Hey! That Guy’s Dressed Like a Giant Mexican Hot Dog!

Burguesa Burger's Charles Ballard dressed like a Mexican hot dog

Do not be alarmed when you see this man. Instead, ask him how to get a $5 Mexican hot dog combo!


If you happen to be driving past Fort Worth and Sylvan avenues Friday morning, you might see this guy standing on the corner, passing out flyers for $5 Mexican hot dog combos at Burguesa Burger. The man behind the mask is chief progress officer Charles Ballard, and he’s hitting the streets dressed like a hot dog to get people pumped about Burguesa’s Hallo-wiener promotion. For two days only (October 29-30), we’re offering two Mexican hot dogs, fries, and a medium drink for just $5—a savings of $3.25! He’ll be in Oak Cliff bright and early, then he’ll head over to Renaissance Tower to catch the breakfast crowd there. If you miss him in the morning, he’ll return to Oak Cliff in the afternoon. Happy Hallo-wiener!

The original Burguesa Burger on Inwood Road in Dallas

Inwood Road, we will miss you.

We are sad to report the passing of the original Burguesa Burger on Inwood Road. The little orange shack will forever live in our hearts as the birthplace of the Original Mexican Burger. As our concept evolves, we remain true to founder Jeff Sinelli’s philosophy of one corporate store, at Renaissance Tower, aka Academia de Burguesa. There we will continue to train ambassadors of this great brand and serve our ever-expanding Burguesa fan base. Don’t live near downtown Dallas? Come visit us in Oak Cliff or McAllen, Texas, where there’s always a La Monumental with your name on it.
