If you’re looking for a place where “everybody knows your name” and where you can get some of the best wings and burgers in town, then look no further than the Rusty Beagle located off FM 407 on the Lewisville and Highland Village border.
Husband-and-wife team Charles and Jackie Carlock took over running the restaurant in 2015 after Charles’ dad, Rusty, passed away from cancer. The two have continued Charles’ father’s legacy and have created a beautiful environment where everyone feels welcome from the customers to the staff.
The Rusty Beagle is, by definition, a sports bar, but it’s also a gathering place for Little League Teams, a family dinner spot, a Super Bowl party venue, a great place to grab some lunch, and so much more.
We did mention that these guys have some of the best wings and burgers in town – in fact, they recently won Best Wings from Best of Denton County 2020! They have a wide range of sauces for their wings ranging from Mild to Asian Sesame to Mango Habanero, and you can order them naked or breaded.
Two of their crowd-favorite burgers are the Rajun Cajun made with blackened seasoning, sauteed mushrooms, pepper jack cheese, bacon, and a creole aioli; and their namesake burger – The Rusty – which is topped with tender smoked (in-house) brisket, shredded cheddar cheese, red onion, chipotle BBQ sauce, and two halved bacon-wrapped jalapenos. Yes, that’s real life. That sucker is about 2 feet tall and it’s delicious.
The Rusty Beagle also has some killer sandwiches on their menu like their Triple Stack Clubhouse Sandwich and their Reuben made with house-made corned beef, sauerkraut, and thousand island dressing.
And, of course, at the center of the Rusty Beagle is their bar which has 24 taps with craft beers that rotate through seasonally, cocktails, whiskeys, wines, freezer shots, and more. They have Happy Hour every day of the week with different daily specials, and on the weekends you can find live music on the patio.
All in all, between the food, the environment, the people, and the sports, you’ve got to make the Rusty Beagle your new hangout. You’ll love getting to meet Charles and Jackie and the whole team and you’ve got to try out The Rusty Burger while you’re there!
