    For good quality beef, great atmosphere my personal favorite is the Cheddar Burger at Twisted Root. Their sweet potato chips are great as well. For a quick drive-through burger....it's got to be Burger House.

          I don't know about their burgers, but they do make pretty good fries.

        Got to Adair's for burger, and it sure ranks up there with the best of 'em!

                I think he meant the Coppell Deli, not diner. The address is 449 W Bethel Rd. in Coppell, it isn't near the stadium, but pretty close to the Cowboys practice facility in Valley Ranch. You do see quite a few Cowboys in there from time to time. Great burgers too! Although for the best I'd vote Wingfields in S. Dallas or Adair's.

                  if that's the case then Deliman Grill is of the same vintage on Denton Tap near 121. I just wasn't sure if he was referring to Local Diner (decent burgers) or Coppell Deli.

                For Fort Worth; Kincaid's. For Dallas: Chip's, Angry Dog, or Uptown Bar and Grill. Have not been to the new Uptown location since they moved across the street but old location had some great burgers.

                    Try the Copell Diner near the Cowboys stadium. not a pretty place but good burgers and a chance to see some coaches and players from time to time.

                        http://www.fredstexascafe.com/ it's a Fort Worth institution. Make sure and ask for extra Mustard

                        Freds is great and their dinner is inspired. I think that the burgers at Adairs in Dallas or better for a bar type burger. Freds is more interesting, all though Adairs will give them a run for their money.

                        Have to throw my hat in the ring. My vote goes to Fred's Cafe in FW. Juicy great burger. Love Kincaid's too but if I was in FW Fred's hands down beats Kincaids IMHO.

                          Where's the location of Adair's? Would like to try it this weekend when I'm up in Big D visiting a chowhound bud.

                            Hey txtinker...Adair's is on Commerce, almost under I45...but don't worry, berlin will take you there! It's just simply the best....laid back...it's as close to Austin as Dallas can get!

                            My vote goes to Adair's...it's just the best. Angry Dog and Keller's are also good, but no place can match Adair's for the burger, fun times and good music! It's the real deal.

                              Had a surprisingly great 1/2 lb burger at La Hacienda, very well made, juicy and very, very tasty.

                                Had a great burger last night at Kellers. I dont really hear much about it anymore. I had'nt been in a while. The shakes are ok but for 1.75 it was pretty good.

                                  D Magazine did a whole article on this last year and they do updates on this topic regularly.

                                  Personally, I'd stick to Kincaids in FW.

                                        I love Al's hamburgers in north Arlington. :) They're great. It's sort of divey, but I like that.

                                          as I see it, there are two kinds of burgers: burgers with exceptionally tasty meat, where the patty stands alone, and burgers that have all kinds of delicious ingredients piled on top.

                                          In the first category (mmmm.... meat!) my favorite has been Angry Dog, a bar in Deep Ellum. The burger has a great beefy flavor. I also really enjoy Balls, which has a very "juicy" burger. Also I really like the pickles that they use.

                                          In the second category, my favorite is Twisted Root. Also very good meat, but I enjoy their plain burgers less than their burgers with lots of stuff (blue cheese/bacon, for instance). They also have some really good and unique condiments and sides.

                                          Sort of in between the two categories, I also like the burger at the Stonleigh P. Pretty good meat, and served on a pumpernickel bun, and with dijon mustard. There are a bunch of qualifiers for the burgers here - no ketchup, no fries - but I really enjoy them.

                                            I agree with your picks except since I am up North I would toss Scotty Ps and Ye Old Butcher shop (downtown Plano) in the mix. Scotty Ps burgers can go up against twisted root in the stuff category with ease and their onion rings are better. Ye Old butcher shop with their black Angus or Wednesday their Elk burger is hard to beat for taste.
