2. Bacon Cheeseburger: Dairy-ette
Fancy ingredients and showy presentation have their place, but few things compare to a good, old-fashioned burger from a drive-in that's been employing carhops and fry cooks since the '50s. Order a cheeseburger all the way, plus crispy bacon if you want, but this classic doesn't even need it. Make sure to add a homemade root beer in a frosted mug and hand-cut fries.
$4.20 with bacon; $3.75 without. 9785 Ferguson Rd., East Dallas (214-327-9983)
