THE TOP TEN
The best of the best in Dallas Texas
1. Wingfield’s – Cheeseburger
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!
2. Rapscallion – Grass Fed 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.
3. 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.
4. Montlake Cut – Tillamook Cheddar Burger
The Neighborhood Services fam does it again with a delicious heartwarming burger. Montlake is currently the only restaurant sourcing southeast family farms and you can tell. The patty is perfectly formed to support the bun which sits on a bed of simple and fresh veggies. Thousand island dressing gives it a familiar kick. Must try this burger.
5. Harlowe MXM – MXM Burger
Yes, yes, yes. We love when a newcomer on the burger scene blows us away. Lovely bun and veg, brittle brisket and short rib patty warmed by a blanket of cheese. You have the option of adding a lobster tail for $8 but trust us, the beef speaks for itself. Also, there’s few people in Dallas that are willing to pay for a $24 burger
6. 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.
7. Stirr – Stirr Crazy
Look at that cute little bacon square! The half-pound chuck and brisket patty was moist and cooked perfectly, veg was top notch, and the bun came from some delicious bakery whose name escapes us. Also the crispy tobacco onions on the Cow + Pig burger were surprisingly tasty and not overpowering. An ETB first!
8. The Royale Magnificent Burgers – The American Treasure
Proportion is key with burgers and The Royale nails it 100%. Every ingredient coalesces in delicious beefy harmony. This burger made me feel something in my naughty bits, we highly recommend you indulge in John’s latest effort (which is MUCH better than Knife, in our humble opinion).
9. 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!
10. Small Brewpub – American Burger
Dat in-house bun doe. Patties cooked to perfection, fresh veg, melty american cheese, and in-house aioli make this one a winner. A true classic that hits all the nostalgic fast food taste buds. Also the beef belly on rolls were amazing as well.
