Dallas: Retro Burger Charm at Dairy-Ette

AHT: Dallas J. Kenji López-Alt 12 comments

Drive up to the all-caps neon side and pull under the carhop awning across the street from Bishop Lynch High School and you'll find yourself at the Dairy-Ette, a '50s-era burger joint that has changed little in over 50 years of continual service. It's the kind of spot you can imagine Archie and Jughead pulling into in their jalopy. Betty and Veronica might tag a long for the homemade root beer and floats. More

Irving, TX: Old-fashioned Burgers Still Hit the Spot at Griff's

Ewan Macdonald 18 comments

With no website, much less an advertising budget, Griff's relies on a mixture of word-of-mouth and their somewhat creepy mascot "Griffy" to lure patrons into what are quite often crumbling A-frame restaurants. Once inside, though, one will discover burgers as they used to be: juicy, cheap, filling, rough, fast, basic—and delicious. More
