It’s always fun to discover a 5 Star burger. What’s even more fun is to find a Top 10 burger! Do I have your attention?
.
An incredibly fun Thursday, Twin Cities Burger Night at @parktavernslp. Hanging out with the #TCBN team of @phatphood & @shawnsrodgers, and our special guest and burger enthusiast, @burgeraweek . .
When Chef Eli Renn, @eli_renn, personally treats you to incredible food off his new menu at The Park Tavern, you just enjoy the moment and the food as much as you can. The Butcher Burger? I’ll try to describe it.
.
The Park Tavern – St. Louis Park / Butcher Burger – 5 Stars!
.
I vividly remember the very first Twin Cities Burger Battle at Mears Park in St. Paul. The People’s Choice winner and my favorite burger was the Chimichurri Burger at Gold Nugget Tavern & Grille. Their burger team was led by non-other than Chef Eli Renn. He has award winning burger creation is his blood. His new burger, off his new menu at The Park Tavern, the Butcher Burger is incredible! This beauty certainly stars with the beef. The two thin patty, super flavorful blend of ribeye, short rib, sirloin & butter, will literally melt in your mouth. The patties are seasoned well, juicy and have a nice sear to them. I also love the fact that these are soft and loose beef patties, but still stay together.
.
Beautifully melted American cheese tops each patty. Flavorful whiskey onions on top of that. Finishing off this masterpiece is their “horseradish aioli”. I have to tell you, this stuff is totally delicious! Too many horseradish sauces have a very sharp bite to them. Not here. It is mild and super flavorful. Get some on the side. The buttered, lightly toasted brioche bun from Mainstreet Bakery is fantastic as well.
.
This burger just has that “IT” factor. When you hold it in your hand, you feel at peace. It has the soft, buttery, melt in your mouth feel that you will absolutely love. I totally love this burger!
.
A Huge thank you to Chef Eli Renn and his great staff at The Park Tavern for making this such a special night. This burger will turn some heads.
.

The last time we went to @parlourbarstp, our server recommended we try the cauliflower next time we came in. We tried it this weekend, and are so glad we did- it was a great balance of sweet and spicy- try some the next time you are in. 🌶️

Great food and great beer? Sign me up! This place has award winning beer and I will give my own award to their food as well! A Triple D episode doesn’t hurt either.
.
Northbound Smokehouse & Brewpub – Minneapolis / Northbound Burger
.
What’s the saying? “Smoke ‘em if you got ‘em”. This place certainly does that. I’m here for the burger, and it’s a good one.
.
The hand pattied Angus beef was cooked perfectly, passed the juicy test and was seasoned pretty darn well. It comes with a leaf of bibb type lettuce and a fresh tomato slice. Mayo is also swiped on the top bun. The bun is a toasted egg bun from Denny’s 5th Avenue Bakery and it’s great.
.
Now for the additions. Listen carefully, please. You can add a few things if you like, and I liked the cheddar cheese. It was melted nicely and had that smokey cheddar flavor. I also added caramelized onions. I liked my choice. The last thing I added was their house cured bacon. This stuff is fantastic! They give you two big, thick slices. After you have this bacon, you’ll want to take pounds of it home with you. Guess what? You can! They sell it right there.
.
I really liked this burger, and there are so many other items on their menu that I want to try, I will be back many times. I can’t wait to get back and try something new. Check out their menu online.
.
If you are headed Southbound, turn that car around and head North, to Northbound Smokehouse & Brewpub!
.
Hand-cut Fries – Fantastic! I got a side of garlic aioli and a side of sriracha garlic aioli. Do it!
.
Braised Beef Poutine – Delicious! The fries are fantastic, and then they add smoked white cheddar cheese curds and braised beef gravy. C’mon, man! It’s killer!
.
Burger rating – 4 ½ out of 5 stars.

Pictured: The Birch burger: white American, pickles, fancy sauce...OMFG🤩 You know how people say simple is best? Well this is out of this world.

