5.0 out of 5.0 stars

I’m not sure if anyone has noticed, but I’ve had a lot of 5 star burgers in my recent posts.  The last few months I’ve been revisiting places that were and are my favorite burgers in the Twin Cities.  I’m super close to finishing my Top 25 list.

I initially had this burger at Birch Lowertown, where it was created, but eventually it was added to the menu at their original location on the lake.

The double smashburger is King in the Twin Cities and Birch’s on the Lake’s Birch Burger is part of this burger monarchy.  Their house beef blend is incredibly juicy as you can see in pics two and three.  I asked for a little pink and they delivered.  It’s got the great char as well.  The white American cheese is gooey deliciousness.  Thinly sliced, fantastic pickles line up on the bottom bun.  The bun is lightly toasted and fantastic! Your bonus on this burger is their Kewpie sauce.  It’s delicious!  Get an extra side for the fries.

This burger melts in your mouth.  This burger is elite!

Life on the lake is good, very good!
