The taqueria-littered landscape of Old East Dallas will soon be home to a brand new burger place: Harvey G's is gearing up to open on Columbia Avenue (near Carroll) as soon as mid-month, reports CultureMap Dallas. (Owner Barry Brown founded White Rock-area beer biscuit haven Barbec's, "though he sold it in 1999.")

The burger specialty of the house seems to be the Pancho Villa, a beastly-sounding charbroiled half-pounder topped off with hashbrowns, a fried egg, bacon, ham, cheese, and Thousand Island. Other potential menu standouts include spiral-cut fries topped with queso, a patty melt, Frito pie, and a chicken sandwich (grilled or fried) with bacon, Swiss, and avocado.

The sweet side of the menu includes soft-serve that can be had in shakes and dipped cones, which is certainly good news for the local Dairy Queen-starved populace. And since nothing goes better with a big ol' burger than beer, Harvey G's will have plenty of that: Mostly local, the menu promises. CultureMap says that while the restaurant will be mostly intended for takeout, "there's nothing stopping you from snacking in front, Wingfield's-style."
