The State Fair of Texas season is upon us, but you don’t have to venture far from our neighborhood for genuine fair food. Case in point: Burguesa Burger. It’s not your average burger joint, and it’s not a Mexican food restaurant, either. “It’s a marriage between the culture of the U.S. and Latin America,” co-owner Dale Kimball says. The Latin-influence burger concept has been a hit with a range of demographics in Oak Cliff. Burguesa is known for its La Monumental, a hefty burger with two beef patties, two slices of cheese, ham, a crunchy tostada, refried beans, lettuce, tomato, onion, avocado and the signature “special creamy sauce.” The menu also includes the Mexican hot dog wrapped in bacon and topped with a pico de gallo relish and the special creamy sauce. Order a milkshake, and it comes with a small doughnut hanging around the straw. Kimball opened Burguesa in June 2010 in a 60-year-old building on Fort Worth Avenue. He hopes to reap the benefits of the neighborhood-friendly retail expansion in the works nearby — the Sylvan Thirty development. “We like what’s going on in Oak Cliff,” he says.
