Best Burger in Dallas - no contest – I moved to Dallas a year ago and have made it my mission to find the best burger spots in the city. Angry Dog is easily the winner. I'm not really into the bar atmosphere, especially the smoke, and Angry Dog is smoky and noisy. Those might warrant strikes against the place but I only go here for takeout and, if you have the best burger in a city as big as Dallas (with so many great burger joints), you get 5 stars.
The burgers are perfectly seasoned, taste like the meat has been freshly ground, and they don't mind cooking a burger rare, which is how i like 'em. The grilled onions don't come standard and they're worth asking for. The burger is a 1/2 pounder - big but not overwhelming - and it comes with good fries. They can be a little cold by the time I get home, which is a minor complaint.
I've also had the "Angry Dog", which violates my rule for hot dogs in that you can't really eat it with your hands. If that doesn't bother you, it's great. Lots of chili and cheese and other good stuff (like those grilled onions).
The service has been quick every time I've gone.
I've noticed a ton of fake reviews (sound like ads - only one review by the reviewer - always 5 stars) in the Dallas Citysearch pages and have decided to start doing my own reviews to combat this a little bit. It is not surprising that Angry Dog's reviews all look legitimate because their food is actually that good. I'm not really a bar person, but I imagine it's a pretty cool place if you don't mind the noise and smoke.
If you like burgers, you must try Angry Dog. If you like chili dogs and don't mind the knife and fork, that's probably a must try as well.
best burger and cheese fries – If you are looking for a very tasty burger this is the place to go. My boyfriend and I visit the dog at least once every two weeks. Whenever we have company this is the place we take them. The burgers are juicy and have so much flavor. They also are a very good size for what you pay . We tend to visit many of the number one spots on citysearch to check them out for ourselves and the dog has defiantly proven time and time again why they are at the top year after year. We have noticed that sitting at the bar has better service than sitting at a table. The bartenders and staff remember us when we come in and are always friendly and tend to us without being asked. They care about their customers unlike other places we have visited (twisted root)! If you like cheese fries theirs are excellent with a ton of cheese. Check em out you won't be dissapointed!!
BEWARE!! EATING HERE WILL COST YOU $100.00 EXTRA FOR PARKING. – BEWARE! Didn't have a chance to eat. Parking lot scammers booted my car the minute I walked away to get change. $100.00 fine. BEWARE!
Best burger in Dallas – Angry Dog has had the best burger in Dallas for many years. They make it just the way you want it - no pile of stuff on the side you don't want on your burger. And definitely use their spice blend on your fries. Mmm Mmm.
A Dallas Classic – Go with the burger, you won't be disappointed! Angry Dog is a great lunch spot and also a good happy Hour hang out. Sadly Deep Ellum feels dead, but once you get inside the Angry Dog feels the same as always.
One of the best places in Deep Ellum area – There aren't many places in Deep Ellum that are worth going to anymore. But if you are in the area, try Angry Dog. The food is delish and the service is pretty good. I've never had to wait for a table. Angry Dog is dark and has a tavern feel. Its a good way to start a night of drinking in that area. Its not one of my favorite places, but I would say it is a Dallas must. 8-15-08
Best burger and fries! – Very good and simple burgers. I would definitely rate this place as one of the best burger places in Dallas I am a big fries lover and I can truly say that Angry Dog has the BEST fries I have ever had. They even stayed crisp after I finished my meal.
Bar food done right – How many post-beatles-at-dada dinners have I had at the dog? How many root beers (awesome root beers by the way) have my kids downed there? How many post-divorce dates ended up there? (I dunno, but I married one of 'em!) Who knows. All I can say is that the grilled tuna sandwich with pasta salad is something I'll re-live in my nursing home days. Yum.
Wonderful Burgers - Too Many Young Children – The burgers at Angry Dog are truly the best in Dallas. However, the one complaint we have, and I have heard expressed by many people, is that this place is crawling with babies and small children. This is not normally a problem in a burger joint EXCEPT THIS PLACE IS A BAR IN DEEP ELLUM that happens to have fabulous burgers! It is ultimately a bar for over 21 adults and certainly not a place one would expect young families or an environment young children should be exposed to. There just seems to be no limit in this town where people feel it is acceptable to bring their young children...even a bar.
great burgers! – i got the burger and it was one of the best ones i've ever eaten. fries were avg, but crispy. for some reason, the hot dog we ordered came out soggy - not just the bun, but the dog itself also. the meat felt mushy. i don't know if that's the style, but it wasn't good at all. just order the burger and you'll be fine.
