3.5 out of 5.0 stars

I’ve been looking forward to seeing what the views are like from Birch’s on the Lake for quite some time.  Now I can say, they are spectacular!

Twin Cities Burger Night, #TCBN, with @phatphood & @shawnsrodgers and myself is back out in the western suburbs, enjoying the patio views of Long Lake, having some beers brewed in house, and dominating a few burgers.  You can choose to go upstairs to the Supperclub or downstairs to the Brewhouse and the patio.

I’m trying the Burt’s Double Burger.  It’s two quarter pound Black Angus Sterling beef patties.  These are the loose beef type, which I love.  They’ve got a good char around the edges as well.  The usual next item is cheese, but somehow I missed that it doesn’t come with cheese.  Never fear, you can add cheese if you like, and next time, I would like, to add cheese.  I think that would have added a little saltiness, which I would have loved a lot more of.  A few thin slices of raw onions top the patties.  A juicy slice of tomato as well.  Shredded lettuce is next, and then a decent amount of their special sauce is slathered on the top and bottom of the super fantastic and perfectly toasted bun from @breadsmith_twin_cities!

Come on out, put some cheese on the burger, and ask for even more special sauce on the side.  That’s your winning combination, along with the view of the lake.  Let me know what you think.  My recommendations for appetizers are the Hot Lobster & Artichoke Dip & the Nashville Hot Smoked Buffalo Wings.  Both are fantastic!
