Quick, easy, and delicious best describe burritos, burgers, and hot dogs. They may offer distinctly different flavors, but in Dallas, there’s plenty to choose from among these fast food favorites. We compiled a list of the best burritos, burgers, and hot dogs in Dallas just for you. Enjoy!


La Victoria Restaurant

La Victoria Restaurant has been serving up a mean breakfast burrito since 2005, earning it a reputation among Dallasites pretty quickly. Don’s Delight is named after a longtime patron and includes crispy bacon, scrambled eggs, guacamole, and raw onion slices. The Zac Attack is a tortilla filled with potatoes, bacon, eggs, beans, and jalapenos. What makes these breakfast burritos great is that they’re grilled on either side, come with a side of salsa, and are big and filling for a Texas-sized appetite.

Fuel City may be known for its tacos, but this destination’s equally beloved for its burritos, too. Set in a gas station, Fuel City offers burritos made with a 12-inch flour tortilla and filled with your choice of meat—chicken or steak fajita, picadillo, barbacoa, or pastor—beans, cheese, onions, cilantro, lettuce, tomatoes, jalapenos, and sour cream. The burritos are less than $5! Be sure to bring cash, as Fuel City doesn’t accept cards.

Taqueria La Ventana

With five locations, there’s plenty of options for Dallas locals to get a great burrito from Taqueria La Ventana. Sure, they’re a taqueria (taco shop), but the burritos are fantastic, too. Customers choose from nine meat options that include everything from barbacoa to lengua and suadero, or chopped brisket. Rice, beans, lettuce, guacamole, cheese, and more can be added to the burrito to make it as large as you’d like.


Burger House

Old burger joints serve the best hamburgers in Dallas and among them is Burger House. Burger House doesn’t serve the biggest burgers in town, but whether it’s a hamburger or cheeseburger or one or the other with chili, they all come with mustard, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, and onions. No matter the burger, you’ll want to order a side of fries with Burger House’s special seasoning, the likes of which this spot is famous for.


Dairy-Ette doesn’t serve Insta-worthy burgers, but in Dallas, its burgers are beloved for being delicious and cheap. Set in an old-fashioned diner, Dairy-Ette has been serving burgers since 1956. The hamburger patties are 80/20, non-seasoned, and topped with American cheese, lettuce, onions, tomatoes, pickles, and yellow mustard. The bun is lightly steamed and smashed on either side of the meat and toppings. It’s not pretty—it’s just a good burger.


Keller’s Drive-In has been serving hamburgers to the Dallas community since 1950 in an old-fashioned drive-in restaurant. It’s best known for using poppy seed buns for its burgers, a unique twist to an American classic. The No. 5 is the most popular of the burgers and features a double patty with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, and a special dressing. Enjoy the No. 5 or any poppy seed burger from Keller’s in your car with a beer to wash it down (seriously, it’s legal!).

Hot Dogs

Angry Dog

Angry Dog has been serving up butterflied and grilled hot dogs in Deep Ellum for about 28 years. You can order the Dog, an all-beef kosher dog, and pile it high with chili, cheese, jalapenos, or whatever your heart desires. However, the Angry Dog is their specialty and includes chili, grilled onions, cheddar cheese, and pickles on the side. Use a fork and knife to eat this one—trust us.

Wild About Harry’s

Wild About Harry’s has been serving frozen custard and award-winning hot dogs since 1996. Its hot dogs are made with 100 percent Chicago ingredients, like Vienna beef. The Dallas, Texas, Chicago, and New York dogs were the original hot dogs, but today, this hot dog hub offers 10 dogs. The Texas hot dog comes with mustard, chili, onions, and cheese, while others are more creative, like the Junkyard Dog, which features a spicy Polish hot dog with jalapenos.
