A show of hands, please.  Who needs more butter in their lives.  I do! 😊
.
Citizen Supper Club - St. Paul / Citizen Burger
.
If I were to describe this burger to you, I would say “buttery soft”. Everything about this burger is soft, like butter.  The 1/2 pound beef patty, cooked to beautiful medium, is soft and juicy and infused with thyme and shallots.  It’s also slightly bigger than the bun.  I like it!  No shortage of American cheese blankets the patty.  It’s also topped with a red wine butter.  The pickles are thinly sliced and very good.
.
I would describe the bun as buttery soft as well.  I think you get it by now.  Buttery!
.
The bottom bun did get pretty soaked during the experience.
.
Citizen Supper Club is yet another St. Paul downtown option to take advantage of.

I locked myself in a room with all of the powers that be from www.tcburgerblog.com trying to finalize a Top 10 Twin Cities Burger list.  The fact that it was only me, did not make the decisions any easier or quicker. 😉🤣
.
Top 10 lists are not easy and can be a little stressful, but I’ve actually enjoyed the process since I had to take the time and think back to when I had these incredible burgers and how much I enjoyed them.  Could I be wrong?  Absolutely!  I had to pick 10 though.
.
Here we go:  These are the 10 best overall burgers that I have actually experienced.  In chatting and talking with many people, I think I’ve hit most of the potential Top 10 burgers in the Twin Cities.  If you’ve ever seen my website, this list will not be a surprise, as I keep a current Top 10 list as well as the other top burgers in the Twin Cities on the front page of the site.
.
This list is only about the taste of the burger as a whole.  Nothing else figures in.  There are a ton of so called Minnesota iconic burgers and Minnesota Hall of Fame burgers that are incredible, but will not be on this list.  These are my favorite 10 burgers right now!  I put Juicy Lucys in a different category.
.
The last thing I want to say is this, and it is very important and what I consider to be a golden rule for all of us burger lovers.  This is a list of MY favorite burgers in the Twin Cities.  All of you have your favorite burgers, and whatever those burgers are, those are truly the Top Burgers in the Twin Cities! 🍔

Before I put out my Top 10 Burgers of the year list, I wanted to have a little fun and share another list that’s very near and dear to my heart.
.
If you actually read my short novels describing each burger I post about, you know my most important burger criteria.  I will praise or gripe about it.  Is it JUICY!!!
.
The answer is “YES”! These are the Top 9 Juiciest Burgers I have had this year.  The one and only criteria is juiciness.  OK, maybe flavorful juiciness.
.
The juices from these burgers dripped onto my plate with every bite.  There are a ton of juicy burgers out there, these are just the ones I’ve actually had and the ones that made me go “Wow”! I had to limit it to Nine.
.
I want to give these fine establishments some Juicy Love!  The pictures go from left to right and top to bottom.

I was hoping for a cool little video op when I ordered this one.  It did not disappoint!
.
Sweeney’s Saloon – St. Paul / Hangover Burger
.
The Hangover Burger sounded pretty cool, but it also tasted pretty cool as well.  The ½ pound Angus patty looks very big as it pushes out from the edges of the bun.  It was cooked medium and was juicy.
.
Pepper Jack and American cheese top the patty.  You may see another cheese on there, which is Beer Cheese Soup.  I saw that they used it on their Beer Cheese Burger and thought I’d have them drizzle some on for me.  It was thick so it didn’t run all over the place.  It was really good.
.
Next, they add pastrami, a couple slices of bacon and top it off with a sunny side up egg, which was perfect for a little video action! (swipe left for the yolk porn video)  I added nicely grilled onions.
.
They slathered a little bit of chipotle mayo on the soft, buttery brioche type bun.  It became a little messy after a little bit, but that is half the fun!
.
If you have a hangover, stop in for this burger.  If you don’t, still try it or another one of their burgers.  I’m guessing they are pretty darn good!
.
I really liked this burger!
.
French Fries – thin and good.

