WELCOME TO DFW'S UNDISPUTED MOST EPIC BURGER RANKING PUBLICATION OF ALL TIME
BURGERS THAT JUST MET OUR BELLIES
Maple Landing – 737 Burger
A child of State + Allen, Maple Landing opened up next to its sibling, Social Pies. The service is very friendly here and the burger is the best you’ll find on Maple Ave. It’s named after the now infamous Boeing airplane because ML is near Love Field.
Ross & Hall Beer Garten + Kitchen – R&H Style
Nothing to see here. Dull veg, dry patty, plastic cheese. Nah brah.
Alamo Club – Bacon Cheddar Burger
Former Town Hearth chef Austin Rodgers spawned this casual neighborhood spot. The burger is accompanied by dressed arugula which brings a refreshing bite. We feel there are better burgers to be had in lower Greenville, so expand your options if you’re looking to beef.
SkinnyFATS – Cherry Popper
Healthy things on the left side of the menu, unhealthy things on the right. Obviously we came for the right. The spicy slaw and pepper marmalade kicks this burger up a notch. The side salad had some fried chick peas in it, clever! We’re totes skinny fat now.
Zoli’s NY Pizza – O.D. Burger
Yes you seent it right, a pizza joint with a burger. The O.D. Burger, which stands for the Obligatory Dallas Burger, is spectacular. It’s the chef’s play on a Big Mac: two beef patties, American cheese, horseradish pickles and burger sauce. It’s a beautiful and nostalgic experience.
The Capital Grille – The Grille’s Signature Cheeseburger
This burger is tasty, but is it worth $18? We think there are comparable options in the area that are 1/3 of the price. I know, we usually don’t care about price but cot damn, for $18 the beef should be melting in your mouth and massaging our taste buds with a happy ending. The veg is top notch though, that we like.
Off-Site Kitchen – Murph-Style
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? Get you some ASAP.
The Royale Magnificent Burgers – The American Treasure
She’s a looker, but she comes with a price: you must unhinge your jaw to fit this behemoth into your mouth, and once you do it’ll soon crumble into a complete (albeit tasty) mess. The quality of their burgers has gone downhill since we last visited in 2016. I guess they lost their polished flair.
Wimpy’s Hamburgers – Double Cheese Burger
A delicious, inexpensive, crispy, salty burger that’ll fill you with nostalgia and get you through the day. The tomatoes couldn’t be less red but what do you expect for a $4.00 double cheeseburger? NOTE: this is a cash only joint!
Sky Rocket Burger – Double Cheese Burger
Sky Rocket’s menu only offers burgers and fries, which they do quite well. A mix of chuck and brisket is ground in house before the patties are griddled on a flat-top, seasoned with salt and pepper, and sandwiched inside a fluffy buttered sesame seed bun. The special sauce is exactly what it should be: mayo based with a splash of mustard and ketchup.
Saltgrass Steak House – Brisket Burger
I mean it’s Saltgrass, what do you expect? We expected the “brisket burger” to have brisket blended into the patty instead of plopped on top. The excessive sugar in the onions blew out any beef flavor anyway.
Tupelo Honey Cafe – Farm Fresh Burger
This national Carolona-inspired chain is pretty fancy, but burgers aren’t their forte. No ketchup/mayo/mustard served with the burger? But why so dry? Make sure to specify the temperature during your order because Tupelo cooks on the rare side of things.
Katy Trail Ice House – Our 1/2lb Cheeseburger
Does wrapping a burger in paper make it taste better? It does in this case. You won’t go wrong with any of KTIH’s burgers, they go down easy with a schooner of beer.
Merchant House – Straight-Up Burger
Very fancy standard burger with a brittle cooked to order patty. The house made pickles are delicious and some of the best pickles we’ve had on a burger.
Bulla Gastrobar – ‘Bulla’ Burger
Heavy smoke flavor gives this one a good bite. Piquillo peppers and tetila cheese are two unqie ingredients that aids its flavor.
Steam Theory Brewing Company – Half Pound Hamburger
The aged white cheddar and house pickles make this burger quite enjoyable. Patty was cooked to order and weighs in appropriately. Pair the burger with a house brewed ale to wet your whistle.
Bullion – Bullion Burger
When we add a burger to the top ten it’s because we’ve tasted nothing like it before in the scene. The au jus flavor from the patty, onion jam, and emmental cheese sent our taste buds to the moon. Each ingredient fits perfectly into the whole. It’s expensive ($16) but bovine bliss is priceless.
Cedar & Vine – C&V Burger
Big grill flavor at C&V. Looks like they took a torch to the cheese and it tastes like there was worcestershire in the special sauce (which is usually a mix of mayo ketchup and mustard). We’d come back.
Earls Kitchen + Bar – Bigger Better Burger
A Creekstone Farms black angus beef patty on a brioche bun. It had a pretty strong mustard flavor by default so be weary of that. Super swanky place and delicious food!
Braindead Brewing – “The Parlor” Patty Melt
Well we never made it to The Parlor to try their patty melt, but unfortunately it’s closed. The chef hopped across the street To Braindead to serve it there. We found it dry, overcooked, and all we tasted was beef butter and bread. If that’s your thing, check it out by all means, at least for the rotating beer tap.
