Congratulations to Mahtomedi High School on their first Minnesota State Boys High School Hockey Championship! I’ve got an idea where Mahtomedi’s favorite son, Tommy Olson, former Gopher Football Star & current KFAN Power Trip Contributor, might have celebrated.
A great place to kick back, relax, have a drink and some great scratch-made food. There were so many things on the menu I wanted to try, like their wings, grilled cheese, poutine, the pork belly blt and the beer braised short ribs. I also wanted a burger, and their signature Tavern Burger seemed like a great choice.
The hand-crafted beef patty is flame broiled, hit my temp, was seasoned ok and was pretty juicy. American cheese is the choice. Melt it a little more for me, please. Under the patty, you get a tomato slice and some chopped lettuce, which is bathing in their delicious wildwood sauce. There is some of that sauce on top of the burger, but I added a little more. The pickles are great. The bun is soft, lightly toasted and very good. It has that little crunchy ring around it. Get a side of the Wildwood sauce for their house cut fries. Check out their house made tater tots. If you make your own tots, I’m ordering tots!
The Wildwood Tavern is a great option in the northeast part of the Twin Cities.
Hand Cut Fries – Very good!
Tater Tots – Very good!
