Read What Our Guests Are Saying About Burguesa Burger

June 28, 2010


Burguesa Burger in Oak Cliff, Texas

The Oak Cliff Burguesa Burger team.


We here at Burguesa Burger headquarters love compliments, and they’ve been streaming in from folks who are frequenting our newest locations in Oak Cliff and McAllen. Below, a few highlights:

“My lovely wife, Eva, and I just experienced a dinning event like no other at the new Burguesa Burger in McAllen. We were pleasantly surprised at the traditional burger partnered with our well-loved Mexican ingredients. Our Monumental combo was of superb taste and quality, the service was prompt and friendly, and the place was noticeably clean and rustic. We also enjoyed meeting Manny, and it’s quite obvious that he is a great asset to your company. Accept our wishes for continual success.”
 —Ricardo Carranza

“La Monumental is an excellent burger! I also wanted to mention that the service was fast and friendly. This was our first time to eat at Burguesa [on Fort Worth Avenue], and it won’t be the last.” —Barry Boatman

“If you aren’t familiar with Burguesa, it’s now in the ’hood, and you will freakin’ love it. How great is it to live in Texas where you can not only get the best margaritas in the country but you can also get a Mexican hamburger that’s unlike anything you’ve had before. Seriously, my husband and I had been raving about the Burguesa by UT Southwestern on Inwood Road, but now there’s one on Fort Worth Avenue, too! Go try the Monumental Jr. and get the spicy fries with special sauce for dipping. They even have veggie burgers as an option in the $2.50 kids meal! There are cute wooden booths and a cheery orange interior for the fam. I’m stoked.” —Ashley Bull

“I live a few blocks from your new McAllen location, and I have had your breakfast tacos every morning since you opened. They are fantastic, and your burgers are to-die-for! I’ve recommended you to all of my clients, friends, and family. Keep up the good work! Your head cashier is simply amazing—very friendly and super quick.” —Chris Dominguez

We’re hoping you’ve already visited the Oak Cliff location of Burguesa Burger, affectionately known around Burguesa headquarters as numero cuatro. But we still wanted to give a shout out to franchisee Dale Kimball and his general manager, Rodrigo Santiago-Tejeida, who graduated from Academia de Burguesa in early May.

Burguesa Burger chief progress officer Charles Ballard and his wife, Amelita, were in Chicago recently at the 91st annual National Restaurant Association Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show. Nation’s Restaurant News published a recap of the NRA show in its June 14, 2010 edition, and the Ballards made it into the magazine’s party pics. They attended the celebration honoring this year’s MenuMasters award winners. Also at the shindig—though his photo only made the online edition!—was Burguesa Burger founder Jeff Sinelli.

Burguesa Burger Makes the List of 10 Lunches for Less Than $5 in the Advocate

June 21, 2010

Preston Hollow Advocate Loose Change LunchesLooks like our friends at the Preston Hollow edition of the Advocate recognize a good thing when they see one. Burguesa Burger—the original on Inwood Road—made the cut in the June 2010 cover story, “Loose Change Lunches” (aka “10 Lunches for Less Than $5,” which is how it reads online). The editors love our “funky, orange little shack” for its $3 hamburger, $4 double patty hamburger, and $1 breakfast tacos. Although it’s not mentioned in the article, we have to brag a little: La Monumental Jr. also slides in under the $5 mark, at $4.50.

Our milkshake, which is served with a donut skewered through the straw, is called a “transformer” by The Food Channel–an example of combining everyday foods in a new way to create a “reassembled,” more exotic dessert.
