  • #TCBurgerNight takes us all over the Twin Cities showcasing Burgers from Fine Dining establishments to local neighborhood bars and restaurants.  This is a first tonight.  We are doing curbside pickup in a parking lot.  But, you know what?  Out of the 76 that @phatphood, @shawnsrodgers & I have done, this one might be the most important!
.
Sandy's Tavern - Richfield / World Famous Sandy's Olive Burger (Double)
.
It's more important that ever to take care of yourself, your family and your local businesses/restaurants.  Think of what they mean to us and what they've done for us.  It's payback time.  They need us!
.
Sandy's is old school goodness.  @daddyomattyo stepped in and bought Sandy's a few months ago.  He's doing his best to keep its legacy alive.  Their World Famous Sandy's Olive Burger is not something you would easily find out in the burger world.  The beef patties are a special Sandy's blend from @swanson_meats.  These two, fresh 1/4 pound patties, charred nicely on the flattop grill, are seasoned and juicy enough for your liking.  A slice of melted American cheese tops each patty.  Sour cream is slathered on the top bun and a bunch of green olives are stuck in the sour cream.  There is no shortage of green olives.  They also give you quite a few sliced pickles to add, which I did.  As you may have guessed, it's better if you like green olives.  I love green olives.  I liked the flavor of them with the sour cream.  The bun was soft, lightly toasted and good.  I'm giving it a thumbs up. 👍
.
Curbside pickup is currently available every day from Noon until 7:00pm.  Order online, pull into their parking lot and call them and tell them you are there.  We got our food at the selected time and enjoyed our meals in our cars, in the parking lot, with correct social distancing.  It was good to see the guys and keep trying to do our part.  Check out Shawn & Phat's posts for a lot more info!

Burger rating - 4 out of 5 stars.

Fried Pickles - Fantastic!
Loaded Potato Kegs - Delicious

  • This week’s #TCBurgerNight may look a little different as the crew of @tcburgersblog, @phatphood, and myself have been trying to do our part to #flattenthecurve . With that being said, we want to continue supporting small businesses responsibly the best we can, so this week we decided that each of us would order curbside pickup at @sandystavern from the comfort (and distance) of our vehicles for our Burger Night. The 85 year old institution in Richfield is currently running curbside pickup from noon-7PM daily, so you can order online on their website through @tockhq or you can call them directly at ‪612.869.9945‬ and they do accept credit cards, which was newly implemented late last year when @daddyomattyo took over ownership. On the burger front, Sandy’s Tavern offers quality burgers without the frills, which keeps in the great spirit of a classic dive bar like their Sandy’s Sizzler pictured here (as a double) which uses two fresh well-seasoned ¼ patties from @swanson_meats w/ pepperjack cheese, chipotle mayo, and jalapeños! Be sure to check out the posts and stories from the rest of the crew about our curbside burger experience. 🍔 .

  • Just three guys sitting in their own automobiles waving at each other while fulfilling their appetites and supporting an old school joint all at the same damn time... Yup, this is #TCburgerNight, curbside edition!

I got my pals, @tcburgersblog and @shawnsrodgers lined up beside me in our mobile dining chairs this evening, and we are at @sandystavern enjoying some burgers that have been blessing the city of Richfield and the surrounding area since 1933!  Currently owned by @daddyomattyo since November 2019 with only a few minor changes since the previous owner retired like; upgrades to craft beer and wine list, more seating, more natural lighting and the use of credit cards.  Let’s get to what we are here for.

Double Bacon Cheeseburger - 2 quarter pound, flattop charred @swanson_meats/Sandy’s blended patties, each covered with American cheese and topped off with bacon.  Served on a lightly buttered and grilled bun with a nice handful of pickle slices.  I got some fried pickles as a side, too!

Hey, it’s a great classic burger with that seasoned flattop taste.  Plus, it’s been far too long since I enjoyed one from Sandy’s so even though we sat in our cars, this was still nostalgic as fuck.

All you gotta do is order online for a friendly zero contact curbside (parking lot) drop off anytime between 12-7pm daily.  Kevin brought all three of ours out at picked time.  Oh, and while you’re on the site ordering, there is a staff donation button under “Merch”, hit that $10 one like the three of us did.

Don’t forget to check out my pals posts and their experience here at Sandy’s.

