Eat This Beef, brah

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.

12 Burgers - 12 Burger

6006 Belt Line Rd, Dallas, TX 75254Street View

12 Burgers's 12 Burger

We thought the twelve burger tasted like a gourmet Sonic burger. Do not want.

303 Grill - Cuban Burger

303 W Davis St, Dallas, TX 75208Street View

303 Grill's Cuban Burger

303's effort is tasty but easily forgettable. We couldn't find any compelling reason to spark our interest into returning. Pork and ham simply doesn't jive well on an overcooked burger.

3rd Base - The Hangover

2390 Parkwood Blvd, Frisco, TX 75034Street View

3rd Base's The Hangover

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.

Angela's Cafe - Sourdough Bacon & Cheddar Burger

7979 Inwood Rd, Dallas, TX 75209Street View

Angela's Cafe's Sourdough Bacon & Cheddar Burger

No. Angela needs to stick to what she's good at: breakfast diner fare.

Barcadia - Barcadia Burger

1917 N Henderson Ave, Dallas, TX 75206Street View

Barcadia's Barcadia Burger

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.

Big Daddy's Convenience Store - Cheeseburger

4121 Colonial Ave, Dallas, TX 75215Street View

Big Daddy's Convenience Store's Cheeseburger

Excellent fried chicken salad here, but not worth getting anything else @ Big Daddy's

Blatt Beer & Table - Backyard Burger

7859 Walnut Hill Ln, Dallas, TX 75230Street View

Blatt Beer & Table's Backyard Burger

Well this is a first, veg pinned to the top of the bun? Neat. Other than that, nothing to see here.

Bowen House - Hamburger La Pasha

2614 Boll St, Dallas, TX 75204Street View

Bowen House's Hamburger La Pasha

The double patties are nice, but nothing else stands out. Boring and typical and Uptown fare.

Buffalo Bluez - All-American Burger

4200 Legacy Dr, Plano, TX 75024Street View

Buffalo Bluez's All-American Burger

A dry patty and bun with a waxy stiff slice of cheddar won't beckon us back to Buffalo Bluez.

Burger Girl - Single Patty Burger

4444 McKinney Ave, Dallas, TX 75205Street View

Burger Girl's Single Patty Burger

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.

Burger Spot - Cali Burger

9090 Skillman St, Dallas, TX 75243Street View

Burger Spot's Cali Burger

This place is brand new so we had to give it some love. A well rounded burger here, but a bit on the small side. Nothing jumps out at us that justifies a return trip.

C. Señor - Cuban Burger

330 W Davis St, Dallas, TX 75208Street View

C. Señor's Cuban Burger

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.

CBD Provisions - Double Cheeseburger

1530 Main St, Dallas, TX 75201Street View

CBD Provisions's Double Cheeseburger

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.

Campisi's - Cheeseburger

5610 E Mockingbird Ln, Dallas, TX 75206Street View

Campisi's's Cheeseburger

Yes, Campisi's has an off-menu burger -- just ask for it! It's what you'd expect for a pizza joint.

Capitol Pub - The Capitol Burger

2401 North Henderson Avenue, Dallas, Texas 75206Street View

Capitol Pub's The Capitol Burger

Capitol Pub wins the worst burger in DFW to date. Their egregious effort was absolutely repulsive. It wasn't cooked to order, excluded vegetables, and sat on a tasteless bun from a commercial bakery.

Cheesesteak House - Cheeseburger

2015 W Davis St, Dallas, TX 75208Street View

Cheesesteak House's Cheeseburger

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.

Chelsea Corner - Chelsea Backyard Burger

4830 McKinney Ave, Dallas, TX 75205Street View

Chelsea Corner's Chelsea Backyard Burger

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.

City Council Restaurant & Bar - Stacked Burger

2901 Thomas Ave, Dallas, TX 75204Street View

City Council Restaurant & Bar's Stacked Burger

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.

