Love their fish tacos! Tuesdays you can get fish tacos for just $2, so it's a great way to meet up with friends and hang out inexpensively. Grilled and fried are both delish!

We really like this loud, little sports dive. The sandwiches are great, but the burgers are the stars. I've tried several, and they've all been good.

It's a bar like casual place. I've NEVER had a burger here because I ordered the brisket tacos and am hooked. The meat is so tender and juicy and the fresh slice of avocado makes it divine. I am getting hungry now just thinking about it. Order the onion rings with Peace Sauce, can't go wrong with this order. Also, cheap!! And want to be super cheap??? Go there on Tuesday for 1/2 price Tacos.... you heard me.... it's like 1.50 for one of these awesome tacos.

In need of a good burger, gave Peace Burger a try for lunch. Service was prompt, mostly empty around 12:45p. Ordered the signature Peace Burger, loaded with poblano and jalapeno peppers, guac and monterey jack cheese and a side of O Rings. Burger was good, combinations worked well together, but the size of the meat was a bit too skimpy for my taste. Call me a purist, but the meat is what a great burger is all about, this one was all about all add-ons, not the meat. While the O Rings are touted as being made in house, they did not measure up to reviews I previously read. They were cut too large, 2+ inches, the outside batter was thinner than the onion itself, it did not stick to the ring, ended up with a gloppy, greasy mess that did not work, not recommended. Overall, middle to side of the road experience, but the ditch is too close to make this a repeat road trip.

Peace Burger (now in its second location - the original location being around the corner in the same strip center) has sort of a split personality. On one hand, it strives to be a surfing dive bar, with lots of surf decals and swag on the walls. On the other hand, it wants to be a sports bar, with lots of baseball pennants and swag, most emphasizing the Boston Red Sox. On the OTHER other hand, it is a burger bar - one the first in this area of Grapevine/Southlake.

Unfortunately, it doesn't do all of these things well.

The surfing and sports themes clash a bit. Either one is great, they just need to pick a theme and really run with it.

The burger bar started out with pretty decent fare, but now the bar has been raised with lots of area competition - such as Jake's (Grapevine), Twisted Root (Bedford), Kincaid's and Snuffer's (Southlake), to mention just three. A new In-N-Out Burger is coming in Summer 2013, almost directly across the street. While that's a different experience, it will surely give Peace Burger a run for the money.

This self-proclaimed dive bar (it's on their menu and web page), features a burger-centric menu. The signature Peace Burger (peppers, guac, and monterrey jack) and the Hippie Burger (a bean patty with similar toppings) and joined by 8 other variations - 10 in all but nothing particularly unique, except maybe the ultra-spicy and aptly-named Hell Burger. Hot dogs, tacos, one salad, and various sandwiches round out the menu. Pretty basic stuff and all done adequately, but with inconsistent quality. Maybe that's what they think a dive bar should be, but anyone who has a favorite dive knows they go there because the food and drinks are always good.

Sides include the usual - fries, tater tots, and onion rings. On our last visit, the onion rings did not live up to their description of being "crispy on the outside, soft on the inside". They were a bit on the greasy side, with very little batter and thick cut onion centers. It felt like they rushed out that order. (That's cause the waitress got our order wrong and mistakenly brought out tots instead of the rings.)

With competition heating up, Peace Burger needs to step up their game. (For instance, if this wants to be an outpost for ex-pat Red Sox fans, then they could play that up on the menu with some Boston-centric items.) We've been here a half-dozen times or so and have had sort of mixed experiences. Sometimes, it's pretty good, other times, just so-so.

Peace Burger's web page lists "Locations" (plural), even though there's currently just the one. Maybe they see growth in their future. But since the "urban burger bar" trend has come to the burbs, this is the time to focus on what they do well and emphasize that. I'd hate to see Peace Burger disappear, but they're just not as unique as they once were.