I’m always looking for more good burger options in the south metro. I’ve come across another one. It seems like a few Italian places have figured out the art of making a good burger.
.
Vivo Kitchen - Apple Valley / Vivo Burger
.
This farm to table restaurant is serving up some great food and happens to have a darn good burger. If you’ve had the burger at Zelo or Ciao Bella, this reminds me of those. And those are good burgers!
.
This is a thick patty, cooked exactly to my preference and very juicy! They chose provolone for their cheese. Caramelized onions and some good, thin sliced pickles top the patty as well. Under the patty, a fresh tomato sits on some greens and those marinate in their tasty special sauce. The house made griddled bun does the trick.
.
Vivo Kitchen has a very cool patio, so get down to Apple Valley and check it out.
.
Burger rating - 4 out of 5 stars.

House cut fries - Very good!

I’ve been putting our second new flavor on burgers and steaks with abandon! It’s based on Mexican oregano, thyme, and paprika. But the addition of garlic, onion, and de arbol chile are what really bring this bad boy to life. What are you going to put it on?! Come see me this weekend and let’s figure it out!#minneapolisfarmersmarket #butterismyhomie

I’m starving! I feel like something with an Asian flare. Where can I go? An Irish Pub? Yes, what a brilliant idea!
.
Celts Craft House – Apple Valley / Szechuan Burger
.
I’m not joking. Their August Burger of the Month has incredible Asian flavors coming at you from every angle.
.
Let’s start with what we know and love about all of their burgers, the half-pound, @patlafrieda blend of short rib & chuck. This was, as usual, cooked perfectly to my liking and was very juicy. Seasoned? Not this time, but I’m ok with it. Let me explain.
.
There is no need to season the beef when their homemade teriyaki sauce/glaze is poured over it providing the right amount of saltiness. This sauce will grab you right away. It’s full bodied, but not too overwhelming and not too salty. If you are going to give me sauce, then GIVE me sauce, as I like to say. They do. The teriyaki sauce oozes down from the top of the patty, but the bun collects it nicely and not much is lost.
.
I can’t tell you every component to Chef Al’s scratch made toasted sesame slaw, but it’s a beautiful, colorful, flavorful and a very important part of this burger. Roasted peanut Szechuan sauce is slathered on the top bun for even more Asian flavor. The Denny’s Fifth Avenue Bakery Pub Bun is fantastic! Soft, lightly toasted, but solid. A great bun.
.
I made sure I stopped in early this month so I could tell you this flavor bomb of a burger is available throughout the whole month of August. If you are craving some Asian food, make a stop at my favorite Irish place for their Szechuan burger. I really like this burger!
.
Burger rating – 4 ½ out of 5 stars.
.
Hand-Cut Fries – Fantastic as usual! Get a side of the garlic aioli to dip them in.

I just made my favorite butter to date!!! This beauty combines super fresh, high-fat butter with roasted garlic, toasted onion, sea salt, chipotle, and guajillo. It brings umami, smokiness, and just a tiny bit of heat. The best part is how versatile it is. We use it on burgers (of course) but it’s also great on steak, chicken, veggies, and as @phatphood pointed out, would be great on bread! It delivers. Every time. Come see me this weekend at @minneapolisfarmersmarket.

Who goes to a steak place and orders a burger? 🙋🏻‍♀️Me, I do. You gotta live life on the edge, especially when you’re at a place that knows how to handle beef. This burger at Burch Steak currently ranks #2 in my Twin Cities book! The Burch Cheeseburger is made with waygu beef, aged cheddar, slaw, smoked mayo and a poppy seed bun which happens to be a delightful combo. 🤤

Brunch? A meal eaten in the late morning that is a combination of breakfast and lunch. That is the definition you will find in the dictionary. My definition? The Brunch Burger at Celts Craft House!
.
Celts Craft House - Apple Valley / Brunch Burger

