Oh Gawd I hope not! But it very well could be, I have been stuck in Carolina (and a few other places) for the last 5 years and the only semi decent burger place here is the way over-rated Five Guys. The closest place with good burgers around here is D.C.

We crossed Chip's off our list a couple of years ago. BUT, something happened there - we heard that things had changed - and, sure enough, they have. The crowds are back and the place is better than it ever was. Still not that best-burger-I-ever-ate-in-my-whole-life like you get at Dutch's, but it's back to being a reliable choice if you're eating in the neighborhood.

Milo's when Scotty is working the kitchen makes a damn good burger. His special fry seasoning that only he uses is great too.

You like the Milo's burger? Really? Reminded me of the cafeteria at my high school ... maybe.

I went to Chip's a few weeks ago, and was pleasantly surprised. Much better than I remembered.

I agree with Chips. I don't know why it fell out of favor among the burgerscenti but the meat is consistently fresh and the buns are great. Nothing fancy. Maybe that is their problem. Simple.

you don't get much more simple than 110, but most of us seem to love their burger.

Yes, new owners at chips, they are doing great. They cleaned the place up, added a full bar and patio. Their bottled Beer is the COLDEST I've ever had in Dallas. Even have Gluten Free buns and dedicated fryer for fries. (wife has celiacs) The burger isn't my favorite, BUT they have a Santa Fe Chicken sandwich that is unreal and goes great with an iced cold one. Jalapeno cheese bread, monterey cheese, chicken, caramalized onions and jalapenos, it is awesome.

and its all about the milos patty melt....and if you aren't in a burger mood get the cheese fries (jalepenos and bacon incl) or their chicken wings.

yea, there's nothing like biting into a burger and realizing it's filled with cheese. Barcadia on Knox Henderson makes a pretty good one too with ...service and crowd is always a little iffy though

Because of the referrals here, I went to Barley House to try the Juicy Lucy.

Very good.

Then I went to Jake's.

Off the charts.

The fact that my co-worker ordered a salad was a little bit intolerable, but my burger was even better than I remembered.
