As you read this, D Magazine’s devoted team, outfitted in elastic-waist pants and armed with scorecards, is on the prowl for the best burger in town. (Check back in March for the results of Burger Madness.) But no matter what we say, there’s no denying that the original Burger House in Snider Plaza has a long list of devotees, many of them high-falutin’ types like Angie Harmon and The Bachelor’s Chris Harrison, who have been known to profess their love for this 55-year-old Dallas institution in the pages of a newspaper or magazine. Said pages then get tacked on the wall of fame that gives patrons seated at rickety old picnic tables something to read, not the least of which is a mention in the January 1998 issue of D, in which we named those crispy matchstick fries the best in Dallas. The famous salt that seasons the equally famous fries is also sprinkled on fat, golden onion rings. But when we visit Burger House, whether to dine in or take back to the hungry mouths at the office, we go old school: double cheeseburgers with grilled onions on sesame-seed buns and multiple orders of Jack’s impossible-to-resist fries. Sure, it’s a heart attack waiting to happen. But we’ll die smiling.
