You always wanted to drink a hand-dipped purple milkshake. At The Purple Cow, you can do just that. Founded in 1989 in Little Rock, Arkansas, by chef Paul Bash and Ed Moore, there are three Dallas-area outposts that sell not only the purple milkshake but also classic Southern and general American favorites. There are burgers like the popular Hot Mama (hot jack cheese, jalapeños, salsa and chipotle mayo. Hot dogs like the Chicago Super Dog are also big sellers. The entrée list is short but is sure to please with the inclusion of chicken-fried steak and a tilapia platter. However, the real clientele are children. The Purple Cow is overrun with kids and their parents, the latter quietly sipping on adult milkshakes, including the moo jito.