Company Cafe - The Company Burger

2104 Greenville Avenue, Dallas, TX 75206Street View

Company Cafe's The Company Burger

Our greatest fears have been met: blue cheese overpowering the flavor of a burger. The patty and bun were dry and unsatisfying. Also, needs more greens please.

Dish - Dish Burger

4123 Cedar Springs Rd, Dallas, TX 75219Street View

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

Drunken Donkey Bar and Grill - Spirit of a Hero Burger

4897 Highway 121, The Colony, TX 75056Street View

Drunken Donkey Bar and Grill's Spirit of a Hero Burger

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.

Farnatchi Gourmet Oven - Farnatchi Burger

3001 Knox Street, Dallas, TX 75205Street View

Farnatchi Gourmet Oven's Farnatchi Burger

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.

Fat Rabbit - Fat Rabbit Burger

2533 McKinney Ave, Dallas, TX 75201Street View

Fat Rabbit's Fat Rabbit Burger

Not much to say about Fat Rabbit's effort except that it's boring. The grind sounds good in theory but disappoints in execution. 50% short rib and 50% brisket? I guess. We will say the BBQ rub on the fries is delightful.

Fearing's - Mesquite Grilled Hamburger

2121 McKinney Avenue, Dallas, Texas 75201Street View

Fearing's's Mesquite Grilled Hamburger

After returning to Fearing's the burger was lacking in quality so we took it down a few notches

Five Guys - Cheeseburger

8240 Preston Road, Plano, TX 75024Street View

Five Guys's Cheeseburger

Decent burger, two patties by default, however the structural integrity of the patties was not up to par. We experienced excess dropage which was unpleasant. The fries are tasty, and we love that they offer vinegar to garnish them with.

Greenville Bar & Grill - GbG Burger

2817 Greenville Avenue, Dallas, TX 75206Street View

Greenville Bar & Grill's GbG Burger

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.

Grub Burger Bar - Guacapotle

4925 Greenville Ave., Dallas, TX 75206Street View

Grub Burger Bar's Guacapotle

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

HG Sply Co. - 80/20 Burger

2008 Greenville Ave, Dallas, TX 75206Street View

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

Hash House a go go - Smoked Bacon, Avocado & Cheddar Burger

1900 Preston Rd. #343, Plano, TX 75093Street View

Hash House a go go's Smoked Bacon, Avocado & Cheddar Burger

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.

Haymaker - Texan Burger

1520 Greenville Ave, Dallas, TX 75206Street View

Haymaker's Texan Burger

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.

Henry's Majestic - Henry's Marrow Spiked Burger

4900 McKinney Ave, Dallas, TX 75205Street View

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.

Hickory - Classic Burger

8100 Dallas Pkwy #115, Plano, TX 75024Street View

Hickory's Classic Burger

Hickory doesn't come close to Blue Plate's (Rathbun's now extinct fare) burger. It's average at best, less expensive, but average.

Hole In The Wall - Cheeseburger

11654 Harry Hines Boulevard, Dallas, TX 75229Street View

Hole In The Wall's Cheeseburger

It's better than a fast food burger, but that's about it. Their fries are pleasant as they have a unique taste. Also, the atmosphere is consistent with the name of this place.

House 34 - House 34 Burger

3403 Mckinney Ave, Dallas, TX 75204Street View

House 34's House 34 Burger

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.

Houston's Hamburgers - Bacon Cheeseburger

5745 State Highway 121, Lewisville, TX 75056Street View

Houston's Hamburgers's Bacon Cheeseburger

Decent bun, patties were tiny and lifeless. Fries and onion rings tasted like they were from a frozen bag.

Hudson House - The Cheeseburger

4448 Lovers Ln, Dallas, TX 75225Street View

Hudson House's The Cheeseburger

We were disappointed that Hudson House's burger wasn't on par with its sister restaurant, East Hampton Sandwich Co. A weak effort indeed.

