I’m back out at the original B52 Burgers + Brew in Inver Grove Heights after checking out there new location in Lakeville a couple of months ago. When you’ve got as many Burgers as they do on their menu, multiple trips are a necessity!
If you were early and in line at the @tcburgerbattle this year, you may have heard some yelling and cheering coming from a golf cart carrying someone in a cape and a mask. He was making the rounds getting the crowd excited to get inside and start wrecking some burgers. As it turns out, this man was dressed as a Professional Mexican Wrestler called a Luchador and that’s exactly what B52’s burger entry was named. It certainly has a Mexican flare to it and things are done a little differently than with your normal burger. Their signature beef patty is marinated in chimichurri sauce. This green sauce is a popular marinade for beef. It was cooked perfectly pink for me and was very juicy. Their choice is cheddar cheese and it was melted well. Topping the cheese is a flavorful sweet shallot marmalade, a couple strips of their wood smoked bacon, a few tasty pickled cucumbers and a smooth ghost pepper mayo, giving it a little heat. Don’t let it scare you though, there is more flavor than heat. The bottom bun did get a little soggy with that juicy beef, but was ok. There are a lot of unique flavors with this one. I enjoyed it. It just might be my favorite one on their menu so far. I’ve got a few to go though!
Fries – Very good! Get a side of their chipotle mayo, it’s fantastic!
Pickle Chips – Absolutely loved them! They are cut thicker than most with a thicker batter. The ranch was good, but a little thin for me, so I used that chipotle mayo.
5 Cheese Mac – Very good! I will admit that I can be very critical of dry Mac & Cheese. I really liked this. It was creamy and delicious.
Check out their rooftop patio before summer runs out. It is super cool!
