If you're thinking about opening up a burger restaurant in the area, you better be ready to step up your game. Another casual beer and burger joint called Rodeo Goat Ice House has opened near Fort Worth's Cultural District and they're grinding the meat for their burgers in house every day.
Burger restaurants have been sprouting up all over Dallas but most of them purchase ground meat from processing facilities. Restaurants that actually grind their beef on site are a bit of a rarity.
Hopdoddy, the new restaurant out of Austin, grinds their meat on premise in addition to baking their own buns fresh every day. Boulevardier grinds their own meat, but you have to pay $14 to get a burger there. Rodeo Goat, on the other hand, charges $9 for a burger topped with an entire delicatessen.
There's beer, of course. The bar offers everything from local, craft brews from Peticolas, Live Oak and more, to Budweiser and Coors. You can find them near at 2836 Bledsoe St. in Fort Worth.