In-N-Out Burger - Double Double

2800 Preston Rd, Frisco, TX 75034Street View

In-N-Out Burger's Double Double

We typically don't set foot in fast food burger joints, but eat this beef has been, and of course it fucking fails.

JG's Old Fashioned Hamburgers - Double Cheeseburger

12101 Greenville Ave Ste 109, Dallas, TX 75243Street View

JG's Old Fashioned Hamburgers's Double Cheeseburger

JG's is an extremely popular place for lunch. Tasty, but nothing to report.

Jake's Old Fashioned Hamburgers - Jake's Special

5505 Belt Line Rd, Dallas, TX 75254Street View

Jake's Old Fashioned Hamburgers's Jake's Special

Thousand Island dressing makes this burger unique, but it's lacking in patty and it looks like the cook sat on it before they brought it out. Reminds us of fast food.

K.T. Burger - Cheeseburger

32 Highland Park Village, Dallas, TX 75205Street View

K.T. Burger's Cheeseburger

A backyard BBQ burger wrapped in paper with a smashed bun. Plenty of better options in the surrounding area.

Keller's Drive In - Double Cheeseburger

6537 East Northwest Highway, Dallas, TX 75231Street View

Keller's Drive In's Double Cheeseburger

The toppings were disappointing on this burger. A slab of onions and no lettuce? We do not like. However, the price is right, and it definitely rivals your local fast food joint.

Kenny's Burger Joint - Pepperjack Guacamole Burger

1377 Legacy Drive, Frisco, Texas 75034Street View

Kenny's Burger Joint's Pepperjack Guacamole Burger

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.

Kessler Park Eating House - House Burger

1619 N Beckley Avenue, Dallas, TX 75203Street View

Kessler Park Eating House's House Burger

Bland patty, tough bun and nothing flavorful won't keep us coming back to Kessler. This burger sounds great on paper but in reality it doesn't deliver.

Ketchup Burger Bar - The Roadhouse

3028 N. Hall st. Suite 179, Dallas, TX 75204Street View

Ketchup Burger Bar's The Roadhouse

The quality at Ketchup has gone way downhill after they opened in 2011

Kickshaws Fast Gastro Food & Drink - House Burger

6713 W Northwest Hwy, Dallas, TX 75225Street View

Kickshaws Fast Gastro Food & Drink's House Burger

Overcooked patty and stock ingredients do not impress inside this fast casual eatery. We don't know what else to say besides skip it.

Kin Kin Urban Thai - Kin Kin Burger

3211 Oak Lawn Ave, Dallas, TX 75219Street View

Kin Kin Urban Thai's Kin Kin Burger

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.

Knife - Pimento Cheese

5680 N Central Expy, Dallas, TX 75206Street View

Knife's Pimento Cheese

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.

Knuckle Sandwich Co. - Knuckle Burger

3619 Greenville Ave, Dallas, TX 75206Street View

Knuckle Sandwich Co.'s Knuckle Burger

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 - Grass-Fed Burger

8315 Westchester Dr, Dallas, TX 75225Street View

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.

Lakewood Landing - "The" Burger

5818 Live Oak St, Dallas, TX 75214Street View

Lakewood Landing's "The" Burger

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.

Lakewood Smokehouse - Smoked Cheeseburger

1901 Abrams Rd, Dallas, TX 75214Street View

Lakewood Smokehouse's Smoked Cheeseburger

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.

Luscher's Red Hots - The 'Uncle Herky' Burger

2653 Commerce St., Dallas, TX 75226Street View

Luscher's Red Hots's The 'Uncle Herky' Burger

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.

