Description

Forty years ago a small burger joint opened on the square in downtown Denton America. The little place probably couldn't seat more than 30 people, so within the year we had moved to a bigger building on the square where we could seat 100 people. The legend had started.

Everyday the line would stretch out the door. We would literally serve hundreds of people a day and would close at 3:00 plumb tuckered out. It was not unusual for us to sell out of hamburger meat. Our menu was as simple then is it is now...100% fresh ground beef, hand cut skin on French fried potatoes and our famous pinto beans put on to boil at daybreak everyday. We have been loyal to that handmade homemade menu for 40 years.

We have won our share of awards and trophies, including a record setting 18 years in a row of "Best Hamburger and Fries in Denton " as voted by Denton residents in the "Best Of" contest conducted annually by the Denton Record-Chronicle.

Over the years, we have raised many a family of  burger eaters. Some, who started when they were young, now bring their children and even grand children in to taste our legendary burgers.  Over the course of time, we have added a few items to our menu, such as scrumptious chicken fried steak, delicious charbroiled chicken sandwiches, hot dogs, and of course, our garden fresh salads and homemade dressings.

    Growing Greens In Denton Tx

    How to grow lettuce, arugula, Swiss chard, spinach, kale, collards, and mustard greens in Texas. Greens are really easy to grow and in Texas we have two growing seasons for greens. In the video I forgot to say that kale, collard greens and mustard greens are more cold hardy than lettuce, Swiss chard and spinach and so they don't need to be covered or protected when the temperature reaches 22 degrees or below or a light snow is expected. If heavy ice is expected then you might just cover them to keep the leaves from potentially being discolored by the ice. In the video you will notice that I planted the very cold-hardy plants outside of the cold frame.