Billy G’s – Savage / Super Cheese Double Stack with Bacon
.
This is an impressive looking creation!  Two thick beef patties, flavorful and very juicy!  They will only cook them to Medium Well, but this is an example of how you can cook them like that and still have a juicy burger.  Nice job! 👍
.
There are two slices of American cheese on each patty.  That’s a lot of cheese.  Bring it on!  A thick slice of tomato and shredded lettuce placed below each of the patties makes it grow even taller.  I added grilled onions, which were delicious and a couple slices of bacon.  Throw some tasty Billy sauce on the lightly grilled, soft bun and you have a beautiful, totally messy, delicious, fun experience!
.
This burger was a blast!  I was told they might be adding a triple patty burger to their menu shortly.  I’m in!  There are a lot of other very interesting sounding burgers on their menu as well. 🍔

It’s a double patty and gets a great char from the flattop.  It’s not overly juicy, but is good.  A slice of white American cheese on each patty.  The pickles are made in house and they are very good.  The grilled onions are perfectly cooked and flavorful.  The mayo gives it a little flavor and creaminess.  The bun is soft, buttery and sweet.

Burch Steak – Minneapolis / Burch Cheeseburger – 5 out of 5 stars!
.
The fun part of this never ending burger journey is when you come across a burger like this.  The enjoyment from the first bite to the last is undescribable, but I’ll try. 😉
.
The beef is flawless!  Its blend has the much desirable, Wagyu beef in it.  I have been very lucky lately in that I’ve had a lot of juicy burgers.  This one might be the juiciest and most enjoyable beef I’ve ever had on a burger!  It was cooked perfectly!  I could have just taken it off the bun and ate it like a steak.
.
The other thing that will grab your attention is their spiced paprika aioli.  My tastebuds were doing cartwheels.  It’s terrific!  Their cheese is aged cheddar and it was good.  I can’t tell you everything that goes into their housemade coleslaw, but it was good, especially smothered in that aioli.  I don’t typically put coleslaw on my burgers, but don’t let it deter you from trying this burger.
.
The bun is different from the very common brioche bun.  It’s a buttered Kaiser roll and it works.

The hand formed angus beef patty was cooked absolutely perfect!  It was flavorful and juicy!  Most of their burgers have cheddar cheese, but the Tavern Burger has American cheese, delicious apple wood smoked bacon, a couple slices of tomatoes, shredded lettuce, a few pickles and a sliced red onion, which I swapped out for really good grilled onions.  They were closer to caramelized onions in texture.  They add some of their own Zesty Tavern Sauce to the top bun.  The onion bun was soft and lightly toasted.

Before the end of the year, I’m hitting any possible Top 10 burgers I haven’t hit before or that need a revisit.  It’s been a couple of years since I had the burger at Lyn65.  While it may or may not make my Top 10, it’s a very good burger!
.
Lyn65 – Richfield / Chicago Style Diner Burger - 4 out of 5 stars.
.
First off, you can get this in a single or a double.  Note that the single is a double and the double is a triple.  Forget your math skills and go with the double since you really want the triple as these are pretty thin patties equaling just over a half pound.
.
The beef was very juicy, and I love juicy as you are reminded of at every opportunity. 😋  Plenty of American cheese added to my enjoyment.  Good Dijonaise is spread on.  The pickles were good.  I thought they were more on the cucumber tasting side.  I opted for the bacon as I am want to do and it was good and added on the top two patties.  The top bun was good, but the bottom bun seemed very thin and was soggy.
.
It’s a good burger and worth the stop for the burger.
.
French fries – a little too crispy for me.
Chicken – OK.
Mac & Cheese – OK.  Lacked creaminess.

In the next few weeks, I’ll be revisiting my current Top 5 Burgers in the Twin Cities so I can make my final decision on Burger of the Year!
.
Tonight I went back to Lowry Hill Meats for the LHM Burger.  Their blend of beef is beautifully charred and incredibly juicy.  It was not my preferred pink this time, but still very juicy.  The House-made American cheese is delicious.
.
There is a really good mustard aioli type sauce and good grilled onions on top.  The pickles have to be my favorite and the brioche bun is at the top of my list as well.  The lettuce was different this time around in that it was kind of chopped lettuce as before it was Bibb type lettuce.  I prefer the Bibb.

