The list disappoints. These are the burgers to avoid. You don't want to waste cash and calories here. Take our word for it and hit a place on the top ten instead.
We thought the twelve burger tasted like a gourmet Sonic burger. Do not want.
Suffering from a hangover and consuming this burger is not a good combination. Mrs Baird's delivered the bun and the patty was like a warm piece of charcoal.
Barcadia's 'signature burger' features a green chili and cheese stuffed patty, but the stuffing ruins the burger. It was luke warm and had a bad impact on the overall taste. Stay away.
Well this is a first, veg pinned to the top of the bun? Neat. Other than that, nothing to see here.
A typical breastaurant burger, nothing special
The double patties are nice, but nothing else stands out. Boring and typical and Uptown fare.
Come here for the girl, but not for the burger (if you like waitress by day stripper by night, seriously). The patty was terribly small, and overall taste was painfully lacking.
C. Señor's succinct menu features an atypical burger on a tiny torta like bun with a beef and chorizo blend. They put a unique Cuban spin on the burger but it's very small and leaves you hungry for more. There are plenty of better options in Bishop Arts that we recommend you hit instead. Do stop in for their Yucca fries though as they're incredible.
Much disappoint. CBD fell off hard with their burger. This is a waxy leaning tower of american cheese mess between a bun that doesn't withstand the moisture. Every ingredient gets undercut by the cheese flavor. CBD: you are not Chris Madrid's.
Yes, Campisi's has an off-menu burger -- just ask for it! It's what you'd expect for a pizza joint.
We got this burger on a whim, as you can see it's bland and boring, however this place has one of the best cheesesteaks we've ever had the pleasure of putting in our face holes. Granted, we don't live in Philly but damn, this must be the next best thing.
A quick glance at the veg tells the tale here, but what can you expect from Uptown's notoriously bad burgers -- as the restaurants that come and go here favor booze over food. Anyway, patty was well done and the bun was chalky, but you know we ate all of it anyway. Bc burgers.
This location was once Thomas Average Beverage Company, then Boxwood Tap + Grill, now City Council Restaurant & Bar. Sadly, the third concept couldn't hold up to the former establishments. Beef not cooked to order, old veggies, and an overall boring build.
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
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.
Nice bun, but there was no getting around the overcooked patty as it's stuffed with a sort of cheese sauce. The rosemary potatoes are nice, but we prefer a side of fries to go with a tasty burger.
After returning to Fearing's the burger was lacking in quality so we took it down a few notches
Don't go out of your way with the burger @ Greenville Bar & Grill. The patty is fatty and flavorful but the rest of the build is below average. Fries aint shit neither.
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
We've been to the HHAGG in Vegas, but this is Dallas, and we must leave no patty unturned. If just got back from an episode of Naked and Afraid and haven't eaten for a month, HHAGG is for you. Absolutely massive portions, but for the burger this isn't a good thing. Saggy overcooked patties, “stuffed” which translates as a shit ton of additives that overtake the veggies and make it a glutinous mess. The bun they use can't support such savagery.
There was more bun than burger in every bite, patty was sadly way overcooked and dry, and the veg was weak af. Keep moving my friends.
Hickory doesn't come close to Blue Plate's (Rathbun's now extinct fare) burger. It's average at best, less expensive, but average.
House 34's burger is quickly forgettable. It may be a small step above a backyard BBQ burger with its shredded cheese, charcoal patty, and below average bun.
We were disappointed that Hudson House's burger wasn't on par with its sister restaurant, East Hampton Sandwich Co. A weak effort indeed.
JG's is an extremely popular place for lunch. Tasty, but nothing to report.
A backyard BBQ burger wrapped in paper with a smashed bun. Plenty of better options in the surrounding area.
Fluffy buns, decent burger. Kenny's has a quaint local atmosphere with a decent bar area. Beer is always a plus. It tastes like they add sugar to the fries, that's not cool.
The quality at Ketchup has gone way downhill after they opened in 2011
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.
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.
You may think we're kidding but there's beef in there somewhere. It lies under a few slices of smoked gouda and on top of 'chipotle ketchup' that resembles bbq sauce too closely. We won't be coming back to this cursed location (formerly Vagabond) until it undoubtedly changes concepts again.
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.
Come to Lakewood Landing for the Dallas dive bar experience, but sadly the food quality follows suit. Your choice of cheese on an 80/20 blend makes for a perfect alcohol sponge after multiple inexpensive drinks. If the Landing was our neighborhood bar, we'd imagine this burger being a standard cure to whatever ails us. However, for the eat this beef palate, 'The Burger' simply doesn't rise above the rest in the df dub.