  • The Treasure Island Center has brought excitement to downtown St. Paul.  Housing the Minnesota Wild’s practice facility and offering ice time to different college, youth and adult leagues.  Currently, there is a drug store, a coffee shop, a brewery, and soon, a pizza place.  As of a week ago, there’s a new sports bar called @thepillboxtavern.  The best way I know to thoroughly check out the burger options, is to call a 75th #TCBurgerNight with @phatphood & @shawnsrodgers.
.
The Pillbox Tavern - St. Paul / The Tillamook Burger
.
This is a sweet place to watch sporting events, hang out with friends and family and enjoy great food and great drinks.  As it should be, Burgers lead the way. 😉  They have three regular burgers and three Juicy Lucy’s, including the Jalapeño Popper Lucy, the 2019 @tcburgerbattle champion, that owner Bill Ashton brought over from @jerseysbar.  Check out Shawn’s post detailing that burger.
.
What I’ve got is The Tillamook Burger.  This one starts with 6 ounces of brisket, short rib & dry aged chuck, with a little butter thrown in for good measure from Rancher’s Legacy Meat Company in Vadnais Heights.  It’s cooked to temp.  It’s juicy, seasoned well and has a nice char on the patty.  Very tasty caramelized onions are generously dolloped on.  White, aged Tillamook cheddar covers the onions.  It’s beautifully melted, thick and drips down the side of the burger.
.
A creamy Dijon mustard is spread on top.  You will notice the mustard taste.  Under the patty are a few delicious, sliced pickles.  The soft, lightly toasted bun from @grandmasbakerywbl is great.  You hear me say it a lot, but this burger lands in the nice, soft feel category.  If feels good in my hands.  It's time for a stop in the capital city!  You'll enjoy this burger.
.
Burger rating - 4 1/2 out of 5 stars.

It was great to meet Bill & Matt.  Thanks for having us out.  Our server, Cindy, was awesome!  Check out Phat & Shawn's post and stories for some great info.
.
Chef Graham Messenger, @thegmessenger is sending out killer menu items.  It was great to chat with him.  More on my website!
.
Sweet Chili Mayo - 5 stars!  Ask for some on the side to dip anything into!

  • Treasure Island Center in St. Paul has a new tenant with the recently opened @thepillboxtavern from the owners of @jerseysbar in Inver Grove who notably took the crown at @tcburgerbattle for both the Judge’s Choice AND People’s Choice for best burger last year, which was a first for the competition. With a menu that includes six burgers, three of which being Juicy Lucys it seemed like a prime spot for @phatphood, @tcburgersblog, and I to visit for a #TCBurgerNight ! The menu from Chef  @thegmessenger who most recently worked at The Fitz has crafted a menu of good pub fare that includes a great take on brussels sprouts, a fried chicken sandwich, and of course burgers! Pictured here is that award-winning burger I previously mentioned: The Jersey’s Jalapeño Popper Juicy w/ 6.4 ounces of chuck, brisket, and short rib stuffed with jalapeños, pepper jack cheese, breaded and deep-fried, topped with jalapeño cream cheese and apricot jam! Well-seasoned patty with a nice char along with a slight bite from the jalapeños, but quickly cooled by the apricot jam. Be sure to check out the post from the guys to see their takes on the evening and see which burgers they got. 🍔 .

  • The first restaurant in the new Treasure Island Center in downtown St. Paul is only a week old.  But, with already having @JerseysBar under his belt, we felt that owner Bill Ashton, along with Shelley Ashton and Matt Bakke, would be more than ready to have a few burger geeks in to host a little gathering called #TCBurgerNight.

@TCBurgersBlog, @ShawnSRodgers and myself are at @ThePillBoxTavern to indulge in 3 of the 6 burgers that Chef Graham (@TheGMessenger) is currently offering on the menu.

I went with their namesake; The Pillbox Burger - Rancher’s Legacy 6oz patty blend of dry aged chuck, brisket, short rib and butter, white American cheese, bacon, fried onion, lettuce, tomato and burger sauce on a @GrandmasBakeryWBL bun.

We were right, they were ready.  Pink, juicy, seasoned nicely with a great char on a choice blend of meat that gave off a hint of savory funk.  The sauce that Chef Graham whips up is the perfect addition to this burger.  Which is his spin on a Russian dressing.  Annnnd you already know that bun is a soft and pillowy cushion of love from Grandma’s Bakery.  I really enjoyed this one.  Fries are McD sized if you choose those over their nice crisp house chips.  Get the same as if sour cream to pair with those, it’s a thinner stronger seasoned version.