The former Lou Nanne’s Steakhouse, and now called Tavern23, certainly seem to know their beef.  The beef is the runaway Star here.  This was one of the juiciest burgers I’ve ever had.  Check out the juicy little video attached. 😊  I know I keep saying it, but if you give me juicy beef, I’ll keep coming back time and time again.
.
A slice of cheddar cheese on each patty.  Two slices of fresh tomatoes and fresh shredded lettuce topped the burger.  The bun was soft and lightly toasted.  I wanted a little something more as I usually do, and requested they add bacon and grilled onions.  The bacon was great as well as the grilled onions.
.
A couple of things to note.  I’m not a huge fan of cheddar cheese on my burger.  It was fine as always, but I did ask for American cheese.  I also asked for pickles, but after searching on my plate and on the burger, none were found. 😕
.
Finally, one thing that may not bug you, but it bugs me a little bit, is that my burger and all of the tables burgers were cut in half.  While I think it does look cool, I would rather make the decision to cut my burger or not.  C’mon, I have to get a good picture. 😉

Note:  This is not a repeat post.  Normally, I don’t do back to back posts for the same establishment, but since this second post is a Juicy Lucy and not a regular burger, I’m going outside of my burger box and am going to do it.  This Juicy Lucy also happens to be pretty awesome! 😊
.
Dan’s Bar & Grill – New Trier / Cream Cheese Wonton Burger – 4 out of 5 stars!
.
There are a so many Juicy Lucy’s on the menu, it was very hard to pick one.  I was very happy with my choice.  The patty has a nice flat top char to it.  It is stuffed with a lot of flavorful cream cheese.  Normally, I don’t go for chips on my burger, but this wonton wrapper chip added a nice soft crunch to the experience.  Another main component to this is the sweet chili sauce.  It is fantastic! .
.
The brilliance of this creation, is that a wonton wrapper chip is put on the bottom bun and then the burger is placed on top of the wonton wrapper.  The sweet chili sauce is then poured over the beef patty and the wonton wrapper collects the sweet chili sauce that is dripping down the sides of the burger.  One more wonton wrapper chip is placed on top of the burger.
.
As you can see in the picture, there is a lot of extra sweet chili sauce that you can use to dip your burger in throughout this experience.  I loved doing that!  Let’s not forget the beautiful, soft, lightly toasted bun. .
.
The next time I stop in for this Juicy Lucy, I might just ask if I could get some chopped jalapenos put inside or on top of the burger.  You would get the heat from the jalapenos, and then the cream cheese and sweet chili sauce would totally cool it off.  My guess is they’ve done something like that before.  Hey, I’m just a Dan’s Bar & Grill rookie. 😉
.
I’m giving Dan’s Bar & Grill some extra love because not only can you get a great burger here, you can get a great Juicy Lucy here!  They have weekly burger/Juicy Lucy specials that look incredible as well.  Keep your eye out for them.

Since I live in Rosemount, which is not very far from here.  This just might be my new “go to” burger stop.  I really like this Juicy Lucy!

Note: This is not a repeat post. Normally, I don’t do back to back posts for the same establishment, but since this second post is a Juicy Lucy and not a regular burger, I’m going outside of my burger box and am going to do it. This Juicy Lucy also happens to be pretty awesome! 😊
.
Dan’s Bar & Grill – New Trier / Cream Cheese Wonton Burger – 4 out of 5 stars!
.
There are a so many Juicy Lucy’s on the menu, it was very hard to pick one. I was very happy with my choice. The patty has a nice flat top char to it. It is stuffed with a lot of flavorful cream cheese. Normally, I don’t go for chips on my burger, but this wonton wrapper chip added a nice soft crunch to the experience. Another main component to this is the sweet chili sauce. It is fantastic! .

