Twisted Root Burger Co. – Arlington, Texas
Twisted Root Arlington is located less than a mile from Cowboy’s Stadium (or whatever Jerry is calling it these days), and close to Six Flags, The Ballpark, and the historic downtown area.
Near the Ballpark and close to historic downtown, people would be lining up for their burgers even if they were not as centrally located. If you have never tried a gourmet burger, you can discover it at the Twisted Root. They have beef, turkey, or veggie burgers, but the toppings make these burgers totally unique.
They have a large patio connected to their tailgating-themed dining area by oversized, glass garage doors. Come in and sit at their Winnebago bar, or pull up a cooler/booth seat in the back. Named the best burger in Arlington, they’re a favorite of locals and tourists alike.
With high-quality made-to-order burgers, a ‘come as you are’ environment and a strange reverence for Chuck Norris, there’s no place else quite like Twisted Root. Way back before ‘gourmet burgers’ was a thing, Chefs Jason Boso & Quincy Hart decided to build a restaurant around half-pound, fresh ground burgers with a menu that allowed customers to build their own burgers with a list of crazy and inventive toppings. The two met in culinary school, after jobs in stock brokerages and telephone line repair.
After paying their dues working the line at The Four Seasons & Pappas Bros, Jason & Quincy finally opened Twisted Root Burger Co. in the Deep Ellum neighborhood of Dallas, Texas in 2006. Twisted Root appeared on the second season of Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives with Guy Fieri (2009) and suddenly Twisted Root was a dining destination in Dallas.
While Twisted Root Burger Co. has seen incredible growth, Jason & Quincy have stuck to their roots and their senses of humor, using a hands-on approach to high-quality, fresh food in a casual atmosphere with tons of personality.
1/2 Pound Beef Patties
That’s TWICE the size of your “typical” burger joint’s burger. Just sayin’.
Chef Owned & Operated
You’ll still find Jason and Quincy in stores choppin’ onions and kissing babies.
They source our fresh buns from a local bakery. They like to keep it in the family where they can.
Toppings Made In House
They get to the restaurant bright and early every day to prep the produce, hand batter the strings, mash the guacamole, and more. None of that preserved, packaged crap.
House Made Condiments & Custom Pickles
They’ve created their very own unique condiment and pickle recipes, and they’re good on anything. Seriously, anything.
The restaurant has a wide variety of cheese, from Danish blue to goat, many kinds of salsa like guacamole or pineapple, mushrooms, chilis, prosciutto, and, of course, bacon. Be ready to eat your fill, and do not be ashamed if you cannot finish your meal. Be sure to leave some room for their famous adult shakes made with Baileys or Amaretto.
The food is only half the fun; the other half comes from the fabulous décor that consists of a vintage Winnebago that serves as a bar, cooler benches, and various cars and motor parts.
