Sugar Rush: Peanut Butter Pie at The Rustic in Dallas, TX

Sweets Meredith Bethune 1 comment

Pies are the only sweets option at The Rustic. It was near impossible to choose from their offerings of key lime, banoffee, and chocolate silk, but in the end I trusted a local's recommendation of peanut butter. As the waitress placed the towering piece of quivering pie on our picnic table, I noticed it was loaded with halved peanuts and a drizzle of chocolate sauce. More

A Hamburger Today J. Kenji López-Alt 35 comments

Hopdoddy's burgers are a good value for the size, but the well-seasoned burgers are dense and bland with no beefy flavor to speak of. More

Here's a list of all their Burger Week coverage. More

Dallas: More Attitude Than Flavor At Twisted Root Burger Company

A Hamburger Today J. Kenji López-Alt 25 comments

Twisted Root Burger Company makes decent burgers, but they're not worth the headache of the restaurant's forced attitude and unnecessary bad-assness. More

Dallas: For A Local Institution, Snuffer's Still Has Work To Do

A Hamburger Today Ewan Macdonald 8 comments

North Dallas residents will always love Snuffer's, but visitors need to know that there are much better burgers—and better cheese fries, too—elsewhere in the area. More

Dallas: Big, Fat, Down and Dirty Burgers At Adair's Saloon

A Hamburger Today J. Kenji López-Alt 6 comments

Sometimes great burger experiences are found at places that specifically aren't burger joints, and precisely because they aren't burger joints. Take the big fat monster served at Adair's Saloon, a dive bar lover's dive bar on Commerce Street in Dallas. More

A Sandwich A Day: The Chopped Coffee Cured Beef Brisket at Smoke in Dallas

A Sandwich a Day J. Kenji López-Alt Post a comment

If you're used to getting your barbecue the real Texas way—no plates, no utensils, just a big ol' pile of meat served on wax paper on your tray, then you may well dismiss Smoke, chef Tim Byres's Dallas restaurant before even sampling it's 'cue. That would be a mistake, as it is exceptional. There is a certain amount of self-consciousness inherent to a barbecue restaurant that serves its fare on china and tablecloths and grows its own vegetables in a garden out back, but there's nothing pretentious about the service or prices at Smoke.

Dallas: Retro Burger Charm at Dairy-Ette

A Hamburger Today J. Kenji López-Alt 12 comments

Drive up to the all-caps neon side and pull under the carhop awning across the street from Bishop Lynch High School and you'll find yourself at the Dairy-Ette, a '50s-era burger joint that has changed little in over 50 years of continual service. It's the kind of spot you can imagine Archie and Jughead pulling into in their jalopy. Betty and Veronica might tag a long for the homemade root beer and floats. More

Dallas: Smashingly Good Burgers At Off-Site Kitchen

A Hamburger Today J. Kenji López-Alt 12 comments

I took my first bite, trying as hard as I could to avoid making a mess, but it was inevitable. Beefy juices dripped down to my chin and onto the picnic table. Perfectly melted cheese oozed out of the edges, coating my fingers in its salty, tangy trap. The bun, soft, shiny, slightly sweet, and perfectly toasted, holds the whole thing together just so, but yields into tender butteriness in your mouth. The state of Texas and the city of Dallas in particular are havens for burger lovers of all shapes and sizes, but despite a week of great burgers and barbecue across the state, this is the one that I still dream about.

A Sandwich a Day: The Cubano from Union Bear in Dallas, TX

A Sandwich a Day Rich Vana 17 comments

The Cubano at the relatively new Union Bear in Dallas doesn't leave a lot to be desired for the Texas tastebud. The jalapenos make sure of that. And while the Cuban sandwich purist may argue that the cheese is untraditional and their ham comes from the wrong part of the pig (they use pork butt), well, they'll stop caring after taking a bite.

Dallas: Come For The View, But Don't Eat The Food At Stackhouse Burgers