The sign out front says “You Gotta Try One Of Our Burgers”. If I was creating a sign for Dan’s Bar & Grill, it would say exactly the same thing!  I was going to stop in a few weeks ago, but then I heard Jason DeRusha @derushaj was going to be doing a DeRusha Eats story here and I decided to wait until I could see it.  It’s a cool story about the family and the bar.  You should check it out before making the trek down here.

Dan’s Bar & Grill – New Trier / Bacon Cheeseburger + 4 1/2 out of 5 stars!

This burger has so much going for it.  The beef had a nice char, it had good flavor and most important of all, it was juicy!  You know I harp about dry beef.  This was not dry!  Loved it! 😋
.
I would have been totally happy with just the basic hamburger, but then they add the toppings.  It was like they gave me double the American cheese, double the delicious bacon, double the perfectly cooked grilled onions and double the pickles.  I also had them put some of their house-made horseradish mayo, which was delicious.
.
All of this goodness in a great, very lightly toasted, beautiful bun!  Just to recap, this burger comes with bacon and American cheese.  I asked them to add grilled onions, pickles and the horseradish mayo.

This place is definitely worth the stop.  It’s on your way to Red Wing or Treasure Island Casino off of Highway 50.  Black Jack and Slots are a gamble, Burgers at Dan’s Bar & Grill are a Sure Thing! 😉

Parlour Burger! 🍔 Starting today, if I feel like posting about a burger I’ve already reviewed, I’m going to do it.  There will be a good reason, trust me.  Also, I promise it won’t be a five or six paragraph post, at least that’s my goal. 😉
.
I’ve had a few, shall we say, OK burgers in the last few days.  Most of them had dry beef and a couple of them didn’t have a lot of flavor.  FYI, there are quite a few burgers I don’t post on IG, but only review on my website. 😕
.
I just had the Parlour burger at Target Center and let me tell you, it makes everything in the burger world right again.  The double patty is juicy and flavorful, the cheese is great and the bun is fantastic!
.
Do yourself a favor and if you run across a couple of burgers that you were disappointed in, go have a Parlour burger at the restaurant or at Target Center for a Timberwolves game.  It will totally realign your beef, cheese and bun experience!

It truly is one of the best, if not the best in the Twin Cities!

I wasn’t sure what to expect from Chef Doug Flicker’s new restaurant, Bull’s Horn Food & Drink as far as decor.  I had never been to the previous Sunrise Inn spot.  What I was expecting was some good food, and that’s what I got.
.
Bull’s Horn Food & Drink – Minneapolis / Bull’s Horn Burger with Cheese & Bacon
.
Don’t expect a burger like Chef’s Esker Grove or Sandcastle burgers.  This is quite different.  What stands out is the special sauce they put on it.  It is delicious and got better with each bite.  The cheese was a little thicker than most and quite enjoyable.  The bacon was cooked perfectly and was just good bacon.  Shredded lettuce and good pickles finished up the toppings.
.
The beef is a thin patty with a good char from the flattop.  Mine was not overly juicy, but just fine.  My preference would have been to add a second patty, to up the beef to bun ratio.  The bun was soft, lightly toasted and pretty close to perfection.  It’s not a large burger, so get an appetizer. 😉
.
Take yourself back in time a little bit and make a stop at Bull’s Horn Food & Drink.

French fries – McDonald’s style, salted and good.

