Three Dallas-area burgers make Top 50 Burger List by Restaurants & Institutions magazine
The sleeper here is the Lone Star Burger at Parkland Health & Hospital System.
Three Dallas-area burgers got spots on a list of Top 50 Burgers compiled by Restaurants & Institutions magazine:
- "Dirty Love" burger at Love Shack in Fort Worth ("A petite quail egg finishes Chef-owner Tim Love's recipe with an extra burst of flavor at his outdoor burger joint. What's in that Love Sauce? Tim's not saying.")
- Chipotle, Guac, & Cheddar Burger at Twisted Root in Deep Ellum ("Brisket reigns in Texas, making the slow-cooked beef a natural choice to join up with ground chuck for this hearty burger.")
- and here's the sleeper: the Lone Star Burger at Parkland Health & Hospital System in Dallas ("Regional touches such as Parkland's pico de gallo and Texas-shaped tortilla chips jazz up this sweet-and-spicy burger.")
Parkland's burger is on the menu at its Parkland Cafe, on the ground floor of the main hospital at 5201 Harry Hines Boulevard, which recently also implemented an organic-foods initiative, with organic fruits and vegetables and a daily soup featuring organic ingredients.
The presence of the burger at Parkland would seem to be an oddity but the list includes a number of burgers from various hospital facilities.
The burgers aren't ranked numerically -- i.e., there is no "No. 1" -- but instead are broken down into five categories by price: $2.85-$5.75, $5.95-$8, $8.95-$12, $12-$14.50, and $14.95 to yowsa $32 (the infamous DB Burger at DB Bistro Moderne in New York City, stuffed with short ribs, foie gras, and black truffle, responsible for starting this whole upscale-burger craze).
