Juicy, cheesy burgers and a mountain of fries make this the best burger place in Denton. They have been arounf since God made dirt and their formula can't be beaten.

This is one of the best burgers in the Denton area.The fries are fresh cut and the home cooked beans are out of this world.The vegetables are pilled high and the cheddar cheese is even higher. The meat is high quality not frozen and is charco broiled another great place to eat.

This is a great local joint. We found it by accident in the rental car GPS listing. Limited menu done right. Burgers and fries made fresh to order. No additives or preservatives. Busy with locals who are actually talking to eachother! Love it, wish they had something like this whete I live!

It is no longer at this address. The only location is now on Sunset in Denton, but the burgers are still just as awesome as they were when I went here in high school. I always make it a point to have a burger from Denton Co. when I visit home.

We have been coming to Independent for years. Ever since I was a kid. The burgers are big so you may have to split one. I have always loved the grated cheese that they put on cheeseburgers and you can even request to have cheese on your french fries. The beans are awesome and are self-serve. The fries are self-serve... More

This downtown location is now a different, better hamburger joint. Denton County Independent Hamburger is still open at 715 Sunset St., Denton, TX 76201. I can't recommend it though. The burgers are only so-so and the chili is awful.

Burgers are good and chips are even better. The one on the square which has now been replaced by LSA seemed to serve yummier burgers, but the chips and beans make up for that.

Best hickory burgers around. Tops on my list. Worth traveling to. I live in Michigan but when I travel to see family in Texas my first stop is Denton County Independent Hambuger.

The Denton County Independent Hamburger has been around for decades, with the original location on The Square. I don't know why they moved (LSA Burger is in the old location), but they have one other site across town that isn't too hard to find. it's in a strip mall just across Kroger on University. The burgers are the sloppy, greasy... More

Great burgers in a fairly small diner overlooking the courthouse square. Its nice to find somewhere that doesn't feel like its part of a huge burger chain. The cheeseburger is awesome.
