2. Keller's Drive-In
East Dallas

Sure, there are fancier burgers in Dallas. And there are more expensive burgers in Dallas. But you’ll be hard-pressed to find a more compelling reason to eat in your car than a trip to Keller’s. As our intrepid burger critic discovered, this 71-year-old institution serves diner-style burgers from another era. Stay in your car, wait for the staff to take your order, then gobble down the fan-favorite No. 5 Special—this double-meat cheeseburger with all the fixings can be yours for less than $3.
How to book: Stop by for drive-in service.

5. Town Hearth
Design District

Chef Nick Badovinus plied you with burgers for years at Off Site Kitchen. Those days are over, but you can still cop a Badovinus burger at his upscale Town Hearth steakhouse. Rather than a simple burger, however, here you’re working with a hefty $24 Wagyu cheeseburger befitting the chandelier-laden location. Add bacon and a fried egg for a few bucks more, and do your best to appear genteel as juices and yolk run down your chin.
How to book: Call 214-761-1617 for take-out and reservations.
