Have you ever been to a restaurant and think to yourself, “why haven’t I been here before?” It doesn’t happen often to me, but once in a blue moon I find a restaurant that really hits a homerun for me.
Let me introduce you to your new favorite burger joint, Dugg Burger.
I visited their Casa Linda location on a weekday night and didn’t know what to expect. I wasn’t familiar with their concept upon arriving and was given a quick run down once I entered. The concept of Dugg Burger is simply, but genius.
By digging out the top portion of the bun, Dugg Burger is able to reverse the burger-building process. Rather than starting with the patty and then adding toppings, the Dugg team fills the “dugg out” bun with toppings chosen by guests in a build-as-you-go fashion. The burger patty is then added hot-off-the-grill after all ingredients are selected, giving customers a perfectly customized burger. This process eliminates the wait that is customary at other burger restaurants and ensures every burger is exactly as the guest wants.
After checking out, you get to choose your own toppings. I love that I wasn’t limited to only a couple because I wanted to try them all. Dugg Burger had everything you could ever want on a burger like bacon, caramelized onions, sautéed mushrooms and fire roasted jalapenos. But there is also a Lucky 13 topping that changes frequently. Dugg is always on the lookout for great topping ideas and encourages guests to submit their Lucky 13 suggestions.
Since they start cooking your burger once you order, your burger is done by the time you pile on your toppings. I love this feature because I hate waiting for food, especially when I’m starving. I’m not going to lie when I say I completely destroyed the cheeseburger. I blamed my pregnancy but in actuality, the burger was just that good and I couldn’t let it go to waste. Before trying Dugg Burger, I was told that I must try their bread pudding. I didn’t think much of it until the owner told me that the bread pudding is actually made from all of the remains from the bread scooped out of the bun. Not only are they resourceful but the bread pudding is a family recipe that dates back almost 50 years.
Lucky me, the night I went they were offering free bread pudding when you ordered a meal. How can anyone pass up free dessert? I can’t even though I was completely stuffed from the cheeseburger.
Every single crumb was consumed and I would do it all over again in a heart beat. The bread pudding is not to be missed, especially with that warm caramel sauce drizzled on top.
I’m already planning my next visit to Dugg Burger. I visited their located in Casa Linda but they also opened one in Plano located at 4701 West Park Blvd. # 110 (Park and Preston). Stop in for a burger and fries, you won’t be disappointed with the food or the price.