I know, I'm posting Celts Craft House again. Well, since it is my go to burger/food stop AND I happen to love their scratch made food, I'm not going to stop until you've paid them a visit. OK. I won't stop then either. 😉
.
July's Burger of the Month is the Brunch Burger and it is fantastic! Their half pound, signature Pat LaFrieda blend of ground chuck and short rib was spot on. Well-seasoned and cooked perfectly! Melty, American cheese tops the patty. Now the breakfast part, a couple strips of perfectly cooked bacon, topped with an over easy egg, then delicious Hollandaise sauce is poured over the egg. Another breakfast item is their cheesy hash browns, perfectly cooked on the grill sitting below the beef patty and on top of the bun.
.
Oh, the bun is an English muffin. They grill it on the flattop, which gives it a nice little toast, but the rest of it is soft and bouncy. It was great and soaked up everything nicely. They give you a few thinly sliced pickles, which I had to put on as I like to do.
.
You will have a fun time with this delicious breakfast/lunch (brunch) burger! 🍔
.
I loved this burger! My only regret is that I didn't get here until the 24th of the month. I won't make that mistake again. The good news is there is a week left for you to get the Brunch Burger AND you can get it all day, every day.

Another fun Thursday, Twin Cities Burger Night with @shawnsrodgers & @phatphood. We are working our way around construction in Northeast Minneapolis to get to our destination, The Draft Horse.
.
The Draft Horse - Minneapolis / Draft Horse Burger
.
Construction has slowed down business for The Draft Horse restaurant, but it's not stopping the #TCBN team. The Draft Horse has some great food and drinks, a cool building, a nice patio and a very long bar that you can belly up to as well.
.
The burger? It's good! They have so many local food places they get things from including the Limousin beef from @petersoncraftmeats, which was juicy, cooked perfectly and seasoned nicely. Two slices of American cheese totally covers that beef. Fresh tomato, lettuce and red onions are provided on the side to let you finish building it the way you like. Me? Pickles. A bunch of really thin sliced, tasty pickles is my jam. Make sure you add bacon when you get this burger. I opted not too and I'm regretting it. It's fantastic!
.
Then there's the "secret sauce" they slather on the bottom bun. Well done! Get some extra on the side. The bun is from @bakersfieldflourandbread and it's fantastic! Soft, yet firm, and nicely toasted.
.
This is a really good burger! The Draft Horse took care of everything we needed and they will take care of you. They are also running beer and wine specials with the purchase of a lunch or dinner.
.
#TCBN Team = 1, Construction = 0! Let's not let construction win. Stop by The Draft Horse and have a great time with some great food!

Welp...Tack on another charge of 3rd degree uvula battery for this Parlour Masterpiece. We sentence it to a short-term stay in the Stalker Tummies with no phone calls. This beauty never fails to produce a carnivore climax.

I’ve been posting so many sweets lately.. Here is everyone’s reminder that it is not all I eat! 🙈 I got this @revivalmn burger to go because I love picnics almost as much as I love burgers! 🍔
.
My biggest regret was not getting the double because I was definitely looking for more meat on this.
Overall, it was still totally worth it!

I was at an outdoor concert a couple of weeks ago and saw a food truck that was serving burgers. I didn't really think anything other than, I'm hungry and I could use a burger. Well, I got the burger and it was fantastic. I was like, what's up with this Bushel & Peck food truck? I looked online and saw that they also have a restaurant at Mill City Museum in Minneapolis. I had to go just to make sure this wasn't a fluke of some sort. It wasn't! 😀
.
Bushel & Peck - Minneapolis / Double Bushel Burger
.
The 4oz. double angus beef patties were seasoned very well and were very juicy. Done! Sold! It's over for me! A ton of American cheese enveloped each patty. This being a farm-fresh, locally-sourced restaurant, they give you a couple leaves of fresh bibb lettuce and two very fresh, large slices of tomatoes. They throw in some really good sliced house pickles on the side, which you have to add to your burger. They also swipe on a good amount of their tasty "special sauce" on the bottom bun. I didn’t get the berkshire bacon this time, but certainly will next time. The bun is a potato roll and was fine.
.
Make sure you find the Bushel & Peck restaurant or their food truck on your next burger visit. It is worth your time. I loved this burger!

