Wait ... The Best Burgers Aren't in Dallas? Says Who? Plus, Tracking Food Trucks.

Last week DFW.com published their final rankings for their 2011 Battle of the Burgers, which involved their editors tirelessly gorging themselves on fat patties for the past six months. In the end, they "recognize that the bracket format is not without flaws." Nonetheless, according to them, the top three burgers in the Dallas area are:

1. Pop's Burger and Grill, Fort Worth 2. Chop House Burger, Arlington (Dat's what-I'M-talkin'bout.) 3. Fred's Texas Cafe, Fort Worth

TheBittenWord just posted a Pad Thai Challenge! Delivery vs. Homemade. Inspired by the June/July issue of Fine Cooking, they offer some interesting insight into the difficulty of making a Pad Thai from scratch versus just calling a guy down the street to deliver it. (Guess who won.)

If you haven't heard of Ree Drummond, you probably will soon. She's the Pioneer Woman who lives on a big ranch up in Oklahoma, home schools her kids, dabbles in photography, design and is an amazing cook. This weekend is the first episode of her new show on the Food Network. Her site has been my go-to source for new recipes for the past few years. There are so many favorites ... The Best Chocolate Sheet Cake. Ever. Corn Chowder with Chiles and, oh, Homemade Cinnamon Bread.

Food Trucks. OK. City Street Grille is doing their breakfast taco thing in the Arts District. Gandoflo's New York Deli and Ssahm BBQ are also both in the Arts District but for lunch.

And Jack's ChowHound is serving lunch at Sigel's on Fitzugh from 11:30 a.m. until 2 p.m.

And Nammi is in Las Colinas for lunch and off MacArthur for dinner.
