DFW Find Your Burger Challenge

story and photography by Kimberly Stephens
Word to the wise: stretchy pants may be required for the news I'm about to share with you.

Chef Tim Love created an epic challenge for the month of February and I was absolutely thrilled to attempt to take it on. What challenge, you may ask? A burger crawl in the Fort Worth through 4 of his restaurants!

I was able to visit 2 of the 4 restaurants and my first stop was Lonesome Dove, where I was lucky enough to try a plethora of small snacks before the main dish was served.

I went in to Lonesome Dove for lunch and had the featured burger which was a 50/50 ground tenderloin and NY strip patty, layered into a respectable double cheeseburger. Can we say succulent? I throughly appreciate someone else who adores burgers just as much as I do and adds cheese on each layer of meat. (Meat. Cheese. Repeat.)

My second stop for the day was Woodshed SmokeHouse. I just knew I had to get the namesake Woodshed Burger! Of course, I’m extra, so I had to throw a egg on top! The Woodshed Burger is truly a meat-lovers dream; chopped brisket, today's sausage-rabbit and rattlesnake (don’t knock it until you try it!) and smoked cheddar.

To wrap up my time at Woodshed, of course I had to get the smokin’ chocolate pie with bacon because.... everything is better with bacon, right? I can't wait to return for everything, but most of all, that burger, oh, that burger.

Well, DFW, are you up for the challenge? If so, you have until the end of February to eat a burger at all 4 locations to win a $100 gift card! Don’t forget to tag #loveyourbURGEr in your pictures!

(In case you weren't aware, Each of these locations serve so much more than just burgers...scroll thru to see each location we stopped by and what else we ate/drank!)

Make Healthy Choices Simple With The Halal Guys

The Halal Guys recently opened their newest Dallas area location on lower Greenville, the third in the area. The company has plans to expand further in the DFW, with the next being in north Plano in the coming weeks. The company began as a street cart in NY and now has grown to locations throughout the US and worldwide. Talk about a success story! The Halal Guys is an excellent choice for those who want to eat healthy without breaking the bank. Wondering what exactly Halal means? I had that very question a few years back upon seeing it on a restaurant door, and googled away. I also recently wrote an article for Richardson Living explaining just that. It introduces the concept and talks a bit more about the Richardson location of Halal Guys and explains their menu.  The menu is the same at all locations of The Halal Guys. You go through the line, and build your own wrap or platter. Fill it with your choice of gyro, chicken, or combo, then load it up with toppings and sauce

Get Saucy at Razzoo's Cajun Cafe Plano

I've long been a fan of Razzoo's Cajun Cafe, a Texas born restaurant that features scratch-made Lousiana favorites. All locations are locally owned, and the 26-year-old restaurant has most of its locations in Texas, with one in NC, and some new spots TBA in the near future. Some of my favorite fried indulgences at Razzoo's are the "Rat Toes" on their appetizer menu. If you love a bit of spice, ignore the name and order up some of these jalapenos stuffed with shrimp, crab, then battered and fried, served with a Cajun Buttermilk sauce for dipping. And that's just scratching the slippery surface on all of the house-made delicious sauces at Razzoo's. National Hot & Spicy Food Day is Saturday, August 19, so in anticipation of that awesome food holiday, Razzoo's  invited us out for our own little sauce tasting, AKA Delia' Paradise. I was NOT aware that Razzoo's cooks up FIFTEEN different sauces in house, and once I found this out, I cou

A Tribute to El Palacio of Mexican Food, Huntsville, Alabama

This week a large piece of my childhood will be laid to rest. I know you think I'm being overly dramatic, but if you've ever had an iconic place where you've spend a large chunk of your life, I hope you'll understand where I'm coming from on this.  I have literally 24 other restaurant story deadlines to meet, but today the only thing on my mind is the news I received yesterday. I found out by a fluke (an owner's response to a Facebook review I'd posted years ago), and ended up having to be the bearer of bad news to my family and friends who also hold this establishment near and dear to their hearts.  The first restaurant I ever loved is closing their doors this week. This is my farewell. El Palacio opened in Huntsville 51 years ago, in 1966. Jimmy and Nonie McClure opened the very first location in Amarillo in 1962 in a remodeled gas station, after the Mexican food they added to their steakhouse menu started selling like wildfire. They wanted to