I’m always up for knocking off Triple D’s whenever and wherever I can. The one and only Guy Fieri stopped in for a visit to this South Minneapolis restaurant.
.
Busters on 28th - Minneapolis / Buster’s Burger
.
Thursday means Twin Cities Burger Night, #TCBN, and despite being down a man, @shawnsrodgers , was off making something delicious look even more delicious, while myself and @phatphood tried to keep this burger train rolling.
.
I usually go with the signature burger and this time it was the Buster’s Burger. Prime Angus beef is always a good choice. It was cooked the way I like it and had some juiciness to it.
.
Their aged yellow cheddar was melted nicely and blanketed the patty very well. I felt like adding grilled onions and bacon. Good choice if I don’t say so myself. 😉
.
I liked the way they shredded their lettuce. Their special “Ten Thousand Lake sauce” was generously spread on the bottom bun. The Saint Agnus bun was soft and lightly toasted, although with all of that sauce and burger juice, the bottom bun did get a little soggy. No worries. I enjoyed this burger!
.
Give Buster’s on 28th a shot.

My burger journey has taken me all over Minneapolis, but I had not been to the Seven Corners area for a long, long time. What's my problem? I'm with my Twin Cities Burger Night team of @phatphood and @shawnsrodgers rockin' Republic with our special guest @tasha.dahl !
.
Republic - Minneapolis / Bacon Cheeseburger
.
What I love about the #TCBN team is that collectively we can try a ton of different burgers and food items and let you know about all of this good food. Republic has a great burger selection including a turkey burger and a vegetarian option if you so choose. Myself, beef reigns supreme!
.
My choice was simply the Bacon Cheeseburger. The beef had some juice to it. I chose aged cheddar, which was melted very well and had some good flavor to it. You can also choose Bleu cheese as well. The bacon was cooked the way I like it. They throw some caramelized onions on it for you as well. The brioche type bun was soft, lightly toasted and good. They keep this burger simple and sometimes that’s the best way to do it. They do have a garlic aioli and what they call Yum Yum sauce. I lobbed some of that seriously tasty Yum Yum sauce on my burger and it made it even better.
.
Make sure to check out posts from @shawnsrodgers , @phatphood & @tasha.dahl for their burger takes.

A special thanks to Emily and her staff for taking care of us and Rebekah for setting this up. Thank you, Tasha for joining us. It was great to meet you! 😊

There’s a cool place on the former Nye’s Polonaise Room site I think you should know about.
.
Twin Cities Burger Night with @phatphood & @shawnsrodgers stopped in to visit Sonder Shaker. They’re kicking out some kickass food and drinks.
.
Sonder Shaker - Minneapolis / Sonder Burger
.
Cassidy, Chef Jake, and their staff will totally take care of your wants and needs. We went through a bunch of creative drinks and appetizers leading up to the Sonder Burger.
.
The burger has a nice feel to it. The beef is a tri-blend of chuck, brisket and bacon, ground in house. It was juicy and flavorful. The smoked cheddar was melted beautifully and was a great choice.
.
They throw some fried onions on top. I’m not a huge fan of the highly piled, very thin haystack fried onions on my burger, but these are not those. They blended in very well and enhanced the overall experience. Chef Jake’s B&B pickles have a nice acidic bite to them. I loved them. The BBQ aioli is fantastic and that is drizzled on the top bun. Of course I got a side of it for my fries. 😉
.
The bun is soft and perfectly toasted with that nice little crunch around the outside of it.
.
This is a burger and a place you need to check out. Relax, kick back and enjoy some great food and a very good burger!

