Simple, tried and true methods made this year one of the best in Dallas burger history.
Citizens of this great city, the state of our beef union is strong, but it has been a madcap year for the cow. We’ve lost, and we’ve gained. We’ve torn down the new, and, in a breath, boarded up the old. Only the vegan may be blissfully unaware of this movement: 2017 was, and is, the golden age of the Dallas cheeseburger.

It was a year wherein the cheeseburger adapted to Dallas’ food evolution. The best ones harken back to the fast food we devoured in cars as kids. These new burgers are, at heart, straight-up dedications to good, old-fashioned cheeseburgers. They’ll remind you of the sandwiches you ate in smoky backyards, the drive-through or bars at 1 a.m.

These are the best new Dallas burgers of 2017.
