4.5 out of 5.0 stars

When you think of White Bear Lake, you might think of Cup and Cone.  A soft serve ice cream shop that’s been around since 1973.  I would certainly recommend them for your ice cream stop, but if you are looking for a fast casual place to eat before your ice cream experience, I’ve got your place and all you have to do is cross the street.

You may not have heard of Burger Bar, but they’ve been around for three years and I wouldn’t wait any longer to try one of their burgers.  It’s not very often that I go to a place on back to back nights, but I was up in WBL for an appt., and built my burger online and really enjoyed it.  I remembered that I had dm’d them a couple of years ago and they had said I needed to try their roast beef.  I decided to go back the next night, try one of their roast beef sandwiches, and while I was at it, get another burger.

They have quite a few different burgers on the menu including a new burger of the month, as well as an option to build your own.  I built it and they definitely delivered it!

The beef patties are liberally seasoned and get a fantastic charred crust.  I was satisfied with their juiciness.  American cheese is my choice.  The caramelized onions have such a great flavor.  The applewood smoked bacon has a noticeably nice flavor as well.  A few sliced dill pickles are placed on top. The cowbell sauce is delicious.  The lightly toasted brioche bun completes it nicely.  That’s my version of “The Big Cheese”. I did not think two patties were too much beef.  All of these ingredients are delicious on their own and all together made for a fantastic burger!

I mentioned the roast beef earlier.  It was amazing.  @tcfooddude will take you through that experience.