MAX's Wine Dive - The Signature Blend Burger

3600 McKinney Ave., Ste. 100, Dallas, TX 75204Street View

MAX's Wine Dive's The Signature Blend Burger

When Max says signature blend he aint kidding: angus and short rib, brisket, chuck and beef belly. A tasty blend indeed, Max

Meddlesome Moth - Burgundy Pasture Burger

1621 Oak Lawn Avenue, Dallas, TX 75207Street View

Meddlesome Moth's Burgundy Pasture Burger

New, contemporary, and cozy atmosphere add to the burger potential here. Classy presentation, but the patty tasted like it was on the grill in shrimp remnants which provided for a very strange and unappetizing flavor.

Melios Bros. Char Bar - Deluxe Cheese Hamburger

2026 Greenville Ave, Dallas, TX 75206Street View

Melios Bros. Char Bar's Deluxe Cheese Hamburger

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.

Morton's The Steakhouse - Morton's Prime Burger

2222 McKinney Ave., Dallas, TX 75201Street View

Morton's The Steakhouse's Morton's Prime Burger

It was good, but the patty fell apart upon eating and turned into a right mess. We expect much much more from a $20 lunch burger, but I guess you get what you ask for in Uptown.

Nick & Sam's Grill - The NSG Burger

2816 Fairmount Street, Dallas, TX 75201Street View

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

Nova - Angus Brisket Burger

1417 W Davis St., Dallas, TX 75208Street View

Nova's Angus Brisket Burger

The best part about this burger is the grind, but everything else is lacking - especially veggies

Oak - The Oak Burger

1628 Oak Lawn Ave #110, Dallas, TX 75207Street View

Oak's The Oak Burger

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.

On The Lamb - Cheeseburger

2614 Elm St, Dallas, TX 75226Street View

On The Lamb's Cheeseburger

Man this one had potential, however it came with a burnt bun, extremely over salted, and no veg. What gives? We don't understand. The duck confit was absolutely killer though.

Papi's Red Hots - The Longhorn

4900 Main St, The Colony, TX 75056Street View

Papi's Red Hots's The Longhorn

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.

Paul Martin's American Grill - Bistro Burger

3848 Oak Lawn Ave, Dallas, TX 75219Street View

Paul Martin's American Grill's Bistro Burger

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.

Pepper Smash - B²LT Burger

7200 Bishop Rd, Plano, TX 75024Street View

Pepper Smash's B²LT 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.

Pink Magnolia - Pink Magnolia Burger

642 W Davis St, Dallas, TX 75208Street View

Pink Magnolia's Pink Magnolia Burger

We will never understand why chefs like fried onion strings and BBQ sauce on a burger. It trumps the flavor of everything else. The patty is the only notable ingredient as it was well put together.

Press Box Grill - Cowboy Burger

1623 Main Street, Dallas, Texas 75201Street View

Press Box Grill's Cowboy Burger

Overcooked patty, dry bun, uncooked bacon and lack of attention to detail make for an unfortunate experience at Press Box Grill.

Rooster's Roadhouse - Cheese Double Burger

113 Industial St, Denton, TX 76201Street View

Rooster's Roadhouse's Cheese Double Burger

Rooster's is outside of our Dallas comfort zone, but if you find yourself in Denton it's a great place to eat some beef. Unfortunately the lack of premium components push Rooster's to the fail page.

Rugby House Pub - The Rugger Burger

8604 Preston Road, Plano, TX 75024Street View

Rugby House Pub's The Rugger Burger

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.

Sixty Vines - The C.A.B. Burger

3701 Dallas Parkway, Plano, TX 75093Street View

Sixty Vines's The C.A.B. Burger

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.

Slater's 50/50 - The Original 50/50

2817 Greenville Ave, Dallas, TX 75206Street View

Slater's 50/50's The Original 50/50

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 - Classic Smashburger

4980 Belt Line Road, Dallas, TX 75254Street View

Smashburger's Classic Smashburger

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.

So & So's - Burger

3309 McKinney Ave, Dallas, TX 75206Street View

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.

