Texas is a state that’s known for beef production, and the hamburger joints in Plano, Texas, have taken advantage of the ease with which they can get the best beef for their hamburgers. You’re sure to find a hamburger that satisfies your craving for the combination of bread, dairy, vegetables, and a tasty beef (or other protein) patty that’s the centerpiece of the dish. Below is a look at five of the top hamburger joints in Plano, and when you’ve had a good meal, come see us at Huffines Chevrolet Plano to check out our inventory of new and used cars.
Olive Burger, owned by the Miraki family, is their passion project that grew beyond their wildest dreams. The family started their first hamburger joint with the concept of using a unique recipe for their hamburger patty. From there, they created hamburger and ingredient combinations that, while unusual, weren’t pretentious in terms of price and serving. This caught the attention of locals who wanted to try something different but didn’t want to dress up just to eat a hamburger. The end result is a menu that comes with everything from the classic hamburger to the olive cheeseburger.
The original burger consists of a 1/3-pound beef patty, lettuce, tomato, onions, and pickles made with fresh ingredients and the Olive Burger signature beef patty. Upgrade to a cheeseburger by picking one of the cheese options. If you’re in the mood for some fire, the Jalapenos Cheeseburger is topped with cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickles, sauteed jalapenos, and onions. Last, but not least, the Mushroom Cheeseburger delivers savory flavor with toppings that include lettuce, tomato, sauteed onions, mushrooms, pickles, and it’s topped off with Swiss cheese.
Snuffer’s Restaurant and Bar
Snuffer’s has been a local fixture on the Plano scene since 1978 and is well-known for its burgers and cheddar fries. Everything on the menu is made from scratch, and the burgers are made from fresh beef that’s never been frozen. The restaurant bills its hamburger offerings as “The Original Better Burger,” a nod to the fact the restaurant has always used the freshest ingredients possible and began doing so in an era where convenience in the form of frozen ingredients had taken hold. The specialty burger portion of the menu has a hamburger for everyone, and that includes vegetarians.
Snuffer’s Classic hamburger features a fresh ground chuck hamburger patty with mustard, pickles, red onions, lettuce, and tomatoes. You can add cheddar, American, Swiss, or pepper jack cheese with a small extra charge, or add applewood smoked bacon for a bit more money. If you’re feeling like kicking it up a notch, order the Dr. Pepper BBQ Bacon Burger. You get a fresh ground chuck hamburger patty topped with American cheese, diced red onions, mayo, applewood smoked bacon strips, and crispy bacon crumbles topped off by a Dr. Pepper-infused barbecue sauce.
Village Burger Bar
The Village Burger Bar offers gourmet hamburgers made with high-quality beef and unique ingredient and flavor combinations that elevate the simple meal of beef on a bun into a culinary experience. All hamburgers are served on a brioche bun made from local bakeries, or you can order without the bun if you’re going carb-free. Some of the hamburgers on offer include the Cheddar Burger with cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, dill pickles, and champagne mustard.
Village Burger Bar also gives you the option to make your own hamburger using ingredients from the menu. Pick a protein from a selection that includes chicken, beef, turkey, veggie patty, or Impossible Burger, then add from the cheeses ranging from American and cheddar to feta and goat, then pick from one of the many sauces on offer. The selection of sauces rivals that of the toppings, so expect to have a hard, albeit fun, time picking out the ingredients that appeal to you for your hamburger.
Ye Ole Butcher Shop
When you step foot into Ye Ole Butcher Shop, you’re not sure if you walked into a butcher shop, a diner, or both. Ye Ole Butcher Shop is both a butcher shop with a small selection of fresh meats in a refrigerated case at the front and a traditional diner to the side. You can come in for one of the restaurant’s famous Buffalo burgers, then pick up hand-trimmed steaks to cook at home. In the event you’re looking for a hamburger, you’re in the right place. All hamburger patties are made from ground beef prepared in the butcher shop, but it’s the exotic proteins that make Ye Ole Butcher Shop stand out from most hamburger joints.
The Butcher Burger, Buffalo Burger, and Turkey Burger are available daily, and elk is offered when it’s in season. The Butcher Burger consists of a fresh hamburger patty topped with lettuce, tomatoes, onion, and pickle, with the option to add cheese. The same toppings are available on the Buffalo and turkey burgers. Veggie burgers are sometimes available, but check first before heading to the store.
Kenny’s Burger Joint
Looking to get your burger on? Then Kenny’s Burger Joint is the place for you with its 1/2-pound wood-grilled burgers that are almost too big to eat even with both hands. Its standard hamburger known as Zed’s Straight Up comes with lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle, and mayo as a base for many of the offerings on the menu, unless otherwise noted. There’s a Royale With Cheese that’s the Zed’s Straight Up with your choice of cheddar, American, Swiss, or pepper jack cheese. Don’t want the house hamburger toppings? Get the Patty Melt with a sourdough bun, sauteed onions, Swiss cheese, and secret sauce for something different.