If it’s brunch time, what are you looking for on the menu? Yep! You nailed it! Burger! 🍔 I’m going to tell you the Blackbird Cafe serves a killer burger for brunch! Well, fortunately, it’s always on the menu. Oh, they’re also spinning vinyl from the bar. That was a nice touch. 🎼🎸
.
Blackbird Cafe - Minneapolis / Blackbird Burger
.
Their grass fed beef was seasoned beautifully, enhancing the flavor. It had a great char as well. They use Deer Creek colby cheese that tasted great and was melted perfectly. Next, they throw on some of their “bbird sauce”, which was delicious. Of course I got a side of it for my fries. It’s topped with a couple of onions rings which made their way directly into my mouth after a couple of full bites. 🙂
.
Their pickles are from Grandma Piehl’s. You get a bunch of them on the side. Take half of them and throw them on your burger. Enjoy the rest by themselves. They are very good. Is that it? No way! The house made bun is totally killer. It is soft, pillowy, lightly toasted and fantastic!
.
This is a great burger! 🙌 Hit the patio or belly up to the bar, but make sure you order the Blackbird Burger! It’s not a big burger, so don’t plan on sharing. 😉

Another Twin Cities Burger Night and it takes us to a new South Minneapolis place called Tap Society. It's a kiosk driven concept that pushes the self-serve concept to the forefront. I've got the full #TCBN crew here with me @phatphood & @shawnsrodgers and why not since we have Lil Miss Foodie herself, @kimlycurry as our special guest!
.
Tap Society - Minneapolis / Double Cheeseburger with Bacon
.
Self-serve beer? Yes, please! I'm liking this concept.
.
I was able to order my burger on the kiosk without any issues, so that was a good start. I ordered the Double Cheeseburger and added bacon and extra sauce. These are thin, smashed beef patties with a really good char on them. A slice of American cheese on each patty. Chopped, sauteed/grilled onions on top of that. You can get raw if you like. You also have a good variety of veggie options to add if you would like as well. The bacon was cooked perfectly. The bun was soft and worked well.
.
The star is their special sauce. It is fantastic! Get extra to throw on your burger and for your fries.

Oh my goodness. . .we have a new favorite burger. This beats all of the others. . ."The Dirty Double" on the patio (only) at Monello blew us away last night. So juicy, flavorful and that ooey gooey cheese was absolute perfection. Only available Mon - Thurs, but we will definitely be back for another. #cheeseburger #tcburgers #diningoutinmpls #diningoutinminneapolis #twincitiesburger #patiosippin #monellompls #monellocucina

There’s been a buzz about the weekend brunch at Lela. What about the burger?
.
Lela - Bloomington / Butcher Burger
.
The beef is from Iowa. Yeah, I think they know beef. A good char on it, pretty juicy. White cheddar cheese is always a good choice. Pickled shallots and a yellow tomato sit atop the shredded lettuce on the bottom bun.
.
There is a good garlic aioli on there, and I would have liked even more. The lightly toasted Denny’s 5th Ave. Bakery bun does its job.
.
The Butcher Burger deserves a shot.
.
Burger rating - 3.5 out of 5 stars.

Fries - Very good!
Macaroni and Cheese - Good.

Had a fantastic brunch/lunch with the hubbs today @blackbirdmpls care of @lordars! He ordered the 🍔 and after taking a bite, I wished I had too! Thick. Juicy. Cheesy. Great bacon flavor and the BEST BUN EVER. You know the bun is going to be great when you can smell its fresh-baked essence as you go in for a bite! The hubbs has moved this burger into his top 🤚🏻 it’s that good!! 🤤😋🔥💯 @tcburgersblog #burger #cheesy #bacon #thatbuntho #homemadepickles #rosemarygarlic #aioli #tcburgers #tcburgertour #daydate #weddinggift #mplsfood #getinmybelly #takemeback #foodiepics #foodielove