Spork - Beef Burger

6110 Frankford Road, Dallas, TX 75252Street View

Spork's Beef Burger

The former chef at Mexican Sugar is better than this. Spork refuses to cook a burger less than well done which ruins their in-house ground beef. They're using a decent bun but it simply doesn't make up for their excuse for beef.

St. Paul Cafe - Cheeseburger

1707 San Jacinto, Dallas, TX 75201Street View

St. Paul Cafe's Cheeseburger

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.

Stan's Blue Note - Cheeseburger

2908 Greenville Avenue, Dallas, TX 75206Street View

Stan's Blue Note's Cheeseburger

The patty was grey and lifeless, assembly was required, and there was a puddle of butter sitting on top of the bun. Do not want.

Start - Start Burger

4023 Lemmon Ave, Dallas, TX 75219Street View

Start's Start Burger

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.

Stellar - Stellar Cheeseburger

2810 N Henderson Ave, Dallas, TX 75206Street View

Stellar's Stellar Cheeseburger

Great looking staff, bad looking burger. Stellar's effort is akin to your typical Uptown bar food leaving nothing memorable. Keep moving.

Sundown At Granada - Manitoba Burger

3520 Greenville Ave, Dallas, TX 75206Street View

Sundown At Granada's Manitoba Burger

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.

Taco Diner - Diner Cheeseburger

7201 Bishop Road, Plano, TX 75024Street View

Taco Diner's Diner Cheeseburger

Decent burger, but it tasted like the chef tried to kick Jack In The Box's ultimate cheese burger up a notch.

The Draft House - Cheeseburger

3940 Rosemeade Pkwy Suite 170, Dallas, TX 75287Street View

The Draft House's Cheeseburger

Overcooked frozen patty, lame bun and veggies, le fail.

The Local Oak - TLO Burger

409 N. Zang Blvd, Dallas, TX 75208Street View

The Local Oak's TLO Burger

We were not impressed by the burger here. The patty was flavorless and the veggies were sub-par

The Lot - The Lot Burger

7530 E Grand Ave, Dallas, TX 75214Street View

The Lot's The Lot Burger

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 Main Burgers and Bar - California Burger

5858 Main Street Suite 190, Frisco, TX 75034Street View

The Main Burgers and Bar's California Burger

Weak effort @ The Main. The patty was dry and the burger didn't have that slap yo mamma factor.

The Nodding Donkey - The Saloon Burger

2900 Thomas Avenue, Dallas, Texas 75204Street View

The Nodding Donkey's The Saloon Burger

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!

The Second Floor Restaurant - Homestyle Burger

13340 Dallas Parkway, Dallas, TX 75240Street View

The Second Floor Restaurant's Homestyle Burger

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.

The Standard Pour - Standard Burger

2900 McKinney Ave, Dallas, TX 75204Street View

The Standard Pour's Standard Burger

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!

Vagabond - Build Your Burger

3619 Greenville Ave, Dallas, TX 75206Street View

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.

Vernons Gastropub - Mo Burger

5290 Beltline Rd Ste 142, Dallas, TX 75254Street View

Vernons Gastropub's Mo Burger

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 Sons - 44 farms burger

3525 Greenville Ave, Dallas, TX 75206Street View

Wayward Sons's 44 farms burger

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.

Wheelhouse - The Standard Burger

1617 Hi Line Dr, Dallas, TX 75207Street View

Wheelhouse's The Standard Burger

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.

Who's Who Burger - Kobe Beef Cheeseburger

69 Highland Park Village, Dallas, TX 75205Street View

Who's Who Burger's Kobe Beef Cheeseburger

Decent burger, good fries, not reasonably priced. Who's who just doesn't have what it takes. Fail!

Work - Work Burger

2618 Elm St., Dallas, TX 75226Street View

Work's Work Burger

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.

Immediately after biting into the pub burger we got a rush of grill flavor from the patty, but sadly from nothing else. Pretty looking bun from Empire, little flavor from the cheese and the veggies were sparse and unappealing.
