“Classic Texas place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2013

Burger House is one of the main reasons I liked going to Dallas to visit my friends during the five years they lived there. In fact, it's probably the only thing I miss about visiting there.
The burgers here are admittedly much more like fast food than you might expect, but they're hardly flavorless like the chains.

“Best Burger (and fries) in Dallas!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2013

There are two secrets to the flavor of the food at The Burger House:
1. The grill has been "seasoned" by 30+ years of cooking.
2. The special salt (available for purchase) is liberally sprinkled on the meat and fries.

Don't expect anything but a classic Park Cities local hangout. There is enough dining space on the inside (Executive Dining Room) for about six skinny people but there are also covered picnic tables on the heated space outside and outdoor dining in the rear. I would also recommend the milk shakes made with "hand dipped" real ice cream. i have been known to take one home for desert.

“Best Burgers and Fries in Dallas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2013 via mobile

Been going to Burger House for 35 years and three things are always consistent: burger and fries are perfection and the place is a total dive! Seriously, there are no better fries on the planet! Their special seasoning is so good, we buy it for our home and put it on eggs, hash browns, chicken, etc. Their patties are very thin so get a double if you're hungry. Shakes are very good, too. But do NOT expect a nice place, it is a dive. But for locals, that is part of the charm. Hope it never changes!

“Where's the beef?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2012 via mobile

I agree with many others on the fact that the burgers were very skimpy on the meat and not a good value. The fries were the skinny kind with a garlic/pepper seasoning salt. They were just right.

“Old Fashion Burgers and Fries”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2012

One of the best burgers in Dallas and their salt and pepper fries are delicious. Yes the atmosphere is pretty bad and it reminds you of a shack but it is a very friendly spot and it will make you return time after time.
