Black Buffalo Burger Voted #27 Burger in Texas!

Texas Monthly | August 2009


Texas Monthly Review: #27. If, like us, you have a deep and abiding love of both buffalo wings and hamburgers and have often wondered if together they would not produce something greater than the sum of their parts, this is the burger for you.

Lodge satisfies hamburger hankering

The Daily Texan | June 17th, 2009

“Black Sheep Burger, however, blew away my expectations… It was absolutely delicious. The hand-formed, half-pound patty had a nice, char-grilled crust. Served on a bun that is “delivered daily to the restaurant,” the burger was topped with mixed greens instead of the typical iceberg lettuce.”
