'Good eaters?' Who says that? Especially about themselves?
My people can eat and, more than that, my people will try just about anything - especially if it comes in the form of a dive, or a hole-in-the-wall, or it's attached to a gas station.
I mean, I'm not bragging or anything, but Trey and I discovered that the tacos at Fuel City just down the road were the best in Texas long before Texas Monthly made it official.
We pride ourselves on our love of grocery store fried chicken.
The reason I'm giving you this background is that it will explain why Friday, with Trey out of town and me needing an outing with the kids, we decided to head on over to Dallas' newest hot spot...
Trey had been a couple of times by himself and come home raving about the great, albeit unconventional, burger he'd enjoyed.
The rest of the crew had not yet partaken and decided we'd better get on it before the whole city started lining up outside the bright orange, drive-up hut that is Burguesa Burger.
Oh, wait, they already have.
You see, just weeks after opening, Burguesa Burger was was crowned one of the "Reason's we Love Dallas" by D Magazine.
We've driven past this little hut for years heading to West Dallas. It's been a chicken and waffles place, a home-cookin' place, and finally, Burguesa Burger.
La Monumental is what they're famous for so, of course, it's what we ordered. If you're gonna be a bear, be a grizzly.
Here's the menu.
Delicioso. With fries and Mexican sodas, it was a hit all around. The kids loved it, the people sitting next to us at the outdoor picnic tables loved it, and the people standing in line waiting in the heat were happy as clams.
