4.5 out of 5.0 stars

This is the first blue cheese burger I’ve reviewed.  If there are other blue cheese burgers out there like this one, you’ll be seeing a few more posts.

Timing can be everything.  I had planned on visiting a different restaurant in Faribault, but found out it was closed for a few days.  As I was looking for a new place, @visit_faribault liked a post of mine, so I asked them where their favorite burgers were in Faribault.  This was at the top of their list.  I know why!

It only took one bite for the sharp and salty taste of the Blue cheese to show up front and center.  It was delicious!  I can’t think of a better tasting Blue cheese.  If you like Blue cheese, you will love this.  If you google “Caves of Faribault”, you will find out that this was the first Blue cheese made in America back in 1936.

This burger has more going for it than the Blue cheese.  The half pound hand formed beef patty was juicy, flavorful and cooked just the way I like it.  They add some tasty caramelized onions and give you a few pickles on the side.  The bun was soft and lightly toasted and had that nice little crispy edge around it.

This one of those soft, melt in your mouth burgers.  I really loved this burger!

So, if a family member wants to do some shopping at the Medford Outlet Center, make sure you negotiate a stop in Faribault at the Depot Bar & Grill for this burger!

French Fries- Very good
