WELCOME TO DFW'S UNDISPUTED MOST EPIC BURGER RANKING PUBLICATION OF ALL TIME
BURGERS THAT JUST MET OUR BELLIES
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.
Mirador – Mirador Burger
WOW. Mind blown. Every bite of this burger was delightful. The “seeduction” bun from The Commissary down the street brought tons of flavor and works nicely with the sharp cheddar and cooked to order patty.
Mash’d – Cheeseburger
Poor bun, dry patty, and I dunno something else about how this burger sucks and we wouldn’t go back. Keep your burger butts moving.
Mockingbird Diner – The Mockingburger
Yall heard of Maple & Motor? This here is their next concept, which is why the burgers look like cousins, save the poppy seed bun. It’s delicious, obviously.
Up On Knox – 44 Farms Beef Burger
Extraordinary effort from Up on Knox. Huge pile of bacon on top of a 44 farms patty between a fluffy bun. Go get it if you’ve got some extra cash in your pocket. This place is fancy!
Al Biernat’s – Al’s Burger
If you find yourself at Al’s, pass on the burger in favor of the prime rib. The burger here seems forgotten and only on the menu as a formality.
White Rock Alehouse & Brewery – Alehouse Burger
Super crisp fresh veg, well balanced, and topped off with delicious pork belly. If you happen to drop in, ask for Brad, a dear friend of eat this beef, he’ll make sure you have a good time.
The Cedars Social – Cedars Social Burger
The Cedar’s burger was marginal at best. Maybe that’s why they changed up and serve tex-mex now! This place is not technically closed but they no longer serve a burger.
Haywire – TX Akaushi Beef Burger
Super fancy tasty classic burger here. We love the everything bun and the patty was cooked to order, but you’ll have to needle your way through Legacy West in order to get to this one. God speed!
Armoury D.E. – Damn Burger
The Damn Burger at Armoury D.E. is nothing short of fantastic. A short rib and brisket blended patty, Widmer cheddar, and LTO. Comes cooked to order on a fresh Challah bun. Give Peter a high five behind the bar for us!
Hopdoddy Burger Bar – Llano Poblano
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.
Highland Tap and Burger – Battle Royal
Extra crispy patties piled high with veg make this spot a winner. Pop in next door for an extra special treat.