Have you ever looked at a menu and saw over 50 different burgers on it?  Which one do you pick?  You don’t want to regret picking the wrong one.  I got your back!  The best burger to pick at Wyatt’s Twisted Americana is “The Wyatt”. 🍔
.
How do I know?  OK, truth is I asked a couple of people. 😉  But, this is a good burger.  Let me tell you about it.
.
Wyatt’s Twisted Americana – Eagan / The Wyatt
.
They put their burgers in categories like Classic, Smoked, Craft, Twisted, etc.. The Wyatt is in the Fusions category, combining two or more good things to make one great thing, or something like that. .
.
The big standout is the caramelized chipotle onion and beer cheese sauce poured over the smokey bacon and cheddar infused fresh ground beef.  You get that? 😮
.
The cheese sauce is delicious!  The diced chipotle onions are soft and really good as well.  You also get a fresh slice of lettuce, raw onion and tomato, with pickles as well.
.
The beef is mixed with bacon and cheddar cheese and was cooked to my medium liking. 😎
.
The bun was lightly toasted and good.  No issues.
.
Wyatt’s Twisted Americana is definitely worth a stop.  Check it out!

If I said we were having Italian food tonight, would you think we were having a burger?  I’m guessing not, but that’s exactly what I’ll be suggesting since having the Bella Burger at Zelo.  They have been around for many years.  I’ve had great pasta and steaks here, but now when I hear someone say Zelo, I’m going to think “burger”!
.
Zelo – Minneapolis / Bella Burger – 4 ½ out of 5 stars!
.
I didn’t expect this burger to be good, much less outstanding!  Rick Nelson from the Star Tribune loves this burger and I do too.
.
The premium beef, sourced locally, is the star of this show.  It is a big, thick, super juicy, flavorful hunk of meat.  This is one where the juices drip onto the plate with every bite.  It was cooked perfectly for me.  It could not have been any better.  You will get a jaw workout with this one.
.
You don’t see a lot of places use Fontina cheese on their burgers, but personally I love the choice.  I love Fontina in Mac & Cheese and I love it on a burger.  It is a nutty, creamy, Italian cheese.  Soft, chopped, caramelized onions, two slices of fresh tomatoes, good pickles, and greens are placed on top and on the bottom of the patty.
.
The 2nd star of this burger is their “special sauce”. The server said it was a mix of mustard, mayo, worcestershire and ketchup.  I’ll just call the mix, fantastic!  It is generously slathered on the top and bottom of the bun and it has that distinct taste you look for.  The bun is soft, perfectly toasted, with the crispy edge around the outside.  I do have to say with the juiciness of the beef, the tomato and the special sauce, the bottom bun did get a little soggy.
.
The next time you are down by the Nicollet mall, stop into Zelo and ask for the Bella Burger.  It’s a must have Twin Cities burger!  I loved it!

House-cut fries – Good.
Braised Meatballs – Outstanding

If you’re talking about Minneapolis history, you just might be talking about the Band Box Diner.  It dates back to the 1930’s.  If you Google it, there is also a nice story on how a fundraiser a couple of years ago helped buy a new grill and help save the diner.
.
If you don’t check this place out for the history, check it out for their Double Cheeseburger with bacon and fried onions.  It’s a great diner burger!  On their menu it says “Turning Grease into a Feast for Over 70 years”.

Band Box Diner – Minneapolis / Double Cheeseburger with Bacon
.
Fresh Angus beef, seared beautifully on the flat top grill, my favorite way to cook a burger.  The grilled onions and bacon were cooked perfectly and both were delicious.  Plenty of good, melty, American cheese.  Good dill pickle slices.  What surprised me was the bun.  No corners are cut on this beauty of a bun.  It is soft, but firm, and perfectly toasted with the little outer edge crunch I love.
.
You can certainly go with the single patty, but the bun is big enough to add a second patty and get the beef/bun ratio close to perfection.

If you crave the diner experience or just want a really good diner style burger, The Band Box Diner will give you that.  It was a great experience!

