4.0 out of 5.0 stars

If it’s Thursday, it’s usually Twin Cities Burger Night with the TCBN boys, @phatphood, @shawnsrodgers.  Our special guest tonight is @mnchuck.  We are at the Hyatt Regency on Nicollet Mall in downtown Minneapolis.  A super cool wide open area on the ground floor that is Prairie Kitchen & Bar.

Chef Kevin Patton brought out some very good appetizers before the much desired burgers.  I had the All-American Cheeseburger, which was their July Burger of the Month.  It did so well, they are putting it on their new menu along with possibly another burger.  The new menu will come out in October.  We’ll let you know when it does.

This has two @straussmeats grass-fed beef patties, griddled in butter.  Butter is good.  Both patties are topped with good ole’, great melting American cheese.  A couple slices of bushel boy tomatoes, romaine lettuce and thinly shaved red onions sit on top of the bottom bun and a bunch of dill pickle chips and a slight pouring of tasty Thousand Island sauce top the patties.  The bun is your classic brioche bun.

As an American, I can tell you the All-American Cheeseburger is a good burger.  Don’t let the location deter you.  You can get free valet parking while you are eating.  You are close the the convention center and orchestra hall.  Stop in!

Battered Fries – Very good!

Prairie Poutine – Very good!  The chunks of smoked brisket are delicious.

Ellsworth Cheese Curds – Delicious!  They are battered in Nordeast beer batter.

Be sure to check out posts and stories from @shawnsrodgers, @phatphood & @mnchuck for more details and their burger experiences.  Chef Kevin, @mindpuzzles1 was very accommodating and his service to us was outstanding.  Thank you, Chef!
