Twisted Root Plants In Arlington, Along With (Yet Another) In-N-Out Burger

As part of Arlington's Re-identification Program, Twisted Root Burger Company is opening today at 300 E. Abram Street in the original downtown area of the city. By renovating an old furniture store, this Reader's Pick for Best Burger has quietly flown in under radar to this newest location.

Just a hop, skip and a stagger west of Collins and the stadiums, this freshly starched area now includes a Fuzzy's, Flying Fish, Babe's Chicken, Mellow Mushroom Pizza and Grease Monkey's Burgers, all attracting a mix of sports fans, UTA students and locals.

An In-N-Out Burger also opened less than two weeks ago near the Parks Mall in south Arlington. This ninth metroplex installment in five months from California was welcomed with substantially less fanfare then the first opening, leading us to wonder: at what number does a place lose its appeal?

Two, you say? Such a snob.