St. Genevieve has been on my burger hit list for a long time.  I knew I had to try it before the end of the year in order to see where it fit in with my favorite burgers.  In recent months they changed the burger, which concerned me a little bit, but I had heard some good things about the new burger.  Let me just say that this burger is fantastic! 🍔😎
.
St. Genevieve – Minneapolis / Bordeaux Burger – 4 ½ out of 5 stars!
.
They do take some risks with this burger, but it hit all of the right notes with me.  I have to start with this delicious, flavorful, cooked absolutely perfect beef patty.  It reminded me of filet mignon.  It was a thing of beauty.  The brie cheese was creamy and buttery.  The perfect thing to match with Brie are sautéed mushrooms.  The mushrooms were delicious.  There is also a dark, thick, salty bordelaise sauce that they pour over the beef patty, mushrooms and brie.  The flavors are outstanding!
.
The top bun is slathered with a garlic aioli.  Their choice of pickles is very unique and I loved it.  They use cornichons, which are basically sharp, vinegary flavored pickles.  I couldn’t help but chomp on a few of them before the pictures. 😊
.
The bun is a thing of beauty as well.  You won’t find a better one.  The bun is soft and buttery and toasted ever so beautifully.  It has that lightly toasted crunch around the edge of the bun, which I love.
.
I mentioned some risks earlier.  I think it was a little risky to use mushrooms, cornichons and to pour the bordelaise over the burger since you only offer one burger.  The bordelaise has a powerful flavor and my bottom bun was a little soggy from the liquid.
.
If you have concerns about the risky choices, check them at the door and just enjoy the heck out of this burger.  I really loved it!

Do you want to be a millionaire?  I do!  That’s my final answer! 😉

You can, at least, feel like a millionaire at Hazelwood Food + Drink located across from the Mall of America.
.
Hazelwood Food + Drink – Bloomington / The Millionaire – 4 out of 5 stars.
.
This is a good burger!  It’s starts with Premium Iowa Black Angus Beef.  It was flavorful, pretty juicy and cooked medium.  You know I like medium. 😊
.
Taleggio cheese is soft, tangy and plentiful.  Garlic butter and fresh arugula are on the bottom bun.  A mound of crispy shallots are piled on top of the patty.  Thick balsamic is drizzled over the top of everything.
.
These might get you to the ½ millionaire line, but when you top the beef patty with a perfectly cooked, grilled filet mignon medallion, you’ve won the lottery!
.
A couple of things to note.  I don’t get the crispy onion/shallot fixation on burgers.  Give it to me on the side.  I normally don’t top my beef with various other meats, but it can be a lot of fun sometimes.  This was one of those times.  I did have a few bites of everything the way it came out and then the crispy shallots and delicious filet mignon medallion were pulled off and enjoyed on their own.  The bun was soft and lightly toasted and very good.
.
I would recommend this burger to anyone and I will come back and try another burger on their menu.  I really like this burger! 🍔😎

Is your burger juicy?  It’s that simple.  If your burger is juicy and has some flavor, that puts me in a good mood right off the bat, and we know how important first impressions are.  If your burger is dry, I’m halfway checked out already.
.
Do whatever you need to do to make it juicy.  Raise the fat content, add butter, you can even mask it a little with a spread, some kind of mayo or aioli, etc.. Just don’t give me a dry burger!  Ok, enough on that.
.
The Cheese Burger at Tavern 4 & 5 was juicy and had some flavor.  We have a winner!  The beef had a nice char to it from their flat top.  The menu says you can upgrade from certified Hereford beef to grass fed beef from 1000 hills cattle company out of Cannon Falls.  I was not asked if I wanted to do that.  It might be an even better option.
.
The Tillamook cheddar is a good choice if American is not offered and it’s not listed. (???) They do have a few other cheese choices as well.  I added grilled onions instead of sweet onions and it was a good choice.  If you want pickles as I do, they call them Betty’s pickles.  They look more like a regular cucumber slice, but still taste like a pickle.  I don’t really want cucumber slices on my burger, so that was good.  The bun was soft and lightly toasted and I was very satisfied with that.
.
They did miss the mark on one thing for me and it is a debated preference for all of us.  Bacon!  When it comes to bacon on my burger, I do not want it too crispy.  A lot of people do and that’s fine.  Not on my burger.  It was a little too crispy for me, but had a good flavor.
.
This is a good burger!  I will come back!  I’m out! 🍔😊
.
French fries – OK.

Tavern 4 & 5 – Eden Prairie / Cheese Burger – 4 out of 5 stars.