Twin Cities Burger Night with @phatphood , @shawnsrodgers and our special guest @alexlodner helping us do our best to blow up the burger at @monellompls called The Dirty Double!
.
A month ago I stopped in at Constantine to enjoy their delicious Cheeseburger and afterwards I was told by @iamxander86 that a special burger was being unveiled a couple of days later. I’m thinking, hey, cool, I’ll have to check it out. What he didn’t tell me was this burger just might be the best burger of 2018!
.
Monello – Minneapolis / The Dirty Double – 5 Stars!
.
This burger is flawless and incredible! A super flavorful, super juicy beef blend of chuck, brisket and butter. American cheese blankets both thin, charred patties and oozes out the sides. I love the griddled onions, the thinly sliced pickles, bacon and their delicious burger sauce. A nice toasted sesame seed bun completes this wonderful creation. After the first bite you’ll know you’ve got something special.
.
The Dirty Double is available on the patio from 4:00 – 10:00pm, Monday through Thursday. All I can say is “It’s patio time”! This is a special burger you are going to want to experience. 🍔
.
A special thanks to @alexlodner for stopping out with us and helping us kick off the #TCBN hashtag. We hope to populate that baby a lot! If you’d like to join us for a night, let one of us know. If you think an establishment would like to host a #TCBN, give us a shout.
.
The whole purpose of Twin Cities Burger Night is to celebrate these incredible burgers and these great restaurants around the Twin Cities. We will do all that we can to spread the word.
.
Another thank you to @iamxander86 , @kjillzone and Sasha for their great hospitality. 👏
.
Fries – Very good!

If you haven't stayed at the Hyatt Regency in Bloomington, you may not know much about this place. I didn't. Just a few minute walk from the Mall of America, there is yet another so called Hotel restaurant that could stand on its own.
.
Urbana Craeft Kitchen - Bloomington / Fondue Burger
.
Locally sourced ingredients is what they pride themselves on. Their beef, Black Angus from Simply Essentials, was seasoned well and charred well. This burger has two, thin patties.
.
The kicker on this burger is the fontina cheese. I'm a big fan of it on a burger and an even bigger fan when it drips down the side. Home run here! Nicely cooked smoke house bacon tops the patty. I like the thicker cut caramelized onions. Shredded lettuce and a very red bushel boy tomato are under the patties and sitting in the their swedish mustard sauce that is spread on the top and bottom buns. It was really good and I wanted more of it. The bun was buttery, soft and delicious.
.
Take a break from the hustle and bustle at the Mall of America and shoot on over to Urbana Craeft Kitchen. Take advantage of their nice patio.

Came here with “meh” expectations. Then we ordered the Bison Burger and pelvic blood-flow increased for all.
This baby was prepared to a perfect medium-rare and topped with chipotle cream cheese, jalapeño bacon, shredded lettuce and cilantro aioli. We all agreed that this, surprisingly, is one of the best burgers we’ve had in MSP.

Go to Busters, get the Bison Burger, change your undergarments and pantalonès, kiss the first 4 people you see and weep til sleep. It’s that sexy.

This burger just gave me a whole new reason for life, an entirely new perspective on my existence. But most importantly, I feel one with the herd. I in a state of absolute peace with bison stomping like the sound of thunder. Peace love and animal meat.

.
Twin Cities 400 Tavern - Minneapolis / Hangover Burger
.
Burger Hour with @shawnsrodgers & @phatphood found us at TC 400 Tavern, out just a little bit from downtown Minneapolis. This place is modern, clean and spacious. They've also got a killer patio area. We were able to sit up front in their sunroom type area where the lighting was perfect.
.
I chose the Hangover Burger. A super thick, juicy and flavorful patty. There is a heck of a lot more here. Pepper Jack Cheese gives it just a little kick. I got some great flavor from the smokey gouda cheese sauce, which you see running off the side of the burger with their really good Cry Baby Craig's aioli.
.
There are slices of fresh avocado beneath the beef patty. Thick, flavorful bacon and a fried egg on top of the patty finish this multitude of toppings and flavors. The bun from New French Bakery works beautifully.

This is the type of Hangover I look forward to having. I definitely think it's worth a stop out to TC 400 Tavern for this burger! Check out a couple more of their burgers at @phatphood & @shawnsrodgers.

I got teary-eyed when I first saw this burger. @hungrygirl_mpls made this beast with our sweet onion butter and she’s got us in awe. If you want to make one of these bad boys here are the details: It’s a double patty and one was formed with bacon and cheddar in it, and the other has pepper jack cheese in it. Then each burger is topped with a slice of bacon cheddar cheese, a slice of pepperjack cheese, and a slug of sweet onion butter, then wrapped in a whole wheat bun...you know, because whole wheat is healthier than white. Thank you for this inspiration! Have you been recruited by any local restaurants yet? God damn! #butterismyhomie

I started this COMPANY to share my love for midwest-inspired comfort foods. But I created this BRAND because I want to have fun and deliver a differential experience to my customers. I created a brand that I would want to buy. A brand that speaks my language and has my values. A brand that’s bold and confident. If you read this, thank you! And I hope my brand speaks to you too.

