More burgers, everyone: A fourth location of Village Burger Bar will open October 22 in North Dallas on Inwood Road just above Forest Lane. A release describes this location as being across the street from Jesuit College Preparatory School. But perhaps the more meaningful landmark nearby is Liberty Burger, mere walking distance away.

That's some pretty aggressive location scouting.

But to give them credit, husband-and-wife owners Mike and Susan Matta were early on the better-burger trend when they opened their first Village Burger Bar at West Village in 2005. The burger is a blend of tenderloin, chuck and brisket. They also do a popular portobello mushroom veggie burger and a turkey burger with dried cranberries.

The menu also includes salads and panini. This branch will have a full bar, with 19 taps for local beer and one tap for root beer. A patio will feature ping-pong tables.

This location will serve as an R&D development kitchen for creating new menu items. The first addition will be fried pickles as a starter, with a number of other recipes planned soon after opening.
