Sandwich of the Week: Love Shack's Dirty Love Burger

Sandwich of the Week: Love Shack's Dirty Love Burger

A few months ago, Texans and California expats prepared for the arrival of a new burger joint in Fort Worth — the first Texas outpost of cult favorite In-N-Out. There were lines, there were tears, and there were converts to the West Coast-based burger chain. But it's not like Fort Worth didn't have its own local burger standouts. Among them, Chef Tim Love's three Love Shack locations, one in the Fort Worth Stockyards, one at Trinity Park, and the last in Denton East of the Square.

For anyone unacquainted with Tim Love, he's the bigger-than-life, straight-shooting, game-cooking, festival-circuit chef whose demos you don't want to miss — the ones where he'll do tequila shots with the crowd when it's barely past lunch. Love has done high-dining, but the Love Shacks are places where he can exhibit playfulness.

Normally, when a chef or a menu notes "love" as an ingredient, the most appropriate response is either an eyeroll, or to walk out. If the person making your food claims there's "love" in your food they're either being phony, or they've done something with the food that they should get sued for. Given the chef's last name, you have to allow Love Shack an exception to this rule. And they take full advantage. The menu is full of jokes and puns: the Dirty Love burger, the "Amore Caliente" (hot love) burger, the section called, "Love on the Side." But there's serious flavor too.

For an overall sense of the burgers you can order sliders. But there's nothing like a full burger. The way to go is the Dirty Love Burger — lettuce, tomato, pickles, "Love Sauce," American cheese, bacon, and fried quail egg. The patty is on a fresh bun with an excellent cheese-to-meat ratio. The perfect burger? No. Needs more sauce, a touch more seasoning, and it could stand to be juicier. But these are the finer points of burger debate. You're still going to want to go back for bite after bite.

As good a sandwich as the Dirty Love Burger is, the truth is that Love Shack's two best items are the green pork chili (left, as topping on the "Heated Dog") and the nachos. They're both addictive. If you're looking to hit as many items as possible, taste the chili on the "Heated" dog: Lonesome Dove pork green chili with shredded Cheddar and onion. On the dog it's featured with a healthy amount of Cheddar. But eating it this way starts to make you feel as though you're not doing it justice. This is spoon-after-spoon chili. Eating it on its own will make you very happy. It's zesty and wet, with a fine grind.

Fresh chips, smoked Cheddar, lettuce, tomatoes, pico de gallo, guacamole, jalapeños, shredded Asiago, and seasoned ground tenderloin.

OK, seriously, if it hasn't been done, someone needs to write a treatise on nachos (please write in with one if you know of it), the ideal ratios of ingredients. In this neck of the woods, the best nachos are those with as much, or more toppings as chips. At Love Shack they've got this figured out. The chips are crisp and fresh, and there's an even, gooey, coating of cheese. It almost seems as though they layer it on the bottom before putting the chip layer. You're not going to get into a situation here where you reach the bottom and there's no cheese. And how often can you say that? There's shredded lettuce, and guac, fresh and spicy jalapeños — these are nachos to contend with.

The Best Secret Menu Items From Restaurant Chains

What’s a secret menu, you ask? Sort of what it sounds like: According to “the ultimate and complete Secret Menu resource” #HackTheMenu, such menus are comprised of unofficial and unadvertised items that fast food restaurants will make for you, if you dare to ask.

These items are sometimes imagined by the restaurants (or employees) themselves, but more often than not it’s customers that invent them and spread the word amongst others until it’s popularized in an unofficial way.

There are literally hundreds of these, many of which can be viewed at hackthemenu.com. For the sake of the convenience, we’re sharing our favorites. The rest is up to you.

Arby’s Meat Mountain

The essence of Jon Stewart’s love/hate for the meat-loving franchise exists within this one, enormous, non-apologetically meaty sandwich. It contains chicken tenders, roast, turkey, ham, swiss cheese — breathe — brisket, corned beef, angus steak, cheddar cheese, and — breathe — bacon.

It may not be quite Game of Thrones Mountain-epic, but I think it could defeat most of us in trial by combat.

Chipotle’s Quesarito

What’s better than a Chipotle burrito? A Chipotle burrito wrapped in a quesadilla. Also called the “holy grail” of Chipotle’s secret menu (and maybe indigestion), think of the Quesarito as a burrito being embraced by a cheesy friend. Unfortunately, it does cost $3.50 extra — and that’s without the cost of guac.

But the burrito-quesadilla hybrid doesn’t end there. You can also get a burritodilla: a quesadilla filled with half the contents of a regular burrito. Yum.