This is easily accessible off of Wabasha with plenty of parking options.  I got plenty of more to tell ya, but I’ll save that for another visit.  Be sure to visit my burger fellas for their take on the new sports bar and what they chose to devour.

  • @billysongrandave has been around for over 30 years in St. Paul and a little over a month ago they transitioned with new ownership. A part of that transition includes a complete overhaul of the food menu, which is now being helmed by Chef Jeremy Bechtold @thenorthwoodstable who has cooked in a number of well-regarded establishments around town. With the new menu being in place for almost a month now, @tcburgersblog , @phatphood , and I thought it would be a great time to check it out for a #TCBurgerNight ! The updated menu of elevated bar food includes flatbreads, wings, poutine, and of course burgers. Pictured here is the Mak Daddy, which will be available starting Monday (March 9th) comes with American Cheese, Randy’s Sauce (Their take on the Mac sauce), Shredded Lettuce, and Dill Pickles! The patties are soft in a good way and the bun is nicely toasted along with a good mock on the Mac sauce. Be sure to check out the posts from the rest of the TC Burger Night crew to see their takes on the burgers they had. 🍔 .

  • After 35 years as a fixture on Grand Avenue, a changing of the guard has taken place at Billy's On Grand.  Don't worry, after sampling some of their new menu, myself and the #TCBurgerNight crew of @shawnsrodgers & @phatphood think the changes are all good!
.
Billy's On Grand - St. Paul / Hangover Burger
.
If you're like me, time was spent at @billysongrandave during the many, many years I attended Grand Old Day.  A large patio and so many seats inside, it was always packed with people.  With a new owner comes changes.  There will be decor changes as you might expect, but there is also a new executive Chef brought in to shake the menu up a bit.  Chef Jeremy Bechtold, @thenorthwoodstable has a relatively small menu you'll be able to work your way through.
.
What is a Hangover Burger?  Basically it's a breakfast burger with some hearty ingredients and possibly something spicy.  After a long night out, you might be a little dehydrated or super hungry or need to get woken up a little or need something to soak up that excess alcohol left in your system.  This burger will take care of everything!
.
This one is a 1/4 pound, double patty, chuck, brisket and short rib blend.  The char broiled beef has a softness to it I have never really seen.  It melts in your mouth.  American cheese tops each patty.  There are a few pickled jalapeños adding a nice little kick and some pickled red onions.  A couple strips of nicely cooked bacon are added.  The next ingredient is killer.  Duck sausage gravy is poured over the top.  It's salty and delicious.  It's finished off with a sunnyside up egg, which provides plenty of yolk.  The lightly grilled brioche bun is super soft and buttery.  Some of you may choose to tackle it with a knife and fork.  Not me!  I dove in with both hands!
.
I enjoyed this delicious mess of a burger, immensely!
.
Thank you, Chef Jeremy for hosting us.  @phatphood & @shawnsrodgers have a lot more for you.  You know what to do.

Burger rating - 4 out of 5 stars.

@mspeatndrink Did someone say bacon? The Vat 17 #cheddar #bacon #burger from @rockelmtavernmg was juicy and bursting with flavor from the garlic #aioli and Vat 17 cheese. Just because they could, it was topped with generously thick slices of candied bacon. Time to eat 🍔🥓🧀

  • Heading into the weekend like: we need a burger, a really delicious burger. @jellybeanjulias Chubber Nutter did the trick for us last time. You get your classic bacon cheese burger, top it with a fried egg and slather on some chunky peanut butter. Friends, have you had a burger with peanut butter before? It’s a whole new level of burger awesomeness. 🤤

  • #flashbackfriday to this incredible burger from @willardsmn affectionately called the Perfect Burger from @chefharcey! Only thing that’s changed are the fries which are now standard cut otherwise the same great burger that topped each of the #TCBurgerNight crew’s list last year still makes this worth the trip to Cambridge! They also just added some new dishes to their already stellar menu for even more incentive to visit. 🍔 .

