SMU

OUR TWISTED DEETS

Located on the fringe of the Southern Methodist University campus, Twisted Root SMU is one of our more lively and energetic stores. The recently renovated Shelby Building (as in Shelby Mustang) seemed a perfect fit for a garage-themed Twisted Root.

Besides the huge full bar centered in the dining area, embedded with random, vintage auto artifacts, we have a huge patio open to the dining area by our signature glass garage doors. This is definitely the place to be for the college crowd (or those that don’t wanna grow up.)

A FEW WORDS FROM OUR FANS

  • Hands down, one of the best burgers I've ever had, and I've been to nearly every burger joint in the country (with more than 3 locations). Five Guys, In N Out, Smashburger, etc, don't come close to the burgers here. The Counter comes close, but Twisted Root is amazing! Regardless of which burger you order they are tender, cooked absolutely perfect and come topped with fresh, tasty ingredients. Every burger that comes out is how every one should be cooked, everywhere. Kudos to this place!

  • This is the best burger I've ever had!  (Sorry Lindy's in Tucson, AZ). This place is a burger lovers dream - choose the meat, choose the bun, and choose the toppings that you love. The burgers are always cooked to perfection using high quality beef ... This attention to detail is what creates the ultimate burger. The atmosphere here is wonderful, the staff is so friendly and upbeat, in fact when you order you are usually given some silly name for your order (I've had Yoda, Ron Jeremy, and Miley Cyrus among others.) This place is definitely worth a trip if you haven't been here before just to see what all the fuss is about.  The only downside here is that there isn't much parking in the area, but  the food more than makes up for the hassle associated with parking. This is the home of the hamburger, I have not yet crossed paths with a better burger joint.

  • LOVE it! Arrived on a Wednesday evening and waited about a minute before placing orders for myself and two hungry teens... I had a bison burger (medium) with guac and jalapeños, while my son and daughter each had beef burgers (medium well) with cheddar and bacon. We shared The Fried Ride, which includes way too much deep fried goodness: french fries, sweet potato chips, green beans, pickles and onions... The atmosphere was fun and laid back. Outside, a gaggle of high schoolers from Highland Park filled the picnic tables. Inside, there was a couple of 30 somethings sharing a flirty date (and "adult" milkshake) in a book, some college guys at 3 tables pushed together, a loner at the bar, etc. All makes and models, all enjoying very good food in a very good atmosphere.
