There’s a new burger joint coming to Dallas – but this isn’t your average fast-food spot. BurgerFi is a fancy, New Age kind of burger joint. For starters, it only uses the top 1 percent of beef produced in the United States. More interestingly, though, it’s an eco-friendly restaurant – something that fast-food restaurants are almost always not.
“Everything is made from scratch,” says owner Brandt Stravlo in a statement. “There is no freezer in the building. The decor and products, from chairs to the ketchup packets, are made of recycled materials. We are excited to introduce BurgerFi to Dallas.”
The franchise has already opened several Texas locations, including The Woodlands, San Antonio, and nearby Arlington — but this is its first outpost in Dallas proper. The new restaurant will open at 5456 E. Mockingbird Lane on Monday, June 25.
The 2,824-square-foot location will seat about 70 inside and 20 on the outdoor patio. The restaurant will reflect BurgerFi’s modern, eco-friendly philosophy with an environmentally friendly design, including chairs made from recycled bottles, recycled-paper countertops, sustainable lumber walls, and an energy-efficient fan.
There’s yet another reason for eco-warriors to love BurgerFi: It’s the first burger restaurant to carry the Beyond Burger, a 100 percent plant-based protein patty that’s supposed to taste exactly like meat. (It’s similar to the Impossible Burger.)
Of course, if you’d prefer the real thing, there are plenty of beefy options. BurgerFi’s most popular burger is The CEO, a double -Wagyu-and-brisket-blend burger with homemade candied bacon-tomato jam, truffle aïoli, and aged Swiss cheese.
BurgerFi also serves 100 percent all-natural Vienna beef hotdogs (served Texas-style or New York-style), hand-cut French fries, double-battered onion rings, homemade sauces, frozen-custard concretes and shakes, natural sugar-cane soda, and local craft beer.
BurgerFi will be open Sunday through Thursday, 11 am to 10 pm, and Friday and Saturday, 11 am to 11 pm.