  • It's been a year since I've been to @jellybeanjulias, and I've been looking forward to getting back very much.  This time I brought some friends you may remember, @phatphood & @shawnsrodgers and we'll call this the first #TCBurgerNight of the new decade!
.
Jellybean & Julia's - Anoka / Bacon Jam & Cheddar Burger
.
I've been talking a lot about new menus and new burgers.  I've got both for you.  Owners Cory & Koli have a small, 30 or so, seat restaurant in the Anoka Shopping Center strip mall.  This is the kind of place you want to find and support.  Owners that are passionate about what they do and care so much about the food they create.
.
I've got a new burger that started as a special a month ago, but is headed for the permanent menu, and for good reason.  What you will be remembering and telling people about this burger will be summed up in two words.  Bacon Jam!  If you don't already love bacon jam, there's no question in my mind that you will after devouring this burger.  The bacon jam is pure sweet, savory, sticky goodness.  The incredible flavor was still with me hours later.  It's not subtle, it's in your face incredible!  The 1/3 pound Angus beef patty was juicy, had a good char and was seasoned nicely.  The smokey cheddar was melted beautifully.  Delicious garlic mayo is slathered on the bottom of the soft, lightly toasted bun.  I made this a double patty, but it really didn't feel like too much beef.  This is a sweet, sticky, delicious burger!
.
Burger rating - 4 1/2 out of 5 stars.
.
Other new menu items are the Jalapeño Popper Burger, Potato Salad and the Peach Pig Burger.  Their breakfast features some very unique and creative items such as Cheese Hash & Gravy Waffles, Chicken Wing Waffles & Rib Waffles
.
They pulled off 2nd & 3rd place finishes in the 2018 @tcburgerbattle .
Check out Shawn & Phat's posts and stories.  Their burgers are epic!

  • I don’t make it to the Anoka area too often, but they do have a few dining options worth a visit like @jellybeanjulias, which got @tcburgersblog, @phatphood and I out to this north metro establishment for our first #TCBurgerNight of 2020! Jellybean and Julia’s has been open for a little over three years inside the Anoka Shopping Center where owners Cory and Koli have been serving up BBQ platters, sandwiches, and of course burgers at this food truck turned brick and mortar. Their burger menu includes a number of fun options including the Maconstein burger pictured here, which comes in 1/3 lb patty along with a deep fried mac and cheese patty topped with BBQ ranch sauce, provolone, and bacon! The deep fried mac and cheese stays creamy inside while edges are nice and crispy to give it some added texture along with the bacon. The BBQ ranch sauce also gives this burger a touch of sweetness to round out this well-executed burger. Jellybean and Julia’s also run regular menu specials so be on the lookout on their IG page to see what they have going on at a given moment. Be sure to check out the posts from the rest of TC Burger Night crew to see what they got and their takes on Jellybean and Julia’s. 🍔 🥓 .

  • Awwww, have you missed us?  Yea, sorry, it’s been a minute.  Life, ya know?!
The Burger Boys are back for the Twenty Twin for a meat sweatin’ good time.
If you’re new to this or simply forgot — it’s @tcburgersblog, @shawnsrodgers and myself…and THIS is #TCBurgerNight.  P.S. we got a very good friend of mine, @schmidty047 to join us. 
Roger aka Big Cheese, made us drive a tad bit North/Northwest to a popular mom & pop restaurant in Anoka known for their BBQ, jam and sauces.  They also have some killer burgers...Welcome to @jellybeanjulias. 
I’m here for the Chubber Nutter with a bit of a Phat twist – made it a double, so two 1/3lb patties, each with a 80/20 blend with a lovely char, caramelized onions, garlic mayo,
peanut butter, egg, bacon and I substituted American cheese for the cheddar that is standard on this.  I also added some of their soon to be famous bacon jam.  This all comes together in a @costco bun.  I’m just gonna go ahead and name this the Chubbier Nutter.

Owner/Chef Cory and his daughter Jellybean showed us some wonderful hospitality that harmonized with the food.  This was a big sticky mess of a burger, but the flavor profile was perfect.  Sweet and salty.  I loved it!  If you’re ever in Anoka, swing by the little strip mall that they call a shopping center and stop in J&J for some wood/charcoal smoked meats and some hearty burgers.  Check out the fellas posts and see what burgers they got and what they have to say.

  • We’re flying high after the guys from Twin Cities Burger Night visited last night ✈️
•
 @phatphood One of the perks of living in the Midwest is that when the season changes, many restaurants flip their menus to coincide.  This is exactly why @TCBurgersBlog, @ShawnSRodgers and myself are at @HolmansTable.  They added TWO new burgers to their Fall/Winter menu.  One on the lunch menu and one on the dinner menu.  Appetites up, because burgers are about to go down.  Time for #TCBurgerNight. 🛫NEW BURGER ALERT🛬

300 Dollar Burger - 7oz @reviercattle black angus beef patty, gruyere cheese, madeira truffle demi, foie gras butter, @franklinstreetbakery brioche bun (that will be scaled back in the near future as it’s a bit large). Served with wedge potatoes or salad.

