Knife's Ozersky Burger Named One of the Best in the U.S.
This burger has been around long enough to become a Dallas classic, and for good reason – the uber-simple burger is cooked perfectly and topped only with American cheese and red onion on a white bun. It's simple, it's good and now Thrillist says it's one of the best in the country.
