Cheeseburger at Keller's Drive-In, Dallas TX

I finally had a change to visit Keller's Drive-In in Dallas. Keller's has couple of spots in Dallas and the one I visited is located on Harry Hines Blvd in West Dallas, close to border of Irving. The area is a bit dodgy with all the strip joints, bars and condoms-to-go-spots. Keller's itself also looks a bit seedy but don't judge the place by its cover. It's often is full of pick ups with some semi-seedy chracters but the service is good and the burgers are so tasty that they must fall from heaven. The car hops are friendly and they might not hit the model look or measurements but they are fast and efficient. Oh, and if you don't fancy a soda or milk shake you can order beer with your burger before hitting road again. Yes, you read right, you can drink beer with your burger and drive off. And if you are really thirsty you can buy beer by cases if you like.

At Keller's you don't have too many choices which is good. Regular burger costs $2.00, Cheeseburger $2.15 and Special No. 5 only $2.48. Fries and Tater Tots adds $1.25 to your total. I didn't order the much recommended No. 5 but went with my regular cheeseburger and left the No. 5 for later experience. All burgers come with poppy seeded buns which might not be the best choice for in-car eating but taste really good. Cheeseburger has a grilled tomato slice, onion, little lettuce and a pinch of black pepper. You can have it with mustard and/or mayo. Their burgers are some serious stuff. Not bodacious, but tasty, greasy and cheap. Fries were ok, but pretty average. Next time I'll just have two cheeseburgers with no fries. Sorry, I'll take that back, next time I need to try that No. 5.

They have fantasic prices for good food and this definetly is another great burger place to check out. And remember to bring cash - it's all they take. Recommended!
