1. Zoli's NY Pizza

Addison, TX 75001

Yes, Zoli’s is arguably best known for its thin crust, New York style pizzas, but the “ODB” is the unsung hero of the menu. Called the “Obligatory Dallas Burger,” this double-pattied wonder is topped with plenty of American cheese and pickles for a bite of acidic contrast.

2. Keller's Drive-In

Copy Link
6537 E Northwest Hwy
Dallas, TX 75231
(214) 368-1209

Founded by Jack Keller more than 50 years ago, this drive-in burger joint is a Dallas institution. In the era of the $10 (at least!) burger, you can still score a killer cheeseburger served on a poppy seed bun, crispy tater tots, and milkshake at Keller’s for less cash than any of those swanky new burger establishments.

The burgers at this East Dallas favorite are legendary, but the classic Cheese Burger at Goodfriend Beer Garden and Burger House is the cream of the crop.

Haystack Burgers and Barley just opened up a new location at Hillcrest and Arapaho in Dallas, but fans of burger perfection will find perfect burgers at any of the small, family-owned chain’s locations. The Vanderslice is a fan favorite, with its fancy Big Mac stylings, and definitely don’t sleep on the milkshakes.

This Dallas-based chain proves that multiple locations don’t have to mean burger mediocrity. Burger House has been serving up patties to enthusiasts across Dallas-Fort Worth for more than sixty years, which probably has something to do with the special seasoning used on those patties.

7. Dairy-ette

Even people who are too young to remember the original days of car hops and drive-ins can appreciate the appeal of an old-school spot like Dairy-Ette. Pull in, flash your headlights, and prepare to enjoy a thin patty burger griddled to perfection. A side of onion rings and a frosty mug of housemade root beer only makes things better.

8. Maple & Motor

4810 Maple Ave
Dallas, TX 75219

Originally a Fort Worth institution, Rodeo Goat is up to six locations in the DFW area. Besides the burger battles that take place every week – orders equal votes in this competition – the Royale With Cheese burger is a classic order, featuring American cheese, chopped onions, jalapeño bacon, mustard and spiked ketchup. Please also note that the Goat’s infamous cheese fries are half price on Wednesdays.

10. Hero

3090 Olive St
Dallas, TX 75219

The Remedy burger, which harkens back to the now-shuttered Greenville Avenue restaurant Remedy, is an absolute classic. For a buck more, zhuzh things up even more with the Ranchito, which adds Valentina aioli, pickled jalapenos, and white queso to an already excellent burger.

111 S Hall St
Dallas, TX 75226

Bringing along a cult-like following from the original location in North Dallas, Sky Rocket Burger makes an ideal takeout burger.

12. Uncle Uber's

Copy Link
2713 Commerce St
Dallas, TX 75226
(214) 653-8237
Visit Website

Sandwiches of all sorts shine at Uncle Uber’s, but the burger is the real gem. Make yours a single, double, or triple, then top it off with your choice of cheese and bacon, avocado, mushrooms or grilled jalapeños.

13. Wingfield's Breakfast & Burgers

2615 S Beckley Ave
Dallas, TX 75224
(214) 943-5214

This tiny eatery is decidedly off the beaten path, but enthusiasts happily line up for the chance to sit on the curb and try to finish a Wingfield’s massive bacon-topped burger whenever the craving strikes. Pro tip: to skip the line, call an order in before making the drive to pick up.

14. Stackhouse

2917 Gaston Ave
Dallas, TX 75226

There’s nothing quite like eating a classic $8 cheeseburger on the rooftop patio at Stackhouse Burgers. Here, stunning views of Downtown pair with juicy burgers that can be topped with freshly grilled jalapenos for just a buck more.

An offshoot of celebrity chef John Tesar’s much-lauded steakhouse Knife, it’s not surprising that Knife Burger is home to a top-notch burger. Made with Texas-raised beef from 44 Farms and topped with American cheese or gooey pimento-cheese, Tesar’s burger game is seriously strong.
