12 Off-The-Beaten-Path Burgers in North Texas
Previously Foodbitch pointed us towards the burger at the pan-Mediterranean spot Farnatchi. She ordered the burger only because it was what everyone else in the house was munching. The burger is loaded with aromatic spices and is stuffed with gooey cheese served on a toasted bun.
For something a little different, track down the other orange burger place at one of its four locations in the area. Or for something huge, order the La Monumental burger with avocado, refried beans, a tostada, ham, two patties and two slices of cheese. You can also order any burger the "El Jefe way," which comes with a tortilla instead of a bun.
I'm pretty sure Boots Burgers is in someone's backyard (701 Austin St., Rockwall), but the history of the spot is hard to nail down because they don't mess with things like Facebook and probably don't know nor care what a GoDaddy account is. They've been serving lowbrow burgers for several decades out of a small garage-like structure. According to local legend, Chuck Norris ate there. Pow! They're open only for lunch.
The Holy Grail
The Holy Grail's (8420 Preston Road) burger is made with a mix of 90 percent sirloin and 10 percent pork fat, which they grind in-house daily and pass through one time to maintain a thick and chunky texture. The Knights would be proud.
