it does not disappoint. Their house ground patty and oaxaca cheese set it apart from the rest and give it a Spanish flavor

Boxwood Tap + Grill - The Triple B AKA Bourbon Bacon Burger

2901 Thomas Ave., Dallas, TX 75204

Boxwood Tap + Grill's The Triple B AKA Bourbon Bacon Burger

Boxwood's effort is tasty indeed, but not much bourbon flavor to be had. We recommend this if you're near Uptown

Maple & Motor - Cheeseburger

4810 Maple Ave, Dallas, TX 75219

Maple & Motor's Cheeseburger

Uber toasty bun, crispy patty, and fresh vegetables deliver an all around classic. The place is small and usually packed, but they are equipped with party seating magicians. You'll always get a seat no matter how long the line is.

Grub Burger Bar - Guacapotle

4925 Greenville Ave., Dallas, TX 75206

Grub Burger Bar's Guacapotle

Can't think of anything special as this burger feels plain and simple, keep moving

Nick & Sam's Grill - The NSG Burger

2816 Fairmount Street, Dallas, TX 75201

Nick & Sam's Grill's The NSG Burger

Nick and Sam's proper is one of my favorite places to go for a steak, but their grill doesn't do a good job making a burger. It's average and boring to the taste buds

Blue Plate Kitchen - Tenderloin Brisket Burger

6130 Luther Ln., Dallas, TX 75225

Blue Plate Kitchen's Tenderloin Brisket Burger

BPK's effort is delicious and the brie cheese makes it interesting

Dee Lincoln Steak & Burger Bar - Lamb Burger

2626 Howell St., Dallas, TX 75204

Dee Lincoln Steak & Burger Bar's Lamb Burger

We know, we know it's not beef, but it's still red divine fatty meat. Picked onions and feta give this burger a unique flavor on top the lamb and the combination is nothing short of mind blowing
