Whos Who

Who's Who Burgers
69 Highland Park Village
Dallas, TX 75205
Phone: 214-522-1980

Wow, its been a week since we tried this. I guess I am having a super busy week.


Atmoshpere
Who's Who is in Highland Park. For those not familiar with the Dallas area, Highland Park is one of those affluent city within a city places; its surrounded by Dallas but independent. People affectionately refer to Highland Park as 'The Bubble', due, in part, to the theory that Highland Park residents never get out of Highland Park and have no clue what goes on in the city that surrounds them. Sadly, I have found this to be true.

So, its fun to invade their territory. More fun to watch Prada-clad, ladies who lunch cram down some big greasy burgers and fries. Oooh, very chic of you Tiffany and I think you dribbled some beef fat on your chin implant. :)

Who's Who has a backyard tree-house feel, its built on 3 small levels and has small windows and doors that lead out to patios.

The Plate
Kobe beef burgers, regular beef burgers, turkey cran burgers, chicken burgers, hot dogs and a portabello veggie burger. Those are the options. I tried the Turkey Cran and frankly it tasted just like beef. I liked the tartness of the real cranberry sauce (not the stuff that goes plop in a bowl and looks like a big cylinder of red goop) against the saltiness of the turkey burger. Nice that they used a whole wheat bun for the turkey burger, since those that choose turkey over beef are more likely to want whole wheat.

Fries are dangerously good here; they are of the batter dipped and twice fried spicy version.

Service
Order and pick up at the counter. Our order for 6 was done in 10 minutes even during peek hours.

Price
Under $10, even for the Kobe beef burger (as long as you don't go bananas with toppings).

Location
Highland Park Village. A convenient stop if you are movie-going at the Regent. The only thing I don't like about Who's Who is the hours of operation, they close at 8pm.

The food seems very inexpensive. This Highland Park you speak of sounds like its full of evil harpes feeding on the limbs of helpless people. Just the type of crowd that makes for an entertaining dining experiance. Nothing like plastic people trying to eat with their hands.

Yes Scotty, it is fun to watch them with limited plastic-limb dexerity :)

I noticed that all the HP women looked exactly the same: blonde straight hair, deathly thin, trout pout lips and a pale white blank expression. This confirms my suspicion that there is a factory somewhere cranking out these faux-people.
