If a burger is a blank canvas, the guys at Mixed Up Burgers sure do paint a pretty picture.
Located in an unassuming strip mall behind a Circle K is far west Grand Prairie is a gem of a burger establishment. Mixed Up Burgers twist on the classic is they mix in the topping into the patty. They have all manner of mix-ins and topping to choose from so let your heart be your guide and build the burger of your dreams.
Including a vast selection of pre designed burgers, they feature a Burger Of The Month. This months BOM is the Chorizo Burger. It’s 10 oz of Chorizo & Fresh Ground Beef with pepper jack cheese mixed in cooked to perfection on a flat-top grill. It is served on a well toasted telera bun with avocado mash, pico, lettuce and cotilla cheese.
Once I saw that on the menu, I knew I had to have it. I paired it with a side of well-done, natural cut fries.
I have had Chorizo burgers in the past, and while good, they are often a greasy mess. I don’t know what the ratio of chorizo to beef they used, but it was perfect. All the chorizo flavor stayed in the burger and not running down your arm. Truth be told, I’m not much of an avocado/guac person, but it was a welcome addition to this beauty. It added just the right amount of creaminess without muting everything out. The veggies and the pico were fresh and had a nice crunch. All in all, a very well put together burger.
The fries were also a welcome treat. I always order freshly cut fries well done since it’s hard to get them nice and crispy. Im talking to you In-N-Out Burger. They did these fries right! Perfectly crispy and well seasoned, just as a fry should be.
If you are looking for a good burger and a local business to support, give Mixed Up Burgers a visit. You won’t be disappointed.