They describe it as a “straight up burger”. I’ll agree. It’s straight up good!

This place might not be on your radar, but they’ve got a pretty good burger.
.
Pub 819 - Hopkins / Classic Cheeseburger
.
Overall, a solid burger.  Nothing really jumped out at me and said pay attention, but the beef tasted good, but could have been juicier.  American cheese, decent fried onions, solid pickles on a good brioche bun.  I added smoked pork belly, which was tender and delicious.
.
Even though this burger didn’t “speak to me”, it is worth a stop if you are in the Hopkins area.
.
Fries - good
Chipotle mayo - really good!

If I’m in the race to find a great burger in Lowertown St. Paul, I’ll put my money on the Dark Horse Bar & Eatery.  A pretty cool place with a very cool burger!
.
Dark Horse Bar & Eatery – St. Paul / Dark Horse Burger – 4 1/2 out of 5 stars.
.
The patty is listed as a brisket blend.  It was pretty juicy, flavorful and close to my medium preference.  Smoked Gouda cheese is a good choice.  What stood out for me was the bacon, which is actually more like pork belly.  It is super thick and tasty.  I love their Thousand Island sauce and they were generous with it.  I like the choice of shredded lettuce.
.
I’m liking how places are cutting their pickles in different shapes and styles.  These pickles were chopped up into fairly small chunks and had a dill flavor to them.  You may want to remember this if you are not a pickle person, but I totally am.  It was a nice touch.  The bun is a soft, kind of spongy type thing.  It was lightly toasted as most are, but it did kind of fall apart towards the end.  I don’t mind that at all though.  It’s kind of fun for me to pick up the pieces and put it all back together again.
.
If you are in the Lowertown area of St. Paul and looking for a really good burger as I know you would be, Dark Horse Bar & Eatery should be on your hit list.  I really liked this burger!
.
French Fries – Fantastic!

Dinkytown dining! 😊
.
My dinkytown burger search took me to Blarney Pub & Grill located by the University of Minnesota.  I had zero expectations that this would be anything more than not very good bar food.  I have to say it was pretty good and had a few things going for it.
.
Blarney Pub & Grill – Minneapolis / BPG Royale
.
First off, I asked for pink and they definitely got me pink.  Nothing really stood out about the beef, but it was not overcooked.  I’ll take that as a plus.  A slice of cheddar and a slice of pepperjack cheese seemed to be a good mix.  Romaine lettuce was a little too garnishy for me.  The tomato was fine.  I did like the way they sliced up the pickles in a kind of thin wedge type shape.  The pickles were good.  I couldn’t really find them, but caramelized onions were supposed to be on there.
.
A couple of things did stand out.  The sriracha aioli was delicious and they put a good amount on the burger.  Last, I guess bakeries have figured out how to do pretzel buns.  In the past I have been a little apprehensive about them, but I’ve had some good ones lately and this one was soft, lightly toasted and just a really good bun.
.
Overall, it’s a decent burger option within walking distance of the U of M arenas.
.
French Fries – Good.
Reuben Poppers – Good.

If favorite burger conversation does not include the A Fat Burger from 6Smith, you need to get out to Wayzata immediately!
.
6Smith – Wayzata / A Fat Burger – 5 out of 5 stars!
.
I’ve got a couple of “Best Ever” items from today’s trip to 6Smith.  The A Fat Burger is fantastic!  The first thing you will notice is the lava flow like cheese oozing out from under the bun.  The cheese is Blaser’s Sharp Cheddar fondue from the very well-known Ellsworth Creamery in Ellsworth, Wisconsin.  I have to say this was the best tasting cheese I’ve ever had on a burger.  I would drink this stuff with every meal!
.
The beef includes two ¼ pound, thin patties cooked quickly to seal in the juices.  The delicious applewood smoked bacon is from Nueske’s, and is very well known across the country.  It was very good!  There is also a bacon and onion jam, spread on the close to perfect, lightly toasted brioche bun.
.
There are also slices of fresh tomato, red onions and lettuce and some thinly sliced pickles on the side.  I’ve been getting used to places shredding their lettuce, so I took off the slices of iceberg lettuce just because.  The pickles were ok.
.
I immediately threw the A Fat Burger into my Top 10.  I really love this burger! 🍔
.
French Fries – Possibly the best ever!  Truffle aioli was delicious!
.
Loaded Mac & Cheese – The creaminess and incredible taste of the Blaser’s Sharp Cheddar fondue, along with the Nueske’s bacon, put this at the top of my Best Mac & Cheese I’ve ever had!  Incredible!
.
With all of the excess cheese flowing off the burger and the extra cheese sauce from the oh so creamy Mac & Cheese, you've got some great dipping sauces for those incredible fries! 😎