NOTE: This burger is off-menu! The server didn't hesitate when I asked for it so you should be OK. We didn't taste much smoke flavor in the patty at all, however it was cooked to order. This burger is tasty, but we can't justify a reason that tempts us to return. We recommend checking out Liberty Burger next door instead. The burnt ends here though -- nommzzzzzzzz.
Brian C. Luscher, chef and co-owner from The Grape, is better than this. The best part about the Uncle Herky is its seeded pain au lait bun. The two slim wagyu patties were overcooked and lost their flavor and we like vegetables on our burgers by default. Maybe they'll change up in the future.
Nothing to say about this one except, well, fail.
It's about time we made it to this 40 year old establishment, but it'll be the last. The word sad comes to mind when remembering Melio's flattened buns, shredded cheese, and obviously frozen patty adorned with sketchy grill marks. Please head across the street to Rapscallion.
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
When we learned John Tesar joined Oak as executive chef we had to see about the burger. The Oak Burger comes on an English muffin as expected. Quality patty and veggies make for a tasty burger indeed. We did fell that the muff was over-buttered though. Don't worry John, we'll look the other way and enjoy the beef.
The Longhorn @ Papi's is very messy and the dry bun doesn't compliment the burger's integrity at all. If you're in The Colony and you want a burger but you don't want fast food - hit up the paps.
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.
This beef was dry and overwhelming with garlic flavor without the veg listed on the menu. You're in Plano already, take your ass to Royal down the street.
Overcooked patty, dry bun, uncooked bacon and lack of attention to detail make for an unfortunate experience at Press Box Grill.
We feel like Rugby House is trying too hard with this one. Creative, but too much went into the patty. The fries were nice and crispy though.
The C.A.B Burger entices with the description of a cabernet smothered local Akaushi patty but horrifies when the reality of a balsamic soaked sloppy joe hit the table. The Akaushi patty may have been partially to blame -- simply crumbled into an unfortunate slather. The patty itself was flavorless. The tomato looked embarrassed to be there and the caramelized onion just seemed like a last ditch effort to balance out the overpowering awfulness of that damn cheap wine it seemed like some kitchen noob accidentally spilled all over this burger. The "everything bun" from Esmerelda's French bakery in Dallas was lovely and did not deserve to go down with this wine-sunken ship.
In a world where "burgers are designed," Slater's 50/50 touts themselves a pork-focused burger shop as they crank out 50% beef and 50% bacon patties. We tried their original (which the server claimed put them on the map) but we feel it's a map of shame, terrible and embarrassing shame. The patty had this pale sponge like texture and it was damn near revolting. If you ever decide to step into this joint, be sure to avoid the 50/50 blend. Like, ew.
Smashburger's effort is visually appealing, but lacking in taste, structural integrity, and bun. Their fries however are excellent. We like how they get their sweet potato fries from somebody other than the primary DFW distributor.
It looks pretty but looks can be deceiving. A disproportionate excuse for a pub burger that lacks quality can be found here.
A good friend of eat this beef recommended this burger joint located in the middle of downtown Dallas. We gave it the old college try but this burger didn't find its place in the top ten. A shame because it had religion on its side.
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.
Come to Sundown at sunset for their incredible rooftop patio but not for the food. The brisket tasted like burnt wood chips and it overpowered any flavor from the patty. Also they didn't have any plates or silverware anywhere in the restaurant, weird.
Overcooked frozen patty, lame bun and veggies, le fail.
The Lot has a nice patio going for them and a decent beer selection, but that's about it. We won't be coming back hungry at any point in time
The patty was overcooked and had too much char on the surface, weak veggies as well. The Nodding Donkey does however have the best fried pickles we've ever had!
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!
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.
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.
Wayward's burger salad introduces too many elements into the humble hamburger. The salad which sits on a delicate crumbly patty includes mandolin carrot among other veggies which turned us off. Don't let Wayward's burger dissuade you from going as everything else we sampled was excellent.
Sadly, the Standard Burger was well below what we at ETB would even consider acceptable let alone standard setting in any way. How ya even gonna call it a standard burger when your LTO is just a limp pile of yesterday's shredded L? Maybe they thought they were in the clear because they did put some fat-cut bread and butter pickles on top. Nope! The obtrusively sweet flavor of those misplaced pickles took front and center over whatever that "special sauce" was supposed to be.
A very weak pub burger at Work. Cool concept though
We knew there was something wrong with ordering a burger from a strictly brunch place, but we did it anyway, because burgers. The first thing you taste is an off-putting burnt pretzel flavor from the bun, followed by soggy veg and a Sysco patty. Just don't.
The customization concept is nice, but no combination of ingredients is a winning effort here. The bun didn't taste homemade, the beef was bland, and the fries had so much salt they were inedible.
