ROUND ‘EM UP
The best burgers to satisfy your cravings – day and night.
As the temperatures rise in Dallas and we welcome in the lazy days of summer, there’s nothing more quintessential than laying by the pool and grilling. The summer menus at our favorite restaurants nod to food fit for grilling minus breaking a sweat over the grill. Each restaurant has its own take on the American classic, so whether you’re a lady who lunches looking for a dainty bite, to a sports fan who wants a hearty meal paired with your favorite beer to accompany the game, we’ve rounded up our favorites.
The Standard Burger
Don’t let the name fool you. Wheelhouse’s burger is far from standard! Every aspect of The Standard is house-made. Buns: made from scratch. Patty: dry-aged for over a month. Bread & butter pickles: brined in house. Secret sauce: staying Wheelhouse’s secret, but adding that “je ne sais quois” to round out things with a powerful zing. Visually, it’s an ode to a classic cheeseburger, but Wheelhouse’s artisan touch elevates (It won “Best Burger” in D Magazine‘s Best of Big D Awards last year).
The Details: Wheelhouse, 1617 High Line Drive. Complimentary valet.
For those looking for a lighter mid-day meal, Mirador offers a daintier burger option that pairs well with a glass of rosé. Think of it as finger food, Texas-style. The patty is served on a molasses wheat bun topped with sharp cheddar and finished with gribiche: an elegant French-style egg and mustard sauce with aromatics and capers.

CBD Provisions’ food is always made to perfection with the highest quality ingredients; and their burger is no exception. There’s no need to ask for extra cheese with this burger which doubles down with extra melty layers. Each grass-fed patty—an 80/20 ratio of beef to fat—is gets a double dose of cheese. grass-fed beef, fancy sauce, mustard, pickle, caramelized onion.
The Details: CBD Provisions, 1530 Main Street. $15.
Looking for fast food in elevated digs? Then look no further than the double cheeseburger at Midnight Rambler. Wrapped in paper and served in a cardboard box, their burger is an homage to IN-N-OUT but in much cooler digs. The burger, part of Midnight Rambler’s late night menu is available until 2 AM every night.
