Dallas Burger

I was recently watching an episode of Kelsey’s Essentials on the Cooking Channel.  She went to one of Bobby Flay’s restaurants – Bobby’s Burger Palace.  In this episode, Bobby showed Kelsey how they make a burger there.  More specifically, he showed here the Dallas Burger.  After watching, I had to make my own version at home since there is not one Bobby’s Burger Palace near me.

So the key items found on a Dallas Burger include cheese, bbq sauce, coleslaw, and pickles.  Now at Bobby’s Burger Palace, you can also order any burger “crunchified” which means it gets a layer of potato chips added on to it. See why I had to do this!  It was delicious and I definitely think it is a fun way to dress up a regular old burger.

On other tip that Bobby shared on the show was to always use a ground beef that is 80/20 for burgers.  You need to have one with enough fat to make your burger juicy!  At the Bobby’s Burger Palace, they cook their burgers on a flat top grill. I opted for a bbq grill to cook these on instead.  The weather is too nice not to be grilling outdoors.

  • 2 lbs. ground beef that is 80/20
  • garlic salt
  • pepper
  • 6 hamburger buns
  • 6 slices of cheese I used cheddar
  • bbq sauce I used Famous Dave's Sweet and Zesty
  • dill pickles
  • 1 lb. deli coleslaw
  • lays potato chips


  • Shape your ground beef into 6 patties. Make in indention in the middle of each patty. This helps the patty to end up cooking nice and flat, rather than getting all puffy in the center.
  • Liberally season both sides of the patty with garlic salt and pepper. If the garlic salt scared you, just go with regular salt.
  • Grill the patties until fully cooked.
  • Add the slices of cheese to the patties and allow to melt. Remove patties from the grill.
  • Assemble burgers on the buns and top with the remaining ingredients.

  2. 80/20 does make a really tasty burger! I’m going to steal that “crunchified” idea too! Thanks for sharing.
