Remembering Dallas Restaurants: Jamie’s Gourmet Burgers

In June, 2010, I wrote a blog post called Remembering Dallas Restaurants: How Far Back Do You Go. There were over 100 comments and reading them is a real trip down memory lane for those of us who have been around here for a long (really long) time. This morning comes an email from a reader. She’s jonsing for Jamie’s. Remember Jamie’s Gourmet Burgers on Lemon Avenue. One reader swears it was on Inwood but I remember it being behind Esquire Theater on Oak Lawn. They served stuffed burgers, curly fries, and baked beans. THE BEST thing about Jamie’s? The centerpiece was a flag and you raised it when you wanted a server. I can’t believe nobody else has ever done that. It’s brilliant. Anyway, back to my original point. Reader asks all you geezers out there to stretch your brains back to mid-70s.

 Nancy, Years ago there was a Jaimie’s (Jamie’s sp.?) restaurant on Lemon Ave.  They were known for their stuffed burgers.  One was with walnuts. Is there any way I can find this recipe? Or anything you know of that ?

Anybody else got a recipe request or story to tell?
