Best Burger 2017

Rodeo Goat

You won’t find any ordinary burgers at Rodeo Goat. The closest to a traditional burger is the Royale With Cheese, which consists of American cheese, chopped onions, jalapeño bacon, mustard and a spiked ketchup, while the Terlingua shows more of Rodeo Goat’s creative side with havarti cheese, brisket chili, corn chips, onion and garlic-herb mayo. The burgers are so delicious even Dallas caught wind and opened one of its own.

Righteous Foods

Perhaps a clean-eating concept is not the most obvious choice for best burger in Fort Worth, but let’s not forget that the chef behind Righteous Foods is Lanny Lancarte - a 20-year veteran of the local food scene. This writer tried the Niman Ranch Beef Burger numerous times and took friends and guests to do the same in order to confirm that her taste buds were correct. Smoked gouda, sumac aioli, house pickles and kumato (a Spanish tomato) join with a juicy patty for a burger that’s downright delicious and doesn’t taste the least bit pretentious.
