So, it’s not much closer to our offices than the Fort Worth locations are, but those lucky dogs in Denton sure have something to cheer about. The burgers-and-live-music formula that made Chef Tim Love’s Fort Worth Love Shacks a success is bound to show well in this newest location.
“I’m beyond thrilled to be opening in Denton,” says Love. “I’m just a few miles from the house I grew up in, and I have a ton of family and friends in the area, so to be able to bring a Love Shack here is a dream come true.”
The joint will fit 120 people indoors and outdoors and has a stage for live music, natch. Love will serve classics like the Love Burger and the famous Dirty Love Burger, as well as hot dogs, house-made sausages, hand-cut fries, and onion rings. Non-beef burger offerings include the Classic Yard Bird (Love’s take on a classic grilled chicken sandwich), the Gobbler (a turkey-cheddar burger), the Boom Boom (a lightly battered and fried Portobello sandwich), and a classic Grilled Cheese.
Don’t miss out on Love’s celebrated Lonesome Dove Pork green chili, grilled pickles (which this reporter got to sample at the Barbados Food & Wine and Rum Festival), house rootbeer, jalapeno cucumber margarita, and daily milkshake special, with flavors such as Chocolate Mint, Heath Bar Crunch, Strawberry, and Mocha.
