How to Grill the Perfect 4th of July Burger

State & Allen

The 4th of July and Summer cookouts are right around the corner. If you’re planning a backyard bash, then State & Allen – purveyors of some of the best burgers in Dallas – has a few tips on how to grill the perfect 4th of July burger:


Start with the Right Meat

You want that meat juicy, right? Then don’t go to lean! We realize many enjoy using leaner varieties of ground beef in recipes, but when it comes to burgers, opt for an 80/20. Ground chuck with a little ground sirloin would be an excellent combination!


Another tip on the meat: make sure it’s freshly ground. The meat that’s been previously frozen has been packed down, lending itself to a more tough burger. You’ll get maximum juiciness out of freshly ground meat. 


Dimple the Patty

Here’s a trick to keep perfectly flat patties every time: as you’re shaping the meat, make the patty about 1 inch thick, then dimple the middle of the patty. As the meat cooks, it will expand and you’ll get a perfect patty.

best burgers in dallas state and allen kitchen + bar


If it Sticks, Don’t Flip

Clean and spray the grate before beginning your grilling, but once the meat is on, let it rest. Test the corner of the meat and if it pulls way easily, then you’re ready to flip!


Only Flip Once

Once you’ve flipped the meat, let it sit! It is tempting to want to continue prodding at the meat, but the more you flip, the more tough the meat will be because the juices leak out every time. 


Enjoy your 4thof July plans, and if you’re looking for the best burger in Uptown Dallas and aren’t in the mood to grill, come see us at State & Allen Kitchen + Bar! Your tastebuds will thank you! Serving lunch and dinner daily.

Foodie Friday: What is Wagyu Beef?

State & Allen

There are many different types of beef out there, and you may have seen menus around town advertising “wagyu beef.” What is it? What makes it different than traditional beef? State & Allen – the best scratch kitchen restaurant in Dallas, Texas - explains:


What is Wagyu Beef?


Wagyu beef is essentially Japanese cattle. The name itself even means “wa” – Japanese and “gyu” – cattle. Wagyu cattle were originally raised for agriculture purposes where the ability to work long hours was key. This aided in the development of the muscle and created unique fat marbling throughout the meat, which Japanese Wagyu is known for. 


What makes Wagyu different than Traditional American Beef?


As we said earlier, it’s all about the breed. If a particular cut of meat is considered “Wagyu,” it must come from the lineage of Japanese Wagyu cattle, either straight from Japan or raised in the United States. 90% of Wagyu beef is considered prime meat, while only 5% of traditional angus beef is considered prime. It’s premium for a reason. 


What Makes Wagyu Special?


Research has shown that the marbling in Wagyu beef is indeed special. In fact, studies have shown Wagyu beef has 300% more monosaturated fats (the good fats seen in salmon and olive oil) than traditional beef! Also, it is high in Omega 3, Omega 6, oleic acid, has low cholesterol levels, and may have cancer fighting properties. How’s that for special?! It may just change the way you see the health benefits of beef. Some studies also note that the diet of Japanese cattle is different that American cattle and that cattle grown there can have added health benefits from its environment.


Our chefs at State & Allen Kitchen + Bar enjoy creating daily chef specials to keep the menu interesting, and sometimes you’ll find Wagyu dishes available! Come see us this week to see what our chef’s are cooking up in their scratch kitchen! We’d love to see you for lunch, dinner, Dallas happy hour, or weekend brunch at State & Allen.

What Makes Napa Valley Wine So Good?

State & Allen

Have you ever wondered why some regions of the world make fabulous wine – and then others either can’t grow grapes or the wine is just “meh?”


The Napa Valley in Northern California is a region known for its plentiful grapes, gorgeous vineyards, and top notch wine. But what makes the Napa Valley so special and why is that wine so dang good? 


The Fault Lines Make for Amazing Soil

The same fault lines that cause catastrophic damage across California from time-to-time are the same fault lines that build the soil in unique ways only an earthquake can. The Napa Valley sits on what is known as a “step-over.” It’s a strange gap of land that isn’t cut by the San Andreas fault, but is directly in its path. The result is major tension on the soil, multiple plates merging together, etc. – and all of that leads to amazing, mineral rich soil that you can’t find just anywhere in the world. 

Napa Valley Wine State & Allen Kitchen Bar Dallas Texas.jpg


Mediterranean Climate

The Napa Valley is within just 2% of the world that is categorized as a Mediterranean climate, and this climate is a jackpot when it comes to growing the best grapes. Think warm, dry days, merged with cooler evenings, that create the perfect setting for grapes to grow plentifully. This climate is set into motion by the presence of mountains and ocean both within close proximity. 


Unique Geographical Elements

Mountains, ocean, and even a river all make the Napa Valley unique and perfect for growing grapes. The Vaca Range and the Mayacamas Mountains provide a shield from winds and cooler temperatures. The Napa River flows abundantly through the region. And just over those mountain ranges, you’ll find the salty sea breezes of the ocean. 


Ready to try some Napa Valley wine? State & Allen Kitchen + Bar - the best restaurant and bar in Uptown Dallas, Texas has a variety of red, white, and sparkling wines available, each perfectly curated to impress your tastebuds.

The Perfect Dallas Burger is Yours at State & Allen

State & Allen

Burgers are about as American as it gets.

They seem so basic – a little meat, veggies, and maybe cheese stacked between two buns – and yet there are always new twists on the standard. 


If you’re looking for fresh twists on the original burger, then you’ve come to the right place! State & Allen has reinvented the traditional hamburger several ways, and all you need to do is bring you appetite!


Step 1: Choose Your Protein

Who said a burger has to include beef?! Sure, our signature beef patty is a customer favorite, but we have a few other offerings as well. Choose between the signature beef patty (which is a combination of ground brisket, chuck, and veal actually), turkey, or lamb. Each is delicious, prepared from the freshest, 100% natural meat. 

state and allen best burger perfect burger in Dallas Texas.jpg


Step 2: Choose Your Toppings

Depending on your protein choice for the best burger in Dallas, we offer a variety of complimentary toppings to bring out the best in every bite. If you’re going with a signature beef patty, our Bacon Avocado Burger is one of our most popular burgers, topped with bacon, avocado, and cheddar cheese on a challah bun. Want to be more adventurous? Then maybe the kimchi burger is for you, complete with Korean-style kimchi, bacon, and gochujang mayo. Peruse the menu and make your burger just the way you like it! 


Step 3: Choose a Side

 Of course we offer traditional hand cut French fries, but feel free to choose one of our other sides instead! We offer potato salad, a side salad, sweet potato fries, elote, Caesar salad, or a cup of soup as options as well. 


Ready to sink your teeth into the perfect Dallas burger? Then visit us at State & Allen this week for lunch, dinner, or happy hour! Just don’t forget to order a craft beer or cocktail to go with it! (And with drink specials as good as ours, it’s a no brainer.)

How Long Can I Park in the Garage?

Great question. We anticipate our guests normally stay at State & Allen 2-3 hours at a time, so our parking spots are allotted for 3 hour increments. However, should you want to continue the party and stay longer, it’s no problem at all. Simply tell your server and he or she will make arrangements with the right people. You won’t get towed. The party can continue as long as you want. It’s a win/win. 


What Days Can I Park in the Garage?


If State & Allen is open, then you can use the garage! So that’s 7 days a week, we’re open and parking is available to you absolutely free of charge.


Many people don’t know about the amazing party setup we have at State & Allen, so it’s always good to have a little refresher. Join us this week for lunch, dinner, brunch, drinks during happy hour, or a late night pizza. We can’t wait to see you at the best restaurant in Uptown Dallas
