Dallas Chefs and Personalities on Favorite Burgers, Then and Now, Plus What Makes A Great Burger
What's your favorite burger now?
Maddy: "Hands down, Off-Site Kitchen. Sorry, Snuffers. It's the perfect one-hand cheeseburger on a Friday before service. I think I've had one every Friday since they opened."
Alexis: "Love the Grape, Maple and Motor, Twisted Root, but I have to say Liberty Burger by a hair. The variety there appeals to my admittedly weird burger tastes."
Dhurandhar: "I would say a tie in between our 'Pat La Frieda' patty at the new Nick & Sam's grill and Off-Site Kitchen."
Cuban: "The buffalo burgers at Twisted Root by SMU. Healthy, tasty, lots of good fixin's."
Erdeljac: "Now, my favorite burger is definitely The Patty Melt at my restaurant, half-pound patty, caramelized onions, sautéed mushrooms, Provolone, Swiss and a roasted garlic aioli on toasted wheat."
Davidson: "I don't eat a lot of burgers now, but I'll go with Kincaid's in Fort Worth."
Harris: "Maple and Motor."
Green: "Off-Site Kitchen's Stock cheeseburger."
Balke: "Angry Dog. They win for their options. Choices like cheese, grilled or raw onions, grilled jalapeños, bacon, condiments and numerous other options. Also, cooked on a griddle and a perfectly toasted bun."
Romano: "Eatzi's makes an excellent burger, that has to be my favorite."
Johnson: "Nowadays, I'm a big fan of the P.L.O.T. at Goodfriend (of course)."
Tate: "Honestly, I very rarely eat them. If I do it's usually at Ava or Boulevardier. I hear they're pretty good. I also had a really good burger at Goodfriend recently."
