4.5 out of 5.0 stars

Gold Nugget Tavern & Grille, I’ve missed you so much!  I’m sad to say the last time I had a burger there was in 2015.  It was the Chimichurri burger, which won you the very first Twin Cities Burger Battle.  That burger is no longer on the menu, but if you entered this one, I’m guessing you’d win again!

Gold Nugget has its own weekly burger battle and this burger won 22 straight weeks.  I’m glad it won its way onto the menu.  The People have spoken!  This burger is fantastic!

It certainly starts with the beef.  This special smoked brisket and ground beef patty has an elevated look, feel and taste.  The flavor is off the charts!  It was cooked and seasoned perfectly.  Their house made American chive cheese was a nice little change from the norm.  Very good.

I love the addition of smoked poblanos.  The tomato jam and the bacon mayo finish off this flavorful creation.  The Mainstreet Bakery bun is soft, beautifully toasted and perfect!

Let me say it one more time.  This burger is fantastic!

House cut fries – Very good!

Cheeseburger Wontons – Fantastic!  Get them!

Gold Nugget Tots – Very good!
