4.5 out of 5.0 stars

If you’ve followed me for a while, I think you could guess my go to burger.  Well seasoned beef patty, juicy and pink.  American cheese, grilled onions, pickles and some special sauce on a soft, lightly toasted bun.  As my luck would have it, I just told you about my latest burger experience in the north metro.

Oliver’s is the latest addition to the Elevage Restaurant family.  It’s located in “The McMillan” apartment/townhouse complex.  It has modern decor, a ton of natural lighting and a comfortable feel to it.  When you walk in, you’ll see their coffee bar area first.  Keep walking a few more steps and you’ll see the restaurant area.  Let’s get to the TC Burger Blog Burger, oh, I mean The Oliver Burger.  A 6oz. house-blend of chuck, sirloin and brisket from Ranchers Legacy Meat Company in Vadnais Heights.  It’s seasoned well, cooked to my pink temp and juicy.  American cheese melted beautifully, of course.  Perfectly grilled onions on top.  They give you plenty of onions.  Quite a few very tasty pickle slices below the patty and a satisfactory amount of delicious special sauce, which you’ll want to get an extra side of for their very good smoked-salt rosemary fries.  When you first see the burger, you’ll notice the beautiful, golden, buttery looking bun.  This egg bun from Hilltop Hearth is all that and more.  It has that soft feel, it’s buttery, it’s lightly toasted and becomes one with the rest of the burger.  A great bun!

This burger is fantastic!  I definitely want you to check it out.

Smoked-Salt Rosemary Fries – Very good!

One thing I love about Oliver’s is that they have a signature burger.  I think that is paramount when you are in a restaurant group and you may have crossover burgers on your menu.
