Fans of the single-patty with cheese can shave a few bucks off the tab tomorrow, as widely known burger chain, Burger House, is celebrating a milestone with a sale. The Dallas-based restaurant known for its "secret salt" is honoring 60 years with a price tag of as many cents. $3.49 cheeseburgers will be going for a mere 60 cents, with a limit of 5 per dine-in customer, at each of the seven Dallas area locations (as well as Lubbock).
The original location, opened by Jack Koustobardis near the SMU campus in 1951, kept things simple with burgers, fries and shakes and malts. Faces have changed -- Angelo S. Chantilis and Steve G. Canellos took ownership in 1982 and franchises are available -- and it's likely that cholesterol levels have for regulars going on six decades, but not all that much on the menu has changed over the years, save the addition of a chicken sandwich, corn dog and some kid friendly fare.
Many happy returns to you, Burger House. May you carry on as long as the aroma of your fries.
