Hopdoddy Hype

What it takes to build the best six-dollar burger ever.

The turkey patty is a knockout, boasting coarsely ground, juicy meat that actually still tastes and looks like turkey. The bun it rests on, however, is dry and grainy enough to completely ruin the experience.

The veggie burger rests on the same arid bread, and while the flavor of black beans, rice and spices is wonderful, the patty itself is too soft and squishes out the sides with every bite.

The milkshakes are based on runny soft-serve, so if you like a thick shake (or one made with great ice cream) you're out of luck too, but there are better things to drink here.

Hopdoddy's bar offers a decent selection of Texas beers. Peticolas, (512), Deep Ellum, Live Oak and St. Arnold are all poured into heavy goblets for swilling 18 ounces at a time. Take a seat at the blond maple bar and order. Your favorite and a delicious burger will be with you shortly.

Just don't get too comfortable. Hopdoddy may bill itself as a burger bar, but it's not really a place you'd want to sit around and put in a session. After all, if Foles is going to serve 1,000 burgers a day, he's going to need you to vacate that seat before too long. And Foles sounds like a man who's serious about his business.

When asked about his plans for expansion, Foles is direct. "That was our goal," he says. "We've done it with a bunch of concepts. We think this is the best concept we've ever done."

Best burger in Dallas is wood-grilled for great flavor, fresh fries, not frozen, at Rathbun's Blue Plate Kitchen in Preston Center, this burger is amazing.

@Sharon_Moreanus Burgers decline in flavor every second they spend off the grill. Have a seat at the bar and devour yours there. It's worth it.
