Veggie Burger in Dallas

Delhiite May 10, 2005 03:12 PM

Hi All,

Any suggestion on a place that serves Good Veggie burger? I am not looking for a place that uses the GArden Burger patties off the Freezer.

Only place I know that makes fresh Patty is Gazeebo Burger at Frankford and Tollway. Trying to find more places that serves the Veggie option. Thanks.

    Houstons's serves a great Veggie Burger. Two locations, Preston south of NW Hwy, and Beltline just east of the tollway.

      I'd also recommend Houston's veggie burger.

      Last time I was there was last summer, I believe that Uptown Bar & Grill (McKinney & Fairmount) makes a homemade vegie burger

          I will second this one! It is a spicy (but not too spicy) black bean burger that's great with their homemade sweet potato chips and fresh root beer. YUMMY!

            Capitol Pub also makes a homemade one, I remember thinking it was a black bean style one. Fries alongside are delicious.

              My SO is flexitarian and loves Twisted Root's veggie burger enough not to share it with me.

            Beware of the veggie burgers at Cosmic Cafe and Idle Rich. Both used to be homemade and spectacular, but the last time I had each of them they had been changed to frozen Gardenburger patties on crappy buns. Huge disappointment.

              Tried teh Veggie Burger at "The Counter" in Plano, It rocks! The veggie patty is quite tasty and you can make your own burger with toppings according to your liking. Here is the link

                Spiral Diner has the best veggie burger in both Dallas and Fort Worth. Their web link is www.spiraldiner.com

                  I realize parts of this are old, but the veggie burger at Spiral is a Sunshine Burger that you can buy at Whole Foods.
                  I found this out after making a Sunshine Burger for a friend of mine and she was shocked that it was her beloved burger from Spiral.

                  Ive tried most of the ones suggested and Houstons is still my all time favorite. Hands down

                    Dream Cafe and Trinity Hall also have good veggie burgers but i have no idea who makes fresh ones. I couldnt see myself going to a fancy place like houstons just for a veggie burger though...

                      Central Market's cafe has a great veggie burger that is made in-house. It's huge and quite tasty.

                        For non-GardenBurger/Morningstar Farms veggie burgers:

                        Houston's has been very good, but undependable on the last few visits - also, quite expensive.

                        Cafe Express (Mockingbird and Uptown locations) has been consistently good on multiple occasions.

                        Was recently impressed by the veggie burger at Twisted Root in Deep Ellum - but have only tried it once.

                        If I had to choose one, I'd probably would go with Cafe Express - they also offer good whole wheat buns, a variety of condiments, and sweet potato fries.
