The Skippy Burger
I hardly ever post food pics, but this deserves a mention. I had dinner tonight at Big Louie’s on West Broadway in Crystal. The history of Big Louie’s stretches back to 1927 when the family first opened a bar in northeast Minneapolis. Currently they have two locations, with the other being in New Brighton.
But back to the burger.
The “Skippy Burger” is an Angus patty covered in Pepper Jack cheese, Applewood smoked bacon, sliced pickles, mayonnaise, and you guessed it…Skippy Peanut Butter.
I destroyed this thing.
And I probably shaved a week off my life by eating it, but who cares, the spirit of Elvis approves.
Dinner at Burger Jones
Tonight’s dinner was the Mushroom Swiss burger brought to you by Burger Jones on West Lake Street.
The burger had plenty of mushrooms and was tasty, but the fries were so-so.
Maybe I was just freaked out by the fact that when I have my glasses on, I look just like the Burger Jones guy.
And that concludes another thrilling restaurant review by Stuff about Minneapolis.
Today’s lunch was brought to by “The Suzi Burger” at Psycho Suzi’s.
According to the menu, the Suzi Burger is…
A secret blend of beef, butter, and seasoning, topped with caramelized
onion, provolone cheese, and red pepper mayo.
As with any time I do a “food review”, I always tell you to go to The Heavy Table, and for those of you in the south metro, Lazy Lightning by Bill Roehl, is another favorite blog of mine that mixes in some solid restaurant reviews.
This was a very tasty burger, you guys. And they serve it with tots.
Today’s lunch was the “42nd Avenue Burger” by Papa’s Cafe in New Hope.
Nothing fancy here kids, just a solid hamburger with shaved ham and swiss cheese on top. Papa’s, on 42nd Avenue N, is one of the better greasy spoon joints in the north metro.
Today’s lunch was brought to you by “The Perfect Burger” at Victory 44 on the Northside.
I might go back today and have another one of these for a midafternoon snack.
