100 Favorite Dishes, No. 100: The Cleaver and Block Burger at NHS Tavern

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.

NHS Tavern's Cleaver and Block Burger has an unfair advantage over every other burger I've eaten in Dallas: It was the first I ate after moving here.

As I tried to adapt and withered under previously unknown heat, this burger comforted me. Maybe it was the fresh and generously applied toppings, or maybe it was that stunner of a bun. It could have been the seven Pabst Blue Ribbons I drank, too, but it doesn't matter -- the memory of that burger stays with me and likely always will.

Hungry for more? Check back every morning for another dish, and download our Best Of App for Android and iPhone for more picks on the go.

Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
