Hamburger review: Keller's in Dallas

LDALLAS - Judging strictly by its appearance, Keller's Hamburgers Drive-In in Dallas on Harry Hines Blvd. has everything you could want in a burger place.

It is flanked by thrift stores, tire shops that are surrounded by razor wire, gentleman's clubs and pawn shops. Another sign of quality: It's the type of restaurant where you should lock your valuables in your trunk.

My favorite part about Keller's - it's a drive-in style restaurant that offers no indoor seating, and sells alcohol.

It looks like a classic 50s style burger joint. The only thing missing from this place is Arthur Fonzarelli walking out, getting on his motorcycle and jumping the shark.

Thanks to Big Mac Blog reader Steven Bryan's suggestion, I made the trek here for the cheeseburger and fries.

The burger is good, but the actual patty itself isn't quite big enough to offset the onions, tomato and pickles. The sesame seed bun is outstanding. The fries actually taste like they were real potatoes at one time.

All told for both items - $4. That's less than a Starbucks drink.

There are better burgers, but few better bargains.
