For the second installment of my Dallas Dining Under $20, we visited Twisted Root Burger Co. on SMU Blvd. It is a full bar and restaurant with a great patio and super fun atmosphere. All opinions are my own and I was in no way compensated for this review.

Twisted Root Burger Co. is a local Dallas mini-chain that rocks. They have specialty burgers for $7.99 and regular hamburgers for $5.49, game meats and buffalo burgers for $8.99, turkey and veggie burgers for $5.99, and a host of great sides for $2.99 and under. Friends of ours decided the new SMU location would be a great place for World Cup parties, and they were right. I had eaten at the Deep Ellum location, but hadn’t visited the new one until the last USA game of the World Cup. We had so much fun and the food was wonderful. If only the USA team had advanced…

Jed had a bacon cheeseburger with fries, and said it was delicious.

I had a turkey burger with goat cheese and a side of fried pickles. The goat cheese was awesome and the fried pickles were perfection.

The Twisted Root Philosophy: Three chefs, sick of eating frozen and factory-fabricated burgers, opened a real burger joint and make everything from scratch. Fresh meat patties, fresh-cut fries and sweet potato chips, homemade ice-cream, homemade pickles and homemade Root Beer…even homemade ketchup, mustard and BBQ sauce! It’s slap-yo-momma good!


The price is right and the burgers are tasty. What more could you ask for?

What is your favorite burger joint?

  1. I don’t really have a favorite burger joint – but fried pickles and goat cheese on my burger makes me wish I lived in Dallas!

    Thanks for sharing. I have never heard of this place and I’m pretty sure they don’t have them in my neck of the woods – but I’m gonna keep my eyes open for them now ;o)

  2. Those burgers look and sound awesome! mouth watering.. I prefer a bean or veggie burger personally, there is a Frankie & Benny’s chain near us, and they make a really delicious mediterranean veg burger which I order every time!

  3. YUM! There are so many burger places in NYC, it’s hard to pick a favorite. Fast food burgers I like Shake Shack, otherwise, my fave is a Black Label burger from Minetta Tavern. It’s aged beef with carmelized onions. Out of this world!!
