Burger Joy at Maple & Motor, Dallas

Finally made it over here:

LK is a regular, so she knew that we'd miss the line that normally stretches out the door by heading over on a Sunday afternoon.

Now, order at the counter – then sit down and play nice. We went straight for the burgers:

We did a couple of the the Pepper Jack Cheeseburgers with Bacon, and Grilled Jalapeños – an excellent addition. The patty is hand formed from a fatty mix of beef and the bun – particularly good – crispy-toasted.

The Tots were good, but the Fries were rockin'.

The place has a fun, dive-y vibe. Along with Sweet Tea, they also offer Jolly Rancher Tea – interesting.

Then there are these things…

It's a "Gob." (Pronounced 'gobb' not 'jobe' for all you Arrested Development fans out there.) Whipped Butter-cream between two Devils Food Cake rounds. Come on – you gotta do it!

I'll be back for more of these delicious burgers, and am intrigued by the Fried Baloney and the Flat Top Brisket Sandwiches as well. Another benefit of stopping by M&M is that it is across the street from Elliott's Hardware, which is quite simply Tim Allen quality crack for any red-blooded male – bonus!
