Chop House didn't break my top 5, although I would say it's in the top 10. Two things prevented it from entering the top 5 - shredded lettuce and the bun. The bun is a bit of an oxymoron. The menu clearly states that it is served on a butter toasted bun and it most definitely was. And I love a butter toasted bun. However, there were parts of my bun that were super soggy, I guess from the tomatoes. One thing that I totally can't stand is soggy bread. Was almost a deal breaker. The sogginess and the toastiness of the bun was a bit confusing to the palette.
Overall, all five of the Burger Babes were very pleased with their choices.
Chop House is deep in Arlington and probably quite a trek for many of you. If you can combine a visit to Chop House with a Rangers or Cowboy game, that would be ideal. But if you can't, it's still worth the trip to experience that incredible ground beef and brisket combination. And if you go on your birthday, your burger is free!
Things to know before you go:
- You may wait in line to order for a good 20 minutes.
- Older building, crummy AC, especially in August
- Your patty will be cooked well unless specified otherwise. I asked for medium and it bordered on medium rare, which was fine with me.
Next month, the Burger Babe outing will be a touch different as there is a Burger Fest in Deep Ellum on the 21st. Hope to see you there.
