Average burger with meat from Sysco Buckhead. Decent quality meat but expected more from an Iron chef I guess with all the great beef in TX. Cash only. Why would anyone put curry in a pickle for a burger?! Weird and Gross! Filthy dirty restaurant. Almost left when we saw the 3 cats at our feet. Could not eat upstairs... More

My husband and I each had the Dirty Love Burger and fries. The love sauce and quail egg were good but we were confused about the actual hamburger patty. I was surprised to find an eerie similarity to the bulk frozen patties you find in a wharehouse store. Dry, flavorless and chewy hamburger patty covered up with dressed up thousand... More

Knew Tim Love had a burger place somewhere in the stockyards but not where and we happened upon it by chance. small place mostly outside seating but the burgers where YUMMY. My mom and sister both had the kraut dog and they raved too. Large fries will feed 3 lol... very cheap and delish.

The burgers were good. You'll find an interesting assortment. Enjoyed the friendly atmosphere, but you may be cold if the weathers not good.

Don't forget to bring cash as this is the only form of payment they accept. Great burgers and hand cut fries. Cheap cold beer accompanied by wonderful live music starting at noon on Saturdays. This is a great venue with such a unique set-up (completely outdoors, wedged in between buildings & built up several floors) Good on cold or warm... More

Fantastic lunch -- I had a cheeseburger with onion rings, and my companion had a burger with a tortilla and fries. Both very enjoyable. They had a singer, Brad Hines, who did a great job. Definite repeat if we're in the area. Cash only!!!

Brought my 10 year old daughter here on the advice of friends who LOVE this place. They do not accept credit cards, so I had to take her into the bar next door to order our food and drinks, which felt super awkward, and we smelled like smoke the rest of the day:( Other than that, the food was great,...

We come here every year because my wife has to have the nachos. The burgers are good also. They have this balcony seating area, so you can sit and people watch, which is half the fun to be had in the stockyards. It is an outdoor restaurant, and between 2 buildings so it can be chilly on windy days.

Love, Love, Love the Love Shack! The Dirty Love burger was hands down the best burger I have ever eaten! Fun atmosphere with multi-levelled structure overlooking the very busy street. Great for people watching and beer drinking!

We stopped by unsure of what to expect. My family was in from out of town. My sister wanted to share a burger and fries... After her first bite she quickly handed me a ten dollar bill and pulled her other half of the burger back towards her. She demanded that she had made a mistake and was taking her... More