Since this is an airport, It's a play off the $100 meal - which that name derives from when pilots would land for lunch, grab a bite to eat and fuel up, their tab would generally round up to 100 bucks.  They named this burger $300 because it's got that bling bling.  Or as they would describe as elevated, with the presence of foie gras and madeira truffle demi.  It's a slutty and messy burger...with class.  Foie buttah running everywhere.  Very rich, very good!  I highly suggest coming on a Tuesday night like we did and taking advantage of half price bottles of wine.  This @camomiwinery cab paired perfectly with this burger.  just know that this $300 burger is only available at dinner service and goes for $24.

We will highlight their lunch burger at a later date.

  • Last night marked the 72nd #TCBurgerNight with @phatphood & @shawnsrodgers.  I've always looked forward to seeing the boys and dominating any and all Burgers that cross our paths that night.  I had a little extra spring in my step, thinking about a special Burger getting unveiled.
.
Holman's Table - St. Paul / 300 Dollar Burger
.
Holman's Table opened their doors back in January of 2018.  They offered a couple of the same burgers as their sister restaurant, @rockelmtavern.  I remember looking at their menu and saying to myself, those are the same burgers, I don't really need to get out there right away.  That all changes now!  Owner Troy @trexreding and Chef Garrett Green have unveiled their signature Burger, the 300 Dollar Burger, and you are going to want to plan a visit to @holmanstable very soon to check out this decadent beauty!
.
Their beef is Black Angus from @reviercattle out of Olivia, MN.  It was flavorful, juicy, cooked to the perfect pink temp and seasoned pretty well.  The creamy, nutty gruyere cheese is perfectly melted.  A delicious Madeira Truffle Demi is poured over the cheese.  This is a classic French brown sauce made with Madeira wine.  There will be even more sauce added, to mix for dipping going forward.  Adding to the decadence, is a couple of square pats of savory, foie gras butter added at the end to slowly melt over the patty.  The brioche bun from @franklinstreetbakery is toasted beautifully, has a nice soft feel and is a great choice to finish off this outstanding Burger.  The bun will be scaled back size wise a little bit to perfect the meat to bun ratio, although I didn't think it was much of an issue.  This is certainly an elevated, gourmet burger.
.
Chef Green has a bunch of new menu items that you'll love, including some fantastic poutine, but the 300 Dollar Burger is the centerpiece of it all.  Kudos to Troy and Garrett for creating a signature Burger that you can only get at Holman's Table.  Treat yourself to this baby!
.
Burger rating - 4 1/2 out of 5 stars.
.
Poutine Fantastic!
Espresso Crusted Elk - Delicious!
.
Thank you, Troy, for having us in and to Chef Garrett for kicking out some great food!  Check out the boys posts!

  • @holmanstable located inside of the St. Paul Downtown Airport not only provides elevated comfort food, it also provides a beautiful St. Paul skyline backdrop along with great views to watch plane takeoffs and landings throughout the day. The #TCBurgerNight collective of @tcburgersblog, @phatphood, and I met up there tonight to check out one of their newest dinner items, the 300 Dollar Burger! The 300 Dollar Burger is a nod to the “Hundred Dollar Burger” where pilots would fly to a destination, eat there, then fly back. The cost of this aviation endeavor would end up costing $100 when you factored in the cost of fuel and other expenses hence the name. If you live here in the Twin Cities, this burger will only cost you a fraction of that amount, but still comes with some high-quality ingredients. The 300 Dollar Burger comes with @reviercattle beef, gruyere cheese, Madeira truffle demi-glace, foie gras butter, and wedge potatoes! It’s a messy burger, it’s rich, but more importantly very well executed and enjoyable! Having the Madeira truffle demi-glace spill over onto the plate is great to sop up with the potato wedges. The @franklinstreetbakery brioche bun is a new addition, so the bun will be scaled back very soon to have an even better burger to bun ratio. Be sure to check out the posts from the guys for more details and their takes on the evening. 🍔 .