Jamba Juice’s Dirty Orgasm Secret Menu

Asking for this secret menu item seems like it could be a trap, or a tad awkward at the very least. But if thing go right, you’ll get a delicious smoothie made of peach juice, pineapple sherbet, orange sherbet, actual peaches, and strawberries. Not dirty, but potentially orgasmic.

KFC’s Triple Down


Whether you were enraged or tickled by the addition of KFC’s double down, a sandwich with chicken instead of buns, add another slab of chicken to that emotion and you have the triple down: a triple-decker chicken stack with cheese and bacon between each strip.

McDonald’s Land, Air, and Sea

McDonald’s has tons of customer-created off-menu items, and the company actively encourages people to mix and match for new creations. Perhaps the most popular item is the “McGangbang,” created by putting a McChicken smack dab in the middle of a McDouble burger, for just $2.

Even more radical, though, is the “Land, Air and Sea” — the holy (or more likely unholy) combination of a Big Mac, Filet-o-Fish, and McChicken into one ginormous sandwich monster.

Shake Shack’s Peanut Butter and Bacon Burger

Allegedly, comparatively classy burger joint Shake Shack has developed a peanut butter SAUCE that pairs magnificently with a bacon shackburger.

The combo, called a peanut butter shack burger, was featured on the menu for a week before retreating into secrecy it can still be assembled if you ask nicely.

Starbucks’ Butterbeer Latte

Holy Frappuccino, Starbucks has a lot of delicious, sugar-stuffed secret frozen drinks to choose from! Banana cream pie, Fruity Pebbles, and cake batter fraps are all available to those in the know. But for Harry Potter fans, at least, the decadent butterbeer latte is a (metaphorically) clear and physically frothy winner.

Holy Frappuccino, Starbucks has a lot of delicious, sugar-stuffed secret frozen drinks to choose from! Banana cream pie, Fruity Pebbles, and cake batter fraps are all available to those in the know. But for Harry Potter fans, at least, the decadent butterbeer latte is a (metaphorically) clear and physically frothy winner.


The Best Secret Menu Items From Restaurant Chains

What’s a secret menu, you ask? Sort of what it sounds like: According to “the ultimate and complete Secret Menu resource” #HackTheMenu, such menus are comprised of unofficial and unadvertised items that fast food restaurants will make for you, if you dare to ask.

These items are sometimes imagined by the restaurants (or employees) themselves, but more often than not it’s customers that invent them and spread the word amongst others until it’s popularized in an unofficial way.

There are literally hundreds of these, many of which can be viewed at hackthemenu.com. For the sake of the convenience, we’re sharing our favorites. The rest is up to you.

Arby’s Meat Mountain

The essence of Jon Stewart’s love/hate for the meat-loving franchise exists within this one, enormous, non-apologetically meaty sandwich. It contains chicken tenders, roast, turkey, ham, swiss cheese — breathe — brisket, corned beef, angus steak, cheddar cheese, and — breathe — bacon.

It may not be quite Game of Thrones Mountain-epic, but I think it could defeat most of us in trial by combat.

Chipotle’s Quesarito

What’s better than a Chipotle burrito? A Chipotle burrito wrapped in a quesadilla. Also called the “holy grail” of Chipotle’s secret menu (and maybe indigestion), think of the Quesarito as a burrito being embraced by a cheesy friend. Unfortunately, it does cost $3.50 extra — and that’s without the cost of guac.

But the burrito-quesadilla hybrid doesn’t end there. You can also get a burritodilla: a quesadilla filled with half the contents of a regular burrito. Yum.

Jamba Juice’s Dirty Orgasm Secret Menu

Asking for this secret menu item seems like it could be a trap, or a tad awkward at the very least. But if thing go right, you’ll get a delicious smoothie made of peach juice, pineapple sherbet, orange sherbet, actual peaches, and strawberries. Not dirty, but potentially orgasmic.

KFC’s Triple Down


Whether you were enraged or tickled by the addition of KFC’s double down, a sandwich with chicken instead of buns, add another slab of chicken to that emotion and you have the triple down: a triple-decker chicken stack with cheese and bacon between each strip.

McDonald’s Land, Air, and Sea

McDonald’s has tons of customer-created off-menu items, and the company actively encourages people to mix and match for new creations. Perhaps the most popular item is the “McGangbang,” created by putting a McChicken smack dab in the middle of a McDouble burger, for just $2.

Even more radical, though, is the “Land, Air and Sea” — the holy (or more likely unholy) combination of a Big Mac, Filet-o-Fish, and McChicken into one ginormous sandwich monster.

Shake Shack’s Peanut Butter and Bacon Burger

Allegedly, comparatively classy burger joint Shake Shack has developed a peanut butter SAUCE that pairs magnificently with a bacon shackburger.
