PM sent - I just saw your post today, sorry. We were at Bridgeport this past Sunday. A bunch of people in our group are headed to Clayton, OK mid-November. I probably won't be making it out there this time, but hope to get out at least one more time before it gets really cold.
Need to jump in the truck and head down to Kincaid's! Kincaid's is the perfect place to go if you want a good burger with a laid-back environment. The burger's are cooked perfectly and purely delicious. I have been going to Kincaid's for as long as I can remember and haven't found any resturaunt that can top it. They also have amazing milkshakes. Strawberry, chocolate, or vanilla milkshakes go perfectly with a burger and fries. Their fried okra is also a hit. Overall the experience is a great one and I recommend it for all.
It's located in an old Grocery store where you still walk to the back counter to order, the atmosphere is totally unique today!
There used to be a place on East Lancaster that had great burgers. I think the name was Tooters. They would have big balls of hamburger meat stacked up and they'd throw them down on the grill, real hard, to form the patties. The burgers were delicious.
Not sure if they're still there. I think they were only open for lunch. Edit: From a reliable source, they closed.
Al's drive-in in Arlington used to be good when they were still a drive-in. Not sure how good the burgers are since moving to a strip center quite a few years ago.
I was at UTA in`1979-82 (Alright, do some quick math, so carry the one 2time2 is 4, let's see that would make me about 50?) and would haul the girlfriend down there for a burger, fries and a drink on a Friday once classes let out.. What an pitiful look'n place it was I think that's what made us think the burgers were so damn good, but they were definitely better tasting than the building looked. If, the cook of Al's burger's sat one of their burger's down on the counter next to one of Kincaid's burgers, and they did so One-hundred times?? I would pick up a Kincaid's burger about ninety times out of a hundred, I believe??
I have only been to the Al's in the bottom of that huge gully there in the strip center once... I don't know if they are any better OR worse, i'm just never over there anymore, Arlington I mean... I wouldn't would to be sitting there snarfing down one of those burger's if a diesel rig's brakes failed with a ninety-thousand pound load on it rambling down that ridiculous hill...
