If you are anything like me, then you pretty much know where all the good burger spots are in Dallas (and are always looking for new ones). And, if you’re like me then you have eaten at Twisted Root Burger Co. down on Commerce St. in Deep Ellum more times than you really care to admit. Pretty much everything on their menu is delicious, although I’m partial to the Cheddar Burger. (What can I say? I’m a creature of habit, folks!)
It seems the good folks behind the Food Network show Diners, Drive-Thrus & Dives caught wind of the little burger shop in Deep Ellum and filmed a feature on the place. On Monday, April 27 the world will get a chance to see what is so great about Twisted Root as Guy Fieri and his blonde, spiky hair will air their feature of Twisted Root Burger Co. on the show.
Hopefully the show will be a chance to showcase the great atmosphere of the joint–with its bare brick walls, bottle cap table tops and their affable employees. I always find great enjoyment in the anticipation for which film/television character name I get so I’ll know when my order is ready. So, I hope they showcase that little bit of fun as well.
And maybe, just maybe, it will attract more stars to the place other than Stallone, Matthew McConaughey and Penelope Cruz whose autographed pictures are hung with pride. True story, my brother came into town for a visit and I told him I would take him down to get a burger at Twisted Root. We placed our order, got our names and drinks and we sat at our table. As we sat there talking I noticed a guy sitting at the table behind us that looked vaguely familiar. Then it popped into my brain: KENNY LOGGINS! Yep, none other than Mr. Danger Zone was sitting directly behind my brother. I’m not sure how I survived that brush with greatness, but I was able to maintain and eat my burger.
If you don’t believe me or Guy Fieri on how great the place is I suggest you go down to 2615 Commerce Street, or their new location at 730 E. Campbell Road in Richardson and check it out for yourself. If you think I’m wrong, well…
