Within the last couple of years, more and more burger places have started popping up all over Dallas. Good thing, too. If there's one thing people in Dallas like more than burgers, it's arguing about which place has the best.
Personally, I like Maple & Motor a lot more than most other places because of the ambiance, the food and the service.
The hole-in-a-wall burger joint located at -- you guessed it -- the intersection of Maple and Motor makes, pretty much indisputably, one of the best burgers in Dallas.
It's easy to understand why. Their offering is thick, juicy and greasy. And they give you plenty of options to add to your burger -- options that a lot of places don't offer.
But it's their bare-bones offering that really is their best. A simple cheeseburger with bacon and fries and a soda -- it's the best thing on Maple & Motor's menu. Plus, they serve RC Cola, and you can't get any better than that.
Or can you? The burger here is incredibly flavorful, and -- in a touch you won't see at a lot of places -- the bun comes toasted and slathered with buttery goodness. In other words? It's served the way a burger should be served.
Really: If a burger does not slip out of your hands when you're grabbing it, then you shouldn't eat it.
Maple & Motor doesn't have this problem with their burgers.
And their fries are pretty great, too, served were perfectly fried and crispy. Oh, and their dessert a whoopie cream pie really finishes a meal off right.
You've just got to put in some work to get these treats. The inside of Maple and Motor is small and a bit of a dive, but the lunch line always goes out the door. Don't let it fool you: You'll be in and out of line quickly enough, and you'll eat your way out of the joint before you know it.
And you'll love it .
So don't listen to your friend who says he knows the best burger place in Dallas. Unless, that is, your friend says Maple & Motor.
Eat here and you'll be convinced.
