100 Favorite Dishes, No. 66: Just About Any Burger At Off Site Kitchen
To prepare for this fall's Best of Dallas® 2012 issue, we're counting down (in no particular order) our 100 Favorite Dishes. If there's a dish you think we need to try, leave it in the comments, or email me.
We all love burgers. No doubt. Wanna start a blog people will talk about? Devote it to burgers. Burgers are the everyman's food we can't put down and our ravenous quest for bovinity has spurred the opening of countless burger chains all over Dallas, and all over the country.
The thing is, burgers aren't good for us. Most of the time they're absolutely terrible, which is one of the reasons why I'm so smitten with the offering at Off-Site Kitchen. (The other is they rock.) The burgers here are diminutive, yet still filling. They're juicy and flavorful, but leave me with a sense of well-being instead of shame and guilt. While the Old Murph up there certainly can't be classified as health food, I'm sure it wouldn't be that hard to convince your doctor it's in your best interest to indulge an Off Site Kitchen burger once a week or so. Especially if it keeps you from pummeling your arteries with a gut bomb from Wingfield's.
