New burger joint for Race Street

Burger joints abound in carnivorous Cowtown, and now new Greasy Bend Burgers can be added to the list of options. Owner George Palmer, who formerly ran three area Cici’s Pizza locations, was encouraged by friend and Race Street Barber Shop owner Linda Wise to open a restaurant in an open space next door to her business. Palmer says he’s aware that competition in the Fort Worth burger realm is fierce.
“And I love every one of them,” said Palmer of longtime burger hot spots. “I love Kincaid’s, Dutch’s, Fred’s and Charley’s. I grew up in Cleburne, so I learned from the Burger Bar and Morris Neals.”


Palmer is “keeping things simple” by serving only third-pound burgers (the patties are fresh), and BLT ($3) and grilled cheese sandwiches ($2.50). Potatoes are cut daily for French fries ($1.50) and a fountain drink machine is on the way. The name Greasy Bend is what the area of Riverside was called before eventually acquiring the name Six Points, which refers to the intersection at Race St., Riverside Dr. and Belknap St.


Basic burgers start at $3.95 and go up to $4.95 for a bacon cheeseburger. Extras include mushrooms, avocado and grilled onions.
Palmer describes his burgers as “hot and fresh” and always served on a toasted bun.
“We toast the buns on the grill,” he added. “That’s part of a greasy burger.”
Greasy Bend Burgers is open Monday-Saturday from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. at 2919 Race St.
