All the Details

In 2010, the unusual burger at Yaser Khalaf’s Farnatchi Gourmet Oven made my Best in DFW burger list. Since then, Khalaf opened a dedicated burger place in Uptown, Ketchup Burger Bar, and I fell in love with the Ketchup Burger ($9). Much more traditional than the oniony burger at Farnatchi, it’s a straight-ahead, generous Black Angus patty — cooked juicily medium-rare, if you like — cloaked in a thin veil of melted cheddar. It’s perfectly proportioned on its brioche bun, and well-dressed, too, with slices of nicely caramelized red onion, ripe tomato and lettuce leaves; a dollop of house-made ketchup gives it pizazz. There are also burgers fashioned from turkey, veggies, tuna or lamb, and beef burgers with tasty treatments, such as gorgonzola, arugula and fig spread. Plus a panoply of house-made ketchups that merit exploration — abetted by an order of hot, crisp chive-garlic fries. The place, which doubles as a very pleasant bar, offers half a dozen beers on tap.Leslie Brenner/Guide
