4.0 out of 5.0 stars

It was nice to be back at Groveland Tap in St. Paul’s Macalester-Groveland neighborhood.  It’s been a couple of years since I was last there.  I’m with the rest of the #TCBN burger team, @phatphood & @shawnsrodgers at this vibrant burger and beer joint.

My usual order was always the Cajun Lucy, which is no longer on the menu, so I was thinking it was time to try one of their regular burgers.  I scanned the menu and the BCO Lucy caught my eye.  It sounded too good and had everything that I love on a burger.  I made the right call!

I’m happy to start with the beef.  We all know how a Juicy Lucy can end up being way over cooked in order to get the cheese melted correctly.  Not this one.  I actually got some pink.  There was a great char on the beef patty AND it was seasoned well! 🙌 There was no shortage of American cheese oozing out from this burger.  I did add a slice of American cheese on top of the patty as well.  I would do it again.  Delicious fried onions top the cheese and a lot of perfectly cooked bacon on top of that.  The bun from @pjmurphysbakerymn was soft, lightly toasted and fantastic!  I was very impressed with the BCO Lucy.  It belongs in the group of Lucys you should have on your list.

If you just need a good beer and a good burger, @grovelandtap should be your place.

Crinkle-Cut Fries – Good.  I got the parmesan-garlic.  Get some Tap sauce to dip them in.

Thursday Night Tacos – Good.  Loved the hard shells.

Deviled Eggs – Very good!
