Herd Burger


The Star-Telegram profiles the retirement of the owners of Herd's Hamburgers over in Jacksboro. No fear - the son will run it now.

I've been to Jacksboro a thousand times. I've never eaten there.

More photos of the joint at the bottom of this page.

I used to spend every summer when I was a kid in Jaxboro with my aunt and used to drive through there alot on my way to Throckmorton as an adult and have never eaten there. My family thought I was some kind of commie when I mentioned that when we heard they might be closing.

Double cheeseburger W/ Jal nO/T

I've ordered more times than I can count. Herds is surely the best I've had. I hope the son can cook like pops.

I read somewhere Hayden Panattiere's "boyfriend" is 31 years old. That's sick. Even when he was of an age when it wouldn' be so creepy to date an 18 year old kid say 25, she was 12 years old at the time. Four years ago she was 14. Finally someone outcreeped me. Touche' dude whoever you are touche'.

Enjoy your retirement Claude.

I cannot imagine any person going to Jacksboro and not eating a Herdburger. Great food and family atmosphere.

The ST article about the Herds was really good.

You know you've been to Herd's too many times when Orlene knows exactly how you, your spouse and your kids like their burgers! She's awesome!

I'VE GOT TO AGREE WITH THE COMMENT ON HOW AWESOME ORLENE IS ABOUT BURGERS AND PEOPLE'S NAMES AND FACES... I GREW UP IN JACKSBORO, AND CLAUDE USED TO BE MY SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHER, WENT TO SCHOOL WITH DANNY AND LAURIE, IF YOU'VE EVER HAD THE CHANCE TO MEET THESE FINE FOLKS YOU KNOW THEY ARE ALL AWESOME!!! GONNA MISS YA BUT I KNOW DANNY AND SHERRY WILL MAKE IT ALL WORK JUST LIKE DAD AND GRANDDAD HERD HAVE FOR THE LAST 100 YEARS!!

Is it true that cannibals don’t eat clowns because they taste funny?
