At its hip Lovers Lane venue, Neighborhood Services presents classic American comfort foods, elevated. Those in search of a great burger will look past the raw bar and nightly plates of traditional fare like meatloaf and fried chicken, and opt for the signature prime cheddar burger. Critics have called it one of the best burgers in Dallas. It's a patty of prime Angus chuck, ground daily in house and grilled over mesquite and white oak. On top is aged cheddar, a pile of caramelized onions and applewood bacon, and on the side a serving of twice-fried, house-cut, sea-salted russet frites.

Bistro 31, housed in a historic venue built in 1931 (hence its name), takes inspiration from the French Riviera for its fine cuisine, but its bistro burger leans toward a classic American style. It comes topped with Tillamook cheddar, with fries on the side and the option to add a farm-fresh egg. The burger features on the lunch, dinner and brunch menus, which it shares with such classics as escargots, oysters Rockefeller and Dover sole meuniere. Bistro 31 customers can choose an outdoor seat on the central courtyard, or dine indoors while admiring contemporary local art and custom Murano chandeliers.

Origin Kitchen and Bar first made its name in the Dallas dining scene with health-focused food, but more recently departed from that concept in adding more decadent dishes to its menus. Among them is a large, juicy grass-fed beef burger, loaded with egg, bacon, cheddar, caramelized onion, greens, tomato and aioli on brioche. Adding avocado, pickles or pickled jalapeno is an option, as is switching to a gluten-free bun. Side options range from light to indulgent, including fries, goat cheese grits, asparagus, spinach and more. The lunch and dinner menus feature a bison burger with similar toppings, and the brunch menu features a burger salad, the same patty and toppings over spring greens with croutons.

Inside its historic venue, formerly a blacksmith's shop, Smithy presents new American cuisine created around locally sourced, sustainable ingredients. Its signature at lunch is the "make your own bowl" option with an array of healthy vegetables, proteins and bold sauces; shared plates are the signature at dinner time. The butcher's burger features on the lunch, brunch and dinner menus alike. It's a patty of dry-aged beef topped with two cheeses (gruyere and Roth Moody blue), bacon-onion marmalade and aioli, on a southern bun (or substitute bibb lettuce). Side options are shoestring fries, house-made chips or quinoa. The dinner menu also offers sliders on challah rolls with American cheese, fry sauce and house-made pickles.

"Delicious dining and conscious nutrition" is the motto of True Food Kitchen, a national restaurant chain founded by notable physician Dr. Andrew Weil. The restaurant's menus rotate seasonally and always feature fresh ingredients. Proving that the best burgers in Dallas aren't necessarily unhealthy, the menus of the Dallas restaurant at The Plaza at Preston Center present several burgers. All come with a side of sweet potato hash, kale salad or cucumber salad. There's the inside out quinoa burger, a grass-fed beef burger with mushrooms, caramelized onions, arugula and parmesan on a flaxseed bun, and a turkey burger with smoked gouda, smashed avocado and jalapeno remoulade.

It's one of an array of beef preparations that also includes a syrah short rib, grilled tenderloin filet and nightly steak special.
