Burgers, and Pizza, and Fun … Oh My!
Kincaid’s Burgers is a MUST when you’re in Arlington. In 1946, Charles Kincaid opened a grocery store and meat market. With a small $25 grill, the meat cutter started making burgers, which he sold to customers from the surrounding neighborhoods. The grocery store was soon replaced by a hamburger grill, and the rest is history.
Kincaid’s burgers are made from natural, vegetarian-fed, hormone- and preservative-free beef that is cut and ground daily at the restaurant. When you walk into Kincaid’s, you will automatically sense the laid-back, down-home atmosphere and marvel at the nostalgic decor on the walls and even hanging from the ceiling. Choose from half-pound or quarter-pound burgers, and don’t forget to order a side of french fries or onion rings. If you have a sweet tooth, try one of Kincaid’s incredible desserts like a chocolate shake or banana pudding.
For more delicious burger goodness, make a stop at Mooyah. Not only does Mooyah serve fresh Angus beef, all their burgers are served on a non-GMO potato bun. Try one of their menu favorites or check out the Hall of Dang! selection of burgers you never thought could exist. You can also build your own and can create a burger masterpiece using a variety of proteins, toppings, cheeses, and sauces. Make sure to order a side of hand-cut Idaho or sweet potato fries. To finish out your meal, try one of their thick, creamy milkshakes.
If your gang is craving pizza, you have to make a stop at the Mellow Mushroom. With a dizzying array of toppings—think bacon and banana peppers—kiddos will love building their own pizza, or you can order one of their specialty pies. The Mellow Mushroom’s family-friendly vibe is perfect for a relaxing meal while exploring Arlington with the family.
