3.5 out of 5.0 stars

My burger journey has taken me all over Minneapolis, but I had not been to the Seven Corners area for a long, long time.  What’s my problem?  I’m with my Twin Cities Burger Night team of @phatphood and @shawnsrodgers rockin’ Republic with our special guest @tasha.dahl !

What I love about the #TCBN team is that collectively we can try a ton of different burgers and food items and let you know about all of this good food.  Republic has a great burger selection including a turkey burger and a vegetarian option if you so choose.  Myself, beef reigns supreme!

My choice was simply the Bacon Cheeseburger.  The beef had some juice to it.  I chose aged cheddar, which was melted very well and had some good flavor to it.  You can also choose Bleu cheese as well.  The bacon was cooked the way I like it.  They throw some caramelized onions on it for you as well.  The brioche type bun was soft, lightly toasted and good.  They keep this burger simple and sometimes that’s the best way to do it.  They do have a garlic aioli and what they call Yum Yum sauce.  I lobbed some of that seriously tasty Yum Yum sauce on my burger and it made it even better.

Make sure to check out posts from @shawnsrodgers , @phatphood & @tasha.dahl for their burger takes.

A special thanks to Emily and her staff for taking care of us and Rebekah for setting this up.  Thank you, Tasha for joining us.  It was great to meet you!

House-Cut French Fries – Very good.  Get the Yum Yum sauce for dipping!
