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.
You'll find typical pub burgers @ the donkey. The fried jalapenos were an interesting addition but nothing pulling us to return for another burger here.
Kin Kin puts a spin on the traditional burger with a sticky rice bun around two Angus patties. They add a few peppers, lettuce and tomato to finish it off. The burger ends up falling apart in your hands and becomes a knife and fork ordeal. If you're looking for something creative but off the beaten path - do it.
Pints & Quarts has a decent offering which begs a bit of fine tuning. The shaved onion and butter lettuce make this burger very enjoyable. They have a wide range of burger builds to satisfy every taste. We'll try the fried green tomato burger next!
The only burger component worth mentioning is the Bistro Burger's flaky and cooked to order patty. Nothing else took us to a burger dreamland that we long for on a daily basis. Come to Paul Martin's for the atmosphere and steak but not the burger.
When we heard the Wizards that brought us Boulevardier were opening a new shop, we had to check it out post haste. Rapscallion's bun appears to be made in house because it's like nothing we've tasted before. The three cheese pimento serving as a bed for thick bacon along with the high quality vegetables knocked it out of the park.1
To be honest everything else we tried at TSP was fantastic except the burger. The double patties were dry, tragically flavorless, and not cooked to order. Few burgers benefit from 86ing lettuce tomato and onion but this isn't one of them. We'll be back for the Chicken Biscuit though!
It took us a while to get here, but we made it. P+P's effort shines in all aspects of burger building. A perfect char provides a crunchiness to every bite, the sixteen hour braised short rib on top the hand cut Kobe is divine. They only serve this burger for lunch, but please put it on your short list.
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.
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.
