Burgers, Baseball and Giving Back

Del Frisco’s Grille (DFG) knows how to do burgers. It also knows how to turn those burgers into a way to give back to the community. In May, North Texas locations of DFG celebrated National Burger Month with something called the Craft Burger Wars. It’s just as fun as it sounds.

Throughout the month of May, DFG locations in Southlake, Dallas and Ft. Worth competed against each other to sell the most unique, location-specific burgers, with $1 of each burger sale going to a local charity chosen by the restaurant.

For the Craft Burger Wars, Southlake’s Chef Henschen created the “Lone Star Prime Beef Burger,” a tangy BBQ beef brisket added to a traditional four-ounce beef patty and topped with pepper jack cheese and sweet pickled jalapenos on a brioche bun. This creative, true-to-Texas burger helped Del Frisco’s Grille Southlake outsell the Dallas and Ft. Worth restaurants by nearly 200 burgers, raising $700 for the Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation.

In August, Del Frisco’s Grille Southlake’s General Manager Gemma Brady and Executive Chef Aaron Henschen presented Executive Director Karin Morris with a check for $700 for the Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation. The winnings will be used by the foundation to improve the lives of children within the DFW community and provide funding for youth baseball and education programs.
