In a city of great burgers, Trailboss Burgers gets overlooked.

But the Stockyards Station grill has upped its game with four new burgers along with its regular menu of Riscky’s fried catfish, stew and chili.

First and foremost, Trailboss is known first and foremost as a great place to watch the cowboys go by on West Exchange Avenue.

But it’s underrated as a comfy burger grill with salads, sandwiches and all the Riscky’s appetizers like fried pickles, onion strings and a brisket quesadilla.

The new burgers include a “Wrangler” half-pounder with onion strings and spicy Ranch dressing, and a “Gaucho” with fried jalapenos, grilled onions and pepper Jack.

The “Free Range” burger has cheddar, bacon and an egg along with the regular toppings.

These are $7-$9 burger platters with crinkle fries, not like those overpriced steakhouse burgers down Exchange.

Earlier, Trailboss added a “Herd” burger with special “chuckwagon” sauce, which tastes like a Thousand Island-hickory combination.

The menu also features a bison burger, hot dogs, sandwiches and a chipotle chicken salad.

Trailboss Burgers is open for lunch and dinner daily at 140 E. Exchange Ave., 817-625-1070, risckys.com/trailboss-burgers.
