3.5 out of 5.0 stars

The power of social media, specifically Instagram, is undeniable.  I talk about this a lot.  I started my Burger Blog to try and “inspire” people to visit restaurants that have burgers I think they would enjoy.  Do I think it works?  I sure do.  Why?  Because it sure as heck works on me!

I’ll call it “the power of the post”. I ran across a post from @minnycravings featuring the Bacon Cheddar Burger from Farm Table Foundation.  The burger looked good and they said it was fantastic.  Done deal!  Where is it?  Oh, about an hour and a half from my place in an area of Wisconsin I’d never been to.  I had to think about this one for a few minutes.  I asked my wife if she wanted to get out of the house and take a road trip.  Let’s do it, was the answer I got.

The Farm Table Foundation believes that how we feed ourselves matters.  Local farms and small farms providing fresh, more nutritional food to the community is their mission.  My mission was the cheeseburger and fries.

If you are concerned about fresh local ingredients, this is a burger you should try.  The beef was just juicy enough and just seasoned enough.  Two strips of fresh, thick cut bacon adds to that local feel.  The cheese, cheddar, not of the processed variety, was melted nicely over the bacon.  I would have liked it melted over the beef patty instead to allow it to engulf the patty.  The bun was airy and pretty soft, but there was a little density to it.  A delicious dijonaise is spread on the bottom bun.

I would make the trip again, and one of reasons, besides the burger, would be to experience their incredible cheese curds, which might be the best I’ve ever had.  I’m going to let @tcfooddude tell you about those.
