Dissatisfied with the quality of burger alternatives in town, talented chefs Quincy Hart, Jason Boso and Steve Thompson put their own twist on the American classic at Twisted Root Burger Co. Succulent meat, grilled and seasoned to perfection, are served with homemade sauces and pickles, and crispy sweet potato fries. To go with delicious varieties like Bacon Bomb and Big Tex are freshly-churned milkshakes and Root Beer floats. You can choose from the menu or build your own burger.
If the urge to eat out hits you while visiting Dallas, consider dining at Local, the popular eatery at Elm Street. You will simply love the experimental American dishes by chef and owner Tracy Miller, who ran a catering business from the spot for several years. Order the Champagne Slurry or one of the sumptuous wines, to wash down the Grilled Salmon or the Pork Tenderloin. The historical building, where the restaurant exists, was built in 1908 and housed the Boyd building. The restoration and the design have given it a look that will enhance your dining experience. The place should be easy to find since it is at the border of the Deep Ellum Area known for its musicians.

Kid's meals are available and be sure to save some room for the Bread Pudding or Sweet Potato Pecan Pie.

Once an old warehouse, this barbecue joint is a Downtown favorite for ribs, sliced beef and chopped beef sandwiches. Rustic tables and a comfortable Deep Ellum location make Baker's Ribs perfect for the downtown crowd. There is nothing fancy about the decor, but most serious BBQ eaters are more interested in the juicy, lean sliced beef as opposed to the wallpaper. The seasoned brisket and ribs are perfectly complemented by an array of side dishes. The chopped beef baked spuds are tasty too.