  • One of the perks of living in the Midwest is that when the season changes, many restaurants flip their menus to coincide.  This is exactly why @TCBurgersBlog@ShawnSRodgers and myself are at @HolmansTable.  They added TWO new burgers to their Fall/Winter menu.  One on the lunch menu and one on the dinner menu.  Appetites up, because burgers are about to go down.  Time for #TCBurgerNight. 🛫NEW BURGER ALERT🛬

    300 Dollar Burger - 7oz @reviercattle black angus beef patty, gruyere cheese, madeira truffle demi, foie gras butter, @franklinstreetbakery brioche bun (that will be scaled back in the near future as it’s a bit large). Served with wedge potatoes or salad.

    Since this is an airport, It's a play off the $100 meal - which that name derives from when pilots would land for lunch, grab a bite to eat and fuel up, their tab would generally round up to 100 bucks.  They named this burger $300 because it's got that bling bling.  Or as they would describe as elevated, with the presence of foie gras and madeira truffle demi.  It's a slutty and messy burger...with class. Foie buttah running everywhere. Very rich, very good! I highly suggest coming on a Tuesday night like we did and taking advantage of half price bottles of wine. This @camomiwinery cab paired perfectly with this burger. just know that this $300 burger is only available at dinner service and goes for $24.

    We will highlight their lunch burger at a later date.

There's a new building across from the Galleria in Edina, that looks like a modern day palace.  What is it?  It's an upscale, furniture retailer with two floors of high-end home furnishings and a lot more.  Doesn't this building have three stories?  Yes!  It certainly does.  When you get to the top of the stairs on the third floor, you will say a word or sentence closely related to Wow!  It's a beautiful spectacle.  This is the RH Rooftop Restaurant and it is something you need to experience.  There are trees, plants, a water fountain, couches and chandeliers for you to look at in amazement, all under a glass roof.  The site at night is amazing!  Oh, yes, I almost forgot to tell you about a Burger that's on the menu.  It resembles the famous Double Cheeseburger at Au Cheval in Chicago.  Before I get into the details, I just want you to know, It's Amazing! .
Twin Cities Burger Night #TCBurgerNight with @shawnsrodgers & @phatphood is back in action, checking out this special burger at @restoration.hardware , Shawn said, would shake up the top of our burger list.

I'm going to change it up and talk about the bun first.  Think of a pillow and how it feels in your hands.  This brioche bun from @turanobread has that pillow factor to it.  Soft, toasted and magical.  Two custom blended, 1/4 pound beef patties coming from W.W. Johnson Meat Co., are juicy, cooked to a perfect medium temp and have that soft feel to them.  Sharp American cheese creeps over the sides of both patties and is delicious.  Next, you have a very important choice to make.  Do you want to add their, melt in your mouth, thick cut pork belly bacon to the burger?  The correct answer is, Absolutely!  I would order a plate of it by itself and it only adds to the magic of this burger.  I love the small dice of the red onions, the thin sliced pickles and the tasty Dijonnaise on the top bun.
.
Burger rating - 5 out of 5 stars!  This, my friends, is a Top 10 Burger!

  • Thank you to @startribune’s @ricknelsonstrib for featuring our classic Masterwork Burger in today’s “5 best things our food critic ate in the Twin Cities this week.” “That burger ($11 for a single patty, $14 for a double) certainly slapped a smile on my face, in part because several innovative, flavor-boosting components contribute to its appeal. This bruiser is best approached with a knife and fork, and it definitely belongs in the upper echelons of the Twin Cities burger pantheon.” 📸: @ricknelsonstrib

  • When I first tried the RH Burger w/ their thick cut pork belly bacon at RH Minneapolis in Edina a few weeks ago, I knew it was a top ten burger after the first couple bites, but I wanted to get confirmation that I wasn’t just blowing smoke and get some reliable sources together for an outing. So tonight, @phatphood @tcburgersblog and I met up for a #TCBurgerNight to see if it was indeed reminiscent of the Au Cheval burger and more importantly on my end to see if the consistency was still there. I’m happy to report that almost immediately we were all in agreement that it’s a worthy top ten burger and for me the burger was just as good as the first time I had it! If you order this burger, please get it with the thick cut pork belly bacon for the best possible experience; it’s absolutely worth it! The RH Rooftop Restaurant is doing some great things aside from an outstanding burger, so don’t overlook the rest of their menu. The rooftop restaurant makes for a great date night spot and a place to impress with a group of friends to enjoy the ambiance. I included the burger specifics in an earlier post, but check out the posts from @phatphood & @tcburgersblog who have even more details than I originally had that we were able to confirm with Chef @anton.r.winter tonight who provided great hospitality to our table. 🍔 .

