Chef Chris Ward’s New Lunch Menu at The Mercury: Burgers and Chicken Fried Steak!

mercuryChef Chris Ward has just added a list of burgers and sandwiches to his lunch menu at The Mercury. Burgers are the star followed by muffulettas, pastrami dips, and fried chicken skins with cream gravy.  One of the best versions of chicken fried steaks I’ve eaten in Dallas was made by Ward. Now he serves it as a sandwich. Makes me wonder if he’s test driving a new concept to open. Go. Eat. Report. Full menu below.

    “not his restaurant anymore”? Is that when they started doing stupid things like hiring Bob to run the front end which lasted about 20 minutes? Just curious and who owns the joint now?

    I just had lunch at the Mercury last week and WOW what amazing food! Especially the Fire Burger and the Tex Mex Burger! I have never had a burger that taste so good without costing an arm and a leg! Everyone needs to try the Chicken Fried Steak Sandwich. My friend had it and says they have never tasted anything so incredible!!!! I give Mercury 5 Stars on the New Burger Menu! Oh don’t forget to try the Portobello Fries Unbelievable!!!!!
