Local DFW Contest: Big Star Burgers

I do believe my family has found the best hamburger joint in town. Okay, so it’s not exactly “in town,” but it is just a short jaunt across the lake into historic downtown Rowlett. I am speaking about Big Star Burgers – a family owned business with fresh food, and an eclectic old-time Hollywood jive.

We’ve visited Big Star Burgers many times since their opening in the spring of 2006. The service and food has never let us down. Everyone in my family has their favorite menu items. I am addicted to the Bleu Cheeseburger that I cut up in fourths to eat because of the generous amount of blue cheese and other toppings. Mr. Computer Geek Genius covets the hand-cut Shoe-String Onion Rings that are the best I have ever tasted. The Fresh–Cut French Fries aren’t bad either, and we always order a Co-Star Basket so we can have both. The children love the shakes made with Blue Bell Ice Cream, and I am not below stealing sips of these creamy concoctions when they are not looking.

Big Star Burgers also offers delicious, gigantic, fresh salads for those who watching what they eat. I recommend the House Salad because I love hearts of palm. Even vegetarians can enjoy The Natural which consists of grilled portabella mushroom topped with melted Monterrey Jack, crisp romaine and tomato on a wheat bun.

If you’d like to read more about Big Star Burgers, I’ve added a link to their raving review in the Dallas Observer.

Great review! I have eaten at Big Star a few times and you are right on. Their food is great and the people are super. I wish it was closer to my house or that I had a reason to be in Rowlette more.

I am biased....Sharon is my cousin but I do think they have fantastic burgers and shakes!

Visit my blog and read an entry about Sharon when she was a little kid.

I am not sure that I qualify for the contest but if so, count me in for the drawing!

Well for some reason I couldn't get to the menu but the burgers looked delicious in the pics. I live in the Austin area, but have friends and family in the DFW area. I dunno if that counts, but if so count me in. It would give me a reason to take a car trip up to d town. Great giveaway, thanks!

Hey girl,

I tried to put you on my "blogs of note" but the url took me to some other site when I posted the link. What gives?