It’s been over 3 years since I’ve had the Cheeseburger at Lake & Irving. Delicious Cheeseburger, I’ve missed you so much! 🍔
.
Burger Hour brought myself, @phatphood and @shawnsrodgers to the corner of Lake and Irving for one of the best burgers in the Twin Cities! You knew that, didn’t you?
.
Lake & Irving - Minneapolis / Cheeseburger
.
The double pattied beef, a Pat LaFrieda blend, is quickly seared on a hot grill, is flavorful and juicy. Melted white cheese covers each patty beautifully. Their flavorful secret sauce is swiped on the buns. Tasty pickles are on the side, but I quickly added them to the top of my burger. You have the option to add duroc bacon. This bacon is juicy, delicious and cooked perfectly. I would definitely recommend adding it. The Patisserie 46 brioche bun is soft, buttered and toasted. It’s a really good bun.
.
I love this burger! 😋

Located across the street from Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, I can't believe I've never stepped foot inside this place before today. There are a bunch of Irish Pubs in this area, but I'm not sure how many of them have a good burger. This one certainly does!
.
The Liffey Irish Pub - St. Paul / Pub Club Burger
.
I kept seeing this burger special on Instagram every week, and if you put something out there enough, someone is going to bite. I bit. I want another bite!
.
The Pub Club Burger is just a fantastic Double Cheeseburger. Two thin patties with a great char, very flavorful and very juicy. Tons of cheese, melted beautifully on both patties. Special sauce on the bottom bun and a bunch of long slices of pickles busting out beneath the top bun. The bun is soft, lightly toasted and very good.
.
This is exactly what I look for in a thin pattied double cheeseburger. I loved it and immediately wanted another one. This burger is a little on the smaller side, so do not plan on sharing. Everyone should get their own.
.
The Pub Club Burger is available all day Sunday and all day Monday and only to Pub Club Members. Don't worry, it will take you all of a few minutes to join. Once you do, you will get a free appetizer. I used mine to get the delicious poutine. I will definitely be back to try another one of their burgers. 😋

This is yet another great option before a Wild game or a concert at the X.

I was asked where I wanted to go for dinner. I said “Thai sounds good. I haven’t had Pad Thai in a while”. I was then asked, “but I thought you wanted a burger, not Pad Thai”? I then said “you are correct, I want a burger and I want Pad Thai”. Lucky for me, Kuhn Nai Thai has their signature dish, the Pad Thai Burger!
.
Kuhn Nai Thai - Minneapolis / Pad Thai Burger
.
As you would expect, this burger has a very Asian flare to it. I’m not sure what goes into the house-made beef, but it definitely has a unique taste to it. It was good. It wasn’t super juicy, but the flavor was there.
.
I didn’t know what to expect on the noodles side. Chef Flip went with crisp noodles in a thin patty type shape. These sit on top of the beef patty and give the burger a nice crunch. The noodles are topped with lettuce, shredded carrots, green onions, bean sprouts and cilantro.
.
What makes this burger pop, is the delicious, specially made peanut sauce. It’s provided on the side, but you are expected to pour, yes pour it over the burger. I would pour it right over the beef patty itself and then put the noodles and toppings back on and pour the rest over that. The peanut sauce ties everything together. The bun was fine.
.
If you are expecting a regular burger experience, this won’t be it. This is Thai fused with American. Fusion they call it. I liked the experience.
.
So, the next time someone asks you where you want to go for a burger, you might just say Khun Nai Thai! 😯

