Today we experienced a little piece of heaven…. And that heaven came in the form of a medium rare blessing on a classic egg bun.
This adventure led us to the well-known burger joint Hopdoody’s in Dallas.
Walking in, we immediate vibed with the atmosphere. We were promptly greeted by the kindest man who told us how the restaurant works. He led us through the menu and then showed us to the register where we could order our food. We both of course ordered grown folks drinks because that’s what grown folks do. lol
Anywho, after placing our order, we went and found a table close by the bar. Our waiter James came quickly after and gave us some yummy pickles to munch on as we waited.
*The time finally came* Our faces lit up like a child on Christmas Day when we saw our food come to the table. I had the Llano Poblano which is, angus beef, pepper jack cheese, roasted poblano chiles, apple-smoked bacon and chipotle mayo.
Christa had the Primetime burger that was Texas akaushi beef, brie cheese, truffle aioli, arugula, caramelized onions and steak sauce. We also decided to split a side of truffle fries which were topped with parmesan and fresh parsley.
If you have never been to Hopdoddy’s, please change your life and make a trip, it is well worth it. This is probably one of the best burgers I have ever had. They cook the burgers medium to medium-well, which is the way all burgers should be treated. The meat was not only juicy, but very well taken care of and not over seasoned. The toppings were fresh and did not over power the burger. It was a little messy, but we are in the great country…I mean state of Texas. If it aint on your shirt you aint doing it right. 😉
The Llano Poblano was everything you want in a taco, but on a burger. It could have had a bit more spiciness, but it was very good. If you really want to pay your respects to Texas, get the Primetime burger, it will give you the experience one can only have with food.
First off, what burger place in Dallas, Texas is putting Brie on the burger??? Hopdoddy’s thats who, and they did a heck of a job. It was well worth it. The truffle fries became the forgotten step child, but we came out of the food coma…eventually. When we came to, we dug into this fry mountain of awesomeness and didn’t want to return to reality. They were crispy, with the right amount of parmesan and parsley. The came with a side of truffle aioli to smother them in. We also decided to defy nature and dip the fries in chipotle ketchup, that they made with REAL SUGAR!
Thank you Hopdoddy’s for changing my life and thank you God for giving someone the idea to make Hopdoddy’s. We are forever grateful.
