I met my buddy and old classmate, Chance, at Molankis Burger around the Christmas holiday. The place is in a little strip center in far north Dallas. It’s your basic build-out, without much decor to speak of on the walls. That’s okay; we’re here for the food. They have a wide variety of burgers available, but I wanted to try the basics. I went with a bacon cheeseburger and sweet potato fries. Chance got the regular fries, so I got to experience those. The place is apparently under new ownership, but the menu looks to be unchanged. They did not have their replacement fountain machine after the ownership change, but each drink order got us 2 sodas instead of just one.
The burger was cooked to order and was of the 1/2-lb. variety. The bacon was nice and thick, as was the patty. It was more along the medium well line, with just a touch of pink. It was very juicy and a pretty solid burger over all. The sweet potato fries were of the probably frozen, crinkled variety. I definitely enjoyed the regular fries more and that is what I would recommend you do too. I give it 3 out of 5 stars. I don’t know if I would go across town for this burger, but it’s definitely a place to try if you’re in far northwest Dallas.
