I love this place, my kind of restaurant!! – This is a great place, my best friend took me here for dinner. The sweet potato chips, amazing! Im not a big burger fan but this was probably the best I have had in a while. It is such a cool atmosphere, definitely one that I will be coming back to.
Nickle & dime us! – After all the raves about this place I had to check it out. Yes the burger is tasty, and the fries.... but EVERYTHING is freaking EXTRA.... cheese, guac, mushrooms, fries!!! I am surprised they didn't charge for the bun and the ketchup! If you are not a fan of being center of attention when they call you order which could be "HotLips Houlihan" or some other character from an old sitcom you may find it amusing... otherwise, embarrassing.
They also have weird rules about what door you can enter to place the order and another door to pick up the order!! With all this craziness and extra charges I will GLADLY walk over to ANGRY DOG and BE SERVED at my table and not be charged for everything and have an even BETTER BURGER AND FRIES! And hey... good thing Dallas has lots of options in this realm of greasy goodness.
Good food – The food is good but a bit pricey to me. It can be a bit noisy during the busy times but most places are. I really like the decor. Guess I'm still a "hair-band' junky at heart! :)
Great Burger! – Great Burger choices -- crowded and noisy at lunch
Good burgers but service needs to be improved upon – I like the burgers. They are meaty and juicy and they taste really good. The only problem I have is with the waitstaff. They seem bored and rude and looks like they just can't wait for me to finish and get out of there. If you can ignore the staff, it really does taste good and it's worth a shot.
Yum! – Best burger ever! I recommend the buffalo with jalapeno, blue cheese and bacon along with the fried pickles. Plus they called me Penelope Cruz-fun fun place!
Overpriced food ,Rude staff, Music was too loud – My wife and I went into Twisted Root after seeing it on DDD. and boy were we dissapointed big time!
1. Parking - pay 2 bucks to park in their parking lot (5 bucks on weekends) or pay a meter. Aside from that the parking lot looks like a garbage dump; trash and broken bottles EVERYWHERE...so be careful if you do go there to not get a flat.
2. Staff - Extremely rude, not helpful at all...Heck, they had no idea what they were doing....lol
3. Food - way overpriced for what you get....Where to begin....Lets see for starters the onion strings are terrible. They give you thin measly strips of onion and the batter just falls right off it..Total fail
The fries were ok at best....Just your basic pre-packaged curly fries....nothing special
Fried pickles had a real sour taste to them, wouldn't recommend them.
The fried green beans are "ok"
Now, for the burgers....
The burgers were again "ok" at best.......Not really flavorful at all and kinda dry......My wife has a blu cheese burger and all it was; was blu cheese salad dressing on top of a patty...Not a REAL blu cheese burger...
I had a cheddar burger and same thing, just "ok"
Way way way way way overpriced for what you get......kinda sad really
4. Atmosphere - loud music, bumper stickers all over the walls....Looked kinda cool..
Music was way to loud, everyone was complaining about it.....Gave both of us a headache
** oh yeah almost forgot these guys charge gratuity without asking you, even if its for one person!!
In conclusion if you want to go out and have a burger and see downtown dallas go to the ANGRY DOG...its right down the street from twisted root and much better prices/quality all around.
Be prepared to fight. – The location I visited was in downtown Dallas.
This place has a sprit of Satan about it. Christians - be warned. You will not like it here, and if you do and think you are a Christian, then chances are you need to check yourself cause the enemy has neutralized you.
Here are some details from my experince:
Parking - I'm not sure what the sketchy guy across the street was yelling about when I was getting out of the metered spot I parked in - but it still had 37 minutes on the meter and I thought that would be enough time and I just ignored him. I don't appreciate people yelling unintelligible things to me - not a great way to welcome your customers. Red Flag #3. #2 was having toruble finding this place on my garmin and 1 was the websites history that states this place was started in part by a rude worker cursing at a customer.
#4 was the obnoxiously loud music which only exacerbated my wife's headache. The wait in line was too long - I felt truly sorry for the customers who came in after us - after the rush. I only had 2 people in front of me - 10 minute wait. But when I left there was a line out the door.
They did not properly advertise their meat patty selection - such as ostrich and stuff.
The order taker got the order wrong - I got 2 burgers, one of them being a double - rather than 3 single patty burgers. The guy handing otu the food was nice about that though - he looks very mellow - like he's not unfamiliar with other twisted roots (and/or leaves).
The place was a downtown bar - like the kind I used to go clubbing at. Not very friendly and you have to fight to get your due. Fight for a clean table, the restroom, to be heard, your order, your way in, your parking, etc. Not a great place to take kids.
Food was OK but the sides were too greasy. I agree with most of the lower star reviews on the food quality. I like home made food, but I could do 2 burger ans 5 sides for way less than $32 at home and be of the same or better quality (I'm a good cook though).
Alas, because of that Satanic spirit which I didn't recognize until later, you couldn't pay me to go back.
