Burgers and beer are making a comeback. Wait, they never left.

Oh, Turtle Creek Village. How I have missed you so. I’ve spent many glorious calories on your turf. Phil Vacarro’s sumptuous Les Saisons. Chris Ward’s sexy Citizen. Monica Greene and Joanne Bondy’s delicious Ciudad D.F. I still miss Gene Street, Jr’s  sandwich shop and big Gene’s Good Eats.

It’s nice to see the center come back to life. There’s an East Hampton Sandwich Shop, a Tom Thumb, and a new Haystack Burgers and Barley. This is the second location for Jenny and Kevin Galvan. They debute the original Haystack in Richardson in 2013. I’ve visited the Richardson location several times and if it was around the corner from me, I’d be there more often. It’s quaint and personal. The burgers are topped with not-the-usual ingredients such as chili, grilled poblanos, and jalapeno escabeche. Fries and onion rings deserve meal-by-themselves status. Milkshakes? Oh, yes. And beer, 12 local draft beer and 50 American craft beers. They also offer a signature frozen cocktail my friend Kim sucks down way too fast: Maker’s Mark, orange juice, lemonade, and custom blended ice tea. The menu is suitable for vegetarians, kids, and offers some secret items you must ask for.
