We love to eat and we love great beers. Let us share with you our views on what Dallas has to offer in fine (and not so fine) dining and fine beers.
Dallas has few diversions other than eating, drinking and shopping.....and shopping does not interest us.
So we spend our time hopping from restaurant to restaurant and to every pub that we can find in search of the perfect meal and the perfect beer.
We randomly review restaurants and bars, dishes and beers at whim and give our brutally honest opinions of our findings. And while we concentrate on Dallas, we travel far and wide to sample cuisine from all regions of the country and beyond.

Heart Attack of the Month - Chili Cheeseburger
Chili Cheeseburger at Maple and Motor Burgers and Beer
Heartburn.....indegestion.....the creepers....call it what you will, this month's delight was a tough one to stomach (nudge, nudge).
Maple and Motor "A Grease-stained Tribute to Low Class Cool" is an increasingly popular burger joint located at....tah dah!....Maple and Motor (clever bastards). If asked (though I would not recommend it) they will readily admit that this is not a place to find healthy food. Their 1/3 pound beef patties are a wonderfully greasy blend of 70/30 beef. Their chili is made in house and is also rich, greasy and delicious. Their is really nothing super special about their burgers...just old fashioned, greasy, delicious burgers. Then why add the chili? Oh well, if you are going to be a bear, be a grizzly bear, right?
You are afraid that the burger may not sit well? Afraid of perhaps spending the afternoon on the porcelain throne? Well then you need to counterbalance it with the cheese covered tater tots. Not grizzly bear enough? My, you are an adventurer, Well then you need to add the bacon and jalapeno to the top of the cheezy goo and ranch dressing for dipping. If you are really lucky, the mass of cheese will counteract the effects of the chili and perhaps the worse side effect you will have is the dreaded acid reflux... but it is well worth the risk my friends. Wash it all down with an ice cold PBR and you have reached bubba nirvana. Enjoy.