I love the vibe and the décor at the Willy McCoys in Bloomington. A Huge Bar, Rustic wood booths, garage type doors that open up so you can enjoy the summer weather. A cool place. A cool burger! 😎
.
Willy McCoys – Bloomington / Irish Whiskey Burger
.
The beef patty has a nice flavored Irish Whiskey Glaze on it. They cooked it beautifully medium. It was pretty juicy. You will definitely know about the very distinct, very good Stout Beer Cheese sauce after your first bite. It’s unique and it’s really good!
.
Blue Cheese crumbles top the patty. They do not overpower the overall flavor of the burger at all. I’m not a huge fan of onion straws on my burger, but their onion tangles soaking up that Stout beer cheese sauce added a little something to them. I took a few off to eat them separately and they were good. The pretzel bun was super soft, very lightly toasted and just good.
.
I really liked the overall flavor and texture of this burger! I will go back and try this one or another one. Unless your last name is Hatfield, I’d recommend stopping in for a spell. 😉

It’s June and it was time for me to check out what Chef Al from Celts Craft House had whipped up for their Burger of the Month. Oh, California Turkey Burger? I’m thinking dry, flavorless meat. This might not go so well? I can just say, yeah, it was pretty good.
.
Well, I couldn’t say it was pretty good, because… it was quite possibly the BEST Turkey Burger I’ve ever had! Yes, I did say that. Oh boy, Chef Al has totally outdid himself with this creation. This will change the way you think about a turkey burger.
.
Celts Craft House – Apple Valley / California Turkey Burger – 5 out of 5 Stars!
.
It starts with their fresh turkey, ground in-house daily. Mixed in are sautéed onions, Portobello mushrooms, Worcestershire sauce and applewood-smoked bacon fat. It exploded with flavors, was super juicy and had such a great char from the flattop. You could take the turkey patty and eat it like a cookie if you like. I wouldn’t do that because it gets even better.
.
Their fantastic roasted jalapeno aioli is generously slathered on both buns. Don’t worry, it’s all flavor, not heat. The turkey patty sits on top of two juicy slices of tomatoes and a bed of peppery arugula. Not to be finished yet, a bunch of fresh sliced avocado sits atop the patty giving it an even more fresh taste. Their pub bun, from Denny’s Fifth Avenue Bakery, is soft, lightly toasted and close to perfect.
.
I absolutely love this burger! Yes, Chef Al, I have no second thoughts on giving you a 5 star rating on this one. Well done!
.
Non beef eaters, you NEED to get to Celts Craft House and check this out. Beef eaters, I think you’ll love this and you’ll be expanding your burger horizons. 😉
.
The Minnesota Spring Turkey Hunting season ended May 31st, but Celts Craft House has extended it through the month of June! 🦃

Summer in Minnesota means spending quality patio time whenever and wherever you can. It’s hard to beat the million dollar view from the patio at The Hideaway Burger Bar. It’s also going to be hard to beat the Burger lineup they have put together.
.
The Hideaway Burger Bar – Minneapolis / Bacon Cheeseburger
.
There has been a lot of buzz about The Hideaway since it opened a few weeks ago. I can see why. My first visit to this place with @shawnsrodgers & @phatphood for Burger Hour gave us a chance to see what that buzz was all about.
.
I picked the Bacon Cheeseburger. The 6oz. Handmade Prime Angus Beef Patty was cooked perfectly, seasoned well and was plenty juicy. American cheese blankets the patty. I’ve had Nueske’s bacon a few times and in my opinion, you can taste the difference. It was cooked perfectly and was delicious! I added some tasty caramelized onions to the mix. Below the patty there is a juicy tomato, some red onions, a slice of bibb lettuce to kind of hold the juices in and a few thick sliced pickles on the side. The top bun has a dollop of their secret sauce, which was super good! This bun was soft and lightly toasted. I think we have a winner! 👏
.
I enjoyed the heck out of this burger! Check out the reviews of The Lamb Hot Damn from @shawnsrodgers and The Bourgeois from @phatphood. You’ll find similar likings from them. Thank you to Jasmine and Ashley for taking such great care of us. You are the best! 🙌
.
Enjoy the view of downtown Minneapolis from across the Mississippi River while you’re enjoying one of these very good burgers at The Hideaway Burger Bar.