Annie’s Parlour – Minneapolis, in Dinkytown by the University of Minnesota – Bacon Double Cheeseburger – This was a Super fun, Monster of a mess!  Totally Awesome!
.
We all like to add or modify things when we order burgers.  This was one of the few times I asked myself, “what have I gotten myself into”?
.
I saw the Bacon Cheeseburger on the menu and of course, thought I would add grilled onions, a second patty and an extra slice of cheese.  I was feeling good.  My expectations were in check.  I couldn’t be disappointed.
.
What they brought me was this monstrosity of beef covered in a mound of grilled onions and what seemed like a gallon of cheese.  My jaw pretty much hit the floor and my eyes were like saucers!  I literally thought, Holy Cheeseburger!”.
.
My miscalculations were as follows:  The beef patty I assumed would be ¼ pound, was more like a half pound, so doing the math, the total was probably somewhere between ¾ and a full pound.  Second, I assumed one slice of American cheese would be on each patty.  Nope, two slices each for a grand total of four slices of cheese.  No problem with the grilled onions, right?  Wrong!  I could have spread those out over three burgers!  All this might sound like a problem, but of course, I loved it!  Bring it on!
.
The beef was charred pretty well, but they missed the mark on my medium as I had asked for.  The grilled onions were grilled perfectly and had a nice flavor and were thick and soft.  The bacon was cooked perfectly and had a nice bacon flavor.  The pickles were tangy and good.  The American cheese was extremely plentiful and melted well.  The bun was soft and lightly toasted.  All of the components were good and the burger was good.  I expected an OK burger and this exceeded my expectations.
.
Annie’s Parlour is located on the 2nd floor of a cool, old brick building.  It has a great patio.  I will come back to Annie’s.  This burger experience was awesome! 😎

Hand-cut fries – Delicious!
Peanut Butter Cup Malt – Delicious!

Who has the best Juicy Lucy in Minnesota?  USA TODAY says it's Crooked Pint Ale House.  What do I say?  Not so fast!
.
Crooked Pint Ale House - Apple Valley / Sweet Heat Lucy - 4 out of 5 stars!
.
Let me say that this is a good Juicy Lucy.  I enjoyed it very much.  The combination of the ghost pepper cheese and the sweet chili sauce was delicious!  When you hear "ghost pepper", you think super hot.  This was not.  The sweet chili sauce takes the heat way down.  The cheese had a lot of flavor and good consistency.
.
I've stated before, that for me, burgers and juicy lucy's are in separate categories due to the fact that the meat has to be cooked longer in most cases in order to get the cheese to melt correctly.  That being said, the beef was not overcooked.  It was pink and juicy.  I was impressed!
.
The beef is topped with a slice of monterey jack cheese, mayo, more sweet chili sauce, crispy bacon and haystack onions.  The bacon was a little crispy for me.  One more thing I liked was their use of romaine type shredded lettuce.  It was a nice touch.  The bun was pretty soft and lightly toasted.  It was ok.
.
Back to the hype.  I don't think I'm ready to give the Juicy Lucy crown to Crooked Pint, but the Sweet Heat Lucy should be on your hit list for sure.  You can decide for yourself.  I really liked this Lucy! 😊