  • So about last night...🤤 Mushroom toast: roasted wild mushrooms, walnut aioli, Montamore cheese, pickled red onion, balsamic, herb ciabatta - it’s insanely delicious, if you go please order this! Swiping the toasts through the balsamic and sea salt results in a heavenly flavor experience. Do not skip this appetizer.
@aj_eats_mn and I had been to @rockelmtavernmg before and absolutely loved everything @stevejohnson99 is cooking up in that kitchen. So when we heard #tcburgernight was hitting up Rock Elm Maple Grove, we couldn’t resist heading back to sit nearby the crew and smash more delicious food. It was absolutely amazing to walk in and be remembered by the incredible staff, it felt like walking into a friend’s house. I don’t say this a lot but y’all need to make it out to Rock Elm’s Maple Grove location, from the service to the food, you cannot go wrong. It was so good to see you @phatphood @tcburgersblog @shawnsrodgers @jillyinmn

  • This week’s #TCBurgerNight may look a little different as the crew of @tcburgersblog, @phatphood, and myself have been trying to do our part to #flattenthecurve . With that being said, we want to continue supporting small businesses responsibly the best we can, so this week we decided that each of us would order curbside pickup at @sandystavern from the comfort (and distance) of our vehicles for our Burger Night. The 85 year old institution in Richfield is currently running curbside pickup from noon-7PM daily, so you can order online on their website through @tockhq or you can call them directly at ‪612.869.9945‬ and they do accept credit cards, which was newly implemented late last year when @daddyomattyo took over ownership. On the burger front, Sandy’s Tavern offers quality burgers without the frills, which keeps in the great spirit of a classic dive bar like their Sandy’s Sizzler pictured here (as a double) which uses two fresh well-seasoned ¼ patties from @swanson_meats w/ pepperjack cheese, chipotle mayo, and jalapeños! Be sure to check out the posts and stories from the rest of the crew about our curbside burger experience. 🍔 .

  • @billysongrandave has been around for over 30 years in St. Paul and a little over a month ago they transitioned with new ownership. A part of that transition includes a complete overhaul of the food menu, which is now being helmed by Chef Jeremy Bechtold @thenorthwoodstable who has cooked in a number of well-regarded establishments around town. With the new menu being in place for almost a month now, @tcburgersblog , @phatphood , and I thought it would be a great time to check it out for a #TCBurgerNight ! The updated menu of elevated bar food includes flatbreads, wings, poutine, and of course burgers. Pictured here is the Mak Daddy, which will be available starting Monday (March 9th) comes with American Cheese, Randy’s Sauce (Their take on the Mac sauce), Shredded Lettuce, and Dill Pickles! The patties are soft in a good way and the bun is nicely toasted along with a good mock on the Mac sauce. Be sure to check out the posts from the rest of the TC Burger Night crew to see their takes on the burgers they had. 🍔 .

  • #TCBurgerNight takes us all over the Twin Cities showcasing Burgers from Fine Dining establishments to local neighborhood bars and restaurants.  This is a first tonight.  We are doing curbside pickup in a parking lot.  But, you know what?  Out of the 76 that @phatphood, @shawnsrodgers & I have done, this one might be the most important!
.
Sandy's Tavern - Richfield / World Famous Sandy's Olive Burger (Double)
.
It's more important that ever to take care of yourself, your family and your local businesses/restaurants.  Think of what they mean to us and what they've done for us.  It's payback time.  They need us!
.
Sandy's is old school goodness.  @daddyomattyo stepped in and bought Sandy's a few months ago.  He's doing his best to keep its legacy alive.  Their World Famous Sandy's Olive Burger is not something you would easily find out in the burger world.  The beef patties are a special Sandy's blend from @swanson_meats.  These two, fresh 1/4 pound patties, charred nicely on the flattop grill, are seasoned and juicy enough for your liking.  A slice of melted American cheese tops each patty.  Sour cream is slathered on the top bun and a bunch of green olives are stuck in the sour cream.  There is no shortage of green olives.  They also give you quite a few sliced pickles to add, which I did.  As you may have guessed, it's better if you like green olives.  I love green olives.  I liked the flavor of them with the sour cream.  The bun was soft, lightly toasted and good.  I'm giving it a thumbs up. 👍
.
Curbside pickup is currently available every day from Noon until 7:00pm.  Order online, pull into their parking lot and call them and tell them you are there.  We got our food at the selected time and enjoyed our meals in our cars, in the parking lot, with correct social distancing.  It was good to see the guys and keep trying to do our part.  Check out Shawn & Phat's posts for a lot more info!

