Del Frisco's Grille Uptown Burger Recipe

In honor of National Burger Month, Del Frisco's Grille locations in Dallas, Southlake and Fort Worth had their chefs create specially curated burgers in order to celebrate the special occasion.  I'm definitely a burger kind of gal, so I ventured out to the Uptown location of Del Frisco's Grille to see what all the fuss was about.

Executive Chef Antonio Zamora created the "Uptowner" burger in honor of National Burger Month. Zamora touts, "We take two prime beef patties, herb roasted wild shiitake, portabella, oyster and crimini mushrooms, and top it with local creamy brazos Brie cheese, crunchy pepper arugula tossed in truffle vinaigrette and finish it with a sweet basil aioli on an Empire bakery brioche bun."

This burger was so mouthwatering and tasty--the brie cheese is what truly makes this burger. I paired this burger with both the seasoned Frites and adult milkshake for a total burger tasting experience.
