You know what this is?....
It's not just a Hamburger.
It's an Elk Burger, cooked to perfection, and served with a wonderful pile of fried onion stings. This kick-ass combination comes via a DFW area burger joint called The Twisted Root Burger Company. I've written about them before, after we discovered them on a road trip north of Fort Worth in the small town of Roanoke.
Since then, they've opened another location much closer to home. It's in Richardson, which is a suburb of Dallas. We tried the Buffalo Burger last month - which was awesome. On this visit, they had a new, "limited time only" item on the menu - the Elk Burger. The regular menu normally has Ostrich Burgers, Venison Burgers, and yes - they even have regular old beef hamburgers (which are great too).
Damn, it was tasty. We stopped by this weekend while we were out running errands. It made fighting the crowds for last minute Christmas Shopping worth it.