  • Just three guys sitting in their own automobiles waving at each other while fulfilling their appetites and supporting an old school joint all at the same damn time... Yup, this is #TCburgerNight, curbside edition!

I got my pals, @tcburgersblog and @shawnsrodgers lined up beside me in our mobile dining chairs this evening, and we are at @sandystavern enjoying some burgers that have been blessing the city of Richfield and the surrounding area since 1933!  Currently owned by @daddyomattyo since November 2019 with only a few minor changes since the previous owner retired like; upgrades to craft beer and wine list, more seating, more natural lighting and the use of credit cards.  Let’s get to what we are here for.

Double Bacon Cheeseburger - 2 quarter pound, flattop charred @swanson_meats/Sandy’s blended patties, each covered with American cheese and topped off with bacon.  Served on a lightly buttered and grilled bun with a nice handful of pickle slices.  I got some fried pickles as a side, too!

Hey, it’s a great classic burger with that seasoned flattop taste.  Plus, it’s been far too long since I enjoyed one from Sandy’s so even though we sat in our cars, this was still nostalgic as fuck.

All you gotta do is order online for a friendly zero contact curbside (parking lot) drop off anytime between 12-7pm daily.  Kevin brought all three of ours out at picked time.  Oh, and while you’re on the site ordering, there is a staff donation button under “Merch”, hit that $10 one like the three of us did.

Don’t forget to check out my pals posts and their experience here at Sandy’s.

  • When I first tried the RH Burger w/ their thick cut pork belly bacon at RH Minneapolis in Edina a few weeks ago, I knew it was a top ten burger after the first couple bites, but I wanted to get confirmation that I wasn’t just blowing smoke and get some reliable sources together for an outing. So tonight, @phatphood @tcburgersblog and I met up for a #TCBurgerNight to see if it was indeed reminiscent of the Au Cheval burger and more importantly on my end to see if the consistency was still there. I’m happy to report that almost immediately we were all in agreement that it’s a worthy top ten burger and for me the burger was just as good as the first time I had it! If you order this burger, please get it with the thick cut pork belly bacon for the best possible experience; it’s absolutely worth it! The RH Rooftop Restaurant is doing some great things aside from an outstanding burger, so don’t overlook the rest of their menu. The rooftop restaurant makes for a great date night spot and a place to impress with a group of friends to enjoy the ambiance. I included the burger specifics in an earlier post, but check out the posts from @phatphood & @tcburgersblog who have even more details than I originally had that we were able to confirm with Chef @anton.r.winter tonight who provided great hospitality to our table. 🍔 .

  • A few months ago @phatphood and I got to chat with Chef @eli_renn on some of the upcoming menu items he was working on at The Muni (@wayzatabarandgrill) and one of those items was his take on an Oklahoma-style smash burger and it’s finally time for its time in the spotlight. @phatphood previewed this burger a couple weeks ago and gave it high praise, so @tcburgersblog and I knew that it was go time for a #TCBurgerNight with all three of us in tow. This burger is only available during their happy hour from 2PM-5PM, so plan accordingly if you’re in the area. Pictured here is the Butter Burger made as a double (it comes as a single, but I highly recommend upgrading it to a double). It comes with a blend of brisket, unsalted butter, & chuck, red onions, & American cheese on a toasted bun from Main Street Edina Bakery. Over the years, we’ve become big fans of Chef Eli’s burgers at each of his stops and this one is no exception! This burger from their daytime happy hour menu is a very strong contender as a top 10 burger in the Twin Cities. Be sure to check out the posts from the guys to see their takes on another great burger from Chef Eli! 🍔 .

  • Heading into the weekend like: we need a burger, a really delicious burger. @jellybeanjulias Chubber Nutter did the trick for us last time. You get your classic bacon cheese burger, top it with a fried egg and slather on some chunky peanut butter. Friends, have you had a burger with peanut butter before? It’s a whole new level of burger awesomeness. 🤤
